Had a really great tour with Tray. He was very knowledgeable and made sure we got to see everything from the deep swamp to all kinds of animals. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the area.

Really enjoyed this swamp tour. We were lucky and managed to see alligators, raccoons, wild boar as well as birds. Our tour guide was really informative and knew the swamp so well! Would 100% recommend to anyone, well worth the price.
