    You MUST take this tour. Our guide Jason is a complete bad ass (he pet & kissed a 10ft gator😳), really knows his stuff and drives great👏🏼 we all learned a lot.
    Got to hold a baby gator and see up-close gators of all sizes. Beautiful to see swamp, marsh, wetlands. Awesome look at wildlife. The ride on the airboat was too cool. Even our bus ride out there & back was very entertaining. Our driver Ruth was so sweet! Best part of our N.O. vacation. Thanks Jason, Ruth & LTC✌🏼🙌🏼👍🏼

    Had Captain Barry as our tour guide/boat captain. Really knew where to go so we could get the most out of the tour. Definitely not at a loss for alligators, pigs, raccoons, snakes & birds. Learned so much about the history of the area & about all of the vegetation. The time flew by. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

    It was very beautiful! Our guide was fun and added a lot of history of the area along with funny stories. And seeing the alligators and turtles was just the cherry on top!

    Very worthy tour. Much more than an alligator tour, also a very educational experience. Captain Jason was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

    Freida and Charles gave us an excellent tour of NewOrleans. Especially being a busy holiday week-end, which we did not know when we booked. Charles has a keen, dry sense of humor.

    After some confusion about which boat we were supposed to be on (we chose the small boat but they ticketed us for the big boat) we got going. Alligators all around, literally surrounded our boat looking for the tasty marshmallows. The best part was when the guide pulled reached under his seat and pulled out the baby alligator and passed it around for a photo opp. Awesome. My advice is the small boat, more expensive but more personalized touch.

    This was my favorite activity we did in New Orleans! Yes, we saw alligators all over and got to know more about them, but the swamp in general! It is it's own separate ecosystem and is absolutely fascinating and beautiful! The way the trees grow and the Spanish moss wraps around them and the flowers beginning to bloom is gorgeous. The airboat ride was a blast, a wonderful open and free feeling after being in the city and on the street car with so many people for several days. Danny, our guide, was either extremely knowledgeable or an amazing improv actor (he warned us he may make things up if he didn't know!) and shared so much information when we were stopped to see the alligators close up. I could have picked his brain for hours learning about this incredible place! If I was local, I would book this tour monthly to see the change and diversity of the swamp!

    We had a great time! Ian was very knowledgeable and passionate about the swamp. He gave us a local's perspective on the area and it was very interesting. Would recommend!

    Marty was an exceptional guide and the carriage was very comfortable. Blazestar was working hard not to mess up her new shoes.

    Beautiful plantation. The grounds are gorgeous. The history is incredible. The tree lined walkway is breathtaking and makes for the most beautiful photo.
    The swamp tour was so fun! It’s amazing seeing these animals up close and in person. It made for a perfectly full day tour. Our captain found gators within five minutes on the boat and even surprised us by interacting with them! A day I’ll never forget.
