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

After we had a wonderful time exploring Iguacu National Park on the Brazil side we went to take the helicopter ride to see this famous falls up high. My husband got the best seat, he sat at the front. I sat at the back and still had a clear view. From up there I had the perspective view of how... More

We did the flight and thought that it was well worth it. We were there soon after the opening time and went on the second flight for the day. We got good views of the falls with the helicopter making a number of passes at the falls. From the air you can really get a perspective of the size of... More

It's wonderful to have a panoramic view from a chopper of one of the 7 natural wonders, the iguaçu falls. But in my opinion, the real experience with these lies in the Argentinian side at the natural park. I also think it's a bit expensive 120 USD for 10 minutes in a chopper and what I found most disappointing was... More

A tremendous experience Our helicopter took 5 passengers one in the front and 4 of us behind The pilot made sure we all got good views over the falls probably the middle seats would not be fantastic for photography but the views from all seats were magnificent. Photos and videos were available after the flight. A short wait was necessary... More

After seeing both sides of the falls from the ground level. It was absolutely amazing experience to jump on Heli and see it all from above. I had a front seat so can't comment on wether this was the only spot which would give you the best view. People behind me seemed to have a great time and nobody complaint... More
