Fantastic!! The swamps and bayous were just as I'd imagined them to be. The scenery was beautiful and peaceful. The tour was small and intimate. We saw heaps of aligators and different species of birds.

This was a blast! We got to go fast, see gators, and learn about the Louisiana wetlands.

We didn't pay for many tours on this NOLA trip but this was one thing we did do and it was so worth it. The total trip was an hour and 45 minutes and it was fun from start to finish. Our boat guide was George. He is born and raised in this part of LA and is super knowledgeable about the bayou, the animals, the flora and fauna, and all things environmental and economical. He was truly a joy. It was unfortunately on the colder side when we went out so we weren't able to see any gators swimming around. Happily, he brought a little buddy along with him. A 3 foot long male gator named Slater. Oh, I loved him so. He was a mellow little dude and we all had a chance to hold him.
Even if it's not a sunny day when you go out, I recommend bringing sunglasses. The wind is whipping and it's hard to keep your eyes open otherwise - something my husband learned the hard way. You might want to bring a water bottle as well. You don't get wet and don't have to walk through difficult terrain or anything so you can wear whatever you want.
So this was the large boat tour. The boat holds about 25 people and we had 22 on our trip. I don't think this took away from our experience. I was wondering if I should not have cheaped out and just paid for the small boat tour but then I saw that our boat went to all the same places as the small boat. It's not as though being on the small boat gave you the benefit of going deeper into the canals. The boats left and returned at the same time. Frankly, I think the small boat people were ripped off.
We rented a car and drove here. It seems absolutely ludicrous to pay 40 per person for a ride. Enterprise runs a deal where you can rent a car for 30 for 72 hours from Friday-Monday non-Airport locations. Take advantage of this. This way, you can drive yourself to this location, to the plantations, and anywhere else your heart desires.
I have to commend Viator on their customer service. We were originally scheduled for the 8th but the temperatures were near freezing that day. I called and they allowed me to switch it to the next day, when temps would be up 25 degrees. Thank you, Viator, for have a human answer the phone, and for having that human help me right away.

This was the highlight of the whole trip it's unique to Louisiana. Our guide JJ was extremely knowledgeable as he grew up in the bayou and educated us about the perils the swamp is facing. He was really well equipped to discuss alligators, which was the whole reason I went on this trip. He was fascinating to listen to, his personality was major PLUS, and he was very courteous and fun to spend time with. The airboat itself was a blast wear the headphones, you'll thank me for this, and I saw scenery that was awesome and so very beautiful.

This was SO MUCH FUN. The guide was great and incredibly talented at driving the boat through the swamp. Something we would absolutely do again. We even got to hold a young alligator at the end of the ride. We would all absolutely recommend this. Remember to wear warm clothes, the wind gets chilly.

Just a beautiful experience. It is a gorgeous scene with more than just alligators. There are beautiful Cyprus trees and exotic birds everywhere. One of my favorites parts of my trip to NOLA.

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

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!

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.

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.
