This tour was by far the biggest highlight of our trip. From the second we arrived we were loving it, a big thanks for it definitely goes to our guide captain Bishop that was entertaining and knowledgeable. We saw 30 alligators, racoon, spiders and turtles and learned a lot during the 2 hour trip. If you are anywhere near you... More

Ryan was a very nice guide for a perfect trip. He pointed out all the interseting spots on the river and kept a funny and smooth atmosphere on the boat. We highly recommend this Tour.

The bus ride out to the swamp from the French quarter was long but the driver gave us a nice history/geography lesson as we passed many interesting spots. The swamp tour was awesome! My husband and I loved it. Right off the bat we saw the largest gator in the area referred to as Brutus. He was so cooperative(which we... More

Me and my husband took this tour and loved it. It was a little bit more to be picked up from our hotel but very worth it. Deshawn was our driver and was very informative offering her advice on good restaurants. We enjoyed her company. Our boat captain was Bishop and we was very entertaining. He had a ton of... More

We did a city/cemetery tour with Robert (pronounced Ro bear) and the man knew his stuff!! I learned so much about this city and her history and culture that I now have a different perspective all together on New Orleans!! If you've never been to New Orleans, take this tour. Learn from this experience and then explore the city on... More

We did the combination plantation/swamp tour in one day, 8/8/14. The bus ride to the plantation tour was great and we loved our driver-she was full of interesting information. We then got picked up by a different driver for the drive to the swamp. It was the worst drive I have ever experienced, the driver made no sense when he... More

We had a great time! About 40 min easy drive from NOLA. Saw feral pigs and lots of gators. Guide Scott was great. Several tours to choose from. Not sure how they all compare but Id recommend this one. Scenic and the 9:30 time was cool temps.

Cpt. Bishop took us out for a little less than 2 hrs, and we saw tons of alligators, some wild pigs and even a raccoon. Good stuff and lots of fun. Bring sunscreen!
