I had initially wanted to take a larger group tour but circumstances changed and I ended up on a 6 person tour. This was the perfect way to see the Louisiana swamp lands. Being a local, the tour guide (Wade) was exceptionally knowledgeable, discussing many different aspects about the wildlife but about living in the local area in general. He... More

This past weekend my wife and I visited New Orleans. We had a great weekend. One of the things suggested by Tracy Rich, the tourist guide at the Renaissance Warehouse Hotel was to take a swamp tour, and she suggest this one in particular. They picked us up at the hotel, drove us approximately 40 miles to Slidell LA. The... More

We scheduled a swamp tour with Pearl River Eco Tours not knowing what to expect. We went on a morning tour with Captain John and we have to say it was fantastic. John was interesting, as well as showed us a lot of wonderful sites. His respect of the area lived up to to their name. I would highly recommend... More

This is a very good tour. We had about 16 people in our boat but it could have fit more. The tour came through with the promised alligators. The guide was very knowledgeable and had good bits of history, botany, geography and general trivia that we used for the rest of our trip as quiz questions for the kids. They... More

At first we were unsure which tour to take, as there are so many in the area. We finally went with Pearl River as it seemed like the best option for the price. This is a family-run business and they only have two boats, but they are very professional and take care of their customers. We booked the 20-person boat... More

I was very nervous about this activity since I am terrified of snakes but the guide was excellent and the swamp is beautiful! The gators were interesting and no snakes!! A must do when you are in the area!!

We were able to sign up last minute (morning of) and were not disappointed. Great tour from a knowledge and friendly Captain John. Good length at just under two hours. Got to see lots of alligators, heron, turtles, hogs, and more. We were on a boat with 19 ppl and though raining at the beginning, stayed dry under the covered... More

Tiffany, We are so glad you were able to book last minute with us! Captain John is truly a treasure and knows the swamp so well. To me, he has the best stories ever! There is so much to see out in the Pearl River and Honey Island Swamp at this time of year. Thankfully the rain wasn't too bad... More

Our hotel concierge recommended this tour to us and we can see why. We were picked up from our hotel , which does increase the price, but it saved the hassle of getting the car out of the parking garage in downtown NO and driving 25/30 miles to the swamp. There were only six of us in the mini bus... More

Malcolm, I really enjoyed reading your review and loved the part about how your captain treated everyone like adults who had a true interest instead of a bunch of people he had to amuse for two hours!!! I so get that!! Before I came to work at the swamp tour, I was a school teacher, and I took my kids... More
