Toured Lake Martin (near Breaux Bridge) in Mr. LeBlanc's boat. 8 French speaking people and 4 of us. He kept all of us laughing with his Cajun humor. He is very knowledgeable about the plants, animals and birds that are in his backyard. Next time I have out of town guest we will do this tour with them.

Got a hot tip from some fellow Canadian tourists we bumped into earlier in the day who recommended Monsieur Lebalanc if we wanted a swamp tour. So we drove to Beaux Bridge and with assistance from some locals my wife and I were on the tour with Monsieur Leblanc. From start to finish the tour lasted just over 2 hours.... More

While staying in Baton Rouge, it was suggested by our B&B proprietress that LeBlanc's was the swamp tour in the Lafayette area. We left bright and earlier to get out to Breaux Bridge area to meet our guide for a 9:30AM tour. Only one tour that day. Our guide is a 74 year native who has lived, fished and hunted... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. It was one of the highlights of our 3 week road trip from Savannah to San Diego. Norbert knows this lake like the back of his hand. Fabulous scenery. Recommended. Includes free moonshine! Totally authentic!

My wife and I took the LeBlanc Swamp Tour as it was recommended by Mary Linn at Au Bayou Teche Bed and Breakfast in Breaux Bridge where we were staying. The tour is $20 pp. It was a very exciting, fun, picturesque, relaxing and memorable adventure. The swamp tour lasted about two hours. There were ten of us on the... More

Most everything has been said about LeBlanc Swamp Tours, except that Mr. Norbert, the owner and one and only guide, was featured in two National Geographic articles and various film pieces about Cajun life. Over the years I have taken several swamp tours and this is by far the most enjoyable and authentic. One note make sure you get exact... More

We read about Norbert's tour in various places and all were in unison: if you're passing by Lake Martin, you are simply a FOOL not to call him for the tour. So we did. We were in the area for only 2 days and called him for the second day as we were quite backed up and done with our... More

This is exactly what I was hoping for when I started looking for a rather touristy thing to do, a cajun swamp tour. Loved the guy, his boat, his expert knowledge and charm. Felt like I was immersed in the cajun culture. So much life and experience he bases his tour off of! Kinda stumbled upon this tour by accident... More

We read about Norbert and his trips on TA and so glad we did. He runs his own show against the bigger, noisier and less caring operators...one who takes his dog to bark at the alligators...this scares them away from their home logs forever. Norbert is a true gentlemen to man, woman, beast, alligator, bird or fish. His respect for... More

Norbert LeBlanc is a soft-spoken, funny and knowledgeable guide to the Lake Martin cypress swamp that he so clearly loves. His tour is about two hours, his boat is very comfortable (swivel padded seats!) and he keeps a very slow pace all around the perimeter of the lake. We saw many large alligators (very close!), turtles, birds and the magnificent... More
