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

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
