The only word our "guide" said to us was an unenthusiastic "hey". Maybe I misunderstood what should have been expected, but there was no history of the area, no anecdotes, no corny jokes. Unless they get some new guides I will not be back.

We took 5 of our children (ages 8-14) on a swamp tour, and we all loved it. Our guide was wonderful- funny, and very knowledgeable of the wildlife, culture, and history of the area. His stories even kept the attention of the youngest. We loved his authentic Cajun accent and it was awesome to hear him call the alligators in... More

We enjoyed every bit of our time, from the jukebox, to the wonderful hosts to the swamp air boat tour! Great food, great hosts, great tour, what more can you ask for? True southern hospitality. We sure will be back soon.

We did the swamp tour via airboat and it was so fun! There were 4 in our group and the boat only holds 6. I did call ahead to get on the list and I recommend doing that for the airboat. They provided earmuffs for everyone since the boat can be pretty loud. It was actually quite smooth though; we... More

We stayed here in our own rv. The thought of being on a swamp to get a LA type experience was appealing. Until we got there. Don't get me wrong. I don't expect a swamp to be clean looking. But neither do I expect to be surrounded by what can only be called itinerant travelers or long stay gypsies. It... More

My parents and my Husband and I were gifted with this swamp tour and we had so much fun. Our guide was so knowledgable and fun. We shared the tour with 2 other families, one American and one family from France. Our guide spoke both English and French effortlessly. He knew of the best places to show us large bird... More

Traveled out into the bayous, under the immense roadway, and into the wetlands and swamps of LA. Saw baby alligators and the mamma too. Our boat captain was funny with stories and jokes, and it was nice to actually experience Louisiana bayous after watching Swamp People. What a life! I think you would have to be born into it to...
