We enjoyed the tour immensely. Seeing bald eagles and blue herons were the highlight for me, but I'm a bird nut. My spouse enjoyed the alligator and wild boar the most.

My adult daughter and I very much enjoyed our swamp tour. The captain was funny and knowledgeable and everyone on the boat seemed to be having a great time! We spent eight days in New Orleans and having one of those days out in the swamp made for a nice change of pace. Thank you!

Amazing trip out to the swamp - a great break from the madness of New Orleans. Saw lots of animals - baby gator, wild pig, turtles, raccoons and lots of birds. Highly recommended!

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.
