Great time!

Definitely worth the drive out of New Orleans, the whole family enjoyed the ride and sights... "Black", the guide, provided an authentic touch to the ride on the bayou.

Really terrific experience for all ages. You got to see some really great wildlife, feed the alligators and learn quite a bit from the very knowledgeable tour guide. I'm a city girl, my son is a nature boy and we both loved this trip! We also went with my mother, cousins, aunts and uncles - ages 4 to 73 and... More

My wife and I took this swamp tour and we really enjoyed it. Some of the time was spent in a secluded spot in the swamp being lectured on swamp life and alligators and the rest of the time was spent cruising the swamp backwaters. We found it all very interesting and we enjoyed the trip immensely. Don't miss it.....

I do find myself constantly bringing family from out of town to swamp tours when they visit us in Houma. I had 5 early 20s cousins visiting from NY this time and decided to go with A Cajun mans swamp cruise this time. This is by far the best swamp tour I have ever been to. The captain Mr. Billy...

Black Guidry has retired as the tour guide for the swamp cruise but Billy Gaston, the new operator, did a great job! It was obvious he had a tremendous knowledge about the swamp and all of the critters that call it home. Being an avid photographer, I was glad that the boat was covered--especially when it started raining just before... More

I must admit I was disappointed when I learned Black Guidry no longer owned the cruise - After talking to Capt Billy Gaston I said what the heck - let's do it anyway - We had a huge family group (almost all from south Louisiana) for a 50th Birthday celebration for my brother- This was the best time ever! -...

I was surprised when I called to confirm our tour that Black Guidry had retired sometime ago. Not really wanting my guest to get caught up in Cajun music, but to see what Mother Nature has to show us, and what we can learn about the swamps in South Louisiana, I signed up for Saturdays tour. We have taken about... More

The Good: Beautiful scenery. Laid back & Comfortable boat ride. Peaceful. Decent prices. The Bad: Lady on the phone doesn't seem too well orginized, told us the early tour was cancelled when in fact it was the late tour, almost cost them $130. The person you call to reserve seats is not located at the same place the boat is... More

We first did a tour with him 15 years ago and since we were back for our son's 21st, we figured why not. Well, after a couple of "It's not a good day to go out", we managed to go on our second last day in Louisiana. Same man, if a wee bit older and with in his words, "less... More

We went on this swamp tour as part of a group on a tour bus. If you are from another country and have never seen an alligator or a swamp, it might be OK. I agree with the comments about the guide being rude. It also was very canned. By that I mean, he has trained various alligators and an... More
