What people are saying about Puerto Iguazu

The experience was unforgettable. We start the top quality tour, we visit the falls, the devil's throat and then we return to a meeting point. Our guide always well predisposed, collaborative, good host and above all, humble. He gave us correct information and always accompanied us. Information and communication always in Portuguese, Spanish and English (there was a German tourist among us). The tour was impeccable because the group was also seven people, which was much more pleasant and profitable. Unfortunately, due to a medical situation, I was unable to continue with the tour (attention to those with joint problems in the lower limbs or spine, because access to the boats is by land and it is not feasible to do so in the presence of pain or limited mobility). They gave me different alternatives, including the return of the value. I was refunded the value of the tour without problems.

Good communication prior to the trip, and quick responses especially via email. The WhatsApp communication was a bit confusing and patchy, would recommend getting in touch with the company via email. Our guide Douglas was excellent, very nice and accommodating as well as caring. The pick up was at the said time and Douglas helped us with all documents needed for the Argentinian and Brazilian border controls and explained the entire tour in detail. The views were incredible and the boat trip was highly enjoyable - definitely make sure to take an extra set of clothing because you will be drowned in water after the boat ride. We were able to skip the queue going back into Brazil due to the guide having a tourism marked car, so we got in and out of Brazil without any waiting time, making the trip highly efficient. Would highly recommend Douglas & the trip.

Great experience! Tour guide was brilliant! Would definitely recommend! Just be aware that on way back out of the falls you have to pay 150 Argentine pesos per person in cash so make sure you have it.

The activity was well planned and our guide Voldomiro was grewt!

A great experience with friendly and helpful guides!
