Save yourself some money by booking your tours in town. We paid way more on line than others did who booked through local agents. The tour is not as described. It’s not an in depth tour with time at the falls. It is one of those whirlwind tours. Be prepared to spend $300 to 400 pesos extra for fees and lunch. The lunch was awful. Not good value for money
