Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America. With the swamp tales of pirates and sightings of Big Foot in the back of your mind, you may be just a little bit nervous at first, but after your first boat ride you'll want to go back again and again! You'll be overcome by the primitive beauty of the cypress trees rising from the water...the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air....

We totally loved our honey island swamp tour. Our guide was very knowlegable about the plants and animals of the swamps, the environmental effects of the swamps, and the history of the area. The boat allows for the riders to sit along the edge of the boat so that no one gets stuck 'land locked' without the ability to see.... More

We had a great tour with a knowledgable and funny guide. While we didn't see alligators, we loved seeing the wild boars, birds, and snakes. Our only negative was the booking process. When we could get through and avoid busy signals, we were repeatedly put on hold and hung up on. There is no online or email reservation process. Bring... More

We loved this tour. We visited later in the day since we didn't need the hotel transfer and were lucky enough to see several alligators (although none over 4 feet long). The highlight of the trip was seeing the wild boar, something we really were not expecting. But overall the scenery was spectacular and even if we hadn't seen as... More

Short drive from New Orleans. My husband and myself along with our 4 children ages 21-3 took this tour. We encountered a less than pleasant start with a female customer that was out of her mind and completely out of her clothes, she wanted to do the tour naked. I thought maybe we had picked a tour that wasn't family... More

We had two families who toured the swamp on this trip. The swamp was actually much prettier than I thought it would be. We managed to see a few alligators, some snakes, and a whole mess of wild hogs that the guide fed marshmallows (in order to encourage future viewing. Well worth a trip out of New Orleans to get...

This was a wonderful tour from pickup at hotel to drop off. The bayous and swamps were great to see, the tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and it was just great to get out of the city for a few hours. Definitely would recommend. We did the 6 person boat which was fantastic as the group was small and... More

The activity my grandchildren were most looking forward to on our New Orleans visit was the swamp tour, so we booked with this one that seemed to have good reviews. I don't hold a wildlife tour responsible if the wild animals don't show up (1 giant alligator and several snakes were the extent of the animals we saw), but I... More

I went on the swamp tour with 4 work colleagues, and everything was great from start to finish. We were collected from our hotel on time, the driver had a good sense of humour, and told us a lot about the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the areas we were driving through. The swamp tour itself was fabulous and so... More
