They are separated tours, and for each one you will have to pay a ticket, but worth the price, since they are experimenting with different perspectives. The access to Iguazu Falls in Argentina, is done through the argentinean Iguazú National Park, in this case it is necessary to enter the country through the Customs, being essentially your personal documents and passport.

On the Brazilian side, the tour lasts 2-4 hours, starting with the bus ride by BR-469, leaving the Visitors Center to the trailhead, during this route there are stops for additional sightseeing tours (not included in the value of the tour).
