I loved it, although, if you would like to experience the swamps with all its creatures, I don't recommend it, for a first timer, I would definitely suggest taking the slow boat ride. Back in 2013 I had one of those sightseeing tours, the slow one and we managed to see a lot of alligators, now I came back for more adventure. The guide was so funny and all the people there very welcoming and friendly. Don't forget to hold on to your hats when taking the tour!
GREAT experience! We participated in the small airboat tour 5 people and it was fantastic. Very organized tour company. Got shuttled from our hotel in downtown New Orleans. 30 minute drive with information on N.O. shared by the driver. Enjoyed the swamp tour. Plenty of gators, turtles, raccoons, etc... Lots of fun. Would highly recommend to others.
We couldn't believe how much wildlife we saw! It was VERY windy though as you're going quite fast. For women with long hair, ensure you bring a hair tie! The tour was probably the highlight of our trip!
this is an absolute must when visiting new orleans. The guides are very knowledgeable and funny. Well worth the money.
Efficient and punctual hotel pick-up. Billy our driver and guide was funny with helpful tips about New Orleans. Captain Sam on the Airboat was professional and knowledgeable.
This has to be the best Airboat tour (it was not just a ride). We saw and learned so much! Alligators swam right up to the boat and hung around for us to observe. When we stopped in a beautiful cove even a raccoon came out to greet. It doesn and #39;t get better than this!
Great tour -- the small airboat was perfect for our group of three. We had another family of 3 join us, and it never felt crowded. Our guide, Rennan, was personable and knowledgeable about the swamp and its animals without being overbearing. He knew the swamp in and out and took us to secluded sections of the bayou. We were the only boat there and only saw other boats when we left/returned to the dock!
The transportation from the French Quarter was easy -- we stayed at an AirBnB but picked a hotel from their pickup/drop-off points that was closeby and it worked out well.
The driver had a little tour of the city as we picked up other guests and made our way to the swamp.
Highly recommend this tour over other larger boats that are impersonal and touristy.
This was one of the best experiences of my life! It was hauntingly beautiful and so cool to see the alligators, we even got to hold a baby! Our tour guide Steve was absolutely amazing! So knowledgeable and fun. We went in the morning and I highly suggest it. It and #39;s cooler and you and #39;ll see more gators.
The trip was great, but I was REALLY IRRITATED to find out that VIATOR charged me a full 29 more than had I bought tickets down there Everyone else paid 95 each. I am going to go online to notify neighbors and friends that Viator does this.
Great tour, was the highlight of our trip to New Orleans. Captain Sam was great!
The tour was great - Viator had everything set up and was very professional. Pick up was exactly on time - ride out to the boat was entertaining and the boat was great. Definitely better to go w/ the small boat vs the ones that hold 20 or so. Our Capt. was funny and nice and we saw a lot of gators as well as some beautiful parts of the swamp - Would Definitely Recommend!
Guide was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Speeding across the lake was a highlight. Time spent in the bayou was informative and unique
Our guide was so amazing, loved our trip learned so much about the swamps and the animals who live there. Holding the alligator was the best part of our whole New Orleans adventure and feeding the 12 foot gator marshmellow will be a memory we will never forget. Great job to all of you and for what you are doing.
We really enjoyed this. Saw lots of gators and the airboat ride is really fun. Our guide was great, he obviously knew the bayous like the back of his hand. It was a beautiful and fun tour.
We had a spectacular time, all because of our guide Justin. He was very knowledge, found several alligators for us to see. Told us a lot about the area, and knew answers to all of our questions. He made it fun. I would definitely recommend this tour again.
We had great weather and were able to see different alligators and areas of the swap. I was very impressed with the knowledge of our swap boat guide. He explained the environmental challenges facing the swamp/marshlands and that it is possible that these areas will be lost.
It was very enjoyable.
Driver from hotel to airboat was pleasant and friendly. Our airboat tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept everyone engaged. I would recommend to others.
Great tour and great fun! Our bus driver was on time and educational. Our boat guide was excellent, he was knowledgeable about the swamp and he seem to truly care about the wildlife that we encountered. Highly recommend!

This was a fun an educational tour. The company was great in communicating with us and their equipment and personnel were top notch. From the moment we were picked up at the hotel to the drop off back was smooth. Our tour guide was a local person with tons of knowledge about the habitat and the animals. The boats are easy to step on a off so people of all ages can do the tour. Hearing protection is provided so the only thing to bring is a good pair of sunglasses and maybe some sunblock. I highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic and the highlight of our trip. It was just beautiful and we saw tons of gators!
