I did the falls as part of a package tour, which I highly recommend. There were 3 viewing places, each better than the other. Wonderful photo ops. Very impressive. Not to be missed when in Guyana.

Stunning example of Guyana's pristine wilderness. You can augment your fly-over with a gentle walk to several look-out spots for more breathtaking views of the falls and down valley. Rainbows abound. We went with the very capable and accommodating Air Services Ltd. This is truly...More
