Booked a trip as it was not too expensive. I have to stay it was well spend money and a whole trip was great. Didn't see any gators buy it was cold and they were hibernated. Great guide, funny and informative. Had so much fun. There were some pigs and it was enough. Highly recommended

We took the City and Cemeteries tour while in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. I am very glad we did. It was the best guided tour I've ever taken. I'm sure that it was due in large part to our tour guide Jason. He combined humor with stories and an extensive knowledge of history. I would highly recommend this tour.

Booked a honey island swamp tour through this company during our stay in New Orleans. From the initial booking to the cashing out in the tourist shop, everything was seamless and headache-free. Our captain was Captain Troy who was a delight! Extremely knowledgable & friendly. He really knew his stuff and had a ton of fun facts. Just when you... More

My husband and I took the city and cemetary tour and our tour guide "Jason" gave an outstanding presentation! I learned so much about New Orleans though this young man. If and when I return to New Orleans I will be taking one of the other tours; I only hope that they are as informational as Jason. My husband is... More

My husband and I did the tour package including the plantations in the afternoon and the swamp tour in the evening. We didn't realize we wouldn't have time in between the 2 tours to stop at our hotel which is right in the French quarter so we didn't have any bug spray with us. When I mentioned stopped for bug...

Had a fabulous tour despite rainy cold weather. Butch, our guide, was awesome! Picked us up at our hotel on time and was very knowledgeable. Doesn't get any better!

I am torn writing this review. I am not sure if I would have rated this tour higher if I hadn't had a much better tour last year with a different company. last year we did an airboat tour and loved it so I might be comparing it to that. This year we wanted a different swamp and tried something... More

This was a great way to see a good part of the city, with a stop at a cemetery. We were picked up right at our Bed and Breakfast front door. It was a small vehicle. Twenty people or so. They also were picked up at their hotels. The driver was very informative and interesting. The cemetery stop was very... More

We then stopped at a sculpture Garden for some beignets and a walk thru. Then we toured the location hit hard by Katrina and the mansions in the... More
