We had gotten on the wrong transport van from our hotel, but the folks from Cajun Pride found us and went out of their way to pick us up. The woman who drove us from New Orleans to Laplace was friendly and full of tips and stories about the area. Just the ride to and from made the money we... More

We had a great time. Captain Dan was very knowledgeable and funny. Really enjoyed him going out on the plank and feeding the gators. See the picture.

Took 2 of our grandchildren on this swamp tour, which is just outside of New Orleans. Great guide explaining the animals that live in the area and a chance for the kids to hold small, live animals. Trip peaked with the guide feeding the alligators from the side of the boat.

Loved this tour. The guide, Brandon,was very knowledgable about the swamp wildlife. We took advantage of a groupon. This is an interactive experience, totally ready for elementary to school age kids. You can bring your own drinks!

I was there with two friends for our first Swamp Tour ever (from Chicago). It was really good: the guide was interesting and had many knowledge about the swamp, weather was beautiful, the landscape is wonderful, etc. The guide had a few alive animals on board so we could actually hold a little alligator in our hands, it was absolutely...

We would not recommend these guys for the plantation tour, unless you want to spend the whole day on a bus. We love New Orleans but unfortunately this is officially our worst experience in the city.. We opted to do the Oak Alley plantation tour, which the website states is a 5-hour tour, and more affordable than most of the... More

I have been on other swamp tours and this one compares very well with some of the best. The time of day, early morning was a good time to see quite a bit of wildlife. Our boat captain was knowledgeable and interesting.
