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

Views were stunning! The helicopter ride was very smooth and the pilot did some awesome turns that gave you an adrenaline rush! Fantastic activity! £59 well spent!

I did all the touristy stuff around the falls (on both the Brazil and Argentine sides) except the safari-boat tour (because I ran out of time). And the helicopter tour was definitely my personal favorite! It might seem at first like a lot of money for 10 minutes, but it's pretty unforgettable. Absolutely bring your camera! If you're in pairs... More

You will pay a little more than US$ 100,00 per person for a 10 minute flight over the Iguaçu Falls. Does it seems a little too much? It is definitely not. The flight is worth every dime! I took my 9 year old with me and his sparkling eyes were the most accurate measure of everyone’s emotions onboard. The pilot... More

This is a lot of fun and you get the best views of the Brazilian and Argentina sides of the falls; not to mention you can see the river for a few miles emptying into the falls. Make sure you get a 4seater chopper as this has small portholes and you can stick your camera out to get some amazing... More

While the flight is short (about 10 minutes) it was great value for money, seeing this spectacular waterfall from the air. I got to sit in the front, which felt like winning the golden ticket. Not sure if my experience would have been as stunning if I'd had to sit between two large passengers in the back. There is no... More

We took the Helicopter flight over the Park, the Belmond Hotel and the Falls. A view you will not forget. Wonderful. Cost was around AUD140 each and it was for about 15 minutes. Extremely good value for the experience you get.
