Highly recommend this tour. Just a brilliant experience. Small groups, and a highly knowledgable and entertaining guide! We saw Aligators up close, as well as a whole range of swamp creatures. This was a definite highlight of our tour of the south.

We loved this tour of the Bayous and swamps on an air boat. We saw many alligators, large and small. Our guide was so obliging wanting us to see everything in his stamping ground. The flora and fauna are wonderful! Don't miss it!

My husband and I lucked out as the weather was unusually warm for February. If you want to make sure to see alligators on your tour then do a little research as to their hibernating times. If you don't see alligators on your tour make...More
