My kids werenin town visiting for Spring Break, wanted to explor Louisiana, decided to take this tour, needless to say, it was more than we expected. Our bus driver, Derrick (apologies if I get names wrong, I am bad with names) was informative and friendly. Our boat Captain, Everett was too informative, funny, and friendly. We were given time for pics and to ask questions. Will do this tour again.

Our bus driver told us a lot about the history of the areas we went thru on our way to the swamp. It was cold and rainy so we didn't see much out on the swamp but our captain made the trip such a great experience. Will definitely book with again.

We enjoyed the information from the bus driver and enjoyed our swamp tour with Steven. He was knowledgeable and very entertaining! We did see an alligator, turtle, heron, raccoons and some Red cardinals. Being from the northwest, that was the first time seeing the cardinals! We enjoyed learning about the Cyprus trees and the brackish water. Seeing the Cajun community was also very interesting. I recommend this tour!

The tour guide was phenomenal! He was entertaining and knowledgeable. I learned a lot about New Orleans and its conservation efforts. Chris the wild boar was pretty cool. Due to the weather, we didnt get a chance to see any alligators in their habitat but it was great just the same.

Fun and exciting boat ride through the swamp, alligators, wild boar, and snakes were all part of this tour. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. Don't be fooled by the look of the boat, they can get speed, adding some additional adrenaline and fun
