I wanted to go on an air boat but told they were noisy so took the small boat (about 10 people max) instead. Our guide was wonderful. I too was a bit surprised about the marshmallows, but hey the alligators weren't complaining. Also got to see a family of wild pigs. I too thought we might have gone in a bit deeper into the swamp but we all did enjoy the trip. The highlight would be our captain actually kissing the top of the snout of Brutus. He did it twice cuz the cameras missed the first time. He was very informative and friendly. The driver in the van that took us to the swamp was also a real character. Had a wonderful voice and lots of information given.

Comfortable covered boat; breezes were cooling on a super hot day. Capt James was very informative, responsive to questions, and obviously a friend to many alligators. Not sure about tossing them marshmallows however! Gators loved them.

Seems one of the must tours in NO. We took the regular boat as the air boat doesn't allow small children.
First you boat along a large river, then you enter small canals. Main attraction are alligators. Plenty of them swimming around. They will swim to boat and captain will feed them marshmellows into the open mouth. He even will take them by the tail and throw back into water. Great for kids.

if its your thing to go into the real wild side of New Orleans, then this is the thing for you. picked up in the city, driven out to the swamp lands, and then given a full tour of the swamps. i found the guide to be very experienced and of very good humour. to see "gaters" and wild bour up close is amazing!!!!

This was a great tour however I thought we would be travelling farther into the bayou than we did. I also had difficulties with the staff feeding the alligators "marshmallows". They are not good for humans, so I would think not good for alligators and racoons.
