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

The helicopter trip was short and expensive, and a bit annoying that you couldn't book ahead. The system was turn up and queue. Our guide got us there half hour before it opened and we were first in the line. But the line grew steadily as the day went on with wait times increasing to two hours or more. A... More

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
