This was absolutely the highlight of our trip to New Orleans! The 45 bus ride to the bayou was great because the wonderful bus driver who's name I can't remember but he was an older gentleman who had grown up in NOLA and had a great sense of humor spent the time telling us stories about the history of NOLA, the stories of Hurricane Katrina, and some local jokes. Then the tour itself was utterly fantastic. Our tour guide, Lil Lou, knew the bayou inside and out -- being part of a long line of families who had lived on the bayou and depended on it for their livelihoods. He showed us not just alligators, but birds, turtles, and have us incredible background and information about all of them. We also got to hold a baby alligator -- which was itself an incredible experience. This tour is great for ALL ages. We went with our 12-year old son and this was his favorite part of the trip too -- tied for first with the French Quarter Segway Tour -- also run by Viator. Can't recommend this tour enough!

My husband and I took this tour with our two teenage daughters. The bus ride host was great-I do not remember his name, but he shared interesting historical information with us the whole way to Jan Lafitte park. Our swamp tour guide was Lil Lou and he took us out on the Lil Cajun pontoon boat. Lil Lou was the absolute best tour guide we could have asked for. He was knowledgable about the bayou, the history of the area and the wild life. And he delivered all information in a kind and humorous way. He was simply awesome. Definitely would recommend the pontoon boat tour over the air boat ride. The airboat ride is fast, but very, very loud and in my opinion, probably scares away the wildlife.

Took a 13 person business group and everyone absolutely loved it! The boat guide was entertaining and informative and the trip over and back was filled with interesting NOLA facts and restaurant tips from the bus guide.
