It was my boyfriend's first trip to New Orleans and I wanted him to see the highlights. We had a really knowledgeable guide who was well-versed in the invasive species aspect of the organisms in the swamp and bayou. I am a high school environmental science teacher so I got great information as well as pictures for my class. The trip was amazing! We saw several alligators ( Our guide fed them marshmallows.) Several different types of turtles, egrets, and a blue heron. I got to hold a small alligator as well. We had a great time and the boyfriend was very pleased with the trip!
Had a wonderful relaxing trip. Saw a few gators, an owl and a few other animals. I would recommending doing this at least once in your life especially if your not from this part of town.
REALLY enjoyed this trip, I think it was the highlight of my stay in the New Orleans area!
November was a perfect time of the year for this tour.
We were able to see plenty of alligators in all sizes and holding a little one was very fun.
The guide was great and we got plenty of good camera shots.
A great getaway from the hustle of Bourbon Street... The bayou is incredible and not to be missed. We saw live alligators, egrets, turtles, beautiful trees teeming with Spanish moss...as we glided along the bayou by open air boat. The guide was very friendly and surprised us later when he said we could all hold a baby alligator for photo ops! Awesome
Enjoyable tour. Well worth the price. Nice bus ride, Boat guide was very informative and friendly.
This was our favorite tour. The guide was funny and very knowledgable. LOVED IT.
This was a well-organised and enjoyable tour with plenty of information and good humour. A great extension to a stay in a wonderful city.
As always, it was unbearably hot in New Orleans in July, but we expected that. What we did not expect was how cool and comfortable it was when we took the Bayou Swamp Tour. Friends (who never took this tour) warned us about how humid and buggy it would be. They couldn't have been more mistaken! As we floated down the swamp we were protected from the sun, not only by the covering on the boat, but by a canopy of lush vegetation. And not one bug in sight! It was absolutely beautiful and we were treated to all types of wildlife. Of course there were dozens of alligators, but there were also birds and other reptiles along the way. Our guide, Capt. Brent, was not only funny but extremely knowledgable about the eco system, vegetation, waterways, and wildlife. Not only was this tour breathtakingly beautiful, but we learned so much about the Louisiana bayou that we never knew before. On board was a baby alligator and we were given the opportunity to handle him and take photos. What a bonus! I would highly recommend this tour and wouldn't hesitate to go again!
The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Tour was great! My group loved holding the baby gator!!
We thought this tour was brilliant. The boat was not over crowded, the captin had lots of knowledge and we saw loads of alligators. I would highly recommened this tour.
