This was great from start to finish, our Cajun tour guide was full of info and funny stories. Plenty of alligators to see though most were on the small side, however it was fascinating to watch the guides feed the gators from a platform off the side of the boat. It gives you plenty of opportunity to get some great... More

Super trip with the very knowledgable Brandon who knew exactly where to go to ensure that we all got a look at alligators in their natural state. We also saw some interesting birds and a family of raccoons close up. Brandon also had some smaller wildlife on board that we were invited to handle. These included a snake,an alligator and... More

Every aspect of the Cajun Pride Swamp Tour was excellent. Picked us up on tine in a comfortable vehicle. Short ride to a well equipped facility where we put in. Well organized, picnic tables and refreshments were available. Outstanding captain: knew his stuff, excellent boat driver, snuck up un wild life with disturbing them, dwelled when we encountered wildlife to... More

Purchased the swamp tour on a Groupon for my husband, son, and myself. We liked that it was a covered, slow boat in order to see all the wildlife. We saw (and learned about) many alligators, turtle, birds, plant life, and a brave racoon until he caught sight of the alligator! I would recommend for everyone, youngsters to seniors!

The swamp tour with Cajun Pride Swamp Tours was my first ever. Our Captain T Tom had a great knowledge of the swamp and swamp (wild) life. It was very interesting to listen to him (he grew up in the bayou) and I learnt a lot. We saw lots of aligators, racoons, turtle and some birds... We even were offered... More

Just returned from our swamp tour. So glad we went. Brandon, the guide, was fantastic. He certainly knows his stuff! There were 4 adults and 2 children and we were treated to lots of information, got to see masses of alligators and other wildlife. Even if you don't think it will be of interest Brandon has you eating out of... More

Got a Groupon and booked the tour for 6 of us. Don't remember our guide's name, but from reading the other reviews, Brandon is the best - and is apparently the guide that was on the other boat! We got to see Brandon, from our boat, feed the alligators, and that was great! Our guide did have a 3 year... More

Our captain Brandon kept things interesting. Made sure everyone had an opportunity to see all the wildlife up close and personally. Lots to see. More than just the alligators.

The swamp is not what you expect. It was beautiful!! There were no mosquito's, lots of wild life, it didn't smell and was a lot fun. Our tour guide (Brandon) brought along some turtles, a snake, and a baby alligator to hold. He told interesting stories and he fed the alligators in the swamp. Which gave time for some great...

Even on a rainy day this tour was amazing! Captain Brandon was very knowledgable about the wildlife and area. He was fun and informative. Added bonus he brought some of his own wildlife for us the hold. A must do tour. My girls said it was the best part of NOLA!
