Guyana travel beckons those with a sense of adventure and an understanding that Guyana’s tourism infrastructure isn’t as developed as most other countries in South America. Tours of Guyana often involve adventurous journeys by river, unsurfaced roads, and light aircraft. The rewards for travel here are to see places far from mass tourism with excellent chances to spot wildlife and learn about the Amerindian culture. Both our top 2 Guyana Tours include a trip to the Kaieteur Falls which is Guyana’s number one tourist destination. Kaieteur Falls is surrounded by pristine rainforest and completely free of crowds. Our Guyana tours also visit other intriguing corners of this little-visited country, such as Guayana’s beautiful capital, Georgetown.

Popular Guyana Tours
Our Wild Guyana tour offers some unique things to do in Guyana including a night in a simple guesthouse at Kaieteur Falls. While most people just visit for a day, by spending a night at the falls, travelers get to see the Cock of the Rock and Kaieteur Swifts going to roost behind the falls and the early morning mists. This trip to Guyana is especially varied as it includes the city, rainforest, waterfalls, and savannah. There are lots of opportunities for spotting wildlife including giant river otters and giant anteaters plus many colorful birds.
The Three Guianas Adventure Tour combines Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana, ending in the Brazilian city of Belem. This combination allows the traveler to experience very different cultures. In Guyana, there is British influence, Amerindian communities, and Indian heritage. In Suriname, there is Dutch influence, Indonesian influence, and Maroon villages. French Guiana is still an overseas department of France so French is the main influence, plus there is an H’ mong community. Finish up in Brazil and learn about Amazonian customs and especially food. While travel to Guyana and Suriname is quite simple, French Guiana is more developed.
Custom Guyana Tours
A Guyana vacation is a real adventure and is perfect for anyone interested in wildlife, rainforests and indigenous communities. Despite its location on the Caribbean Coast, Guyana is not the place for a beach vacation, though there are some good places to relax after exploring the country’s wild interior, such as Baganara Island Resort which sits in the mouth of the Essequibo River. Guyanese food is getting increasing global recognition and culinary tours are available in Georgetown. Delven Adam’s Backyard Cafe is gaining international claim and must be booked through an agency if you wish to dine here.

What is the Best Time to Visit Guyana?
Guyana’s interior is most accessible from January to April, during the dry season. During this time roads and hiking trails are open, and rain is less frequent. However, Guyana has a subtropical climate and visitors should expect rainfall year-round. While the dry season can be hot, there are also significantly fewer insects, like mosquitoes and Kaboura flies.
