I gotta tell you. I was a bit skeptical and so was my husband. But man, was this a great decision. We saw over a dozen alligators and they came right up to the boat. Not to mention our guide literally got out of the boat to HAND FEED the biggest alligators! Wow what a great ride!
We had the best time on this tour. Our guide Lou, made it even more fun. Learned a lot, laughed a lot, just an overall great time.
This tour was so fun! The tour guide was great and we got to see a lot of aligators.
We had a wonderful time. Our guide and his son were great. We would highly recommend it.
We had such a great time. We loved our guide. He was charming and informative. We loved seeing the beauty of the bayou and seeing the alligators in their natural habitat. Lots of fun!
We were very happy with our tour and look forward to using Viator in the future. We enjoyed learning about the history of New Orleans on our bus ride to the boat from our tour guide.
Great to see alligators in their natural habitat. Holding live baby alligators was also a great experience for our 12 year old
Louis, was an EXCELLENT guide for the swamp tour, and Marilyn, who accompanied us on the bus and gave us lots of historical information, was very good as well. But the boat tour was the best and imparted a real flavor of the lifestyle and history of the area we had foreign guests with us as well and they understood and enjoyed much of the tour too.
Very informative and educational. Really learned a lot about wildlife and waterways of the Louisiana Bayous.
This was the one thing we HAD to do when in New Orleans. It was worth every cent!! The guide was so entertaining and informative and you really get up close and personal with the swamp wildlife. This one day made the trip complete.
Fantastic bayou tour. Very knowledgeable and friendly captain. Best part of our visit to New Orleans area. It was HOT! Keep hydrated as you can't take a dip with the gators.
Would go again! Beautiful area!! Lil' Lou was a great tour guide. Tour was relaxing. Had fun with the alligator.
One of the highlights of our trip to NOLA. The guide was great and very funny and we loved seeing the alligators in the wild.
The tour was fantastic! The bus ride out was great and I really liked hearing the history of the City. The swamp tour guide Captain Lou was very knowledgeable and easy going. He made every effort to point out different sights and animals. Ken the bus driver for the return trip was great. He made me smile and get involved in the conversation. His knowledge about the local places to eat was very helpful. Would recommend this tour to others for sure.
Wonderful tour!! Of course, it was our Captain Lou who made this tour both fun and a nature-beautiful experience. Lou was born in the swamps and had the bayou accent to prove it! He was the real deal - and his slow-moving and wonderfully narrated tour gave us many alligator sightings. And Captain Lou made sure to get the alligators right up to the boat - so they could receive lunch and we got tons of great pictures. There were only 9 of us on the boat and I would highly recommend this tour!!
Great fun! Relaxing, beautiful and much quieter than airboats.I highly recommend this.
The owner/guide on the swamp boat was WONDERFUL. Very knowledgeable and knew the swamps. I would recommend this tour.
He had a baby alligator on board for anyone to hold or take pictures with. The kids on the boat loved it.
We had a great tour guide who provided us an excellent experience. There were a lot of gators around and the scenery was just wonderful.
This event made my Vacation worth while!!!!!!!!!!! Awesome Guide, after 18 years of marriage I have finally found something my husband is afraid of. confined spaces with an alligator A must SEE
