Allow at least 2 hours to have the slow rainforest guided trip to the river, the boat trip and transport back to the main tourist bus stop. The boat ride up the river is exciting enough but the close-up spray and sound from the bottom of the falls is fantastic! It always felt safe and we had a great view... More

This was a great experience, however be aware that YOU WILL GET WET! But worth it and so go for it,just take a sturdy rain poncho with you and have a cover for your camera as well if it's not water resistant.

You can't go to the falls and not do at least one boat trip into the water to get wet. We did both sides. If you score a boat with a lot of Japanese they seem to give you more runs under the water as I think they get tips. Or they want the Japanese to go back and say... More

This is a must do in my book. The guide was really friendly and spoke 3 languages including english. Really enjoyed the optional guided walk through the forest but the highlight was the exhilarating boat ride into the falls. You WILL get wet, no wait, soaked, so bring a change of clothes and leave it in the lockers.

U take a boat to go near to the falls. It's better to go without shoes. It cost in January 2016, 200R$ for a not that long ride.

The so called trail in the forest is a 500 m walk on a side walk with a guide who did not know too much about the trees and the forest. Poor. The boat ride to see the falls from the river was scaring and dangerous. It is a high speed ride with almost no time to observe the falls.... More

This was a great way to see the falls up close and to experience a bit of excitement. I only wished we could have seen more falls than the single one they showed us and that the "safari" lasted a bit longer.

Incredible ride. Safe and quite well organized. The problem is the price. For the brazilian tourist, it's pretty steep (R$ 180,00 per person in december, 2015. Roughly USD 65,00). That's the only reason I didn't rate it "excelent".

Don't bother with the rain gear or coverings. You might as well just take it. That's half the fun. Storing dry clothes is probably not a bad idea though. When the falls are dropping 1.5 million gallons per second and your boat driver is a sadist, sit back and enjoy the ride...and the shower
