This was one of the most peaceful relaxing adventure I have been on. The Flight there was piloted by a very skilled Female pilot. ( don't know her name ) but fantastic takeoff and landing on a 2000 FT runway. The Hike was a bit short but the views were breathtaking and the group was a fun group. You must... More

I was born in Guyana, Linden that is but moved as a child to Toronto! I decided to visit family in Guyana after not being there for years and had to add Kaiteur on my list of things to do! This was about 2 years ago in February 2015 so i'll try to add as much detail as possible -... More

Kaieteur Falls is the highest single drop fall in the WORLD! This magnificent fall is a must see attraction! Our flight to the falls was a smooth 55 minute plane ride. When we landed our guide and other park personnel greeted us and gave us a brief overview of what to expect. The trails leading to the fall is so... More

On a day off, we booked this with Evergreen Adventures and had a brilliant experience. The booking was smooth, the plane had a real "atmosphere" to it and Kaieteur itself was just stunning. If you are in Guyana, this is one place that you just cannot miss!!

A real wonder of the world!! I went with Roraima Tours and although the 1 hour small plane ride was bumpy due to a lot of rain the view from above was breathtaking! ! A small and pleasant hike after we landed took us to 3 lookout points but unfortunately the top of the falls is still closed due to... More

Its an excellent waterfall to visit, it is nestled in a gorge, the tranquility, nature and view is a humbling experience. The price I paid for the tour with Air Services Ltd was USD$165.00, its a one hour flight with a single engine 12 seater aircraft, quite sturdy. The flight leaves Ogle aiport just outside Georgetown, take the bus, it... More

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.
