I originally booked a trip with the Iguassu Life Tours to the Brazilian side of the falls. Our guide, Nilsa, arrived promptly on the morning of our trip and spoke very good English. After learning that our group was English and had not been to Foz before, Nilsa took the time to point out many places withing the town, such as good restaurants, the bus station and a local supermarket where we might find anything we needed. This was extremely helpful as no one in our group spoke much Portuguese! Once we arrived at the falls, she advised us who to buy the best value rain jackets from and showed us where to buy the tickets. She then dropped us at the start of the trail and pointed out which direction to go in. Nilsa then offered to take us to the Argentinian side the next day for the same price as it would be on the bus. Unfortunately the weather was terrible so she rearranged her personal plans to take us the day after when the weather was looking up before dropping us at the airport. I cannot put into words how kind this was as we would not have had anywhere near as good a time in the storm the day before. To go into the Argentinian park you need to pay in paso's. Nilsa exchanged these beforehand and gave us a $1000 each so that we could buy anything we liked in the park before paying her at the end.
I cannot thanks Nilsa enough for her help, we would have been quite lost without her!
