From start to finish, I had a great time! Kim, the bus driver, was a wonderful historian of the New Orleans area. She was entertaining and informative; I learned more from the bus ride than I might have from a formal tour - the neighborhoods, the effects of Katrina, the architecture, and more. On the return bus ride, she educated us to the best places to get good New Orleans cooking - which proved helpful later that evening. While on the bayou, Captain Emmett similarly was a spectacular guide. We were able to see all sorts of wildlife close up (gators, wild boar, birds) as well as learn about the swamp, its history and the foliage specific to it - usages, properties, identifying features. I was able to take some great pictures! I would definitely encourage anyone going to New Orleans to take advantage of this swamp tour!
Our swamp tour was fantastic! Lots of gators, a boar, a few snakes, and 2 raccoons. Our tour guide, captain Everett was incredibly knowledgeable, and informative. The weather was perfect, the ride was great, and just overall a fantastic tour and experience! Everett had a charming personality, with a vast amount of information. We would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wanted to do this tour. The only thing my husband was a little disappointed, was that he couldn't feed marshmallows to an alligator, but other then that, was fantastic!
This is a very well organized tour company. They picked us up on time started the tour on time it lasted exactly 2 hours and we were right back at our hotel on time. Very efficient staff.
Now if your primary reason is to see alligators, then this is the tour for you. They feed the alligators from the boat so they’ve learned to swim right up to the boat for food. At the very end of the tour there are several wild hogs that almost jump into the boat to get to the food.
Since I'm an avid birder, I was also interested in finding birds to photograph. Captain Tom saw a Little Blue Heron and called it a Poodoo. Then he saw a Green Heron and called it a Whistling Duck. He got a quite annoyed at me when I tried to correct him. (And Tom, don't call it a "White Egret" since there are three egret species that are white and that's not the correct name for any of them.)
I'd just say that once you've seen the first 5 alligators, the next 5 don't hold as much interest. But it was indeed quite a good tour. We really liked our bus driver, Allen.
The tour guide talked so much during our first and only encounter with an alligator, we must have spent 45 minutes there that other tours that left after us caught up with us and went on with the tour while we were still there listening to the tour guide go on and on about alligators. The Cajun village was supposed to be part of the tour but we never got to see it but the second boat that was part of our tour were able to. Quite disappointing!
This tour was great. We were picked up for the tour at our hotel, then transferred to a bigger bus. The trip to the swamp was about 45 minutes and the driver told us about interesting facts about the areas we rode through. We crossed Lake Pontchartrain, which is huge. Upon arrival at the swamp you check in, are given an armband and a chance to buy snacks and use the restroom before the tour begins. The boat held about 20 people and we sped down the river before going into the swamp. The wind made it quite chilly as the air temp was only in the low 60s, but once we’re slowed down it wasn’t as cold. We saw wild boar, alligators, herons, egrets, turtles and raccoons. The tour guides know exactly where to go to see wildlife. The swamp itself is very beautiful and there are many photo opportunities. The tour itself was about 2 hours. Highly recommended!
