I was rather nervous..with good reason! We actually drove under the 3 waterfalls called 'The three musketeers! We were soaked! Our guide 'wilson' was mad...jumping round the boat taking pics and video. It was a great experience and very glad I did it! It was perfectly safe and a lovely feeling with the group of fun and laughter. We bought... More

I didn't read the small print and didn't realise that 1) it was a white water boat trip and 2) that I would get very, very wet I can't say that enjoyed it but I am glad that I did it and have got the DVD to show my children

Dear Cennet53, We are glad for your evaluation. Before starting the tour, we have an information desk, explaining about all the tour, and there they also inform you're going to get wet, once you're making a tour on the river, as all the experiences in the water. Hope you come back to enjoy! Kind Regards, Marketing Departament More

Well organized. Really nice walk through forest to get to the embark area. Safe boat ride throug the canyon of the river. Beautiful landscape and exciting ride by some minor falls. Be prepared to get soak!! But it is worth it!!

Great way to see falls as you travel in speed boat towards falls. It takes a it of hike through the woods and jungle to get to the safari. Wear swim cloths as you will be taken under the falls and will get wet. Main falls are not accessible via speed boats so you will be taken to falls that... More

We had a fantastic trip "one of my best experiences ever". It was a journey though Brazilian jungle then a 600m walk followed by the exhilarating white water-style boat trip to the foot of the Iguassu Falls. We had not been told to take money with us so could not use a locker for shoes. They had great fun taking... More

Our tour guide kept telling us we were going to get wet then the boat driver told us we were going to get. Really do you think going under a water fall will make you wet? We had a blast, a wet blast but a blastl We were all laughing so hard and it was just a lot of fun... More

I would highly recommend this short but exciting boat ride. The boats take you right up to and virtually under a section of the falls so everyone in the boat gets soaked. They have lockers for your stuff at the launch so anything you want to keep dry leave there. Riding these boats up river and against the rapids is... More

This is a very touristy but quite wonderful 30 minutes on the water preceded by an electric cart tour through the forest to get there. Take your camera in a zip lock bag. Wear clothes (bathing suit is best) that can get wet. You will want the photos but, at one point for about five minutes you will be drenched... More

This tour is a bit touristy but we would go again. You get "100%" wet so be prepared. Wear lightweight clothing or a swimsuit. They give you a bit of the ecology on the way down. Enjoy.

We very much enjoyed our visit to the Macuco Safari. Most of the staff are quite good and engage the visitors nicely, but a few seem to be a little bored and could benefit from some training. There was a nice electric car ride through the forest which we enjoyed, and then a short walk past a waterfall down to... More
