Awesome ride, very knowledgeable guide, took us deep into the bayous and caught a 1.5 yoa baby gator and took us within about 3 feet of an 11.5 foot alligator. Would do it again for longer periods of time.

It was a lovely warm sunny day but dress for a windy great ride on the airboat. Both guides as well as the van driver were very informative. We got to see several alligators sunning as well as a well preserved and historic plantation. Two different tours at a good price.

Although it was freezing cold we really enjoyed the tour. Unfortunately the gators had buried themselves in the mud to keep warm so we didn't to see any, but our guide was excellent, really informative and I could have happily listened to his stories all day!

The tour manager was accommodating speaking multiple languages and shared great history during the drive out to the plantation and back. The bayou tour was also informative and and fun. One highlight was the old school pharmacist who was at the plantation. I think he's only there on Fridays so if you can go that day I'd suggest it.

Good fun, the plantation tour was a little dry, but interesting nonetheless, the airboat swamp tour was awesome, probably the best thing I did whilst in New Orleans. The guide was lovely and full of information :)

This tour is the best!! We went on the fast 6 passenger airboat. The guide took us places we never thought we'd fit down. He was extremely knowledgeagle and so very friendly and funny.
This is one tour you must take if your visiting New Orleans. We loved it so much were coming back to do it again!!

What a wonderful experience. The airboat trip was fantastic. We also thought the tour of the plantation was very enlightening.

Out of New Orleans and we saw gators and more gator. This was a great tour with a good guide and the airboat is just the best. If y9u are down here and do not do this you must already be from the south.

Airboat guide and ride were great, bayou was beautiful, he showed us some amazing animals and sites.
Plantation tour was weak. Our guide was poorly prepared, uninterested, grew annoyed when people asked questions. The property we visited was historically important (site of trials for slave rebellion) yet this portion of its history was only addressed secondarily.
