- SGSusanWritten on December 1, 20175.0 - ExcellentBuenos Aires to Iguazú by Bus - our journey was extended by an extra two hours making the trip one of 19 hours, a comfortable journey but arduous. The bus arrived late and left 40 minutes after the scheduled time and had to make a detour because of road works during the trip which further extended the travel time. The dinner food had much to be desired and the breakfast croissants were served without jam or butter. There were no drinks offered after the breakfast tea/coffee for the remainder of the trip. However, the scenery was lovely, the bus comfortable, the 180 degree seats were great and the steward very friendly. Having a stop for passengers to 'stretch their legs' at a few points on the journey/camera stops perhaps would have been an improvement. What wonders awaited us on the tour with our guide Graciela to both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides of the Iguazú Cataratas - nature in all its magnificence and majesty, A very humbling experience. The first day to the Argentinian side of the Falls was initially overcast and very misty and the weather slowly cleared, however the next day going to the Brazilian side the weather was just perfect for viewing. A full day is needed for the Argentinian experience of the Falls. Graciela ensured that all persons on the tour had their best experience, she provided interesting information and the day was very enjoyable. We saw the coati that are very much part of Iguazú and a caiman and many different birds during the day. Visiting the Brazilian side is a definite must, the view gives the opportunity to again experience the various waterfalls seen from the walkways the day before and helps to further appreciate the positions of the major falls relative to each other. Also, there is a walkway right out to the lower part of the Devil's Throat horseshoe shaped waterfall that can only be reached from the Brazilian side and from where one can get drenched from the spray! Special thanks to our guide Graciela for ensuring we all enjoyed the two days. The accommodation at the Jasy Hotel was very comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great, a wide selection of food. The restaurant was very convenient for dinner also and which we enjoyed very much. The hotel was reasonably close to town and to the bus terminal. Say HueQue also organised transfers for us at Iguazú for travel to the hotel from the bus terminal and on leaving, to the airport which was very helpful. Overall, a great adventure. The sequencing of our tour occured without any problems. The tour guide Graciela arrived at the time expected as did the people responsible for looking after our transfers. We have no hesitation in recommending involvement with Say HueQue and the tours they provide.Show detailed ratings
- SSSiobhanWritten on November 6, 20172.5 - AverageThis tour was not good value for money and I would not recommend it. Firstly I had to chase the agent for several missing bits of information and they were slow at getting the itinerary to me. Some info about the hotel and local amenities and what I needed for the tour days was not provided. Likewise I had to ask when and where the bus departed from. I also wasn't made aware I had to change buses. Secondly when I was met at the bus station I had to ask the driver from the tour company to help me with my luggage after he walked off after watching me lug them up a flight of stairs and then being expected to carry them to where he'd parked which was not close to the entrance. On the first day of the tour the guide lost me and some other members of the group. We had no way to contact him. He didn't have a flag/umbrella or any visual identification which is why we lost him. He didn't do head counts or check his group were with him at any point. He wouldn't tell us where the final meeting pint was either although one of the group asked several times. When we finally found him he told us to take the train back down to where we started and we hadn't seen anything at all! In the end myself and another lady did most of the tour by ourselves. The guide on the second day was better but there were only two of us. However the reason I took a tour was because firstly I thought we had to walk through a trail and would need guidance and that a personal guide would maybe take us to less touristy areas, which is not the case as it's all paved and there aren't areas where you can detour. So with a map you could walk the whole park alone. Secondly I thought that we would get given information and history about Iguasu - on the first day I learned nothing because the guide was not with us half the time and on the second day the info was very limited compared to what other guides around us were telling their groups. As for the Jasy hotel the place was nice enough but it was very overpriced and the customer service did not reflect the cost. Personally I didn't need a hotel room with 6 beds. Also I was not given any information by the reception on how to get to the town centre, ATMs etc. The reception is not 24 hours so often there was no one around to ask. Also there is no wifi in the room. On the second day I had no electricity in the morning and I had to leave early for my tour. There was not much natural light in the room and getting ready in the dark was not easy. Secondly I was not able to get a proper lunch or a coffee after returning from the Iguasu falls completely soaked. I was finally offered empanadas which were tiny although a family had just had a full lunch as I arrived. Also as I had to check out of my room at 8 I had to change in the restaurant toilets. I was cold and wet and so the whole experience was uncomfortable. When I initially asked about staying an extra night at this hotel I was told by the agent that the rate was $150 a night. For that price all of the above issues should not occur! On my final night I moved to a hotel that was a quarter of the price, it didn't have a restaurant and was not of the same quality but the breakfast was the same and it also had a pool and they gave me a lot of information about local amenities. Overall I wish I'd organised this myself but I thought using an agency would make it easier and I'd get a much better experience sadly this was not the case. I've done tours with other tour operators and they've always been pretty good but to be honest I regret the money I spent on this experience.Show detailed ratings
- UlrikaWritten on February 28, 20134.5 - ExcellentMe and my boyfriend had an absolutley amazing time in Iguazu Falls! First we hesitated to go by bus for so many hours, but the bus was really comfortable: we were served good meals and wine during the ride, we saw some good movies and slept well. The 17 hour bus ride didn't at all feel that bad, and it was definetly worth saving some money by not taking the plane... The falls themselves are AMAZING! We were recommended to go thereby a lot of people and travelguides, and when we got there we understood why. I could have spent a whole day just staring down at the impressive "Devil's throat"! All of the waterfalls were so beautiful, and the nature surronding them as well. We had a great guide who told us all about the forests and waters of Iguazu! I would absolutley recommend you to book your trip through Say Hueque because the gave us great value for our money as we were travveling on a budget, and they also gave us great tips on what to do and see there. They were really proffessional and understood what we wanted to get out of our trip to Iguazu! Thank you! /Ulrika and Roberth from SwedenShow detailed ratings
- PaulineWritten on February 25, 20135.0 - ExcellentIguazu Falls was the most worthy 16-hour bus ride from Buenos Aires! The moment I arrived into the jungly wonders of Northeastern Argentina, the bus ride did not even phase me. Within minutes of the world famous National Park and one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World , I was encountered with the magnificent flora and fauna. Then, the most incredible part was the immense amount of water falling below my feet. The walkways climb above the falls and there are plenty of beautiful rainbows on a nice, sunny day. What was really fun was walking up close to a waterfall and getting poured on by the splashes (make sure you wear a rain jacket!). Overall, the infamous Iguazu Falls is one of my favorite, eye-opening, and mouth-dropping experiences!Show detailed ratings
- NeilWritten on November 6, 20125.0 - ExcellentYou are never going to experience anything like Iguazu Falls anywhere else in the world. This was such an incredible trip. We started out at the bus station in Buenos Aires. The bus ride took about 17 hours to get to Iguazu. This seems like a rough trip but it was surprisingly comfortable. We were served wine, we watched movies, talked to other travelers, all in very comfortable seats that folded out into comfortable recliner beds. Once we got there, we were accommodated very well in a comfortable and fun hostel. People from all over were so friendly and the hostel even hosted fun game nights and delicious dinners. The national park was out of this world. I cant even begin to describe how breathtaking this place is. Our tour guide told us everything we wanted to know about everything Iguazu and even let us pick some routes. The sites are incredible, you can't miss this.Show detailed ratings
