Best experience at Iguazu Falls
"We were a group of 6 and can only recomend the agency! We were picked from Brazilian airport, visited the Brazilian side of the falls, then on the next day moved to Argentinian side and left from the Argentinian airport. The tour guide Damu was amazing! He is kind, provides valuable tips, organized the two days so we can see everything. We didn't wait anywhere! We crossed the border from Brazil to Argentina for 5 minutes maximum and Damu prepared the papers in advance. We asked for changes of the agreed schedule due to the weather and all was fine with no extra charge. The communication was perfect, Damo was on time all days and with great attention to details- we had time for pictures, for shopping, organization was perfect!Thank you, you made one time of experience for all of us!

We absolutely loved the pass
""We absolutely loved the pass. It took all the stress out of the transfers as we didn’t know how it would work crossing the border. The guide took charge and made it very straightforward. Especially as very few people speak English. The tours were extremely well planned, the guide, Emanuel was friendly, enthusiastic, funny and knowledgeable. His English was excellent and we would recommend him to anyone. There were no issues and we were very happy with everything. Cheers Susan."
