Our tour guide Brandon was very interactive. He brought lots of animals and materials on the ship to make the experience hands-on and exciting for everyone. This tour was a lot of fun for any age. We loved our swamp tour and highly recommend this to any New Orleans tourists!

Our Capitan Brandon, made this a great fun and educational adventure. We saw gators, raccoons, birds, and he caught a fish. The animals he brings along was a lot of fun for everyone. This is a very fun attraction and we highly recommend it for everyone,

This is the perfect tour for those not wanting an airboat tour, but wanting to see the swamp. Very knowledgeable guides tell you history and other facts of the area.

My friends and I used a groupon for this tour and it was well worth it. We paid the extra to get picked up in downtown NOLA. Our driver was excellent and provided some great information. Brandon was our guide on the swamp and he was great. The big gators were not out but we still were able to see... More

Good tour in a beautiful place! Excellent tour guide who knew a lot about the swamp. It was the off season so we didn't get to see any gators. The tour guide had a baby one with him and we all got to hold him.

we went during the off season for gators sights but Brandon worked hard to find us one and we saw some other great animals. Brandon was very knowledgable. He educated us on the ecological system and the animals in the swamp. He also brought along some great animals for us to hold and see. I truly enjoyed myself and learned... More

They wrote us that they would pick us up in the lobby of our hotel. At the agreed time, no one showed up. We asked in our hotel and they already told us: they are always late..... We called them but they already left. Turned out we should wait outside. The guy came back, very unfriendly that he couldnt reach... More

I have been on this tour twice, and the second time was not as great as the first time. Both times the captains were very knowledgeable, and I was able to learn a great deal about the are, the history, the wildlife, etc.; both times, they passed a small alligator around so people could hold it in their hands and...

This is Lori with Cajun Pride Swamp Tours. We understand your disappointment was not seeing the alligators swim or eat as they did on a previous trip. During our winter months (Halloween to Mardi Gras), alligators do not swim or eat because as reptiles, they are exothermic. They need to gain body heat from the outside temperature and environment in... More

Booked online and soon got a confirmation email explaining there would be 60 school kids and asking whether we'd like to take a later tour; we didn't because of time and convenience and when we arrived they put us on the boat with the least kids - great customer service thanks.
