  • From Puerto Iguazu: Argentina & Brazil Sides of Iguazu Falls

    2. From Puerto Iguazu: Argentina & Brazil Sides of Iguazu Falls

    Get your camera at the ready and prepare for a truly memorable experience! Explore the 200,000-year-old Iguazu Falls on this day trip to the Argentinian and Brazilian sides. The falls span across the border of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay and are known to pour over 400,000 gallons of water a second onto the rocks below. On the morning of your tour you'll be picked up from your hotel and be driven outside the city to the national park. Spend the day exploring the falls, learning about their history, and admiring the stunning views. Explore the 3 tiers of the park to see the falls from different vantages.

The upper path leads to incredible panoramic views of the falls from an extensive footbridge – an unforgettable experience. You will be guided throughout the tour bu...

    This tour include transfer from airport to the hotel which is good. Next day the guide pick me up from the hotel on time. You will have time to walk 2 trails on Argentina side. The guide took us to the Devils Throat first, then we walked the upper trail. Did not have enough time to do the lower trail as well. The guide told me I have to wait at the entrance at 12.30pm to be transferred to Brazil side. The transfer took quite a bit of time, because the driver pick us up to go back to Puerto iguazu town, and then have to transfer to another bus which go to the Brazil side. By the time we arrived at the trail, we get 1.5hours roughly to walk the trail. If you have time, I definitely recommend doing two sides in two days, a bit rush to do it in a day. I loved the Brazil side, you will get wet at the trail near the devils throat.

  • Morretes: Full Day Colonial Town Tour from Curitiba

    3. Morretes: Full Day Colonial Town Tour from Curitiba

    Venture by train through the Atlantic rainforest, with its unique flora and fauna, to the historic colonial town of Morretes, nestled at the foot of the Serra do Mar mountains in the state of Paraná. From your Curitiba hotel in the morning, you'll be shuttled along some of the best preserved rainforest in southern Brazil, to the foothills at the Serro do Mar where Morretes awaits. You'll explore the historic center of the town, strolling amidst the quaint 18th-century architecture, old colonial houses and churches, and through the craft market. You'll stop for lunch on the banks of the Nhundiaquara river to feast on the region's traditional Barreado, a meat-dish cooked slowly in a clay pot for several hours, then served over rice, with fruit, and a side of breaded fish. No Brazilian experience is complete without a taste of its wholesome cuisine!

    Overall the trip was great but the train I didn't give it five stars is because when I was given the train ticket the seat was in the section where no English announcements would be given. I wad told by the tour guide I'd need to pay in another $R200 to get a seat in the English section. I then produced my voucher and another attendant arranged a seat in the correct section. I also felt that the Antonino visit was a bit rushed. The tour guide and bus driver were excellent

We were there first thing in the morning at 9 and got there after 2 minutes. We got there by taxi. They're very cheap here. The mobile voucher was not enough but I sent it via email over the wifi and it was printed out there. The helicopter ride was breathtaking. I also thought it was much better than the boat tour. 10 minutes is short but enough in my opinion.

Brazil side of falls was a very different perspective than the Argentina side. Far less walking for those interested. Great. Experience. Trip confirmation and actual pickup / drop off all the same.

An unmissable experience. The best option to know the falls and all its surroundings. The very safe flight. I would definitely do it again

It was amazing and even though it cost 400 RS for 15 minutes it worth every penny. Seeing the waterfalls from above is just breathtaking.

Excellent tour, so we’ll organised from beginning to end. Lucha was an excellent guide, I would highly recommend this tour.
