Our guide, Jason, was informative and passionate. He knew how to find the gators! A friend had been on another tour a couple of weeks ago and didn't see any!
Captain Joey was a riot! The scenary was gorgeous and we learned a lot. We did see a few alligators (November), a blue heron, many turtles and some large fish! Even the bus driver was part of the tour and made the 20 minute ride very enjoyable. I have been on this tour twice and will go again!
The tour was great. If we want to see more gators we'll need to come back during the Spring or Summer.
Great experience! The guide was excellent and made it easy for everyone to see the animals. Without him, this could have been a dull trip. The bus driver gave us an interesting lecture on New Orleans and the damage caused by Katrina. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more about Louisiana wetands.
The tour was amazing. Our guides were excellent. The tour was everything as advertised and more. Will recommend this tour to everyone who is planning a trip to New Orleans.
Just what I had hoped for, nature in the wild. No staged wildlife and great tour guide. It was cool the day we toured, but we still saw several aligators, turtles, and water foul. The boat is spaceous and comfortable. Plenty of room to roam around and get photos.Family friendly and well organized. The bus ride out to the swamp was comfortable, and even came with a guide as well. I would highly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour and Captain Jason knew exactly where the gators would be, I would thoroughly recommend this tour it was very enjoyable and informative.
this was a great tour. loved it. the tour guide on the boat was really personable and made the cruse fun
We saw big alligators, touched a baby alligator. Tour guider is very friendly
Great tour. Guide was fab! Did get to see a few alligators. Definitely recommended.
This trip was awesome! I'm a home based travel agent so I came to New Orleans to sample the atmosphere and tours so I can have first hand knowledge of "things to do" when my clients ask for suggestions on excursions. I took lots of pictures and video aboard the boat and our guide was very patient.
We had a great time and saw lots of gators. The captain was really enjoyable to listen to.
It was great, the guide was really informative. The bus driver made the trip there and back lots of fun. Would do it again, and I recommend the tour to every one.
Tour was great--easy to get to and a good respite from the heat. Our tour guide was Jason and he was knowledgable and funny. Well worth the short trip out of the city.
Well organised, very knowledgeable bus driver and swamp boat captain a really good value for money.
Good fun, held a baby gator, the guide on the actual boat was very funny
This was a terrific tour, I took my adult children and 3 grandchildren. What a true experience for the family. As a travel consultant, I would recommend this for my clients with families, the adventure was an exciting one.
Bus ride from NO was pleasant. The driver was very nice. Boat tour was even better than expected. The guide has been conducting tours for 20 years and was still enthusiastic about all the sights and "back stories". Although it was a very hot day, the covered boat and a lot of trees kept the tour reasonably comfortable. Two grandmothers and an 8 and 11 year old all enjoyed it very much.
We had a great guide who told us very informative and interesting stories about the swamp. He answered also all of our questions.
What I really liked was the responsible acting on the bayou. (no marshmellows for the aligators e.g.)
Highly recommended. Beautiful.
This tour was awesome! We saw several alligators, pigs, birds, and other wildlife. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. I highly recommend this tour.
