You can't appreciate how big and massive the falls are until the view them from the air. The trip only lasts a half hour but it is worth the price. Our pictures from the air are completely different from the ones on the ground.

This is not cheap (it cost $116 US for one person) but, as most of the reviews tell you, it is worth it. The trip is almost exactly 10 minutes and the pilot does circle 3-4 times so each side of the helicopter gets great views. They go with a minimum of 3 people and take up to 5. Trust... More

It may be pricey for a 10 minute flight but a birds eye view is the best way to see the falls. Worth every penny!

You really get to appreciate the length / wonder of these falls from the helicopter - amazing. Did not need to book, just turned up and only waited about 10mins to board, luckily enough to have helicopter to ourselves. The view is amazing and you circle 3-4 times round falls. It's only 10 mins but well worth it for a... More

That is the best view of Iguassu Falls period. If you can afford it, do not miss this opportunity. Me and my wife traveled in the 7-people helicopter which is comfortable and offer great view no matter where you are sit! This is a lifetime experience! Enjoy!

Most people take the 9 or 10 minute trip which gives only a few minutes over this magnificent sight. The 35 minute tour cost over 3600 rials for 2 passengers but was worth every last penny, cent etc. You trace the Iguassu river to the point where the borders of Brasil, Argentine and Paraguay meet before flying over the Itaipu...

If you make the trip to Iguazu Falls and that is an amazing experience in itself, what caps it off is a helicopter ride over the falls. It is not that expensive (about US$120), it lasts 10 minutes, but is really sensational. The falls are great to look at but the perspective you get from the air is an entirely... More

We first visited the Argentine side then the Brazillian side. The falls were fantastic in size and volume but the view from the air gave the total picture. There were 5 in the chopper plus the pilot. The front seat is good but either of the rear windows provides excellent panoramic views. The pilot did 2 360 turns over the... More

Not cheap at rs315 each (about £85) and not great from an environmental standpoint but the views are amazing and give a wonderful perspective on the setting of the falls within the rainforest. Not as wonderful as the trail walks in Brazil or Argentina but once you have seen the falls from the ground on both sides, this is a... More

The helicopter ride is a must if you are at the falls as it makes 'sense' after you see them from the air. I wouldn't spend a dime extra for more time (just do the 10 minute ride) as that is all you need and the extra isn't worth it. TIP: It is first come, first served, so plan on... More
