The Best Affordable Tours of Iguazu Falls
Get your cameras ready because a memorable experience awaits you as you explore this natural wonder of the world. The 200,000 year old falls span across the border of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, and are known to pour over 400,000 gallons of water a second onto the rocks below! Enjoy a series of walkways and footbridges strategically designed for amazing views and close contact with the incredible Iguassu Falls where the Iguassu and Parana rivers meet on the Argentinian side or cross the border from Argentina into Brazil and pair a tour of Brazil's Iguacu National Park, which has the best views of the Devil's Throat with a visit to Itaipu Dam.
After pick up from your hotel in the morning, we will travel outside the Puerto Iguazu to the national park where we will spend the day exploring the falls and learning about their history. The tour is organised in a way that enables you to see the falls from different angles. The lower path leads to the base of the falls where the intensity of the falls releases a thick mist into the air. The upper path leads to incredible panoramic views of the falls from an extensive footbridge. You will be guided throughout this unforgettable experience by a bilingual guide who will provide you with information about this historic site but you will also have lots of free time to take pictures, enjoy the nature and see the falls at your own pace. At the end of the tour we will all meet again for transportation back to your hotel in Puerto Iguazu. Lunch is only included if that option is chosen. Do not forget that you will still need to pay the National Park Fee - USD$22 on arrival at the park. Children under the age of 5 are welcomed on this tour for free but will have to pay the National Park entry fee.

After pickup from your Puerto Iguazu hotel, we will cross the border to Iguassu Falls on the Brazilian side with your expert guide for this full-day sightseeing trip. In the morning, we will enter Iguacu 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, we will walk through the forest to the bottom of Salto Floriano. After admiring that view, we will ride the park's elevator to the top of the falls, or meander out over the falls at Salto Union. We will then continue to our next stop at Itaipu Dam, the world's largest hydroelectric power plant. Built on the Parana River, the plant provides part of Brazil's and almost all of Paraguay's electricity. After having seen the dam up close and learned about the history and logistics of its operation from your knowledgeable guide, we will end our day's adventure in Brazil with drop-off back at your hotel in Puerto Iguazu. A current valid passport is required on the day of travel and you must confirm and obtain any visa requirements prior to border crossing. You will need to pay the National park entrance fee (approximately USD 32) as well as the Itaipu Dam admission fee when arriving on each sites.
