Guide wasn't the most knowledgeable about the boat and everything but was all around a blast still and we had an excellent time with the alligators. The guide nearly got one on the boat with some chicken but alligator had already had his full for the day and looked fat as hell.

My niece and I loved this tour. The guide was really nice, and even let us hold his pet, Amy. He was very informative about the swamps and talked with us about conservation, preservation, and history of the swamps. We saw lots of gators, turtles and birds. The fast part of the ride was really fun. We signed up for the six seater, which was very fun!

My wife and I loved our tour of the swamp. We saw tons of gators (in the water and on land) a really cool owl, and fish were jumping all over the place. Our captain made the trip, he would run the boat then stop and talk about what we were seeing. We opted for the hotel pick up, tickets for two was $150, absolutely worth it. We went on several tours in NOLA and ate at some of the better restaurants, but this was the highlight of our five day trip. We were in a larger boat, but I don't think the boat size matters - the scenery is amazing. I packed a back pack with water and snacks, but they do sell those things on site.

My sisters and I took one of the small boat tours. The boats hold 6-8 passengers but we were pleasantly surprised when our captain told us we'd be having a private tour since the other people who had also been assigend to our boat couldn't make it. Our captain, Little Lou, was great. Very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. You could tell he really loves and respects the swamp and everything in it. The swamp was beautiful. We saw a lot of alligators and other wildlife. The highlight was meeting Boudreaux and Tibideaux, two baby alligators that we were allowed to hold. Amazing creatures! Our boat broke down about 3/4 of the way through the tour but no worries, Little Lou called for back-up. While we waited for the new boat we continued moving through the swamp carried along by its natural current. All part of the adventure as far as we were concerned. Thanks for a great experience!

Book direct to get the best price and choose the small boat for a more personal tour. Our guide was great and brought a baby alligator on board for us to hold. We got to see lots and the ride at speed was a thrill. They even pick you up and drop you back to your hotel or where ever else you want to go at the end of the day.
