Captain Henry has a passion that he passes on in his tour. It was heartbreaking to hear him talk about how hunters killed his favorite alligator on Close Encounters land. His relationship with the wild animals was fun to see.

Don't miss this experience. Wade was our guide and he was the best. Ask any questions. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife. We saw heron, pigs, racoon, flora and fauna and of course gators. Bring a good camera. Heads up though...buy your souvenirs before your trip. The lines were so long in the gift shop when we returned and our... More

Totally worth it. So glad I went. Got great photos. Never seen anything like it. If you only do one tour while in New Orleans do the swamp tour. It's about a 40 minute drive from most city hotels and the actual tour is about two hours.

My husband and I ventured out on the Honey Island Swamp Tour (@ 0930 hrs). Their shuttle picked us up at exactly 0800 hrs (print out said between 0800 & 0830, so good thing we were ready right at 8!). We had bought a voucher off Groupon...easy to use and allowed us to book directly with the Company's website. It... More

I wanted to optimize my time while in New Orleans, Cajun encounters was an excellent opyion to visit 2 of the most visited plantations in the region. Bus picked me up at the hotel, guide was good and explanations during the time to visit the first plantation. Laura's plantation in my opinion was more representative of the creole culture and...

When I booked I was told they wouldn't pick me up by my hotel, or a nearby one (which was actually in the drop down menu on their website). So I had to go to a tourist office on Decatur street. We got a mini bus to a bigger bus which was air conditioned and the bus driver gave us... More

We did a City Tour and a Swamp Tour with these guys and found them to be both professional and informative. The City Tour took in most of what you would want to see and stopped at one of the City Graveyards as well as City Park. The weather was a bit rainy but we still saw many of the... More
