From the very moment you meet Paul (and his team/Angel-Eco Tours) you rapidly understand that this trip is going to be different in all senses. In a nutshell: Passion for the Park and its People, eco-intelligence when it comes to details/organization and, last but not least, an epicurean mind combined with a touch of the best British sense of humor....

This is a magic trip with wonderful landscapes which make you feel that you are back in the first virgin mornings and moments of the world . The changing lights and shades , the mysterious top mountains , the never-ending rivers and the so fragile and elegant hundred of falls, put you progressively in an semi-extactic state of mid-dream/mid-reality ....

Be aware that depending in the season and the amount of recent rainfall, that the falls will vary in its size. Having said that, the real beauty isn't the falls so much as the amazing setting that it sits in. The tabletop tepuis are awe inspiring. Best to be done by individuals that like adventure and are in good shape.... More

We had been looking forward to our Angel Falls trip since booking out holiday. We had an early start and drove to the airport where we boarded our plane for the flight. We flew past the Orinoco river and a forest 5 times the size of Margarita. We had been warned if the clouds were above we wouldn't see much... More

We visited Angel falls in the dry season, meaning there was not so much water going over the falls. it also means there is not so much water in the river to get the boat there, and we almost did not make it. If you travel in May (Dry season) triple check if they are running the boats all way... More

We didn't go in the rainy season so the falls weren't as voluminous as they could've been but fantastic plane ride past the falls which were still spectacular!

We went in the dry season so it takes longer to get there as the river is low. You have to walk part of the way so the boats can be pulled upstream over the rocks. We had to leave at 4:30 am to make the journey in one day. Due to airline issues our flight had been cancelled going... More
