This was excellent all around: the pick-up at our hotel, the facilities, the quiet and serenity of our tour into Honey Island Swamp, and the knowledge of Tray, our guide. Not only was he of the area, living off the land, familiar with the swamp because it was his domain, but he'd obviously read up on the birds, plant life,... More

We knew we wanted to go on a swamp tour. There are many to choose from, so we asked about them at our hotel. I had read information about all of the options, and our hotel admired this company. I have been to NOLA many times, but this was my very favorite experience ever. I've traveled all over the world,... More

This was our first trip into the Honey Island Swamp and it didn't disappoint. Our guide was Trey and he gave us all the info we wanted and answered a lot of questions from the small group. It was not rushed and we got some amazing photos of the swamp area. Would definitely come back to this company again.

We took a tour on the 20 passenger boat with captain Ian,who was very knowledgeable about the area. It was quite warm for this time of the year so captain Ian was able to find us some Alligators to see and we also saw wild hogs and raccoons! Bottom line it was a amazing experience from booking the tour with... More

I had such a great time on this tour! I went expecting to just have a good boat ride and see a few animals but it was much more than that. Our tour guide Tray was extremely informative, not only explaining about the different types of birds, fish, etc but also about the plant life, and even culture of the... More

The concierge at our hotel booked this tour for the four of us and we were very excited to go on the tour. I received a phone call confirming our tour that morning and we were reminded to be outside our hotel at 1:10 where the van would pick us up. We were there at 1:00. At 1:30 I called... More

I just want to thank you again for speaking with us on the phone concerning this issue. We work hard to make this an excellent tour from start to finish and take full responsibility for problems when they occur. It helped us tremendously to be able to get a first hand account from you about the problems you incurred, and... More

These tours are led by people who know the "land" / water inside out. Our guide was also a world class storyteller and had us laughing often as he described the quirks of the locals (himself included). You come away with a great appreciation for the beautiful and complex ecosystem... And ten great jokes and stories to share.

Although we haven't seen any alligator, due to the a bit colder weather, the tour was really excellent and I can fully recommend it! Try not to miss it!

We took a tour with our guide, "Tray," who grew up in the area and was quite knowledgable about local history. It was just cool enough that we didn't see alligators but it didn't matter. We saw wild boar, various types of birds, and more. We learned about cypress trees and Spanish moss, the impact of Katrina and global warming,... More
