Great tour -- the small airboat was perfect for our group of three. We had another family of 3 join us, and it never felt crowded. Our guide, Rennan, was personable and knowledgeable about the swamp and its animals without being overbearing. He knew the swamp in and out and took us to secluded sections of the bayou. We were the only boat there and only saw other boats when we left/returned to the dock!
The transportation from the French Quarter was easy -- we stayed at an AirBnB but picked a hotel from their pickup/drop-off points that was closeby and it worked out well.
The driver had a little tour of the city as we picked up other guests and made our way to the swamp.
Highly recommend this tour over other larger boats that are impersonal and touristy.
This was one of the best experiences of my life! It was hauntingly beautiful and so cool to see the alligators, we even got to hold a baby! Our tour guide Steve was absolutely amazing! So knowledgeable and fun. We went in the morning and I highly suggest it. It and #39;s cooler and you and #39;ll see more gators.
The trip was great, but I was REALLY IRRITATED to find out that VIATOR charged me a full 29 more than had I bought tickets down there Everyone else paid 95 each. I am going to go online to notify neighbors and friends that Viator does this.
Great tour, was the highlight of our trip to New Orleans. Captain Sam was great!
The tour was great - Viator had everything set up and was very professional. Pick up was exactly on time - ride out to the boat was entertaining and the boat was great. Definitely better to go w/ the small boat vs the ones that hold 20 or so. Our Capt. was funny and nice and we saw a lot of gators as well as some beautiful parts of the swamp - Would Definitely Recommend!
Guide was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Speeding across the lake was a highlight. Time spent in the bayou was informative and unique
Our guide was so amazing, loved our trip learned so much about the swamps and the animals who live there. Holding the alligator was the best part of our whole New Orleans adventure and feeding the 12 foot gator marshmellow will be a memory we will never forget. Great job to all of you and for what you are doing.
We really enjoyed this. Saw lots of gators and the airboat ride is really fun. Our guide was great, he obviously knew the bayous like the back of his hand. It was a beautiful and fun tour.
We had a spectacular time, all because of our guide Justin. He was very knowledge, found several alligators for us to see. Told us a lot about the area, and knew answers to all of our questions. He made it fun. I would definitely recommend this tour again.
We had great weather and were able to see different alligators and areas of the swap. I was very impressed with the knowledge of our swap boat guide. He explained the environmental challenges facing the swamp/marshlands and that it is possible that these areas will be lost.
It was very enjoyable.
Driver from hotel to airboat was pleasant and friendly. Our airboat tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept everyone engaged. I would recommend to others.
Great tour and great fun! Our bus driver was on time and educational. Our boat guide was excellent, he was knowledgeable about the swamp and he seem to truly care about the wildlife that we encountered. Highly recommend!

This was a fun an educational tour. The company was great in communicating with us and their equipment and personnel were top notch. From the moment we were picked up at the hotel to the drop off back was smooth. Our tour guide was a local person with tons of knowledge about the habitat and the animals. The boats are easy to step on a off so people of all ages can do the tour. Hearing protection is provided so the only thing to bring is a good pair of sunglasses and maybe some sunblock. I highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic and the highlight of our trip. It was just beautiful and we saw tons of gators!
I sure wish I could recall our guide's name as he was fantastic! Very informative and clearly has passion for the swamps and the animals in it. Would definitely recommend it!
The gentleman who took us on the tour I can't remember his name...we were boat 9 at 2 pm that day was fantastic. The tour was super fun and our shuttle driver, Joseph, was wonderful, too. He had a group of, frankly, obnoxious people from LA in the van and he handled them very professionally.
The small boat allowed for a more personal experience. Our guide Jaye was awesome
Wow! Fantastic tour. So glad that we were on a smaller airboat. We were able to go deep into small inlets where larger airboats could not go. Saw lots of gators. Great captain.
Lots of fun, my husband and I had a blast. I'd advise taking the smaller airboat as they can get you into the swamp and go faster. Also it does get chilly and loud, so a coat and use the ear protectors, especially on the rear seat. The guide was a blast! Lot's of stories and made this a great experience with stories and history of the bayou and New Orleans area. Even had a chance to hold a baby alligator. Well worth the money!
