if you have made it all the way to Guyana don't miss Kaieteur. You will not be disappointed. The sights of the rainforest, the sound of the rushing water and the moisture all around you is unbeatable.

50 minute flight over the rain forest, and the pilot does a fly past of the falls so you get a fantastic view of them before setting foot on the ground. We went to four viewing platforms which moved closer to the falls each time. The first view was the best overall view as you could see the whole of... More

you fly over jungle and rivers, the trip itself is spectacular. the waterfalls are amazing, just a big huge drop, and if you are lucky, from the airstrip to the three different view points you can spot a golden frog in the vegetation - this is a trip not to be missed if you are in Guyana - and it...

A one hour flight over a sea of green, tracing a winding river, following a gorge and then circling the falls twice to get that great photo shoot. The pilot was considerate and very skillful. Chatting with him during and after landing at the falls, he reveals that he has done this trip over a thousand times. A thousand time... More

Towards the end of the flight from Georgetown to Kaieteur Falls, one feels as if one is entering Jurassic Park. In just minutes, one is transported from a tropical city to a vast and remote rain forest, parts of which have yet to be discovered. Right before arrival at the falls, one begins to see beautiful tepuis in the distance.... More

If you take the day trip, (WONDERLAND TOURS, RECOMMENDED) you'll get an efficient plane ride and a nice, really informed, guide (if you get Eric), but you'll always be on the march.. If you've got the budget it's worth it to spend the $150 for a room at the Kaiteur lodge. Accommodations are primitive, but the view is spectacular and... More

I went with Wonderland Tours, located in Georgetown. The guys there communicated with me via email and my trip was a great success . My family and I had a great experience and it was a lifetime dream fulfilled . Wonderland Tours is a reliable and honorable company. The guys there are gentlemen and took great care if us.

I visited Kaiteur Falls and absolutely loved it was very majestic and breathtaking The 2 hour tour showed different angles of the falls and the special golden frog that lives in bromeliads and only at Kaieteur. The charter flight was nice and the arrangements from Dagron Tours were excellent. this is a must visit to Guyana.

This waterfall is located in Guyana, South America and is about 3 times taller than Niagra falls in Canada. You reach there after an hour of flying thru the dense amazon jungles and the formation is just awesome. You can hike to different spots and even go right into the falls. You have to see this........
