This was one of my favorite activities during my weekend trip to New Orleans. The boat ride itself was fun and Capt'n Randy made it even better by taking us to different areas of the bayou for a history lesson or to explain his personal connection to the land. The best part was his friend Justin - if you're lucky... More

We took the airboat tour to get a sense of New Orlean's bayou and wildlife. We booked through Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours. They are conveniently located 25 minutes from New Orleans. We drove our own car, so I am not sure what the shuttle situation is like, but they seemed to drive thru regularly. We were directed to the Airboat... More

We took an airboat tour on a recent trip to New Orleans, and it was definitely the highlight of the trip! Randy was our captain and was quite knowledgeable and entertaining. We saw a couple alligators and several different bird species. Definitely recommend this tour as there's nothing quite like the bayou elsewhere in the country!

Booked Hotel Pickup for 8.30am, waiting outside the hotel from 8.25am, no pickup by 9.30am. Rang to follow up, were advised that they came and we were not there. Didn't try too hard, seeing as we were waiting out the front. Have had to rebook for later tour , half a day wasted.

We took an airboat tour on a Saturday in February. Captain Randy was our tour guide and he was awesome. he was so knowledgeable and passionate about his heritage and where he lives. We didn't see many alligators but the experience and the amount of information we received was amazing.

Our guide was knowledgeable about flora and fauna, also able to give us plenty of info about the area. We saw lots of alligators, plenty of turtles and birds. Had fun doing it. Got to hold a little alligator if we wanted to.

We had a great time on our airboat tour this afternoon! Nice break from the city... the air is just fresher out there! The bus picked us up right at our hotel. Very convenient! And we were lucky to have Captain Randy as our guide. His passion and knowledge of the area wildlife were an excellent complement to the fun... More

Took the tour in mid February and the guide took us right up to quite a few. Great tour for families.

We stopped at Jean Lafitte swamp tours after deciding on a whim that going on a boat would improve our chances of seeing alligators. We we right about the gators (and other wildlife). The tour guide was entertaining and the 1.5 hours entirely worthwhile. My only regret was my two kids weren't with us because they would have loved it.

My husband and I went on the Swamp Boat tour, not the airboat tour. The tour itself was good until the captain pulled the boat up to a 12 foot alligator laying in the lilypads just so he could make it move and everyone could get good pictures. He also stated that it was the last tour of the day,... More
