“Don't miss it!”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

I had been to NOLA several times before I gave this a try. Our guide was hugely entertaining, especially when he hollered "Ici!" (here!) and about six alligators came swimming to our boat. He would toss marshmallows into the air and the gators would jump out to catch them. He actually gave a marshmallow to one gator in his teeth!

“Learnin about the bayou”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Swamp tour on a pontoon boat next to Bayou Signette State Park in Westwego, La. . Very nice leisurely tour of the Bayou with a fun and knowledgeable captain. 2 + hours of touring with plenty of gators,birds,flowers and all you might expect to see in the Bayou.
Well worthwhile of your time and dollar

“Great swamp tour at a great price that's close by New Orleans!”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

This swamp tour was the highlight of our short trip to New Orleans! We received a fantastic tour from a local who knows the area well. Extremely educational both visually and verbally. We learned about the effect of the flooding in this area too. The youngest member of our family was nervous about getting way too close to an alligator so didn't want a tour in a small boat where we could be eye-to-eye with an alligator. This vessel was large, up higher off the water, and very stable for the entire 2-hr. cruise so we all felt very safe. We all loved it! We saw all kinds of wildlife including birds, alligators, and turtles along with amazing plants and trees. The location is close to New Orleans, about a 15-20 minute drive southwest of the downtown riverfront. They offer transportation too if you don't have a car or don't want to drive. The price is excellent. Kids and seniors even receive a discount when you let them know. So glad we picked this swamp tour!
