Unlike other tour companies that group multiple languages together, each language gets their own tour. As I was the only English speaker to sign up, I got a private tour guide and driver for the day! IT was fantastic! My guide was patient and flexible, and the day turned out better than hoped for. TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!

If you are visiting the Iguazu Falls on the Brazilian side, you must take a boat trip and pass under the falls. Attention it wets a lot not to say it soaks. Protect your devices well and bring some spare clothes or buy a raincoat on site. The falls are magnificent. My guide Milène was perfect throughout my stay.

This was the perfect tour. My tour guide knew everything and was extremely helpful. The falls were extremely busy, but the guide knew the best places for photos. He even used his phone to take some pictures and sent them to me.

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
