We were picked at our hotel at 8 am . Thanks to our tour guide Daniel Antonio for suggesting the Boat trip, otherwise we would have missed a must enjoy attraction at the Brazilian side of the Falls.
The boat trip consisted of 3 parts , first a short ride on the tram to avoid pollution to the forest it is powered by solar electricity during which time the guide explained the highlights of the National park, then a walk on the trail you can skip this and directly join at the boat station leading to the boat station for about 15 minutes and finally the terrific ride in the speed boats for about 30 minutes in Iguazu river towards the Brazilian side of the falls. There were lockers and change rooms just before the ride. Be prepared to get drenched as the boat goes right the the falls. It was an exciting at the same time a safe ride. The crew took videos and photos during the ride and you can buy it. Overall the boat trip takes about 2 hours and is a not to be missed attractions at Iguazu. We were back near the Visitors center by 12.30 pm.
In the afternoon we proceeded with our walking tour of the Brazilian side of the Falls. It was a self guided tour going to different view points to look at the Falls . One can see the Brazilian side closely and even Argentinian side at a distance. While the Argentinian walking tour provided views from the top of the falls, the Brazilian tour is enjoying the view from the bottom in most points though at a couple of observation decks you get the top view as well. The tour ended by 3.30 pm and we were in our hotel by 4.30 pm.
Between the two sides of the Falls Argentinian side is no doubt a longer one with closer view from the top but I am not sure if it is worth spending reciprocity fee of USD 160 just for one visit as the views from Brazil side are equally stunning though a bit shorter and mostly from bottom of the Falls.

This was one of the most outstanding trips of my entire life. Iguana is astonishing to the point of words not being able to do it justice....!!!!

Great tour, gives one a lot of time these briliant falls amazing
This is one of the most amazing places on the planet. Each viewing platform provides picture postcard experiences and leaves you wondering how it can get better ……. but it does!!!
Enjoyed very much. Fun Guide Marco. Still trying to process all that I saw! Beautiful
This was a great tour. The tour guide did everything she could to make a trip a sucess.
We had a very rainy day at the falls but our tour guide helped us in everyway.
Thanks for a great trip.

Words can Not describe what an Amazing tour this was. Had it been the only thing I did when I went to Brazil it was well worth it. Anyone going to Rio or just any where in Brazil...this is a Must!!! We also did the tour into Argentina. You don't need a Visa if you are doing the tour. You will Not be disappointed.
Breathtaking. Definitely a must-see. (Just an advice, bring extra clothes and be prepared to get wet!)
Great way to see the Brazilian side of the waterfalls. You'll walk around for 2 1/2 hours on your own.
The tour was very good! We had a small group (6 people), very international, the weather was very good that day, and we had a very good guide, she is very kind and helpful. I'm very satisfied with everything. Thanks!
Entrance to the park is not included. What you pay for only includes the transportation from and back to your hotel. It was breathtaking to see the Iguazu Falls.
The tour package included merely just transport, and a locally guide to walk with you, but not very informative.
The local tour operator didn't pick us up at the hotel until almost 2 hours later.
We had to wait almost 2 hours to be picked up at the hotel in the morning.

Would have been just as good to have done this tour myself. The guide was really unnecessary, didn't speak a lot of English, and for less than half the price I could have just caught a bus to and from the Falls (which was only about 5-10 mins away) and then kept my own pace. But at least i got picked up for the tour, unlike my 'tour' to the Argentinian side of the falls.
