What people are saying about Foz do Iguaçu

Wonderful tour. The only important thing is that I think it is described in a somewhat approximate way among the offers of get your guide: the bird park tour and this one of the waterfalls is a unique tour, even if they are sold separately in the app. Both great. We first did the bird park, then the walkway that runs along the waterfalls, lunch break, then with the macuco safari in the forest, the walk and finally the boat ride. Tip: it is good to bring a change, before getting on the boat there are lockers and therefore slippers can be put on AFTER finishing the path in the woods. Each part of the tour more beautiful than the other. The guide very helpful and nice.

A perfectly executed tour. Our driver/guide William was very friendly and took care of everything. We had a lovely few hours in Ciudad del Este.

Cesar was amazing. Very helpful and crossing the border was easy. He did everything for us. Thank you
