As a travel consultant I am always looking for something a little different when I am out experiencing the world.
This tour was perfect... our boat handled about 28 people and we were able to have a guide who was an knowledgeable
expert of the swamplands. The scenery was magnificent and the thrill when he opened up in the waters for a speed ride
was lots of fun. We saw wildlife and alligators along the way in a very peaceful and fun environment. Highly recommend
Although it was too cold to see too many alligators, our guide Stephen was great. He even brought his pet alligator with him so we could hold him. SO cute! It was still a beautiful day and really fun to learn about alligators!
Great experience! This was the favorite tour of our vacation to Louisiana! Our tour guide was fun and knowledgeable - he provided interesting stories about life in the swamps/bayous. We were able to hold an alligator too! But most of all, I was surprised at how beautiful the scenery was - not something I would have expected!
We took the large airboat . Our guide was excellent. Everyone had a chance to hold an alligator.
AMAZING TOUR!!!! Our guide was fantastic, we got to see the gators and he told us all about them.
It was so beautiful to see the swamps and all the trees there. The highlight in our tour was when our guide jumped into the water with 3 gators in it and started to play with them and feed the marshmallows!!!
Well besides the nasty storm that came through prior, was very cool. There was a delay by about 2 hours.
This is a must do when you are in New Orleans! We enjoyed a fun ride on the airboat. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. He stopped the boat on a marshy bank and stepped out. Several alligators cruised up silently with their mouths open. All I could think about was the guide's bare ankles so close to the alligators' jaws. The guide didn't seem fazed at all, but we wondered what we would have done if one of them grabbed him and pulled him into the water. I guess they knew he was going to feed them, so they behaved nicely. On a happy note, we got to hold a baby alligator, and we loved that!
Our guide was absolutely phenomenal. He made the experience for us one that we will never forget and one of the best parts of our trip.
My 12 yo daughter and myself had a wonderful time on our air boat ride in the swamp. We say alligators, the guide fed some, picked one up, petted one and brought a baby into the boat that we all got the opportunity to hold. We were in a larger boat. It wasn't too far from New Orleans, but I was happy to have the transportation provided.
It was absolutely wonderful. Our guide was so much fun and provided us with much entertainment and amazement. We will take this every time we come to New Orleans. It definitely rates a 5 star.
We were a group of six in the big boat and we had an amazing time. We postponed our initial time until later in the afternoon due to rain without any problem and then had beautiful weather. Our airboat driver was wonderful and the length of time in the boat felt neither too long nor too short. We recommend doing the round trip bus ride just to make things easier. Highly recommended.
A member in our party is handicapped and they were very misleading on how easily accessible the boat was from the dock. Once we made it to the boat the ride was a lot fun and guide was very knowledgable.
Such a great experience. Well organized and always on time. We had a great time. Highly recommended.
Very fun! We think the Captain was Sam? We were on a smaller boat as planned. Just our family of five were on it. The ride was exciting. We wore ear covers to protect our ears from the loud roar of the motor. We did see alligators and beautiful swamp areas. We got to hold a three year old alligator named Darth-Gator. It rained on us but did not spoil our experience. This was our first swamp tour. Our grandson loved it. Thank you for the experience.
This tour provided what it promised. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. He made everyone part of the experience. Thanks George and Slater!
My husband and I truly enjoyed our time. Cpt. Sam was very knowledgeable and had the greatest patience with any questions asked by the little ones on the tour. Everything was timed perfectly and everyone was very pleasant.
we were very lucky on our boat ride, we saw the biggest aligator along with a lot of others thru out the ride.
a great time had by us, weather, driver, sights..
The boat driver (Allan) and the event itself were fantastic. The only thing that could improve is the timing or lunch. 10:45 to app. 3-4 pm getting back downtown is a stretch.
Excellent had so much fun tour guide was great ...I wanna go again ...
This was the highlight of our trip. Myself and three friends were delighted by the tour and guide, "Captain Sam" was great. The weather was spectacular as we rode through the bayou seeing alligators, turtles and nature. Captain Sam was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this trip.
