You leave on a little train, the guide explains what you see etc.. and you take the boat to go to the falls, it is a great fun and an experience that you need to do (although a bit expensive). Be aware : you come back fully wet. There are lockers just before the boat where you can leave your... More

The organization of the whole tour is good, BUT!!! If you want a nice experience go to the Argentine side and then rent a boat. There you can see both side of waterfall and also go out from both. The enjoyment you can NOT find on the Brazilian side. What can you find? Photos and video of poor quality and... More

I suggest to take the boat ride under the falls: in august the water is cold but it's a shower you'll remember for ever. The whole tour is well organized and you find lockers at the pier with dressing rooms where you can change. To me it looks a nonsense trying not to get wet, just wear a swimsuit and... More

This trip will take inside the waterfalls (literaly). Consists of a high speed boat that will take you very near to the fall through the river. You will get wet, that's for sure. Tip: if you want to get very wet, go up front. It is not cheap but very nice.

If your only purpose is to get extremely wet you came to the right place. If you thought the boat trip was your chance to see the falls from the bottom, you may think this is a total rip-off. The price is US$ 30 and they will only bring you to the first fall. They sail into the fall to... More

I did this tour 16 years ago and feel like I didn't get as wet...at least not on purpose. The weather and visibility was bad, the water was super high, and we were limited to how far up the river we could go. I feel like last time we didn't purposely drive under falls to purposely get everyone soaked (though... More

We did quite all the activities in Iguacu: helicopter, argentinian park, brazilian park... macuco safari is the activity that will bring you the closest to the fall and to tasting the water :) We simply loved it. Car ride / walk is a slow preparation to the very awaited boat ride. Driver is super good and will navigate you to... More

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
