Just awesome!!!

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.

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

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!!!!

The largest single drop waterfall in the world. It feels like a movie. Take a tour! It's incredible and a must see.

I was on the Kaieteur Falls tour with Dagron Tours for a day. The arrangements were impossible to confirm with ANY tour company and airline prior to coming to Guyana, and the actual date was dependent on having enough visitors to fill a 4-seater plane! The flight was about 40 minutes and you could glimpse the waterfall on the approach.... More

The place can only be reached by plane or a seven-day trip through the jungle. Unfortunately we didn't have time for the jungle-trip so we had to take the plane. The plane is very small, very noisy and offers a confined flight experience. However, taking a look out of the window makes it all worth! Upon landing, we discovered that... More

This was an amazing place. Although I told the guide that I could not do inclines he looked at me and stated that I would be fine and that it would not be difficult. He was wrong, I totally struggled to the first overlook stop, all the while apologizing for being so slow. He then radioed for another guide to... More

An amazing trip. Well worth the time and money involved to get there. Only accessible by airplane. Go to Orinduik Falls as part of the trip.

This waterfall is a must for someone visiting Guyana. I did a combined day trip Kaiteur + Orinduik falls with Evergreen Adventures Guyana. The trip has been perfectly organised, and the guide very nice. Price 200 USD, lunch and beverages included. Book in advance because is highly requested and the airplanes are only for 12 passengers.
