Not just beautiful but an awsome ride! Captain Paul's knowledge and great personality made it perfect!!!
We were picked up from the hotel and the driver gave us a wonderful history on New Orleans. I wish I could remember her name but she was excellent. The weather wasn't good when we went, cold and overcast but the boat operator, Alan, was very friendly and informative. We saw a little wildlife. Alan spotted an owl and alligator and got us up close and personal with them. I highly recommend this tour. We will definitely use them again on our return trip.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. The van ride to the swamp was great- we were picked up at the hotel right on time. Our driver Dylan knew so much about New Orleans and told us about the history of the area and also shared such great stories about himself. It's nice to have access to a local who can give great tips about where else to go in the city and to give insight about what it's like to live and work in New Orleans. Once we got to the Swamp, we were swiftly led to a boat and the trip began. It was so exciting--the boats can really move through the swamp lanes. We got to hold a baby alligator and we also saw five of them in the wild. Our boat pilot Allen was such a skilled driver...even at high speeds we all felt safe. It's amazing what he knew about all of the birds and plants and alligators. He took the time to stop in several places to let us get the feel for the swamp and to hear him tell his Cajun tales! Very interesting and great fun! Dress warmly! Dylan had raincoats to lend to us which really helped cut the wind.
Absolutely wonderful! We lucked out with the small-group tour instead of the larger group!
Awesome trip!! Shuttle bus was right on time for our hotel pick-up, the driver was full of information on facts about New Orleans and the Bayou. Although our trip was on the 3rd of January (pretty cold), we still saw some alligators. Our air-boat captain was very funny and full of interesting facts about the Bayou, and seemed to know all the "Secret" spots for alligators and wildlife. I took my 16 year old son (you know how hard they can be to entertain!) and he had a blast. I look forward to returning in the future during the summer, when the water warms up and do it all again. Everyone was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. I would recommend this trip to anyone that plans to visit the area.
The definite highlight of our trip to New Orleans. We went on airboat number 1 with Steve - great fun and very informative. Thank you very much!!! Also, our driver of the bus from our hotel to the swamps, Diane, with Tours with Isobelle was marvellous!!! So knowledgeable about the history - she made me feel very apologetic for my country's behavior to the USA in the early 1800s!!!! (England)
The tour was absolutely amazing!! One of my favorite memories from NOLA.
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! BEST TOUR I HAVE EVER TAKEN ANYWHERE! WONDERFUL, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ACCOMODATING VAN DRIVER AND AN ENTERTAINING AND FUN AIRBOAT OPERATOR! LOVED THE BOAT SPEED, THE SCENERY IN THE SWAMP AND THE ALLIGATORS...MAXINE AND REMAX!!
Amazing time! I was sad the weather was 20 degrees below average, but us Oregonians are used to it. Our guide was awesome, and we all learned a lot from him. We did the 6 person tour, and enjoyed it very much
It was a wonderful trip. It was cold that day and cold when we traveled, but still well worth it. I have a lot of jealous friends!
Worth wcery single cent. Learned a lot and the scenery was amazing. Including the alligators!!!!!
This is a must if you are going to New Orleans! The driver was obviously passionate about the Bayou and the surrounding environment and communicated to us .A beautiful, peaceful place.
The driver from Isabelle's tours provided a really interesting commentary on the way to the Bayou.
