What people are saying about Puerto Iguazu

The tour on the first day, waterfalls on the Argentine side, was long and complete, of full satisfaction, the tour on the second day, on the Brazilian side, was in my opinion a little rushed, even if complete, however the path is shorter and we have to consider the times for the border crossing with Brazil, as on both days we leave from Puerto Iguacu, Argentina. A very welcome, free and unexpected offer was the pick-up and drop-off at your hotel in Puerto Iguacu.

The trip to visit the falls on the Argentinian side was fabulous, our guide was excellent & very knowledgeable. It is a full day tour with lovely walks thru the bush & along the top of the falls. The 2nd day to the Brazilian side was average. You get great views of the falls from the Brazilian side, but there is a lot of queueing and waiting around. The trip was a little shorter but effectively we only spent about 45 minutes out of the day trip sightseeing.

The ride was excellent and the guys, both the tuki driver and the nancy guide, were super friendly, I recommend them both !!!

This is a very nice bird park. I would recommend it to all. If you get there when it opens at 8:30, it should not be crowded

A great experience with friendly and helpful guides!
