Great tour. We went with a group of 6 and went with the small airboat ride I think it is definitely worth the extra money the small boats get you in the smaller areas. We seen lots of gators ranging in size from small to a massive 13 footer. Our tour guide was also awesome. Highly recommended
Great captain and really fun trip! Got to hold a baby alligator saw plenty of wildlife and trees draped with Spanish moss. Most informative!
Fantastic!! I can't imagine visiting New Orleans without experiencing this tour! I highly recommend paying a little extra for hotel pick-up. Its a good 30 miles from the French Quarter and would be difficult to find IT on your own or even catch an uber back. Our bus driver was so sweet and told us the history while driving through the cities. Everyone was so friendly and we had no issues at all.
The tour itself was a-maz-ing!!!! Our tour guide caught us all off guard and just jumped into the swap to play with the wild alligators. I even got to hold a baby! Worth every penny! Definitely recommending this tour to my family and friends!
this was this experience we were looking for thanks BIG T thank for letting us hold Puffy!
this was the experience i was looking for thanks BIG T and we loved Puffy!
The airboat driver was very knowledgeable and we learned some interesting facts about gators and conservation efforts. My daughter had always dreamed of holding an alligator, so she was over the moon about getting the opportunity to hold a baby alligator.
Oh my gosh, our Airboat Ride was the highlight of our trip. Our driver, Alan, was fantastic. He was funny, entertaining, knowledgeable about facts of the swamp and it's history, and kept our little ones excited and interested. He even attempted to get us involved by offering closer looks at things. Lots of laughs and much fun.. When I purchased our ride months ago, I had no idea what to expect for the cost. Well, it was worth every penny. Don't forget to trip your driver! My only Con is the wait we had at Viator to check in. There were lots of bus loads of people all waiting to check in. I had our paid voucher but had no idea what to do with the long line and no one to ask except the people behind the counter taking care of the lines. There was also long lines for the ladies room. As it turned out the wait was to get wrist bands and your assigned driver.. It wouldn't have been so stressful had I known this ahead of time. BTW, there is live animals and gift things inside to keep kids entertained while someone waits in line. I highly recommend this Airboat ride to everyone at least once. The history lesson during the ride was valved by kids and adults alike.
Highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants an adventure! Our guide was a local and was very knowledgeable and funny. The landscape was beautiful in the swamp and we saw a lot of alligators. We even got to hold a baby alligator, which was awesome!

We learned so much about alligators as well as fascinating information about the swamps and bayous. My husband held a baby alligator, I was not so keen on holding, but didstroke his skin. What is just as interesting is meeting the various folks from all over the world, as the air boat is shared with others.
Great experience - the airboat ride was so much! Be sure to wear Sunscreen
It was a great day the the gentleman that was the guide was very knowledgable and friendly. He made the tour wonderful and showed us alligators and all of the sights of the bayou. overall a perfect experience.
The tour was great! Our guide was knowledgeable and the experience what what we had hoped for.
Ritchie was a great captaina and the tour is amazing. Soooo much fun.
The tour was great! I even held the baby alligator and I am scary when it comes to creatures of nature and insects! Tour guide was very knowledgeable.
Our airboat tour was the perfect thing to do on a hot NOLA day. We saw many swamp animals including frogs and alligators. We even had a 10ft alligator following us around for a bit. Our airboat guide Bobby was fun, insightful, and full of knowledge. I learned so much about the lake, gulf, and swamp areas of Louisiana. He even fed the alligators while on land with them! I highly recommend this tour and would even request to have him as our guide again. Such a wonderful experience.

From the moment you are picked up for this tour to the moment you are dropped back off at your hotel, you receive a high level of customer service complete with fun facts of NOLA. While on the airboat, our guide Bobby stopped for a bit in the shade and gave us some history on NOLA and even let us hold a baby alligator. He even made it “smile.” This tour was exciting, relaxing, and fun! I would recommend it to anyone traveling to NOLA. The sun even had a beautiful rainbow ring around it to add to the beauty around.
We loved this tour! It was the best thing we did in New Orleans. Our guide Paul made the trip fun and interesting. I would suggest this to anyone.
Un bon moment dans les bayous avec l'aéroglisseur bruyant !!! Mais c'est comme ça.. Rencontre avec les crocodiles, j'espère ne pas leur avoir fait peur. Gide sympa et prolixe.
Great tour. Tour guide had a lot of interesting tidbits to share. We did the 9:45 tour and it was super hot. Can and #39;t imagine going later in the day.
Ask for and #34;T. and #34; Awesome tour guide! This ride was the best part of our trip!
