We noted that during busy times, the helicopters are full, and some seats have very poor views. So we swallowed hard, and opted for the private flight. Ten minutes expanded to 35, we overflew three countries (Brazil and Argentina and Paraguay), and the second largest hydroelectric dam in the world, and then did two passes over the falls. The pilot... More

Took some great pics. The pilot made some really deep turns and gave everyone the opportunity to take many pics / get various views; he made several turns around the falls. I do agree with a prior poster, though, I think the back middle seat on the 7-seater is the worst - if you want to take pictures. It is... More

The copter overflew the falls for a few minutes providing a nice panoramic view. The noise of the engine precluded explanations or hearing the falls. Doubtful from a cost/benefit point of view.

The helicopter trip is great but the video is a scam. About 30 seconds of us boarding the helicopter and then just a general video of the falls which can be bought much cheaper somewhere else. Enjoy the helicopter ride but stay away from the video!

Unless you get a front seat or only a 4 seater helicopter this is not worth it .Got stuck in a 7 seater helicopter in the back seat in the middle with large people on the sides to balance the weight .3 people in the front with their cameras up so hardly saw a thing and it was so hot... More

We went for the helicopter ride and did not regret any single Minute. The view was amazing and you get a real overview of the big-and boldness of the waterfalls. Try to sit in the front row next to the Pilot (Two seats avail) to have a good 180 degree view. If you have to sit in the back, try... More

My first time in a helicopter and what an amazing experience. Well worth the US$120.00. You will see Iguazu Falls at its most stunning. Absolutely mind blowing. Being in the front seat i was able to see the incredible power of these falls and there were so many to see. I would highly recommend this as a must if you... More

Wish it could of lasted a bit longer but the views were amazing. Try to get a front seat next to the pilot for the best views. Helicopter is very new and suprisingly comfortable and the trip gives you a great chance to see how big the falls actually are, Take a video recorder or camera because it will give... More

I took the helicopter ride over the falls last august with my husband and son. It was a great experience and the helicopter offers wide windows so that all passengers can view the falls. The maximum number of people on each ride is 6, 2 of them take a seat on the front seat (next to the pilot) and the... More

We flew today over the falls. Had to wait about 45 min to get enough people to board the helicopter. Flight was over before we knew it, we struggled to get some good pictures, but didn't succed. Really not worth it. Much better views from below. But if you do try it, refrain from taking videos/photos and just enjoy the... More
