My partner and I paid $95 (USD) each for a 10 minute scenic flight over the Iguazu Falls with Helisul. Having seen the falls up close on the Argentine side, I was really looking forward to seeing them from the air, to get another perspective and fully appreciate this amazing site. However, I came away feeling very disappointed and let... More

After spending the day exploring the Brazil side of the falls, we decided to spend the $95US each and take the helicopter ride over the falls. The sights were incredible! The view upstream at the never ending water was stunning, but paled in significance of the aerial shots of the Devil's Throat. As it was our honeymoon, we had no... More

This was not a part of our tour but friends suggested that we do this if we have time. Not cheap but totally worthwhile as it gives one a full view and idea of how incredible the Falls are. Make sure to get a window seat - they take 4 passengers and one sits in the middle at the back.

I have taken other helicopter tours so I am not a newbie. I expected a lot better than we got. The tour is only ten minutes long, but about half that time is taken up in getting to and from the falls. They circle a couple of times and unfortunately our pilot gave the left side of the copter all... More

Absolutely worth every penny. This was my first "helicopter ride", and I enjoyed it like a little kid!! The pilot made quite a few turns so that we could all have awesome views. I got super lucky and was in the front seat and could not even take one pic because I was too amazed to do anything but open... More

This was an incredible flight over the falls. Great pilot! He made sure everyone got a camera angle. Well worth the money, remember it is not cheap to keep these machines airborne. This, as someone who knows flying, is a bargain!!!

I did this helicopter tour the last time I was at Iguazu 7 years ago. It was one of the highlights of my trip. So this time when I brought my family here I insisted that they do the helicopter flight as well.It was actually cheaper than when I did it. The flight is only ten minutes but for my... More

Helisul, on the road into the national park is really popular, but at $120/person we didn't think it was worth it. We've done helicopter tours before, so this wasn't our first. Yes, the falls are amazing, but it was way too difficult to get photos and it was very much an assembly line of tourists......sure didn't feel anything special about... More
