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

We noted that during busy times, the helicopters are full, and some seats have very poor views. So we swallowed hard, and opted for the private flight. Ten minutes expanded to 35, we overflew three countries (Brazil and Argentina and Paraguay), and the second largest hydroelectric dam in the world, and then did two passes over the falls. The pilot... More

Took some great pics. The pilot made some really deep turns and gave everyone the opportunity to take many pics / get various views; he made several turns around the falls. I do agree with a prior poster, though, I think the back middle seat on the 7-seater is the worst - if you want to take pictures. It is... More

The copter overflew the falls for a few minutes providing a nice panoramic view. The noise of the engine precluded explanations or hearing the falls. Doubtful from a cost/benefit point of view.

The helicopter trip is great but the video is a scam. About 30 seconds of us boarding the helicopter and then just a general video of the falls which can be bought much cheaper somewhere else. Enjoy the helicopter ride but stay away from the video!
