The knowledge of the tour guide. I really liked the information he was able to share about the swamp and its inhabitants. As well as he ability to be comical at the same time. Great time had by all on the boat.

Was excited to learn more about alligators. The tour itself felt anti-climactic. The tour guide was nice, however it was expected that he would be more engaging with guests. Felt as though not enough fun/interesting facts about alligators/the bayou was provided. Felt like an extended boat ride on a river. Tour was chosen based on previous pictures where guests appeared to have a more engaging and hands on experience. For what was presented, the price did not feel worth the experience.

This is the 2nd time I've been on this tour the 1st with just me and my wife the 2nd with our kids both experiences were excellent and unforgettable. Try going in the morning, the boat captain said that the alligators are more active at this time because it's not as hot. We saw a lot of alligators and a blue herring. You also get to hold a baby or adolescent alligator. You should definitely book this tour.

We had a fantastic time learning about the natural flora and fauna, wetlands and swamps, and of course checking out the incredible alligators with our guide, Darrin! We highly recommend this perfect bayou experience.

Four of us took the tour including one in a wheelchair. Once we got past the roots in the parking lot, boarding with a wheelchair was easy. Captain Brent had a good patter going and did a great job spotting gators. I think we saw 6-8 gators (may have counted a couple twice). Very pretty on the water. Lots of flowers and birds. They bring out a small live gator at the end (one they are rehabbing) and everyone got to hold him. Highly recommend this tour for both young and old.
