Awesome excursion. New Orleans was one of my bucket list destination and this tour was the icing on the cake. Deesi was a top notch guide - very knowledgeable. He was patient with our questions (and quips). Great tour for all ages!

Excellent time! We saw a whole troop of raccoons, and a bunch of alligators! We had so much fun, and Captain Ketchup was super knowledgable about the land and was very funny.

This was my second time to take the swamp tour with Cajun Encounters. It did not disappoint. I brought my 9-year-old grandson for his first ever swamp tour. He loved it. Captain Pat was an amazing guide with a great mixture of local facts and humorous antidotes. We got up close to the wildlife, seeing lots of alligators and raccoons. To top it off they had an opportunity to hold a baby alligator in the gift shop after the trip. That was the icing on the cake for a 9-year-old. I'll definitely be back.
