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.

Brazil Side:

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.

Parque Nacional do Iguacu
The Brazilian Falls will be visited with its traditional gateway of 1,200 meters long where you can get a spectacular panoramic view of the 275 waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls, of which the Brazilian side are four: Floriano, Deodoro, Benjamin Constant and Salto Union or Devil's Throat. After the tour, you have access to the panoramic lift that will reach the bus that will take you back to the gateway

Stop At:  
Iguazu Falls
Argentina Side: (visit 2 of the 3 circuits) From Puerto Iguazú, you’ll travel first to Iguazú National Park in Argentina to explore the Lower Circuit, Upper Circuit and Devil's Throat. The Lower Circuit is composed of a trail approximately 0.8 miles (1.3 km) long that allows you to get close to some of the smaller waterfalls on the Argentinian side. Walk along the trail, which is equipped with both restrooms and snack bars, and get close to the Carlos Bozzetti Waterfall, where you can take some great photos. The Upper Circuit, which is wheelchair accessible, allows you to see the top of the majestic falls on the Argentina side and enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the area. The view stretches from the Argentinian falls to San Martin Island and parts of the Brazilian falls. Devil's Throat is the largest waterfall in the region and where the largest amount of water pours through Iguassu Falls. At an impressive altitude of 350 feet (107 meters), Devil's Throat is a must-see Iguassu Falls feature. Thanks to the newly built catwalk, you can get pretty close to this site! Brazil Side: Then, leave Argentina and cross the border into Iguaçu National Park on the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. You'll get another close-up view of Devil´s Throat, which is best seen from the Brazilian side. 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 area is famous for its rainbow, and more great photo opportunities abound! For a close-up of the falls, walk through the park’s subtropical forest to the base of Salto Floriano. Then take the elevator to the top of the falls, or walk out over the falls at Salto Union.

Good & Bad ...

We booked this trip 3 days before and as advertised expected an English speaking Guide so you'd think ... this was NOT the case really. The tour was split in to two parts the morning in Argentina and the afternoon on the Brazilian side. Whilst we were on the Argentinian side the Guide only spoke to us when we were told where to go and meet. There was NO explanation of The Falls or anything about it in English!!! As for our trip over the border in the afternoon ... the Guide spoke to us a little more but didn't tell us when buying the Park Entry tickets that we did not need transport tickets so we WASTED $20 when she could of told us, very frustrating indeed!!!!! All in all it was an average trip, the crowds were CRAZY and make sure you TAKE INSECT REPELLENT!!!! The Tour itself only cost $35 each so i guess you get what you pay for.

ONE DAY TOUR FOR BOTH SIDES - IGUAZU FALLS

This is ideal for one day for both Argentina and Brazil side. The only problem is there so much to do and need at least 2 days to explore especially the boat ride and hiking.

Unimaginable Beauty!

This was the cherry on top of the cake on our Chile-Argentina trip!! What a wonderful tour, though it was a very long day as we did both sides in one day, we highly recommend it. Our guides, Carlos in the Argentinian side, and another Carlos, in the Brazilian side, were wonderful and so professional! If you are planning on taking this tour be prepared for very long walks and extremely hot temperatures, but it's worth every step of the way. The beauty of the Iguazu Falls cannot be captured in pictures, you have to live the experience!!!

Amazing Spectacle
g0lflady
, Nov 2019
Seeing the falls from Argentina and then Brazil is the perfect way to get the total experience. Our guide in Argentina was Carlos who was very good at explaining everything to us. Our guide in Brazil was Jose Luis and again he was excellent. His English was perfect; found out he studied in US at a very well know university. We were unable to get good info from the company via email and telephone while in Argentina prior to our trip. Did get pick up info the day before and our hotel verified for us. Both sides of the National Park entrance fees can be purchased with a credit card (AmEx, Visa, Master Card) or in the local currency. Prices are reasonable for entrance and even for something to eat or drink at the small stores.

Really good tour if you have limited time.
Carmino5
, Aug 2019
We found this tour really good as 2 separate days on each side of the falls would have been too much. Doing both was really good as we had limited time but we felt like we had long enough on either side to satisfy us. After reading some negative reviews before hand I was a little worried but the whole trip went quite smoothly and any questions we had were answered by the guides. Hotel pick up was reconfirmed by phone call to our hotel the night before which was reassuring. Pick up was on time time and we went to the Argentinian side 1st. The tour was mixed nationalities and we were the only English speaking people on the tour. The guide explained everything really well and from the start told us where we had to be and what time to meet for the Brazilian tour in the afternoon incase we got separated for any reason. The Brazilian guide was at the meeting point on time and took us across the boarder and helped us with the immigration paper work. He guided us around the Brazilian side of the falls and had a lot of information about the place. On return he guided back through immigration and to our hotel. This is a great tour if your want to see both sides and have limited time. You get up close to the falls on the Argentinian side but get amazing views of everything from the Brazilian side, two unique experiences.

Awesome views of the falls from both the Argentinian & Brazilian sides - very different views and perspectives. Easy to see in one day but if you want to do boat under the falls etc take 2 days

Missed our tour to the Brazilian side
andrewyY639HB
, Dec 2018
We were the only two of our group that booked to see both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides of Iguassu Falls. Therefore, our tour guide didn't bring us to meet up with the other tour guide for the Brazilian side after we finished seeing the Argentinian side. He gave us verbal instructions to meet up with the other tour guide in the main entrance. He told us to take the train ourselves in the national park. However, no workers in the train station speak English and could help us. When I asked which train can take us to the central station, the worker just showed me the way and it happened to be a train to the wrong direction. By the time we realized we were on the wrong train, we were late in meeting with the other tour guide in the main entrance. This resulted that we missed our tour to the Brazilian side. This should be a FIVE stars tour but I can only give it a THREE because I felt the tour guide should have brought us to meet up with the other tour guide since there was hardly any workers who can speak English and help us.

If you just want to see both sides without the additional experienced added -- this is very good -- if you have more time available--better to do this trip over 2 days

Great organisation, poor information for Argentina
juliemariemckenna
, Jun 2018
This tour is perfect if you only have a day to see as much of the falls as possible. The Argentinian guides directed well but understood little English so there wasn't any information given other then things we read while we were there. The Brazilian guide was amazing giving lots of extra info in Spanish and English equally, she was really good and made the cost of the tour worthwhile
