This is a must!
, Oct 2019
Amazing tour, its a must! Our personal guide was extremely knowledgeable and had lots of stories to tell and was great fun. Would highly recommend the swamp tour for a small group, we were a party of 6 adults, it was great having an airboat to ourselves. We saw lots of alligators and got up close to take some amazing photographs. Unforgettable experience!

It was a great trip with a great guide and we saw dozens on alligators. Go early or late as gators submerge during the hot hours if the day. The problem was that we purchased the small group air boat tour because it was “ limited to only 6 passengers”. We were put on a boat with 9 passengers and a maximum of 13. The tour also says it lasts 2 hours but we were back at the dock 90 minutes after we left. I would book the same tour if I had it to do all over again but I would appreciate more honesty in the tour details.

Dear Rodney, the small airboat is listed 6 to 9 passengers both on our web site and Viator. We chose who goes on the 6 and on the 9 passenger small airboats based upon the passenger numbers and groups. Our tour is 1 hour 40 minutes on the water. If you saw approximate 2 hours, that is because it is over 90 minutes. The tour is based upon time on the water.
Great tour!

What a great experience and tour guide. Super fun, easy day. We saw lots of gators and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative. My daughter said this was the best thing we’ve done since being in NOLA!

Small boat captain demonstrated excellent knowledge of the area, his boat, and local ecology. Was able to appropriately entertain a small bachelor party. Competitively priced, highly recommended. Note: would recommend planning for a ride back, as it is an out of the way location. Easier if you book an earlier tour, as you can catch the uber that people arrived in.
Two thumbs up.

Our 4 person travel party had an amazing time on this tour. Our guide Paco was very friendly and outgoing, and incredibly knowledgeable. He gave us great information about the gators and the habitat, interacted with the alligators, and answered all of the questions we had. Thanks for a great tour!

What a great experience. Enjoyed every minute of the tour. The only thing visitors need to be aware of is that you need to make your own way to the location. It is about 40 minutes out of town and if you don't have your own transport you could be walking a while or stranded.

We had a great trip! Our guide I wish I could remember his name was great. He grew up in this area and was quite knowledgeable when it came to the information about the plants, trees, wildlife, etc. There were moments when the ride was exhilarating, and moments of slow, calm riding where we could just enjoy the beauty of the land. In the end, he surprised us by allowing us to hold a baby alligator. I highly recommend this excursion!
