Departure Time

8:00 AM
After pickup from your Puerto Iguazú hotel, cross the border to Iguassu Falls on the Brazilian side with your expert guide for this full-day sightseeing trip.

Enter Iguaçu National Park and view 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, because the water plummets with such magnitude that it creates a 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.

During the rainy season from November to March, water can flow over Iguassu Falls at 450,000 cubic feet (12,750 cubic meters) per second. For an up-close view of the falls, trek through the forest to the bottom of Salto Floriano. After admiring that view, ride the park's elevator to the top of the falls, or meander out over the falls at Salto Union.

Continue to your next stop at Itaipu Dam, the world's largest hydroelectric power plant. Built on the Paraná River, the plant provides part of Brazil's and almost all of Paraguay's electricity. View the dam itself up close and learn about the history and logistics of its operation from your knowledgable guide. End your day's adventure in Brazil with drop-off back at your hotel in Puerto Iguazú.

Everything went well until after lunch when we were first asked to shift to another guide with a smaller van, but then just after about 15 minutes we were transferred like goods to a third guide with a even smaller van WITHOUT air-con and the driver who also served as a guide but DID NOT SPEAK a single English word! This was totally a nightmare!

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Thank you very much for your comments! The reason you had to change the vehicles, is due to this tour consist of 3 different activities. - Brazilian Side of Falls - Itapu Dam - internal excursion at Itapu Dam We have heard your suggestions and at this moment have solved issues with air conditioners within our vehicles. Best regards, Gray Line Team

Despite no correspondence prior to pick up time in morning had to callViator and emergency no, night before plus a 20 minute late pickup in morning, the trip to the Brazil side of the Falls was worth every . The Dam add on too as we were only ones on that excursion with the group and they gave us our own Taxi driver to take care of us for this part. We didnt get back to accommodation until 6.30 pm but driver handled everything. Great value for money.

This tour wasn't really a tour as such and I'm sure you could spend your money better on a driver or a local bus to take you to the falls. We were the only English speaking tourists and felt as though we missed out on facts and things you would expect in a tour. Don't bother with the dam either.

The falls from this side are exciting. Remember to dress well because you will get wet. The Itaipu dam is very interesting and inpressive mainly for technical people. Other people will find it a bit boring.

Best tour we did whilst in South America. So different from the Argentinian side. Trip to the power station was just mind boggling, so big, just opened your eyes to what man is capable of. Guides helpful and friendly plus good English.

After seeing the Iguassu Falls from the Argentinian side the day before it was still worth to also visit the Brazilian side. We found that the overall views were actually better from the Brazilian side compared to the Argentinian side. This is due to the fact that on the Argentinian side you are basically "in" or "on top" of the falls and from the Brazilian side you can take the better pictures as you are slightly further away. We would not have wanted to miss on or the other side and strongly recommend to visit both sides. As for the trip to the Argentinian side that we had booked through "viator" as well we did not know in advance that the entrance fee to the falls is not included in the tour price which was somewhat disappointing. But in comparison to the Argentinian side we could pay with a foreign credit card. Also the visit to the dam was really interesting and impressing. Between the two parts of the trip we stopped for lunch which was included in the tour price (except for drinks). Although it was a lunch place where only tourist groups are brought to we were surpised how good the food was and how much variety was offered.

This was the worst so-called tour that I have taken. The coach which arrived half and hour late spent another half hour picking up other clients. It was actually a feeder coach connecting 4 different tours and an airport dropoff. There was no guided tour merely a dropoff at the falls.
