Program of the Essequibo River day trip in Guyana

From Georgetown, you will be transferred by bus across the longest floating bridge in the world, on the way to the Essequibo River, where you will board a boat. The first stop will be Fort Island and continue on the Essequibo to Kyk-Over-Al (See over All) which was once the Dutch seat of the ruins of the former stronghold which guarded the junction of the Mazaruni and Cuyuni Rivers and onwards to Baracara Falls. Here you can swim. Bartica is the hub of the mining community in the northwest of Guyana. The town is a hive of activity as the miners pass through on the way to their camps further in the interior. The township is located at the junction of the Essequibo and Mazaruni Rivers and most travel is done by boat. You will stroll down the main avenue for a glimpse of Bartica life. At Bartica the pioneer atmosphere is still strong and it is often compared to a Wild West town. We will have a local lunch in Bartica before departing for Georgetown.
