A little expensive, but very worthwhile. Family really enjoyed the experience and it was definitely a highlight the trip. 13 year old son said it was the best part of our vacation. Pilot and staff were very professional and efficient. Definitely recommend.

This ten minute flight was fantastic. The cost was worth it for the amazing views, much better than the boat experience. The only downside was the CD we purchased afterwards. It should have shown us getting into the helicopter and taking off but we did not check until we returned home and the CD was corrupted. Check before you leave... More

The best way to see all the falls and start to wrap your mind around the incredible power of nature and the magnitude of the beauty. The trip was short, but long enough for us to have some really special views of one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Definitely worth the money.

My father and I usually don't splurge on adventure things when we travel, but this was truly a spectacular experience. We both have never been on a helicopter ride, and this first time was awesome. It was organized and fast. The helicopter made 3 passes so that both sides could see the falls. Total trip time was around 12 minutes,... More

You can't appreciate how big and massive the falls are until the view them from the air. The trip only lasts a half hour but it is worth the price. Our pictures from the air are completely different from the ones on the ground.

This is not cheap (it cost $116 US for one person) but, as most of the reviews tell you, it is worth it. The trip is almost exactly 10 minutes and the pilot does circle 3-4 times so each side of the helicopter gets great views. They go with a minimum of 3 people and take up to 5. Trust... More

It may be pricey for a 10 minute flight but a birds eye view is the best way to see the falls. Worth every penny!

You really get to appreciate the length / wonder of these falls from the helicopter - amazing. Did not need to book, just turned up and only waited about 10mins to board, luckily enough to have helicopter to ourselves. The view is amazing and you circle 3-4 times round falls. It's only 10 mins but well worth it for a... More

That is the best view of Iguassu Falls period. If you can afford it, do not miss this opportunity. Me and my wife traveled in the 7-people helicopter which is comfortable and offer great view no matter where you are sit! This is a lifetime experience! Enjoy!

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...
