We were lucky we had good weather on this day. We took Air Services Limited flight, which took one hour to get there. The pilot explained to us that we would go over the coast for a while then over rain forest and then twice over the Falls before landing at the tiny airport. We saw the city and the... More

Not the tour organizers fault, but when we went to visit the falls in late January, the falls was not visible due to the heavy cloud cover. Anybody going to a falls tour needs to keep track of this phenomenon. The pilot who was flying the Cessna towards the Keieteur Falls airport also had a hard time locating the airstrip.... More

Must add a trip to Kaiteur falls to your bucket list. It's a short 45 minutes by plane journey from Georgetown. You will be flying over the pristine rainforest during the plane journey. You can view the falls from up to 3 vantage points and every view point will take your breath away. Take your cameras and flat shoes for... More

Cool plane ride for 2. About an hour or so flight to the falls. Then 2-3 hours there with wildlife/nature hike and several excellent views of the Falls. 3 times higher than Niagra! Very very cool day trip.

If you go to Guyana and don't do the Kaieteur Falls then you didn't do Guyana! This is a must do attraction when visiting the country. If you need to plan your trip, make sure your planning revolves around this attraction!

It's a great half day trip, leaving Georgetown by small place and landing at the airstrip very close to the falls. It's worth it! The views are just spectacular. The higher the flow rate the better the experience ... but ... so long as the water is flowing JUST DO NOT MISS THIS TRIP.

Not easy but well worth it! The cloud forest was such an interesting and unique experience that it equaled the incomparable 3 views that our tour guide took us to see Kaieteur.

A visit to Guyana just has to include a trip to Kaieteur Falls. A visit to the falls requires a one hour flight and my wife and I travelled with Air Service Limited which were much cheaper than the many tour operators that offer trips to Kaieteur. The falls are magnificen and the walk from the landing strip to the... More

Unless you are traveling in a large group of at least 8 people I don't recommend bothering with Guyana and Kaieteur Falls. I traveled there to see the Falls and had made reservations with two different companies for the air tour. Air Service reserved a spot for me on a Saturday and Ever Green Tours on Sunday as a back-up.... More

Kaieteur Falls are the highest single drop waterfalls in the world. The only way to get there is by (chartered) airplane or helicopter. I used Air Service Limited to visited the Kaireteur Falls, as this air company has a guaranteed departure on Saturdays. It's a one hour flight and on site, you're accompanied by a certified guide who takes you... More
