We flew here from Baganara Resort and then back to Georgetown. Others came directly from Georgetown. it is well worth the effort. Usually the plane flies over the falls then comes to land at the ranger station where you get a ranger to take you to the view points. We stopped at three view points starting with the furthest away... More

I went to see Kaieteur Falls February 23rd 2015. I paid 190 USD for the trip. Took a small plane with about 10 passengers including the pilot. Didn't get to see the falls from the plane on my way there or back due to the low visibility caused by the rain clouds. We landed on a small airplane strip and... More

There are a number of tour companies that fly to the falls for a day trip. We went with Dagon tours for $200 a person plus $20 Visa charge, but if we had time, we could have done the same trip with Air Services for $145 per person. The funny thing is we flew on an Air Services plane. There... More

Honestly a MUST DO in Guyana. There are many different tour agencies offering packages to see the falls but this usually just involves a day trip with two hours at the falls themselves. This is highly recommended for those on a very short timeline. HOWEVER, for those with a little bit more adventure under their skin, would wholeheartedly recommend hiring... More

I loved everything about this day trip. I visited November of 2013. The small 8-10 seater plane we took to visit the falls was a new experience for me. It was all part of the adventure. Flying over the rainforest in a plane with a jungle survival kit under the seat was exciting. Flying by the falls was breathtaking. I... More

Not that many tourists come to Guyana for vacation, so make sure you take advantage and go visit this wonderful site. The pilot did several flybys and when we departed he followed the river back to Georgetown, AWESOME !

It's hard to describe the feeling you get from a visit to kaieteur falls. The plane right is kind of scary, but it gives you a breath taking view of the guyanese interior, especially the many small waterfalls on the many table top mountains in the guyanese interior. Upon first seeing Kaieteur falls itself was intense, pictures not videos could... More

My first glance at Kaieteur Falls from the air took my breath away. Kaieteur Falls are in the centre of Guyana's rain forest and a National Park has been established to highlight the falls and the biodiversity of the rain forest. As soon as our plane landed, we wasted no time in walking down the nature trail that led to... More

We took Air Services Limited to Kaieteur Falls and had a great experience. Leaving from Ogle Airport - my first experience in a small plane (14 seater) - On prior trips my only experience was in Georgetown. It was truly as other TA members have written - flying over a sea of green forest with mining areas from time to... More
