George was our guide and he was brilliant. Made sure he informed us of everything . Got to see the alligators , he explained the lack of birds.... More

This was one of the highlights of our New Orleans trip! We took a swamp tour by boat and had the most wonderful experience. The tour guide was informative, the boat ride was relaxing, and you even get to hold a baby alligator at the end of the tour. There is also a great view of Lake Salvador at the... More

Travel to and From was easy / painless. Cost - just fine. Saw more then a handful of gators and even some raccoons. Tour Guide was awesome, we'd do this tour again when we come back to visit.

My wife and I did like the visit of the bayou on the airboat. So our general feeling is positive and we liked the trip. However there are a couple of things we did not like, related to the treatment of living animals. First, in the check in building we were concerned about the turtle in a tank that is... More

Loved this activity. It was exciting and informative. We rented a small boat, six of us, saw lots of wildlife, including many aligators. Guide was personable and gave us lots of info on the swamp. Went on 9:45 boat, it was a breezy day, no bugs and we actually needed sweatshirts at times. Highly recommend this tour.

My friend and I bought separate tickets for the ride on-line. When we got to the counter we were put on different boats and told there was nothing that could be done about it. Not only had we purchased the more expensive tickets (for the smaller boat), but I had put my friend's name in the comments as being my... More

My husband and I enjoyed this tour on our 10th anniversary. The large airboat was great. Our captain, Corey was pleasant and witty. We had a wonderful time and would totally do it again!!!!!!!

Sure, I thought this trip was a little pricey when I booked. But after doing it, I would have paid a few hundred more- it was so good! Both the bus driver and our tour guide (Allan) were entertaining and knowledgeable. We saw alligators, turtles, and eagles on the tour. Allan slowed the boat so we could take pictures and... More

In the check in building I was a little concerned about the adult turtle in the tank inside that is completely exposed with no hint of natural environment. Same with the 2 alligators. Surely putting a couple of natural plants in there for them to seek shelter against if they don't feel like being gawked at by tourists all day... More

Extremely disappointed. . . the company called me 5 minutes prior to them picking us up to inform me that the boat was broke and that they did not have another small boat available. We ended up canceling our tour with them.
