Argentina Side: (Visit 2 out of 3 Circuits)
You'll be picked up at your hotel in Puerto Iguazú in a comfortable vehicle and travel directly to Iguazú National Park. Opt to explore Devil's Throat, the Lower Circuit or the Upper Circuit.
The largest amount of water from the Iguazú River cascades over Devil's Throat at a rate of 3,434,000 million gallons (1.5 million liters) per second. View this breathtaking display of nature's power is visible from a catwalk built near the top of the 350-foot (107-meter) waterfall.
A 0.8-mile (1.3-km) trail comprises the Lower Circuit, a loop that takes visitors up close to some of the smaller waterfalls in the park. Restrooms and places to stop for snacks are available on this trail, which boasts wonderful views of Bossetti falls that make for great photographs.
Access the very top of the falls via the Upper Circuit. Take this trail, which is also wheelchair accessible, to enjoy panoramic views of San Martin Island and some parts of the Brazilian side of the falls.
After seeing all the sights on the Argentinian side of the falls, cross the border into Brazil and its Iguaçu National Park. This side undeniably has the best views of the mighty Devil's Throat, where you'll see over a dozen waterfalls drop 350 feet (107 meters). The famous permanent rainbow is projected upon the enormous mist cloud produced by the force of so much water falling onto the rocks below.
Opt to walk through the tropical forest to the bottom of Salto Floriano, take the elevator to view the falls from the top, or trek out to see the Salto Union falls.
I actually ended up splitting my trip into two days so I could do the boat ride under the falls. It's a must do trip. Argentina has lots of walk ways but Brazil has the most amazing views. Mother Nature at her very best.
I was picked up promptly from my hostel and looked after very well all day, both days. English speaking guide as well.
If you only have one day to see Iguassu Falls, then this is the tour to do. The Falls are absolutely stunning, and on the Argentinian side you can get very close which is amazing, whereas the Brazilian side gives you a great overview. You do have to spend a fairly long time at the border which I'm sure is unavoidable but the wait is worth it. All in all an unforgettable day out, and well organised.
Excellent tour! No way i could have seen both sides in one day by myself. If you only have one day, and want to see both sides of the falls, this one is highly recommended.
Everything ran smoothly though I feel the guides should have strongly recommended buying a protective rain coat - we got drenched twice but that did not deter from the spectacle. Both guides spoke excellent English and were very helpful. Definitely recommend this tour.
Great trip, the tour guides were amazing, very professional, very knowledgable and very helpful. The tour was great too
Very good tour, I really recommend it. First, we went to the Argentinian side and then to Brazil side. Only if you want to do the Boat Adventures I recommend you to do only the Argentinian side one day and the Brazilian side the other day.
It was fantastic. I enjoyed very much. It is a wonderful things to see.
Tour to Argentina side is very well organized and the Guide is very good. He is knowledgeable and speak good English. Highly recommended
But Brazilian side the guide is not well plan the trip. Very poor English. But what I have seen is memorable for life time.
Excellent tour, recommanded
This is amazing. People ask as i did before my trip, WHICH IS THE BEST SIDE TO SEE? If you only have one day this tour is perfect you get enough time all around the waterfalls there are so many. This tour takes you to both sides with ease. Highly recommended.
For anyone trying to decide how to tour the falls I highly recommend the one day tour including both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides.
They are very different but highly complimentary towards seeing the full spec table of the falls.
