I booked this tour based on previous reviews and it did not disappoint. The tour guide provided basic as well as the kind of information that only someone who lives in the area or who did his research to e knowledgeable. The boat was spacious with adequate seating. The tour was just long enough to be enjoyable.
I questioned my wife about this tour when she booked it because we were traveling with our 9 and 16 year old grandsons. From start to finish it was excellent. The swamp tour was one of the best tours we ever been on.
My husband and I enjoyed tooling along in the bayous, spotting alligators and watching them jump for marshmallows (though we thought marshmallows might not be the best diet for their ongoing health). The boat was not crowded, which was pleasant. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable, and had a baby alligator with him that was a rescue, which was interesting. At the beginning of the ride when many boats were taking off at once, we had trouble hearing our tour guide.
This tour is great! It picks you up and drops you off at a central location in NOLA. The tour guide was friendly and personable. He made sure we saw many alligators. He even gave us the opportunity to hold a baby alligator! The boat was covered so the harsh sun did not overwhelm us and we felt safe the entire time. We had a great time. I definitely recommend this tour!
The bus ride out to the swamp was about 30 minutes and was comfortable. We waited 15 minutes on a dock before they let us board the boat. I'm very happy we did this tour vs the very loud air boats. This was a nice peaceful boat ride which gave you time to really sit back, enjoy the local radio music, tour narration, and enjoy the sites. We saw lots of alligators which was enjoyable as they swam right up to the boat. They had a baby alligator for everyone to hold on the boat if you wanted. Our tour guide wasn't very personable, but did a good job explaining the area and history. I wish this tour left at a different time then the air boats on the same dock because it was pretty annoying when they whizzed by with their large waves and spray. Overall it was an enjoyable morning.
