We were picked up and dropped off at the stables and left there without warning nobody speaking English. It was my first time on a horse too. We were given a horse but poor thing looked tired and restless. We trotted on for 20 mins along dusty roads with motorcycle and dogs yapping horse was spooked and whinnied and almost chucked me off, we had no helmets either. we arrived at a Guarani village again no English so I used Google translate to communicate. V interesting chat and stroll around village. Then another 20 min horse trek back to stables.....

Well organized and managed to do it all but remember you have to cross the border and it takes time so that with hotel pick up from 10 different hotels also adds up. The falls are spectacular! Bird park also very good but you only get 90 mins max to see as much as possible. So if staying on Brazilian side it may favour you more for this.

Was blown away by iguazu much better than I expected and defo worth paying the extra to do the speed boat

Arrived on time, very smooth over the boarder and everything arranged for us!

Awesome! And the boat experience is unique! I recommend it 100%!!
