We had a great time. Our guide had a great personality and extremely knowledgeable. We saw gators, wild boar and wild raccoons. My husband's favorite tour.
Really enjoyed this trip. The Bayou was just as I has imagined, eerily beautiful although not blue. Our guide was very informative and funny. We saw alligators and pigs
Great tour! There was a cold front, so we unfortunately did not see any gators, but Captain Bishop tried so hard to find them for us! His expert commentary made the ride so interesting and so much fun! If ever I visit in warmer weather I would absolutely do this tour again and hope for the same captain! He was awesome!
Great trip! Transportation was on time and the experience was amazing! I highly recommend this trip!
this was just so much fun! they don't tell you that the animals come right up to the boat.......you get splashed! I loved this tour!!!
The only disappointment was that the Big crocodiles had already started hibernation. Did see some smaller ones maybe one footers. Would recommend taking this tour during warmer weather.

I have always wanted to do a swamp tour and this did not disappoint. Had such an incredible time and would do it all over again.
Beautiful scenery. The tour guide was wonderful and had lots of expertise. We saw alligators, turtles, raccoons and are favorite were
the wild pigs. It was a fun and memorable tour!
We had an amazing time on this tour. Captain Teddy was a blast. He was Knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend the tour.
The facilities were a bit lacking. I see they are building a new addition, hopefully this will provide food as we left our hotel at 10am and did not get back until 4pm. We were pretty hungry once we got back.
Wow...what an unexpected, wonderful experience! Not only did they pick us up near our hotel but the hour ride to the river was narrated. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire tour. Hint...if you want to buy stuff in their gift shop, do it BEFORE the tour leaves. No time to shop after
This was an amazing trip! In spite of the rain and thunderstorms, we were all very comfortable in our boat. Our guide was funny, friendly and full of enthusiasm and information.
Had an amazing tour and our guide was hilarious and knowledgeable. Well worth spend to see alligators up close in the bayou.

Captain Ryan made the trip very entertaining! We saw plenty of alligators and other wild life. I would definitely recommend this tour!
A fun adventure in the swamp seeing lots of alligators, egrets, and a wild pig. Jules made it very interesting and fun.
This tour was everything we hoped it would be. From the guide on the bus giving us a detailed overview of New Orleans and the areas we were driving through, to the guide on the boat who was knowledgeable and knew where to find the wildlife. I'd recommend this tour 100%
Great trip - wonderful guide and lots of wildlife. Would do it again.
We attended this tour last week with Captain Dan at the helm. It was everything I was dreaming of! Brutus the 14ft alligator, Cindy the new Mom gator who just laid her first eggs, a family of wild boar, raccoons, a beautiful egret all in the backdrop of the gorgeous swamp. Captain Dan was passionate, excited, and knowledgeable about the wild life which enriched the experience exponentially. Be prepared to tip him after the ride! I saw some passengers fail to do so and I was shocked!
The only negative was the bus transportation which had the AC blowing full blast in the morning and I was freezing I'm basically cold in less than 80 degrees though.
This tour is great!!! So much fun!! A must do. Fed gators from a stick. Saw swamp houses. 2 hr in swamp so cool!!!
I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who is visiting NOLA, and I honestly cannot think of one bad thing to say. Our transportation came right on time and picked us up from a hotel that was an easy 4 minute walk from our Airbnb. From there, it was another 45 minute drive to the Bayou, and along the way, our driver whose name I believe was Alvin, was cheerful and friendly, and he gave us vivid commentary about the history and sights of NOLA.
After we got to the Bayou, we boarded our boat, which had a nice cover on the top to protect us from the sun. Our tour lasted a little over 2 hours, and we got to see numerous alligators, beautiful greenery and marshlands, and a couple of pigs. Our boat captain, Captain Teddy, was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and provided us with ample time to see everything properly. He also gave excellent commentary everywhere we went. He stopped the boat once we got to the pigs and we actually witnessed the pigs and the alligators interact. It was like a scene from National Geographic! He also took us to a Cajun Village and showed us how the locals in that area live. One of the best parts of the trip was when he stopped the boat for a solid 20 minutes or so and allowed each and every person on the boat to feed the alligators. That was very enjoyable.
My only constructive criticism would be this: please consider feeding the alligators something else other than processed hot dogs. A much better alternative could be raw fish, worms, meat, etc. Captain Teddy put pieces of hot dogs on sticks - maybe just consider putting raw meat on the sticks instead? That way we are not causing any harm or injury to the animals.
Other than this, the tour was fantastic and I would say a must for anyone visiting NOLA. Thanks for a great experience!
Great experience and great guide -- Nathan! He was entertaining, kept things light, knew how to attract the alligators' attention, but also passed on some great stories about the history of the bayou and conservation efforts. My whole family enjoyed it. We would definitely do it again!
Great tour! Very entertaining boat captain and wonderful venue with lots of close- up and personal encounters with gators, raccoons, spiders and wild pigs. The bayou was fascinating.
