Buenos Aires has been chosen for 3 consecutive years (2014, 2015 and 2016) as the #1 best destination to visit in South America by millions of Trip Advisor users in their “Traveler’s Choice” contest...and rightfully so. This cosmopolitan, vibrant, and sophisticated city, commonly called the “Paris of Latin America,” is the best place in the world to enjoy a first-class tango show and to eat some of the tastiest steak accompanied by the celebrated Argentine Malbec wine.

Our expert “porteño” (as locals are called) guide will take you on a cultural journey, where you’ll get to know the most iconic neighborhoods and highlights in the city. This tour is also a great opportunity to learn from your expert tour guide the needed information and tips to make the most of your free time in the city.

Beholding Breathtaking Panoramic Views of the Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian Side (private tour)

With 80% of the falls located on the Argentine side, only from the Brazilian side can you see almost all of them at once, in breathtaking panoramic views. This is because the Brazilian footbridge lies across the river from the falls, offering a unique perspective and epic panoramic views which makes the Brazilian side different and absolutely complementary to what you get from the Argentinean side.

This is a half day private tour.

Walking Among Exotic Birds in the Iguazu Rainforest

You’re about to enter one of a kind bird sanctuary, where you’ll find the largest colony of toucans on display in the world, as well as the largest colony of parrots on display in South America, along with another 150 different bird species from Brazil and all around the world.

Located in the midst of the lush tropical rainforest, Foz Tropicana Bird Park is an internationally recognized rescue and preservation center for endangered birds, and it’s among the most important ones in South America. You’ll be side by side with a myriad of exotic birds in the three walk-in aviaries, where you’ll have the opportunity to have an up close and personal experience with amazingly colorful parrots and Toco Toucans, among many other birds that will be right next to you or even flying over your head!

Besides the diversity and rarity of many of its birds, another unique thing about the park is its location. It covers nearly 40 acres (16 hectares) or rainforest, so you’re truly going to be in the middle of nature while walking along the trails!

This is a self-guided visit lasting about 2 hours and is done on the same day you do the Brazilian side of the falls tour.

Experiencing the Unique Power of the Iguazu Falls from the Argentine Side (private tour)

“You might have seen the photos. Even read about it. You might have visited other great waterfalls before. But you probably still have no idea what to expect when you come face to face with the almighty Iguazu Falls,” stated CNN in their article “Iguazu Falls: Why this natural wonder should be on everyone’s bucket list". To put that in perspective, Iguazu Falls is nearly twice as tall as Niagara Falls and nearly three times as wide. Even the late U.S. First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt was reportedly so impressed by the sight of Iguazu Falls that she exclaimed “Poor Niagara!”

In 1984, Iguazu Falls became a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and in 2011, it was selected as one of the 7 winners of the “New Seven Wonders of Nature” worldwide competition in which more than 100 million votes were cast.

Their size and scale are unlike any other waterfall on Earth. Made up of a system of 275 waterfalls, they have a staggering water flow of up to almost 3.5 million gallons (13 million liters) per second – enough to fill five Olympic swimming pools!

Unlike Niagara Falls, which is surrounded by developments such as casinos, a revolving restaurant, and coffee shops, Iguazu Falls are located within one of the few remaining inland rainforests in South America, the Atlantic rainforest, which is a haven for more than 2,000 plant species, about 400 birds species, and 80 types of mammals!

This is a full day private tour.

Speedboat Adventure at the Iguazu Falls

Get ready for an adventurous speedboat ride while enjoying a unique, close-up perspective of the Iguazu Falls different from what you’ll see from the panoramic boardwalks. Our speedboat will ride the waters of the Iguazu River to approach the falls, getting right inside the mist formed by them.

You’ll be thoroughly splashed by the mist of falls while listening to the water’s imposing roar. The ride provides a unique and extremely close-up view of the San Martin and the Three Musketeers falls. Now it’s time to hop on board and begin our waterfall adventure!

This is a 12 minutes group tour and is done on the same day you do the Argentinean side of the falls tour.
