This tour was awesome! We did see a lot of alligators, turtles, raccoons and birds. The tour guide was really good and told a lot of cool stories about the swamp and other interesting things. It was really beautiful and we liked that this swamp is protected from hunting and fishing. There was also cats there too...so, if you're a... More

I was skeptical of this when my husband wanted to do it. I was not a fan of swamp things, but after this tour I am! I was amazed at how beautiful it was and how clean the water was! We saw at least 20 alligators and apparently that is only about 5% of how many you see. We went... More

We visited here a few weeks back and loved every minute of it!! The gentleman's name escapes me but he was a lot of fun and was super informative of the swamps wildlife, plantation & history. You even get to hold a baby alligator!!! Well worth a trip!!

I really had a great time. Captain Danny was informative and funny. I saw plenty of alligators. I learned more than I expected and I got great pictures too.

This was a very nice tour with a very knowledgeable guide. The boat doesn't go all that far but you don't need to, every thing you want to see is close. If you want to learn about gators this is the place to do it.

Some friends and I recently went on a Cajun Pride Swamp Tour and it was the best tour group we could've picked. Our guide was so informative and made sure everyone was having fun. Getting to hold an alligator was definitely a new experience and you can tell these people love what they do. Got to learn stories about the... More

This was an awesome experience, highlight of our trip. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the local area, shared some of the local history as well as information on the local culture. He tossed marshmallows to the kids so they could feed the gators, and boy did we see gators. The only disappointment was we didn't see any big... More

I would rate this zero stars. My husband and I purchased new orleans power pass and called to book our tour. The employee told us to be there at 9:30am. W arrived at 9:28am the boat just pulled away. They would not turn around to let us aboard. They did offer us a spot on the 12pm tour but we... More

If you want a fun yet educational tour, this one is it. Our guide, Capt. Alan, was a native Cajun that knew his history plus the birds, animals and vegetation that we saw in the swamp. He was interesting to listen to as he talked about life in the swamp and all the animals. We saw a lot of alligators,... More

Went to the swamp tour with my girlfriend on a trip to New Orleans. Everything went perfectly from the pick up to our excellent guide Brandon. He brought tons of animals with him onto the boat from albino snakes to a baby gator. Definitely suggest and the price point is perfect!
