Overall good experience. Captain Gary was a great guide; On the way back to New Orleans, driver took us by a couple restaurants they recommended even though it took him longer. My only complaint is that it was very cold when we went so didn't get to see much wildlife.

They emailed me at 6pm the night before our 945 am airboat, good thing I checked my email. This didn't set well with me, it tossed our plans around. Rescheduled our airboat for later in the day. It was quite nice, except for stopping in the swamp for close to an hour to pass around a pet gator, rather than... More

Our guide was wonderful -- he knew all the in's and out's of the bayou -- he'd have to, otherwise you'd get totally lost! We were on an airboat with about 24 people. It was a really nice day, but still cool at about 65 degrees. The boat gets going pretty fast so wear a jacket if it's under like... More

Other than our actual boat guide, the entire staff seemed rude and dismissive of their clients. The bus that was sent for the New Orleans hotel pickups was late and stopped out of sight of the pickup area. The driver called me and asked where I was. I was right in the waiting area, but he acted like I was... More

I've been on this tour twice. Each time I have had just the most amazing time. Each captain of these boats are fun and keep you on your toes. Seeing the gators and being on the swamp. It's just something you need to see in person. Worth the money. A must when you go to New Orleans.

I wanted to see alligators and it was warm enough for us to see two !! Probably, at different times of the year, you could see more. We also saw turtles and many kind of birds as well as some beautiful scenery. We learned a lot from our guide and riding on an airboat was a really fun experience. We... More

This was a little pricy, but we thought it was worth it. Our airboat captain (Bebop), is actually a college graduate in biology. The tour was quite lengthy, and very informative. We went slow through channels in the swamp, where Spanish moss draped almost everything. It had been chilly as of late, so we didn't see as many gators as... More

I loved this tour so much! It made the perfect ending to our trip 😃 I looked forward to it all week and was not disappointed! Bobby, our guide, was very knowledgeable and answered all my silly questions and had great stories. The best time to go is march, april, may but we did see a couple little gators even... More

Face it, you need a break from the French Quarter if you are in New Orleans for more than 48 hours. This is a great side trip-- and you get to drive over the huge New Orleans bridge!. Huge fun for adults and teens and kids alike. Great guides. Wonderful at pointing out local wildlile, including gators and nesting owls.... More
