This is worth doing purely for the boat ride into the falls which is great fun. You will get very wet and have a memory that you will always remember. The rest of the “safari” could do with some improvement. On our tour, we kept...More

We took the ride part way and hiked part way. I don't recommend the hiking part for anyone that doesn't want to walk up and down on rocks, steps, pathways. Our guide spoke English, and was nice, but we ended up with people that didn't...More

The Iguazu Falls are amazing!! The Macuco Safari was a blast! Word of caution...bring a change of clothes, and leave your shoes right at the departure deck....you will be soaked, but it was a blast! Would do it again in a flash!

Hello Sir, how are you? Thank you for your comments Have a good day

The whole experience takes around 2 hours. A jeep ride through the forest. An optional wet or dry ride. Be prepared to get very wet. I don't want to spoil the surprise so take a plastic poncho. The ride takes about 25 minutes. Great fun

Email them. We got Senior prices at the football stadium (showed passports) and at the fort in Rio were told the discount was for nationals only.
