We had so much fun on this tour. We did the small airboat and it made flying through the water so fun and exciting. Our guide, George, was so informative and shared many heartfelt stories about this beautiful area where he has spent his entire life. From the alligators to the cypress trees with Spanish moss draped over them to... More

We did the small boat tour and I would highly recommend it. He is a great guide and incredibly knowledgeable about the history and ecology of the bayou. Great sense of humor and went out of his way to ensure that we all saw lots of gators. Answered a ton of questions. First rate experience. He made it fantastic.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and stopped several times during the tour to discuss and explain different features of the swamp. It was very informative and worthwhile. We were in the large boat and it was fine. The airboat is very loud but they supply earmuff style ear protection. Our tour guide actually jumped into the water and fed marshmallows... More

Went on the adventure with a large group while in town for a conference. It was fun and exciting and would recommend others to use this group for a tour. If you can get Lance as the guide you will not be disappointed. He was courteous and kept the adventure fun, including a little demonstration of in water swimming and... More

My partner and I did this tour and it was fantastic. Our boat driver Steve was great, so knowledgeable. Got to see lots of alligators and other wild life and it was so fun scooting around on the boat. We read a review before we went suggesting a smaller boat and we definitely recommend doing that too as you have... More

This was a really fun tour. We booked it the day of and got the last seats on the boat. Our guide was a little crazy because he actually jumped in and played with and hand fed the gators. We even got to hold and take pictures with a baby alligator. He was very knowledgable about the swamp history and... More

We had a really great time doing the airboat tour. We were picked up from our hotel (for an fee) and on the drive from the quarter to Lafitte our driver, Monty, would point out things of interest. Lance, our airboat tour guide was fabulous. He was funny and very informative. He even jumped in the water with the alligators!... More
