We went on a chilly day; we were unaware (and conveniently uninformed by the Company) that the chances of seeing reptiles or any animal on the tour were very slim, until after we started on the tour. We hardly saw a bird or two. As...More

Our family had an amazing time on the airboat swamp tour. Captain Dylan was the BEST! His sense of humor and knowledge of the wildlife was greatly appreciated. This will be one of our favorite memories. Thanks so much!

I think they will, but when we signed up we requested to be picked up and they agreed to do it, but said it would be cheaper to use Uber.

We are a rain or shine tour. Normal rainfall is not enough to stop us. However severe weather including lightning, high winds, and driving rainfall can delay, shorten, or cancel a tour.

Swamp Tour, Pharmacy Museum, Plantation, Haunted History Tour are all great. You won't need a car anywhere within the quarter... only to get to the plantation and swamp, but the tours usually provide transport. We did a combo swamp and plantation tour but I don't know if that's included with your pass. Definitely do the paddleboat cruise down the Mississippi too... but don't do the dinner package if you can avoid it. There's so many better places to eat in the quarter and in Garden District,...More
