We did the swamp tour with Bishop, which was excellent. He was very informational and informative, but also funny and entertaining. He has a dry wit, which I loved, but could be missed if you have no sense of humor. He took us to many...More

Great tour. Access was easy and they clearly were organized. Staff were courteous and on the ball. Equipment appeared to be in good repair and the tour itself took us to see hogs, gators, raccoons and snakes, among other animals. We also saw some of...More

This swamp tour was so much fun. The bayou was beautiful and we saw several gators. Bishop was a hilarious tour guide and also gave us interesting info about the animals/reptiles/plant life/etc. of the area.

This is about a 45 minute to hour drive from New Orleans. I'd been on other swamp tours before so knew what to expect - feeding the gators. BUT - THIS tour includes feeding the wild pigs which was more interesting and unusual. Our guide...More

Is definitely worth the money, we saw lots of swamp animals and our captain Jacob knew the swamp really well and gave us detailed commentary. It was definitely the best thing we did during our one-week stay in New Orleans. I recommend this to everyone!

We did the early morning tour and we definitely got our money's worth. The weather was perfect, the breeze once on the water was terrific. If it's too hot, the animals won't be out. Don't think it would be an issue with... More
