Did the drive thru the gardens. Great flora and variety of trees along the route. Saw several alligators and many birds. Interesting tour, especially for someone who has never been in bayou country and seen alligators in their natural habitat.

I do know that at the Tabasco Tour, they will watch your dog in the gift shop. The pets should be allowed in the car when you visit the Jungle.
