Returns to original departure point
Iguassu Falls was created as the result of a volcanic eruption that left a large crack in the earth. Taller than Niagara Falls (and twice as wide), Iguassu consists of 275 cascading falls spread out over nearly 2 miles (3.2 km) in a horseshoe shape. During the rainy season, between November and March, the rate of water that flows over the falls can reach more than 450,000 cubic feet (12,750 cubic m) per second. In short, it’s a phenomenal natural wonder that you’ll want to see from as many angles as possible.
Leaving Puerto Iguazú behind, you'll cross the border into Brazil and visit Devil´s Throat, the largest waterfall in the region and one best seen from the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. Here, you'll watch as 14 falls drop 350 feet (107 meters) with such force that a 100-foot (30-meter) tall cloud of mist stays permanently suspended overhead. This area famous is famous for its rainbow, and great photo opportunities abound!
For a close-up of the falls, walk through the subtropical forest of Iguacu National Park to the base of Salto Floriano. Then take the elevator to the top of the falls, or walk out over the falls at Salto Union.

Pick up was on time. I had to email them (Grey Line) many times to confirm they would pick me up at my hotel since it wasn't on their list. I was the only non-native Spanish speaker so the guide spoke in Spanish the entire time, which was fine, since I am fluent. She was very knowledgeable and gave good information as we crossed the border and arrived at the Brazilian side of the falls. After that, we were dropped off and left on our own, told to return to the bus in 2 hours or so. That was fine, since the falls are best explored on your own. Basically you are paying for a bus to pick you up in Puerto Iguazu, Argentina, and take you to the Brazilian side. If you don't want to try and figure out how to do it on your own (which you can), it's worth spending the extra $.
To truly experience these falls you need to see both sides. Brazil is looking at it while Argentina is being in it. The tour itself, like the other side, was heavy on Spanish
Great opportunity to see the spectacular Brazilian side of the falls - be prepared to get wet! Make sure you get the real local operator's name from Viator. We were given Gray Line Tours which doesn't operate in Iguassu but uses a local operator. The front desk staff at our hotel helped us figure out who would be picking us up and at what time. Viator/TripAdvisor should know better!
WE did this with Gray Line AR. Pick up hotel was on time. Meriam, our tour guide did a good job in facilitating the legalities with the Argentinian border. We signed up for the English tour, but Spanish-speaking tourists made up the bulk of tourists in our bus. So Meriam had to speak in Spanish at length, and in English relatively shorter. On our way home, Meriam led us to a Cuenca Office, trying to get a driver to drop us off to our hotel. As we were sitting in the reception area, we were hoping that Meriam would tell us about the driver. We were surprised to see her leaving the area without saying a word or anything. That was odd, if not, rude!
Another amazing day at the Iguazu Waterfalls but a different perspective from the previous day to complete the picture for us. We had the same guide as the previous day Miguel. He expertly guided us through the immigration procedures at both the Argentinian and Brazilian borders on the way there and back. He had excellent English and was able to share his years of experience and expertise about the park and the area. Because they had arranged a Brazilian Bus for us we were able to stay on our tour bus for the day rather than transfer to the Park Bus. It was less strenuous activity than the Argentinian Park but the views were just as awesome and completely different. So pleased we chose to do both sides of the Falls. Thank you Miguel for 2 fabulous days. Very enjoyable.
Our guide, Manuel, was fantastic. Lots of information, guided us on the paths of the falls and had a great smile and personality. If you are on the Argentina side of the falls this trip makes your life so much easier. The guide takes care of the papoerwork for the crossing, you never leave the comfortable bus. Also tour busses get preference at the borders. There was a long line in both directions for cars.
Everything was very well planned, the friendly guide helped us with our next plane back to Buenos Aires.
The tour is worth it and you don't have to think about time, luggage or passport, all is done for you. The views are amazing! I recommend as well doing the Argentinian side the day before.
Tour was good and got to see what it said. Lunch was also good. I was the only English speaker on the tour but I was used to that by this stage of my trip!
This half day tour from the Brazilian side is very worth it ! As you will see the iguazu falls from another panoramic angle. And one is able to capture everything from the Brazilian side from this half day tour.
The experience was amazing. Our tour guide was helpful and spoke good English. The only down side was waiting in the intense heat and time wasted for well over an hour for a couple that did not meet back at the required.
The Brazilian side is definitely worth it. However the trip no English lasts much longer than the 4 hour estimation. It was more like 8! Also we were forced to stop for the people doing the helicopter tour and a wildlife park. We stopped 4 buffet lunch (180 pesos per person not including drinks.
Pickup at hotel was on time and guides were very nice and helpful during all the trip, specially getting through customs and the visit to the Brazilian side was fantastic.
I think this is a very good value for money. The timing is perfect as well- you won't need more than three hours to see the all angles through the designated platforms...and that is walking leisurely whilst trying to spot some wild life...I was lucky to see a couple of capuchin monkeys, a reptile that looks like iguana and various multi-coloured butterflies.
Advise though, bring a raincoat and something to cover your phone...on Devil's throat platform, it's more than a mist- it's more like a proper rain and you'll get drenched! it was fun but not if it will break your electronics.
Overall, I highly recommend this trip...
This tour was amazing!! The entrance to the park is NOT included (which was about $25 USD pp). The company picked us up from our hotel (Sheraton Iguazu Fals, Argentina) and took us to the National Park in Brazil. Then the guide gave us time to explore the falls from the Brazilian side. Tip - Don't forget your Passport!
What a great trip. Our guide Miguel was very helpful with excellent handle on the English language.
One point you may wish to consider is that the email Viator send out the day before is very confusing. It staes a pick up window for the tour which we adhered to but missed the bus! I rang the tour provider and they were excellent. They sent a separate bus and got us up to the tour and we completed it and it was great as I said. Our guide did point out that the time window put out by Viator was not "gospel". I would like to suggest that Viator direct the people on the tour to definitely ring the tour provider to confirm times. I have had several tours with Viator and this is the first time that something like this has happened but it was very disconcerting. Once again, great trip. Hope this helps. Regards, William
