My experience was great! Pick up was right on time, clean and cool transport. Our driver was personable and well knowledgeable . The actual swamp tour was amazing! Our guide, Brian, was full of helpful information and stories. The swamp itself was beautiful. I was extremely happy to see plenty of alligators up close. We also got to see some beautiful birds and a snake! This is an experience I will never forget. Thank you!

This experience was great! It was easy to book, our driver was pleasant and shared stories about Hurricane Katrina during our drive to the swamp. The actual swamp tour was great as well. The boat is covered, the driver was full of helpful information and stories, and the swamp was beautiful - we saw a few alligators. This experience beat our expectations. Thank you!

Pick up was on time, ride was clean and comfortable, the tour was about two full hours on the boat and the swamps, bayous, and Pearl River were great for photos and wildlife spotting (gators too).

Guide was great, interesting and had a good sense of humor. He went to lengths to see wildlife, but not so much to be intrusive toward the animals. The ride was a bit chilly once the boat got up to speed, so I am glad I read previous reviews where people said to dress warmly/bring warmer clothes. The captain was diligent about safely and comfort, which didn't take away from the experience. He seemed to really love the area and the wildlife.
