"We had an amazing trip, the tours Ramiro Organised for us were absolutely perfect. The level of service was faultless & we had a great tour guide who collected us from the airport and looked after everything for us. From looking after our luggage to transporting us swiftly & safely across the border to meet our tours & hotel. We were delighted with all the ground arrangements and will definitely use Ripioturismo again for any future travel requirements.

Amazing VIP Day Trip
"This was an amazing adventure! We are so happy that we added all the extras to our package. Ramiro, our travel agent, was able to quickly help us reschedule our trip when our flights were cancelled due to weather issues. Junior, our guide, picked us up at the airport in the morning and treated us like VIP's the whole day. He shared many details about the falls that we would have never learned on our own. He also shared many details about birds and plants that we were interested in. We were able to see many different animals as we were leaving the park at the end of the day, as there were less people. Junior was always on the lookout to fulfill our desire to see a toucan. As we were driving out of the park, he spotted a toucan high in the trees for us to see. Junior was a very thoughtful and knowledgeable guide. The falls of course were jaw dropping amazing! So many walkways to see the falls from different angles. Pictures and videos will never show how wonderful this place is. We found the jungle/boat ride tons of fun. We were very happy we brought an extra change of clothes and sandals to wear on the boat ride. You will definitely get wet. This is a must do experience and well worth the money!
