Great tour, full day. Argentinian side of falls is 90% of them, so this tour is a must. Unfortunately, as always, too many people, lots of time waiting in lines, but in the end it is worth it. Be prepared to get completely wet on the boat ride. In fact, it is the main attraction.

Getting onto the river as close as possible to the waterfalls was awesome. Going beneath a couple of them was great and the surprise in the whitewater rapids was exhilarating. I only wish it was possible to get beneath Gargantua falls without risking pour lives!!!

Beautiful experience, we went as a family with two teenagers and we liked everything! Excellent transportation, the Guide, the tour, the places to have lunch and the finishing touch is the boat ride.

Well, breathtaking views. Nordic logistics a bit chaos, they don't notify you of the pick-up times, you have to be on top of them

Visited Argentinian side of waterfalls with the group. Good organization and service. Thank you :)
