Our guide, Gene, with Tours by Isabelle was excellent. His knowledge of the history of NOLA was great, and he gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations. It was worth the extra money to go on a smaller boat, and arrange for pick up at our hotel. Saw several gators and birds in the swamps, and the airboat ride is a thrill.
This was an awesome tour and our guide was great. Would recommend this to anyone! Loved it.
Loved this adventure. The van transport guide was friendly and helpful. The Airboat captain shared his knowledge of the bayou and the animals that lived there. He made the experience very enjoyable.

From the minute we set off with Ginnie as our tour guide travelling to the Airboat Ride meeting point, the talk she gave was fascinating. I wish school teachers had been as good as Ginnie and as interesting. Our guide on the Airboat was T. Earl T is Cajun for Junior. He was fantastic, really informative and amusing. There were only 6 of us on the trip which was brilliant - I could have stayed in the swamp listening to T Earl all day. Can't recommend this trip highly enough.
Brilliant and well worth the extra expense of going on the smaller boat. Our guide was entertaining, knowledgeable and authentic. We got to see alligators up close and also a large snake, racoons and large ! spiders, which suspend their webs across the smaller channels. We also had the ecology of the bayou explained to us
The boats are quite noisy but ear muffs are provided if you want to wear them. One small point, at speed the boat can slam quite hard so if you have back or neck problems you might want to make some enquiries before booking
However, overall a fantastic experience - the buzz of high speed turns on a boat so low to the water was worth the fare on it's own !
The tour was amazing! The Driver John was funny and insightful both heading to the airboat tour and back. Steve the tour guide was even better. Showing us all the neat stuff the swamp has to offer. The airboat fit my group of 6 and we were able to see things that the larger airboats couldn’t.
We took the small group and we are very glad! Our tour guide was awesome. Who know alligators love marshmallows? We saw a ton of alligators, and some baby raccoons. Highly recommend spending the money and doing the small boat.
Justin was a great guide. Good knowledge about his area with just the right amount of humor. Would highly recommend this tour.
The small airboat was great, our guide took us to great spots! Heads up that the small airboat tour doesn't get to hold baby alligators, but the large boat (not fan boat) does get to. The albino alligator in the main building is pretty awesome too.
A wonderful experience! I'm sorry I don't remember our driver guides name, but she was great. Spoke about the history of New Orleans and also about Hurricane Katrina on the drive out. The airboat was incredible! Our boat guide Justin was excellent! We saw lots of gators! Highly recommend!
A must do while in NOLA!! Our guide T Earl was amazing, saw tons of alligators. I was pleasantly surprised that they are conservationists and the alligators are conservationists. Really can't say enough about this awesome experience!
Excellent tour - we were picked up from Downtown hotel on schedule and taken out to swamp. Loads of alligators to see - although not much other wildlife. Very small numbers 6-7 max I think, so you really got close up to see the sites.
Take water and hat - we went in August and it was extremely hot!

Love, love, love this tour company! The interaction with the gators, and holding a small one! The air boat ride is so much fun!!
Great tour, great guide, held a baby gator, very cold - wrap up warm.
wonderful this was a new adventure for me the guide was very good and informative
saw many alligators in the bayou and an albino alligator I would recommend this tour
One of the best tours I have ever been on! The fast thrill of the Airboat was safe and fantastic as we glided towards the Bayou, equipped with our safety headphones and waterproof jackets think it's a precaution as you don't get wet, just the odd light breeze full which is quite refreshing. The driver was very friendly and informative and he did not rush the tour. When we wasn't speeding around the river ways, we were slowing traveling along the Bayou taking in all the beautiful views, colours and wildlife. I honestly could have floated around the Bayou all day, it truly was wonderful. I lost count at the amount of alligators and turtles we saw too. I would defiantly recommend this trip, it was a lot of fun and one of my personal favourite memories of an amazing visit to New Orleans.
This tour was my favorite thing about New Orleans. I love seeing the alligators come so close to the boat and we even got to hold a baby one. I learned lots of cool things about gators that I hadn't realized before. The smaller speed boat was a ton of fun. Our tour guide knew the best spots to find gators, we even saw a couple raccoons who didn't seem too terribly afraid of the alligators. I would do this tour again and again.
This was the first time we have been on an airboat. We had a great time. The captain took the time to point out different things to us including an owl, an osprey feeding its babies, and of course the alligators. We saw several alligators, most of them were about 5 or 6 feet long. He was very knowledgeable and was able to answer everyone's questions. There were only 6 of us on this small group airboat. I would highly recommend this over the larger airboat tours. We were able to fit into much smaller, narrower areas in the small boat which allowed us to see things you cannot see in the larger boats.
All four of us in the party loved this trip! We saw many alligators, and really enjoyed our boat captain/tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and was clearly a native of the region. This was money well spent!
Great fun and exciting. The drivers are true locals with great stories, lots of guts, and character galore.
Fantastic Tour: Airboat Ride was such fun! Saw snakes and alligators. Held baby alligator. The swamp was so peaceful! Captain Gary was extremely knowledgeable of the swamp - great personality.
This trip was fun and informative. We saw several alligators also.
Fun! The weather was not great, but very worth the time and money. Great guide even learned a lot about the area.
This was a great tour, everyone should go on this, our tour guide was great and we were able to see some alligators.
