This was a bit of a last minute decision for us to do this tour on our way from NOLA and Leesville, but we are so glad we did it. Butch was a fantastic guide. Kind, easy-going, and extremely knowledgeable. We got up and close with the gators, yes, but the tour was so much more than that. The beauty of the water and trees, the ability to get so close to everything, and Butch's endless facts and stories he told throughout the tour truly made it a complete experience. The lily pads were past their prime, so I might suggest an earlier fall tour (or Butch suggested spring as the best). But I highly suggest this tour.

I have been on many swamp tours & they are all enjoyable. However, this one was quite special. The skiffs are small enabling the tour to go into areas bigger boats cannot. The Atchafalaya Basin is breathtakingly beautiful. The Eco tour guide very knowledgeable & fun. Of course you will see alligators, but many spectacular birds as well. I highly recommend this wonderful tour.

We had the tour guide Butch who was so knowledgeable about the swamp and full of anecdotes. It was a very interesting tour, we saw loads of alligators, turtles and birds.

Would really recommend this tour, it really was a highlight of the holiday

My husband and I travelled to Louisiana specifically to do the swamp tour. Originally we had it scheduled in for the Saturday evening, but because of the heavy rainfall we had to reschedule it for the Sunday morning. Barbara who I spoke with in the phone was very helpful and accommodating.

On Sunday morning, we were met at the boat dock by Shawn, our swamp guide, and because everyone else in the group had arrived early, we set off straight away.

Shawn was very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, and he made the tour even better with all of his snippets of interesting information about trees and alligators and birds etc.

The swamp was much more beautiful than I had imagined it would be. The cypress trees trailing down, contrasting areas of water and the total serenity of the place. We saw lots of alligators (Shawn was excellent at pointing them out), herons, crows, banana spiders, tiny frogs, turtles, dragonflies and even a snake. The lillypads were a lovely sight too - water standing on top of them like varying sized diamonds.

Absolutely loved this whole experience - it was one of the highlights of our entire road trip :-) Would recommend highly.
