We were picked up punctually at the hotel, first a hike in the national park. Our guide Juan Carlos gave us a lot of information and was very friendly and attentive. An "electric train" drove through the jungle for the boat tour, and there was also some information here. Finally a small footpath. The boat tour was very spectacular and a lot of fun. The tour is really recommended. Thank you Juan Carlos and the driver!

An incredible experience. Everything was perfectly organized. Our tour guide Marcos Luiz was great. We were only three guests on the tour. Marcos conducted the tour in such a way that we had a maximum experience. Helicopter flight, boat trip, visit to the bird park. Everywhere we passed the crowds via a fast lane. This excursion is worth every penny.

A splendor of flora and the mighty waterfalls should not be missed. A trail that is not too strenuous, tickets recommended via the Internet. It poured with us, but that didn't detract from the enthusiasm, rain protection is offered on site.

Our guide Willian was very engaging and also spoke good English. We had two of us alone as a guide, so that he was completely geared to our needs. He also exhibited a good knowledge of the falls and botany.

Amazing day with beautiful waterfalls and then the bird park with many different types of birds.
