This is truly one, if not the most, breath taking thing that I have seen. I went with Evergreen Adventures to Kaieteur falls which included a trip to Orinduik falls on the Brazil border (also truly stunning and you can relax under the falls). Evergreen has the most reasonable price of $199US. The Kaieteur trip includes a guided tour to... More

Spectacular view, I highly recommend seeing in person. Pictures do no justice, aerial view is pretty amazing but being on the ground and viewing from the 3 points was incredible.

Our trip to Kaieteur Falls was tied into a 10 day trip in the Guyana's which was booked with Dagron Tours .From our plane we could see the most picturesque landscape below. Our tour, a few minutes later, was even more rewarding... we spotted a rare Guianan Cock of the rock in a nearby tree, butterflies, a tiny gold frog... More

This is an absolutely breathtaking venue and I'm glad that I extended my stay in the country to take a trip up to the falls. The one-hour flight there is already an experience, overflying rivers meandering through the jungle. And on the approach getting a birds-eye view of the river and the falls as it has carved out the rock.... More

Visiting the Kaieteur falls has definitely been one of my best travel highlights so far! I can recommend it to anyone! I booked my flight directly with air services for $ 132. The time spend at Kaieteur is around 2 hours, so very short! It doesn´t seem that they promote staying over at Kaieteur for a night or two. One... More

I visited Kaiteur Falls (and Orinduik Falls) through Evergreen Adventures in June 2016. It cost $200 USD per person and included a lovely lunch and water and juices. We liaised with Mona to make arrangements and we were escorted by our knowledgeable and very competent tour guide Jamal. We boarded a caravan 12 seater plane at Ogle airport through Trans... More

Go there and see with your own eyes. On the level with Victoria Falls, Iguacu and Canaima. Just make sure you will have enough time.

Absolutely magnificent trip.The correspondence with Air Services prior to the trip was prompt and informative. My only suggestion for improvement would be an online payment facility. Currently you can verbally reserve spaces then pay in person at Ogle Airport or via a booking agency in Georgetown. The plane ride there was thrilling (ask to sit in the Co pilot seat).The... More

Absolutely breath-taking!!! The Falls and surrounding areas have not been touched by civilization and it should stay that way. All best of Mother Nature... Absolute MUST see!!!!
