Amazing tour 8/21/14. Our tour guide marcos was awesome! he was patient and well informed. Let us take our time and take pictures at our pace. He was the best. I would go again in a second. Also was a small group only 7 of us. Fantastic
We went in late June 2014. The falls were at full power, which meant that some of the catwalks were closed or had been washed away. None the less, the up-close experience of millions of liters of water rushing past you is unlike anything else. I personally enjoyed the falls from the Brazil side more since you get more of the horizon to horizon view of the falls, but you need to see both sides to get the comparison.
The tour was well-organized and our guide was enthusiastic, informative, and friendly. I'd recommend it.
When you experience the falls from the Argentinian side, you become part of the falls.
This was an unbelievable experience. The tour guides Marco and Pedro were very friendly and knowledgeable and made this trip very enjoyable. Highly recommended. be prepared to spend additional money in the park entrance fee and if required, Argentina entrance fee. Do some research as this Argentina fee varies from country to country. Also, this covers just the tour to the falls and does not include the boat trip which is a must do while you are there.
Great day. Punctual pick up. Informative helpful guide Pedro and driver Marco. Eased our way over the border. Flexible with group as some wanted to do the speedboat ride, which I recommend and others didn't. I would suggest that the entry fee to the park be added to the advertised cost.
An excellent small group tour,well organised. All border crossing details handled smoothly as well as obtaining Argentine pesos for the entrance fee. Both guide and driver were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The trip is a must do, wonderful.
Marcos representing VIATOR was on time to pick us up from our hotel in Foz do Iguacu and the day passed of as a wonderful,exciting tour of the Argentine side of these mighty falls.They were a spectacular sight to behold and our knowledge was greatly increased by Marcos with his patient explanations in clear English all along.
Please express our personal thanks to Marcos who was very helpful,friendly and professional for the entire time during this day long tour.

Excellent tour. Very good guide. Small group (5 people ). Thanks for a wonderful experience
The tour itself is great. However, we have trouble to get the Argentina Visa. I'm not good at computer and the agent there are not helpful at all. They took me to different places to use the computer and asked me to do myself . I tried many different way and finally I got it done . The tour left as they cannot wait for us. The good thing is they arrange a private tour for us without extra charges. The tour is great . The falls are amazing.
Excellent tour; worth going to as you get up close and personal with all the falls and the walking isn't too challenging as everything has nice even walkways with some stairs. Make sure to bring sunscreen and mosquito repellent. They took 170 Argentinian Pesos for each person, not Reals for the entrance fee. They didn't even need our Argentinian Reciprocity visas as we got through really fast. When you arrive in Brazil, customs gives you an immigration paper to fill out which you keep along the way. You need this paper when crossing over to Argentina. This paper and your passport is all you need plus the pesos.
Marcos was an excellent guide! He is funny and knowledgeable (and is an avid bird watcher!). The tour is very well-organized. Marcos managed to squeeze in the boat ride we requested, even when we are the only people in the group who wanted a boat ride.
Being highly efficient, we spent minimal time on border crossing and Marcos got us passed the crowd to be the FIRST group to enter the park. Seeing the majestic view of Iguazu minus the crowd was truly spectacular.
Hotel pick up and drop off is included. Although the drop off is supposed to be for the Brazilian side, Marcos was so nice he actually dropped us off right at our hotel on the Argentinian side without extra charge. Thanks to Marcos we had a truly wonderful visit :)
Very good tour from Brasil side to Argentina side of the falls. Totally different viewpoints and perspective. More walking and take much longer times than the Brasil side thought. Tour guide is very good n very well organized!
The tour was incredible. Marcos spoke fluent English and was terrific as was the driver Eduardo. Marcos was so knowledgable about the falls, the fauna and the wildlife, he gave us an utterly awesome day.
Great trip! Well worth it. Beautiful place to visit. A must see if your in the area. Make sure you have 70 Brazil dollars when you are picked up as the guides will stop to change it to Argentinian pesos for the tickets to get in to the park. Inside the park you can use your credit cards. Just not to pay for the tickets.
This was the first of two tours. The tour guide made sure we had all the paper work required by Argentina, and helped us get the visa's we were unaware of be for the trip as we had booked in December and the requirement was acted in January. This made the trip starte with a big PLUS. On the tour she made sure we got to see everything and made sure "us slow pokes" didn't miss out on anything. We no trouble with her English, a little broken but understandable. She made sure we understood everything which was great. This was a great tour. Sunny and hot, the tour guide made sure we where drinking enough water and cared for our wellbeing.
Thanks for a great tour
We had an excellent guide and driver. The tour exceeded my expectations.
The trip and the falls were beautiful. I can highly suggest everybody. The organisation and the tourist guide was excellent. We were offered a flat tyre after crossing the Argentinan border. The tourist office within 15 minutes sent a new bus for our group. Congratulation it was a nice organisation and solution of the problem. The weather was nice too. The only problem was that crossing the border and the immigration inspection took too long time but it is not the tourist agency's competence.
It was small tour of four people and Carlos was excellent. It is a very comprehensive tour of the Argentian side and one can add a boat trip at the same time-a must do tourof a great waterfall
Great Day and fun tour. This was the highlight of our trip to Brazil. Amazing.

Our tour turned out to be a private with just my husband and myself. The guide took excellent care of us and was very helpful. First when you cross the border from Brazil to Argentina, you need the currency of Argentina, they will not accept the Real. We were taken to an exchange center. When we crossed the border our passports were checked and registered, coming back after the tour again our passports were checked and registered.
The Argentine side is larger and a train is provided to get you to the different points of interest. It does not run real frequently, so the guide’s timing was important to keep things moving.
The actual tour was amazing and well worth the value. Things we were a bit disappointed with were the guides information. We were told the same few facts repeatedly and questions were not answered. However, the views made the day and we enjoyed seeing the falls.
