About
Leave the bustling streets of New Orleans behind for a couple of hours on a family-friendly swamp tour. After transfer from your city hotel, climb aboard the covered swamp boat. During the ride, keep your eyes peeled for snakes, birds, turtles, and, of course, gators. The lazy pace of the ride allows you to see landmarks including a Native American Burial Mound, Cajun cemetery, and fishing village.

The whole experience was awesome. The driver who picked us up from French Quarter was very cordial and practical. They called to walk us one block to canal so that can save lots of time and anguish from other passengers. Makes perfect sense !!!

Captain Reggi was phenomenal! His unique way of narration was very much enjoyable - and guess what we get to hold a baby allegator in hand !!! And he even put him on my daughter’s head 😳😳😀😀

Overall - loved it every bit

Captain Bebop was an excellent guide to this part of LA. We stayed in the city but felt the need to see the wildlife in the rural areas, and this tour was perfect. The airboat is loud and fast (ear protection provided), so avoid this tour if that's not your bag...but with temps in the 100s during our stay, it felt awesome to fly around the swamp with the wind in our hair, seeing alligators, jumping fish and all kinds of different birds. The captain was big on conservation, and quick to mention that so many other animals kills more people than gators every year, so we shouldn't be so quick to fear them. Overall, a fantastic tour that I'd love to do again. Thank you!

What's better than a morning on a boat surrounded by alligators? This was a great experience and I couldn't have been happier with Louisiana Tour Company for their organization and great experience. They picked me up and dropped me off at the door of my hotel as expected, which was a huge plus (for a fee, of course). The tour guide was excellent, full of funny quips, interesting tidbits, and a few surprises that I won't spoil. We saw plenty of alligators while on the tour as well as other animals and some beautiful scenery. A swamp tour is a must-do on any trip to Louisiana and I definitely recommend Louisiana Tour Company.

Everything ran like a well-oiled machine. This was at the top of my to-do list for my NOLA trip and was not disappointed. The hotel pick-up and transfer were prompt and comfortable. I opted for the covered boat over the air boar and was very comfortable. Our captain (I unfortunately don't remember his name) was very knowledgeable and funny. We got to see a couple of large birds and LOTS of gators. I'd definitely recommend and go again.

An old friend and I met up in New Orleans to catch up with one another and decided to take a Swamp Boat Tour which was great fun. The bus picked us up at the hotel as scheduled. The bus was clean and tidy and the bus driver was professional, courteous, and friendly. The boat tour itself was lovely. It was relaxing and calm. The tour guide was knowledgeable and also quite funny. It's a great opportunity to learn some about the bayou area's history and ecology. I'm particularly glad we did the swamp boat tour and not the air boat tour as the air boats (which were also in the area) were extremely noisy and I don't think it would have provided the same learning opportunity though the people doing it were also enjoying themselves from the looks of things.

This swamp your was a blast!! We loved getting out on the water in the air boat. Definitely bring a rain poncho. We got caught in a rain shower and were drenched. Totally worth it. We saw lots of alligators and our tour guide was fabulous.

We opted for hotel pick up, which saved us the hassle of finding our own way there. The bus transportation was spacious, cool & comfortable.

We arrived and got onto our airboat with Captain Dewey. Brilliant experience, with a great guide!

Would definitely recommend.
