My family and I went on this swamp tour and we couln't have been more pleased. They were so knowledgable about the swamp and Lake Martin, so interestering. The whole crew was so nice and friendly. The tour guide stopped for us to take pictures of the beautiful, bayou, birds, gators, flowers, he even stopped and picked flowers for all us ladies,he was awesome. The little store had nice gifts and the lady that worked in there, we just wanted to take her home. The price was great, the tour was fantastic, and the people GREAT southern folks....I would highly recommend Champagnes Swamp Tours, in fact when we go back to Louisiana will make a special trip to Breaux Bridge to take another tour....one word AWESOME

We made the tour in the afternoon and it rained massively for a bit. But the tour was great and the guide was knowledgeable and funny and stopped whenever there was something good to see and waited till everybody had their pictures taken. They adapted the boat so the chairs swivel around which is an awesome feat because you can look around without sitting awkwardly on a bench. We had a great trip, saw gators and many birds and I certainly would recommend this!

Champagne's Cajun Swamp tours is a short drive from Lafayette, Louisiana.The tour was very inexpensive and lasted about two hours. Our guide Mr. Guy LeBlanc was very knowledgeable about the plant and animal life of the area. We saw many gators and various types of birds on the lake and its bayous. There were two types of trees in the lake. One had bark as hard as a rock and the other had bark as soft as air. This was a great way to spend a fall afternoon
