We booked the swamp tour last minute, and we were so glad we did! They picked us up at the hotel between 10.00 am and 10.30 am just like they promised. We originally signed up for a large airboat due to lack of room in the smaller ones, but when two spots opened up we decided to pay the extra... More

The tour guide was amazing and his knowledge of the area and gators was flawless. The actual scenery was stunning. We did the last tour of the day, saw 3 to 4 gators and had an amazing sunset. Even the guide (Sorry Ive forgotten his name) was taking photos. He was the one that could name all the species of... More

Such a great tour! We had a great time getting up close and personal with the alligators! Captain Corey was funny and entertaining as well. Definitely a must do adventure!

The brochure shows an array of wildlife that "could" be seen during your hour and 45 min swamp tour. The reality - the hour 45 includes the 30 min it takes to load the boat and get out into open water, then re-dock at the end. I'd call it an hour 15. There were plenty of gators, mostly young ones,... More

The company does a good job with the tour. We were on a 16 person airboat and had a great time. Lots of gators but not much else. The highlight was the massive 18 ft gator that was over 100 years old that came over to the boat to be fed by the guide. This gator was huge. The guide... More

Had a great time during this adventure. Did get picked up from the hotel and dropped off at the hotel which was super convenient. Our driver gave us a history background on New Orleans neighborhoods as well as the area where the swamps are. Our airboat captain, Corey, did a great job with providing educational information on the swamp and... More

The airboat wasn't anything better than you could get from a regular boat swamp boat tour. The guide was nice and the info was good but the area isn't much of a swamp tour due to the airboat size. I guess I expected the airboat to be able to get to places that a regular prop boat couldn't. I have... More

A little pricey but... how else is this Jersey Girl gonna tour the swamp? Very convenient van pick up from hotel. The welcome station was busy (check out the albino gator inside). Our local guide George shared many interesting "life on the swamp" facts., and marshmallows (!) with his many long-tailed friends. One of my most favorite adventures in Lousianna.

The guide catered to one side of the boat more than the other so if you were on the 'wrong' side you missed out. I am not sure this was worth the money and I wouldn't do it again.
