This is a great tour that takes around 3 hours. The safari at the start isn't that exciting, regardless of whether you stay in the car or do the walk. The boat ride makes up for it though. You will get absolutely soaked during this so don't take anything electronic or valuable! You get to see a lot of the... More

On the Brazilian side you will probably have time to do a tour after doing the main trail that leads to the falls. This is a perfect tour. The first part is a safari tour through the forest. It is a little disappointing because it is very short, but then you get to the boat ride which is the best... More

Prepare to be totally wet - do not forget extra dry clothing or take swimsuit!!! Great experience - to see and feel the falls from absolutely different point of view, but really really overpriced! The staff is great and the tour through the rain-forest is quite interesting. It is not must-do attraction, but if you have enough money why not... More

Very nice to see some of the forest and be on the Parana river with a fast boat. Nice experience, but not necessary to see the impressive Iguassu Falls. Because you have to enter the park (and pay entry) to the Park, which gives you all views on the Brazilian side of the Iguassu Falls. Macuco races you through the... More

I think the ponchos are just a token gesture as they have no impact of keeping out the wet! It was so funny and just a great time. We laughed and laughed. The boat drivers seem to really know what they are doing. Quite a fees steps down the the loading platform. There are lockers and toilets onsite. If I... More

If you want to get really close to the falls and are not afraid to get wet, this is for you. The ride is exciting, speeeding along the river around rapids and past some of the more spectacular falls - and right into a couple of them, so you are well advised to dress (or undress) accordingly: you will get...

Ask them if you can take boat ride only, and nothing else - the rest is realy annoying way of time-wasting. Insist that you want to go in and out, no "botanical garden" and "legend telling" neverending stories in three languages (unless you wanna hear them). It should take you half an hour, instead two and a half!

The best, best part of this excursion is the actual speedboat ride up to the falls. You get soaked to the bone, but it is a lot of fun. The down side is that you do not go under the falls or get a full view of the falls, so this ride as beautiful and wet as it is, is... More
