Do you offer group tours?
Sadly no, this tour can only be arranged in private.
But if you can find more people that wants to join in the tour, the price for everyone will be less.
Can I book my own flights?
Sure! No problem! We will suggest you the best flight for this tour based on your timings and date.
Can I do this tour on the same day I arrive?
It is possible to arrange this tour on the same day you arrive to Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo, but we will have to check the flights available for that day.
Is there a maximum for this tour?
Not at all, we can organize a tour for any amount of passengers. If needed, we can suggest adding another guide and divide the group in two.
From which city is better to do this tour?
If somewhere in your trip to South America you visit Buenos Aires, we strongly suggest to make this day tour from this city and not other like Rio de Janeiro, because from Argentina the flights are a lot cheaper than from Brazil.
Does it worth to hire a guide?
We suggest hiring a guide (we have an english, italian, french, and spanish speaking guide available) during the whole day because he/she will arrange the visit to make the best use of your available time, and you will not lose any time looking, for example. on how to visit the park and where to lunch.
How much does the ticket entrance to the parks cost?
The ticket entrance to both national parks (Argentinean and Brazilian) cost around USD 30 per passenger. But we suggest to add them in your tour with us to don’t worry about using your credit cards or bringing cash.
What should I bring to this tour?
Bring confortable shoes and clothes, because in Iguazu is very hot. We also suggest to bring water (you can also buy at the park), bug spray. and sunscreen. Your clothes have to be light and easy to dry under the sun.
If you plan to do the boat navigation (Great Adventure) bring a change of clothes or bath suite, because after this tour you will end all soaked.
Pack a light bag! You don’t need a lot of things to visit Iguazu on a day tour, and you can leave some of your stuff in the lockers if you want. Remember to bring your passports (you can also wrap them in a plastic bag to cover them from the mist).
Is this tour suitable for childrens?
Keep in mind that this tour can be a bit hard for young children. We suggest bringing enough water and comfortable clothes for them. You can also bring your stroller if you want (ask us if you want us to rent one for you in Iguazu), there are some parts that you have to bring it with you due to the stairs, but at the devil’s throat and the upper circuit you can use it without a problem.
Do you have other suggestions?
We strongly suggest taking a very good breakfast before going into this day tour, because you will spend a lot of energy walking. If your flight is very early in the morning, the guide in Iguazu will ask you if you want to take breakfast before going to Iguazu.
Obviously, don’t forget to bring your camera with enough battery for a whole day. You will be constantly taking photos of this beautiful destination. If you have some waterproof cover for them we suggest to bring it to this tour.

Day Tour from Buenos Aires
"In January I used this company to visit Iguazu Falls from Buenos Aires for the day. Everything went smoothly, from the start of the day to the end. My driver was on time for my early morning flight and the tour guide and driver were at the IGR airport waiting for me when I arrived. Since I did a solo tour, my guide was able to answer all my questions and we were able to go at my pace. She was very knowledgeable! While at the falls, I did the buffet lunch, the boat ride (from the Argentina side), along with both circuits. Since I had a late flight back to Buenos Aires, I was able to take a tour of the town as well. I would definitely recommend this company for your trip to Iguazu Falls!

Our Day Trip to Iguazu Falls From Buenos Aires
Our day trip to Iguazu Falls (Argentina side) was amazing!!! We were picked up at our hotel in Buenos Aires, driven to the domestic airport, flown to Iguazu and met at the airport by our friendly guide Chris. Chris was the BEST! He expertly guided us through the park to see the upper and lower falls. Since 80% of the falls are on the Argentina side, the boat ride is a must! It allowed us to see both the Brazil and Argentina side. We also paid to have lunch included. There’s only one restaurant in the park. Know that you will more than likely get wet. You’re in a rain forest. If you’re on the boat ride, they provide you with a large waterproof bag to keep extra clothes and valuables dry. We also traveled with a large plastic ziplock bag so that I could pack wet clothes for the plane ride back to Buenos Aires. A driver met us at the airport and delivered us safely to our hotel. It was a full day but well worth it! We loved it!

This is by far the best itinerary for a…Trip to Iguazu Falls
"This is by far the best itinerary for a trip to Iguazu Falls. Everything was planned for us right to the last minute. Our driver met us at the hotel where he took us to the airport. The air travel was about an hour and we were met by our tour guide Anna there at the airport. Our driver took us to the Falls where we had an informative education with Anna on all the aspects of the area. The Falls are breathtaking! Nothing prepared us for the beauty and expanse of one of the natural wonders of the world, and with Anna as our guide, we were able to see and learn even more. The Adventure Ride was beautiful only to be outdone by the boat trip under, yes under, the falls! After all this, we were escorted back to the airport and flown to Buenos Aires. Again, we were met by a driver and driven back to our hotel. All this went smoothly and was well organized. Thank You Vincent G

Fabulous Iguazu Falls Tour with ripioturusmo.com
"My wife and I have just returned from an excellent trip to Iguazu Falls with ripioturismo.com. From initial contact before Covid in 2020, through several iterations, the final trip (10/01/23 to 12/01/23) from Rio de Janeiro, organised by Ramiro from ripioturismo.com was fabulous. Last minute changes forced by Latam Air’s poor service, was rapidly accommodated, and the resulting tours were first class, and good value for money. Collection from Foz, transfers to and from the hotel, tours of both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides of the falls, together with a Tango Evening, border crossings, 4x4 Forest tour and spectacular boat trip under the falls, all achieved with professional, knowledgeable and helpful tour guides. I cannot praise the whole team enough. We would definitely recommend both ripioturismo.com and Iguazu Falls to anyone wanting a spectacular experience.

Iguazu Falls Day Trip
"The tour that was put together for me and my partner was perfect! We scheduled a day trip from Buenos Aires. They provided transfer to and from the airport to our hotel. All services ran right on time. Our tour guide from Iguazu picked us up from the airport in Iguazu and brought us straight to the park. Pillar was a fantastic tour guide that provided us with tons of information about the park, animals, and the plants. I will definitely be using our tour company again.
