I was such a skeptic having heard that these bayou tours are boring and people fall asleep but this exceeded my expectations. Both my husband and I loved it. We got some great pics and our guide was amazing. Not to be missed. It made for a great afternoon.

Pearl River Eco Tours, like much of my New Orleans experience last March, exceeded expectations. Our guide, Wade, was just great -- friendly and knowledgeable. Even though it was early in the season (it was the first nice week of weather in a while, I was told) we still saw alligators, snakes, pigs and birds. What a beautiful place! A... More

This tour company is reliable, informative and gets you right into the bayou. We saw plenty of alligators, beautiful birds, feral pigs, two different types of snakes and beautiful foliage. Our guide (I forget his name) made the trip even more interesting with a great personality and knowledge on the area. He also handled the boat with great expertise. I... More

Thanks so much for a great couple of hours in your special part of the world. I cannot remember our guides name sorry!! But you were great. You shared your 'office' with passion. Your ability to spot wildlife was brilliant and we were grateful for this skill as we got to see such a range of wildlife in their environment.... More

We took the Swamp Tour of Honey Island. They pick you up at your hotel. The guide Garrett, was very fun and very, very knowledgeable. The tour was fantastic. We saw lots of alligators, one 10 foot long. We saw wild boars and boar babies too. The boat was perfect because everyone was seated all along the edge so everyone... More

This tour was much more entertaining and informative than I expected. Captain John is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and knows the bayou inside and out. Boats were covered, clean and comfortable.

The New Orleans area has something for everyone -- and everyone should take the time to go on the Honey Island Swamp tour sometime in the lifetime. I absolutely loved it and recommend anyone thinking of doing it to go with Pearl River Eco Tours. They are wonderful!

A friend recommended PRETE so we booked a tour. The swamp is beautiful and the guides knowledgeable while also entertaining us. We saw some gators right away. Also saw wild boars, turtles, herons. The boat we had was covered and there was seating for all (a little cozy). I was pleasantly surprised there were no bugs and though it was... More

There is something to be said about the swamp in winter. It was a lovely ride with plenty of birds but no bugs. Also, no reptiles or amphibians. No fault of the tour guide though! We booked a small boat and had a great time. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly. We had a fantastic visit and have decided that... More
