What people are saying about Puerto Iguazu

Brilliant day from start to finish. The tour company and guide made the trip stress free by taking care of tickets and planning the day. We were slightly apprehensive about the boat experience as it was slightly on the cold side and many had told us we would get very wet. But what an amazing sight and experience it was! Definitely the highlight of the day and getting wet wasn't an issue either as we had a chance to change into dry clothes straight after.

The boat ride was the absolute highlight. Our guides were friendly and informative. Transportation to/from our accommodations was included and convenient. The hiking/walking trails themselves could have been self-guided, and without a tour group we probably could have had more time to explore some additional trails. Overall though — amazing experience, I’d highly recommend.

A must for anyone who is not afraid of water. The national park cannot be done in one day, but the tour shows the most important things. I'll go back the next day on my own.

Sandra was phenomenal! We can’t imagine doing the Iguazú falls without her ! We miss her already! Thank you Sandra !!! We will be back and ask for her !

Fantastic adventure! Not sure the safety is all that good, but the drivers are good and I never felt at risk
