our guide Sandro was great spoke fluent English and offered great insight into the falls and park. Once in the park we didn’t have to queue and drove straight to the falls where we were able to walk around at our own pace. Sandro went above and beyond to make our trip memorable offering tips and advice. Would high recommend this trip to everyone.

Amazing trip!! We started with only the bird park and end up buying the boat tour and heli tour. Boat tour was amazing and its a big MUST! Literally getting extra shower from the falls. Our heli tour was cancelled due to insufficient time, but the tour company refund 100%. Thanks to our guide Mauricio for amazing experience

MMC are a truly professional company. Really lovely day with our guide Vladimir! He took us everywhere, explained everything and was so kind. Best time ever. You will love the boat tour if you like adventure and getting wet. :-)

Everything was well organised, thank you. The waterfalls experience is incredible!
