It is an awesome way to see the Iguassu falls. All the employees are very kind. The boat doesn´t go at the Garganta do Diabo, but it goes down of some smaller falls that is very nice the same way. Bring a set of clothes...More

Great history about the local fauna and flora but the highlight is riding a boat up to the falls. You can choose wet or dry ride. Pic the wet one!

Definitely fun! I decided to go because it cost about the same as walking the trails (so ridiculous) and it seemed better to spend the money on the boat trip. The drive through the woods was mediocre, the guide stopped 2 or 3 times to...More

We booked the tour through the Belmond Hotel, where service and personnel are excellent; the more we were disappointed by the quite senseless tour - I agree with the critics asking "why" - the boat ride itself is great fun, but the rest is dull...More

Well worth the effort getting there, eco-friendly as much as possible, but the boat ride "INTO" the bottom of the falls was worth it...completely different image of the falls from down there!

The best bit about this tour is the boat ride up to the falls. Whilst our boat chose to be completely immersed under the falls there is a choice to not get wet. It was a great way to see the Iguaçu Falls up close...More

We wanted to do a boat trip and approach the iguazu falls from the downside. Actually, a friend of mine recommended to do absolutely a boat trip to the Iguazu falls, even if its expensive. So,my expectations were very high. Unfortunately they were not satisfied....More

Did the speedboat tour. The 20 minutes on the speedboat is great, and lot's of fun. Do the wet tour! Bring a GoPro if you have one. The drawback is the fact that the tour takes >2hours, and you spend a lot of time waiting....More

First of all, it's not really a trip. It's a boat ride along a short stretch of the river and then in and out under a couple of waterfalls. It's great fun, and getting soaking wet in the frigid water felt fabulous after a... More

Aside from the fact that you need a visa to see the Brazilian side, all attractions can be purchased locally. Being from Canada I needed a visa for Argentina $97 US. Too much to spend for a half day!
