We spent a fun Sunday morning in the air boat. Our guide was very knowledgeable, though very opinionated and political about the politics of saving the swamps. We could have done without his "soapbox". He did take us on a beautiful 2 hour tour of the swamp. We saw lots of alligators, though our guide was quick to remind everyone... More

Where do I begin. This company is very disorganized. They left my wife and I sitting in a parking lot for one hour waiting for a bus to arrive. Then when the bus finally arrived David, our bus driver, got on the intercom and began convincing the other passengers that it was our fault he was running late. I could... More

Chose this tour because they let you hold a baby alligator. Our guide Jay was amazing: he knew everything about the swamps and gators and was entertaining. Highlight of our trip to New Orleans

We took the small boat tour and had a blast! Our guide was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. The trip was just under two hours and worth the money!

My husband and I paid a bit more and went on the small boat. We did not regret that decision. It was just us and another family of 4 and we had a lot of time to look around, take photos and the guide answered all of our questions. The Guide was great and he brought us everywhere; small swamp... More

At $75.00 each person to go on the small airboat tour I thought it was a little more expensive then it should be. We were told on the phone to be there at 9:30am for a 9:45 am sharp departure and that the tour lasts 2 hours. We left at 10:05 and returned at 11:35. Now don't get me wrong... More

Pay the extra and go on a small boat, the larger airboats looked like they were struggling to take off with all those people on them. Guide was great and got us up really close to alligators on several occasions. Went through some really pretty small swamp areas too. Would loved a bit more time going fast on the water... More

It was great fun going out in air boat and riding through the swamps. There was just the six of us in our group and it was perfect. Steve our driver was wonderful and spotted lots of alligators for us to see and he would explain things once we stopped. You wear ear muffs so you don't hear the noise... More

The airboat tour of the bayou was a highlight of my trip to New Orleans. Our fantastic guide was Li' Lou. He was so knowledgeable and clearly cares about the gators, wildlife and nature in the bayou. We saw several gators but two stood out. One followed us and came on shore (see photos) so we could get a close... More
