This is my second trip to Kaieteur. If it is nice you do it twice...so i decided to spend overnight. My only regret is that I did not spend two nights instead of one. Just being there when all the tourist left and having the place for yourself is really magical and a "feeling" you will remember forever. I highly... More

Kaieteur falls is beautiful! It is fairly pricey, but you take a small plane for an hour into the Guyanese interior to get there and another hour back. You get the opportunity to see three different lookout options, each one closer than the previous until you reach the top of the falls. Overall, it is beautiful and definitely a must-see!

One of the most spectacular journeys and site in the rain forest. It appears in all it's majesty out of nowhere after flying over the canopy of the rain forest!

Stay away from the edge as their is no barrier. It is interesting since we were told not to walk with any insect repellant there is some vegetation that is natural to the environment that prevent mosquitos and other insects from breeding

Like most of the Guyana's attractions too expensive! But beautiful. I went to the falls by plane on a one-day visit like most people do. I did it directly with the airlines, which made me save maybe 40 usd compared to a tour. I liked it but it was a bit fast, I mean enough time to visit the fall... More

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
