We had a great tour with our family with young kids. We saw lots of alligators and Captain Ryan told us about the local bird and fish species. Learning about the local natural history of the Atchafalaya was very interesting. We enjoyed the relaxed pace and had time to observe nature and learn about some local curiosities. They also had a really cute Cajun Christmas photo set up that we took advantage of before we got on the boat. Date of visit: November 2021

My husband’s sister and her family were visiting from out of town. They wanted a true Louisiana bayou experience. We decided on a whim to do McGee’s swamp tour and had a blast!! Captain Ryan was the best!! He was very knowledgeable about life in the swamp and provided plenty of interesting natural history about the vegetation, birds, fish, and most importantly the alligators!! We saw over a dozen alligators and he drove the boat so close I could see individual scales!! It was such an amazing experience. I highly recommend Captain Ryan and McGee’s Swamp Tour for your family and visitors.

We had a great experience with McGee's. Skip, our captain, was entertaining and knowledgeable. We were the only ones on the 10 AM tour but they still went and I'm really glad we did. Don't miss out, it was fun!!

So much fun and very informative! Our captain was Skip - you know when people are passionate and love what they do! My husband and I learned so much and had great conversation with Skip! A definite must GEAUX! We lived in Louisiana and drove over the Atchafalaya a zillion times - we decided to enjoy what God has given us and see it up close & personal!

The staff were very friendly and showed Real Great Cajun Hospitality . I took my family out to the Atchafalaya Basin and we stopped at Mcgee"s Louisiana Swamp tours. We were greeted by a very friendly staff there and we decided to take a tour of the Atchafalaya Basin. Our Boat Captain and Tour Guide Ryan helped me get onto the boat. I am a disabled veteran and I need assistance to get on and off the boat. Our boat captain tour guide then took us out into the Atchafalaya Basin. He also was very great at showing and telling us the history of the various places as we rode thru the Basin. He also showed us lots of the wild life and he was very professional as he drove the boat and showed us some large Alligators in the wildlife refuge in the basin. I would highly recommend that you pass by Mcgees Louisiana Swamp Tours on your trip to the Henderson Swamp Area. You will have a wonderful experience with their staff and their Swamp Tours. We went out on the regular tour boat and we had a great time out on the Basin. They also have Air Boat Tours too. Thank you to all of the staff at Mcgees for giving me and my family a wonderful time on our tour. I could not go on the Air Boat because of my disability and I really enjoyed being out on the water again on the regular tour boat. Thank you to all of the staff at Mcgees for letting this happen and thank you for being flexible because of my special needs that I have.
