Took the 11 year old who had a great time. The guide was very informative and the kids loved touching and picking up the alligators.

Took the family including my 2 1/2 year old son. The tour guide, Jimmy, really made the tour. He was very funny, entertaining and informative. The tour was very educational and bringing the real purpose of the ranch, conservation, of the American Alligator to light. I definitely recommend getting reservations (military and seniors get a discount) and paying for the... More

Not sure what side of the bed Timmy P got up on but my girlfriend and I loved this place. We like to see different things, especially nature stuff. My GF was excited to touch an alligator for the first time. Everyone (including the owners!) clearly knew their stuff and were very accommodating. The alligators are well cared for, and... More

This place was great all the way around. I've stopped at a few different gator farms across the south with my kids. This gator ranch tops them all. The guy who gave the tour was awesome. Even when my 3 year old kept trying to take the stage. Their prices are very fare compared to some others, but way more... More

We had heard some very good reviews of the Ranch from friends. The tour was fun and educational. The staff was wonderful and our guide was great! Our visitors had a blast and... More

My husband and I decided to take our three kids here (3, 7, 8) while we were in New Orleans. We didn't know you needed a reservation but they let us join the tour. It was so neat! It took about a hour and a half, we touched a baby gator, fed a bunch of gators marshmallows, and took a... More

My twelve year old son and I went to the insta-gator ranch as part of a day trip while visiting New Orleans. He wanted to hold an alligator and this seemed like the best place to go. The staff was wonderful. Our primary guide was incredibly good with the children on the tour. He seemed to LOVE his job. The... More
