I've been on swamp tours before. This was by far the best. Not just for tourists. Bob knew what he's talking about out in the swamp. This tour made this conservationist happy.

I hesitate to complain about spiders on a swamp tour, but our guide seemed to take a sadistic revelry in keeping our boat under ginormous spiders hanging in the trees or bumping the boat up next to the biggest spiders I've ever seen in the wild. He didn't just accidentally go by and bump them, he seemed purely delighted because... More

We booked the tour while passing through Breaux Bridge, La. My husband was a bit nervous about being in the craw fishing skiff because you are close to all that lives in the water! My 8 year old daughter and I were very excited though. Barbara took our reservation over the phone the day before. She was very nice and... More

We hit the wildlife motherlode on this tour. Skip the airboats. These swamp boats are the way to go, especially with a group - you'll see more wildlife and you can interact with each other. Airboats are LOUD! Price was very reasonable and we saw so many different birds and alligators!

This was our third attempt at making this tour-the first two hampered first by a health problem, and the second by weather. So, third time is charm! It was a very low-key operation and they truly seemed to care more about the preservation of this beautiful swamp land than in profit from tourists. Booking was easy, in fact cancelling was... More

Our tour guide, Shawn, was informative, friendly & funny. He took us out for a couple of hours and knows the swamp like the back of his hand. We saw gators, turtles, birds, unusual plants & some of the most beautiful areas I've ever seen. He answered all questions & knew the names of everything. Also, obviously cares about the... More

My friends and I booked a tour with Cajun Country Swamp Tours at the suggestion of the Buchanan Lofts owners, where we were staying in Lafayette in June. We found the launching dock on the lake, no thanks to an unhelpful neighbor who rather tried to discourage us from attending (bad weather coming - it didn't) by giving us very... More

Butch, our tour guide was incredible! He greeted us as soon as we arrived and made sure to acknowledge questions while still on land. While waiting on a few people to get there that ran late, he immediately started telling us about crawdads and how they survive. We learned so much before leaving the dock. He was very knowledgable about... More

We rented a car and took the drive to Beaux Bridge for this swamp tour. The guide was late arriving and we were starting to get discouraged. It was all worth it in the end when we got into the boat and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of Martin Lake. Joe was our guide and admitted he had only been... More

I have taken quite a few swamp tours and I like this one the best. The person who took our reservation honored our request to start 1/2 hour earlier which we really appreciated. Butch was our guide, a gentle man with a huge knowledge base! We had a visitor from France and he did his best to make her feel... More
