Hi Salmar,

Not too sure if you have already done it or not, but the tour is alright.
The hotels are basic, but the overall trip is fun.
The two overnight bus rides were pretty awful, but that's just me. It was a public coach and the first ride between BA and Iguaza lasted around 14 hours and the second one between Iguazu and Paraty was around 20+ hours. Every few hours they do have stops where you can take a 15-20min break to buy stuff and visit the bathroom.
I hope it's been helpful and not too late.
Thanks.
