Half-day guided sightseeing tour of Iguassu Falls from Foz do Iguaçu
See the Brazilian side of the falls in Iguaçu National Park
Get up-close views of Devil's Throat, the largest waterfall in the region
After pickup from your Foz do Iguaçu hotel, head into Iguaçu National Park with your local guide for this half-day sightseeing trip.
Enter Iguaçu National Park to see what are arguably the best views of the tremendous Devil's Throat waterfall. Watch as 14 falls drop 350 feet (107 meters) over a precipice with impressive, thunderous force. Be sure to bring your foul weather gear to protect you from the 100-foot (30-meter) cloud of mist that is suspended permanently overhead. This cloud is host to a steady rainbow, so get ready to snap lots of photos.
Prepare to be impressed by these falls, which are taller than Niagara and twice as wide. During the rainy season from November to March, water can flow over these falls at 450,000 cubic feet (12,750 cubic meters) per second. Trek through the forest to the bottom of Salto Floriano For an up-close view of the falls. After admiring that view, ride the park's elevator to the top of the falls, or meander out over the falls at Salto Union.
End your day's adventure with drop-off back at your hotel in Foz do Iguaçu.
Leave Foz do Iguaçu behind and head into Iguacu National Park. One of the most incredible natural wonders on the planet, Iguassu is taller than Niagara Falls – and twice as wide – and consists of 275 cascading falls spread out over nearly 2 miles (3.2 km) in a horseshoe shape. The average flow of the waterfalls amounts to approximately 2.6 million gallons (10 million liters) per second.
One of Iguassu’s most famous features, Devil´s Throat is the largest waterfall in the region and is best seen from the Brazilian side. 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 is the area famous for rainbows, and great photo opportunities abound!
For a close-up view of the falls, you can walk through the subtropical forest of Iguacu National Park to the base of Salto Floriano. Here, you can take the elevator to the top of the falls, or walk out over the falls at Salto Union.
But if the brazilian side is not enough for you and you are interested in a different perspective of the Iguassu Falls, try the option with the argentine side included!
If you want to add the argentine side, then this is also an itinerary:
Get inside the National Park and see the amazing waterfalls.
There's not much in the world that compares to the 275 waterfalls that make up stunning Iguassu Falls, which straddles the border of Brazil and Argentina and sits not far from Paraguay. On this tour, you'll travel from Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, to Iguazú National Park in Argentina to explore the Upper Circuit, Lower Circuit and Devil's Throat.
A great tour to see Iguazu Falls.
The tour guide Ms.Silvana was great and informative. She was always there to assist us in everything we needed.
And when you finally get to see the falls I recommend to do the WET boat tour in order to really enjoy the experience of the falls. Adrenaline rush! A must do!
I recommend to choose another tour agency , this one is very unprofessional . They didn't pick me from location and after my call they came took me to the bus station and I had to proceed with the tour alone , also because they ignored my calls and whats app msgs I had to take a taxi back to hotel.
Iguassu falls are more beautiful than Niagara falls in my opinion. For me the most beautiful of all the waterfalls I have seen. Very green and lush and the panoramic view is absolutely outstanding. You really have to look at the falls from both Argentina side and Brazil side to understand the magnitude of it.
Bird Park could be added, but all of the passengers on the bus including me already had visited so we all went back to hotel and took it as true half day tour.
I was the only English speaking tourist there and all were Brazilian, but the guide could speak good English. Luckily there was one young man, Ivan, who could speak English very well and wanted to practice with me, so we were buddy for the trip.
Warning to English speaking folks: it is not easy to find someone who speaks English in Brazil...be ready to use body language.
On the side of Viator's performance, you guys mixed up my hotel pick up spot for another tour The Argentina side. For this trip I called ahead so I was able to rearrange the pick up spot.
This was probably the most disappointing of all our South American tours. Our guide spoke extensively in Spanish and then at the end, would offer a single sentence in English. We felt we were missing a lot. At the Falls walkway, were were basically dropped off, but were clearly told where to meet and when at least. There was no commentary along the 1hr. plus walk.
Once we left, he offered us the chance to stop at the Bird Aviary on the way back to the hotel promising us to get back by 2:30.
The Bird Sanctuary was worth the added expense, but when it was time to leave, he kept delaying as he wanted the others to get pictures taken, etc...Kickback?? We finally insisted on leaving and he begrudgingly made a separate trip to get us back to our nearby hotel. We arrived 30 minutes later than he'd promised, and we were concerned as we had transportation coming for our flight that evening to Rio de Janiero. It all worked out, but it was not what we'd expected from the tour.
Tour guide was too rush and she's seems disinterested in explaining the tour and only interested in getting people on the tour boat and some others places like bird park after the tour itinerary ends. Not sure if she wants to make extra money or what!!! Could be better off arranging own transport
Dont go to Brazilian side and if you dont take the boat you have to wait 2 hours. Guide was not good, let us alone in the tour, did not explain anything, and forced me to take the boat tour or bird park tour.
Great tour, tour guide was basically hands off and let us do our own thing, it ended up being mostly transport translation. I actually prefer that to an overbearing guide...
Great falls experience. If you have the time, do the closeup boat tour of the falls too! Just bring a change of clothes...
