I questioned a lot whether or not we should do the helicopter tour: it is one of the most expensive attraction and only 10 minutes... But it was for us a good experience to fly helicopter and over iguacu falls... which better place? Flight is about 10 minutes, I did not timed as once we approached, the scenery was so... More

We booked the tour for 30 minutes... Welcomed with a freindly staff, we waited for 30 minutes (we did not book in advance) on a nice waiting area... Then the very modern and perfectly maintained helicopter took us above the river. We could see the paraguay friendly bridge, then we flew to the biggest water power plant... Just impressive... Then... More

It was really short, really expensive, really amazing! I had helicopter ride and the falls on my bucket list so I went for it but you get great views no matter what. Decide base on your budget. Better to go now than later cause it will only get more expensive haha. I would actually recommend hiking in the park first... More

A great service and an amazing view. It worth the trip for sure. Although the trip is fast, you will see the falls from a priviledge perspective. I strongly recommend.

This review is for Helisul in Brazil....(Ithink there may only one place you can go to get a helicopter ride). It was awesome! Perhaps a bit dearer than other helicopter rides we've taken, but as it seems to be the only one available they have the monopoly. Our driver was very friendly and seats seem to allocated according to size... More

We were extremely unhappy with our experience. When buying the tickets we were told by the man at the counter who spoke English that we could avoid a middle seat if we were the first couple in line. When we got into the waiting area we noticed we were going to just miss the next flight, making us first in... More

After seeing both sides and doing the boat ride, it seemed just appropriate to also do the helicopter tour to get the full experience. It is very expensive and the ride is fairly short, but it was still enjoyable. The people working there are quite friendly and helped us get a private transport back to Argentina when we missed our... More

Just don't miss it. Wonderful views from all sides utterly thrilling unforgettable ten minutes flying over the falls. The queues looked long but we waited only 15 minutes for our tour over the falls
