My friends and I (a group of 6 girls) recently visited New Orleans and visiting the swamps was on the top of our list of things to do. I found out about Cajun Pride through Trip Advisor and saw that they have a Groupon for 50% off their swamp tours. Even though it was pretty cold outside (mid 50s) it... More

Such a fantastic tour. Spent a little over 90 minutes on the tour and answered any question we could think of, with lots of topics covered (and even a little haunted history, as well!). Would highly recommend this group since they tour in their own wildlife sanctuary - since they own the land and don't allow hunting, there were lots... More

The swamp was beautiful and our tour guide was a lot of fun. The best part might have been our warm and friendly driver. It was so convenient getting there and back.

Nolan our guide was very informative and entertaining! We saw lots of alligators as there are not hunted on Cajun prides land. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Even helped me with samples of gar scales for jewelry making!!!

Excellent tour! We were able to see a plethora of wildlife and were also able to hold and take photographs with a small alligator as well. Our captain was great, as was the whole experience.

This was a great experience. Quite relaxed and informative. Our captain was a delight; full of stories and information. The shuttle driver was a delight and really opened my eyes to the devastation caused by Katrina. There was a beer sale too. Loved the grounds and feel this would make for a great place for a party. This is also... More

Excellent tour. Really nice to experience a little more than just Bourbon Street and the French quarter for our honeymoon. Our captain, Tom was great at what he did. I don't think he stopped talking once during the whole tour and it was always interesting! He fed some larger gators and we saw the raccoon family as well. Would highly... More

We had a fantastic time on our swamp tour. Captain Joey was incredibly knowledgeable, funny, and informative. The location was beautiful and we were fortunate to see not only many alligators of various sizes, but other swamp inhabitants and beautiful plant life. Well worth the time and money. We really enjoyed our tour.

This was a great basic tour. It is great for first time visitors in the area. The tour only traveled in a very small area, turning around a number of times to cover the same area of swamp. I would have liked to see other areas. There were alligators, raccoons and birds that hung out around the boat. The animals... More
