This was a nice break from the city experience of New Orleans. We saw about 10 gators, and lots of birds and cool plants. The tour company did have a bathroom before we went out on the bayou (it was in a storage unit, which was pretty neat) This was something we were worried about before our tour. Our tour guide Dustin was great. At the beginning we took long breaks so he could spew out facts (he was like a walking encyclopedia). It made the tour more educational. His stories made the tour. Thanks for a great tour.

I took a group of girls to celebrate our friend's bachelorette party. Max (our guide) was such a wonderful guid! He shared all his knowledge about the environment around us, the history and characteristics of all the plants and animals we encountered throughout the tour. He also had such a fun attitude, hilarious, witty, and extremely kind. He went out of his way to find beautiful backdrops & take photos for us to commemorate the occasion. I would highly recommend this experience, and ask for Max!!! ;)

While in New Orleans, I went on the kayak swamp tour. Josh was our amazing tour guide, so knowledgable and patient with some of us in the group having little to no experience kayaking. I already loved alligators, and we got to see some really nice ones, but this trip made me fall in love with the cypress trees that make this swamp so unique. What an unforgettable experience, and a perfect break from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans. If you are in New Orleans, book this tour, you won't regret it.
