Positives Saw a great variety of wildlife - alligators, turtles, owls, egrets in their swamp habitats. Negatives We came on this tour to see animals in their natural habitat, however, at the end of the tour, a baby alligator with its mouth taped shut was being passed around by tourists for selfies. Such a shame as we would have given... More

We had a wonderful time, our captain was very knowledgeable. Saw about 30 gators, some really big ones too ! Would recommend trying to board first to get seating on the edge of the boat.

We've visited NOLA 3 times, and taken this tour every visit. It's fabulous! This trip we had Captain Boudeaux. It's a 1.5 hour trip through their private swamp in a covered boat. You'll experience such wonderful views of fauna and wildlife, we saw several egrets, turtles, and of course alligators. The gators were small and not as plentiful this time... More

We had a great time on this tour. My 22 year old son even said that initially he thought to himself, why are we going her, but he stated that he really enjoyed it. My 15 year old son really liked it as well. The drive was about 30 minutes away from downtown or the French Quarter area. We had... More

During our recent visit to NOLA we were not sure about a swamp tour; it was on our 'maybe' list. When we realized Cajun Pride combined one plantation visit with the swamp tour and gave transportation to and from the hotel we went with it and it ended up being a great decision! We saw plenty of gators - even... More

We booked through a tour. Our guide (Brandon) was excellent. It's hard to believe he does this tour regularly. He was interesting, funny and informative and really seems to live the tour he does. From photos of his escapades, to building traps and the surprise crocodile 'touch and feel' experience - great interaction. We saw LOTS of alligator (sitting on... More

Capt Allen was great and myself and my two daughters thoroughly enjoyed all the alligator, environmental and other info that he provided us ... a very authentic experience. Holding onto the baby alligator was a real buzz too. One of our favourite activities on our US trip.

Took the combined Swamp & Plantation Tour with my mom and sister the week of Dec 26th. Booked on-line with hotel pickup/drop off from our hotel in the French Quarter which was included in the price of the tour. I was told to be ready at 10:30-11:00 AM and Deborah (the driver) was promptly there in front of our hotel... More
