If you are going to Guyana, make the effort to go to Kaieteur Falls. It's about an hour flight over the mostly untouched forest from Georgetown and some lovely views. We use Air Serviced Limited to organise the tour. The falls are a moderate walk from where the plane lands and can easily be done. The tour guide was knowledgeable... More

The falls are amazing but be very careful who you book with. I was offered to book directly with Air Services Limited at a lower cost but almost missed on seeing the falls in the process. I booked my tour well in advance and was offered to pay via bank transfer. Since I wasn't in a position to do that,... More

I love waterfalls and seeing this one was breathtaking. An amazing site to behold. Especially from the air, but all around a good tour. They should make it less expensive so more locals will experience it

If you are visiting Guyana, your trip is incomplete without a visit to Kaieteur Falls. Its a breathtaking experience sure to be enjoyed. Kaieteur Falls is the world's widest single drop waterfall, located on the Potaro River inside the Kaieteur National Park, Guyana. Its part of the Amazon forest. I took the Air Services Flight, the journey is approximately around... More

I visited Kaieteur Falls as part of a two-week tour in Guyana with Wilderness Explorers. Unfortunately, the day we were scheduled to go, the falls were closed to all visitors due to an apparent suicide there. Wilderness Explorers was very professional and booked a charter plane to take us the last day of the tour on our return to Georgetown.... More

A must for anyone who likes Waterfalls or spectacular views. But come prepared, do your home work first. Flights to this magnificent place vary upon operators, destination booked at (direct at airport is cheaper, as is booking in the countryside & not the capital city) & whether going of a weekday or weekend. Prices vary from $29,000 GYD (Guyana Dollars)... More
