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.
It was very informative. relaxed and we very much enjoyed the stories of our guide.
Delighted we did Swamp tour while in New Orleans. The Pilot was very friendly and informative. It was a great experience.
We loved our bayou visit. Saw lots of wildlife, especially young gators and learned a lot from our guide. I highly recommend this tour!
The staff were all friendly and helpful to a fault. I felt the cost was reasonable, everything was well scheduled without undue delays and they delivered exactly what was promised. And how could you go wrong with the beautiful and peacefull settings you can only find with Alligators, Snakes, Turtles and Incredible Foilage all wrapped together.
We had a great time, and our tour guide was entertaining, educational, and so funny! We saw a lot of gators and turtles, and got to hold a baby alligator toward the end of the ride. We have no regrets about booking this tour, and recommend it to anyone who wants a little fun in the swamp.
Young man that was tour guide was very, very nice and humorous. Knew the swamps very well and was very informative.
The swamp and bayou tour was amazing! We saw so many alligators (some of them really large), lots of heron, turtles. Our favorite part was holding the baby gator - soooo soft! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting the New Orleans area. Besides, it's good to get out in the country away from the city.
Such fun! The gators were out but because of the cool weather they were not very active. I would recommend taking this tour on a warm, sunny day.
great experience ,kids loved it, even though it wasn't gator season we still saw some.
Great experience! Our guide Jason was amazing at spotting the hiding alligators. Boat ride was scenic and smooth and educational. Best of all was the chance to hold the baby alligator at the end- one of a kind! Would definitely do it again.
Nice ride in the boat. Well informed and pleasant drivers/tourguide in bus and boat
Everything was like clockwork, including the transfers to the boat, which let us see some of the outlying neighborhoods. The tour guide/boat captain was funny and had a great eye to let us see all kinds of wildlife. We ended up seeing about 8 alligators, including a 12 foot long one that came right up to the boat. My kids loved getting to hold an alligator. It is great to get out of the French Quarter, see some of how locals live, and see some local wildlife.
