After a couple of days in the city itself, it was nice to get out of town about a 45 minute drive to tour the swamp. The cypress trees are amazing! The gators were hiding during our visit, but we did see wild boar, beautiful blue herons, egrits.
A lovely way to spend an afternoon.

What a wonderful trip. On the way our bus driver kept us amused and informed and once there we met our fabulous guide. He was bought up in the area and was very respectful of the swamp. Not only did we have a close encounter with the alligators we also saw snapping turtles, snakes, birds, pigs. We also learnt about the environment of the swamp
too. The smaller boat with a cover gave everyone a great view and kept us a little cooler. Just perfect loved drifting through the bayeux.

Great for those who can't drive the guide on the boat was amazing, really managed to get some terrific shots with my Canon camera, very different and special from the other swamp tours.

Good tour but overpriced. Saw a lot of alligators but nothing else. The tour should be 1 hour for maybe $30.

This was so amazing!!!!! We really enjoyed our tour. The guide was friendly and very knowledgeble.
i would recommend tying your hair back and wearing sunblock. The boat really picks up speed, so a jacket is nice idea. The hotel pick up was tricky though. Be sure to call several days ahead to make sure you're on the list for hotel pick up.

Entertaining tour. Bus pickup was efficient, and the guide told us stories and history all the way out to the swamp. Safe boat, good guide. I'd recommend this company.

This was a great tour that took us both out on the Pearl River and into the backwater bayous. We loved seeing the alligators, boars, and raccoon, as well as the herons and egrets. There was plenty of time to stop for pictures and the boat felt safe.

The Captain was very informative about the swamp, and knew where all the critters were hiding. The ride was fun, and I recommend it to everyone.

Beautiful trip and excellent and friendly guides. An activity not to be missed while on a new orleans trip.
Only suggested improvement is the duration of the trip which can be lengthened.
