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.

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

We took this tour this morning with 16 others, all in town for a wedding. It was worth every penny. The guide is knowledgable and very entertaining. We learned a lot about the swamp, the oil industry, and animal life. Really impressed that he could "call" out his trained gators to come by the boat to be fed. Plus a... More

This is an enjoyable tour to see the Louisiana swamp from the safety of a boat! We saw lots of 'gators and a Bald Eagle up close. The captain also treated his passengers to some good old Cajun music with his homemade accordion and guitar. We heard some good Cajun songs and experienced a very enjoyable afternoon.

The Cajun Man does exist and his tour is realy worth. Precise explainations of the bayou's nature, a warm welcome and cajun songs, made this tour someyhing special. We also got explaination in french ( in cajun in fact). We saw alligators of course, a lot of birds, some tortles.

Let me preface this by saying, I did not attend this tour. I had called the day before and reserved a spot and camped close by. When we arrived, a store attendant told us he didn't think Guidry was going out and we better call him. It had rained the night before but the morning looked beautiful and promising. Upon... More

This is a great relaxing two hours in the swamp of southern Louisiana. A covered large "party barge" trolls the fresh water swamp while Mr. Black points out the local wildlife, flora and fauna. He has a wealth of knowledge about the area and provides interesting and humorous commentary. Mr. Black sang and played Cajun music to the delight of... More
