“The air boat ride is worth the $50”

McGee's Landing - Atchafalaya Basin Swamp Tours
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

We intended to take the pontoon boat ride, which I'm sure is lovely, but arrived and the speedier air boat was just calling our names! You need a minimum of 3 people and it's $50 a person but joly moly is it worth it! We raced out to the swamp and slowed down a bit to go through all the foliage. The guide stopped a couple of times to show us some aligators and nutria rats and talk about the types of trees we were seeing. It was so cool!! Then we raced around under the highways and around a bit more. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Took a private tour last week. If you don't mind the cost this is the way to go. We saw lots of gators and other critters. Some big guys, 12ft range all the way down to last year and this years hatch. Our guide was extremely nice and took his time showing us around.

The bar and restaurant was nice and the bathrooms were clean.

We booked a private fan boat tour and had Captain Perry. It was a fantastic, surreal and beautiful day. We really wanted to see wildlife, and he brought us to an osprey nest and found some amazing alligators, even a nest of babies. I would highly recommend this tour. The lady running the restaurant was really, really nice, but so slow we ended up giving up and leaving (and there weren't many people there). If you do want to eat there, leave yourself plenty of time.

A great adventure. Food, live music and a great 2 hour tour visiting the gators. John, our captain, was a delight and full of knowledge. Definitely worth the trip!

They offer a number of options, we did the 20 bucks 1,5 hours organized swamp tour. The guide was very friendly and a real cajun... very knowledgable and a good host. We saw everything we wanted to see and it was a good experience.
Service at the reataurant was a bit slow and the portion sizes smaller than expected, but the menu had a lot of variety and offered all local favourites.
