The tour guide was hilarious! He was so knowledgeable about the bayou, its inhabitants, and the ecosystem. He kept cracking jokes and was very entertaining. He was a bit crude but the humor went over my 8 year olds head. ie- crawfish have 4 peckers, and he showed us lol. Overall it was a great time.

Our conductor was informative and went above and beyond. We’re lucky to see alligators in the middle of winter. This was my second time going and will be back again.

This was my favorite part of visiting Louisiana! Our captain was funny and offered lots of information about the area. We saw about 6 gators and a bald eagle. Our captain took us to see the most recent hurricane’s damage. Our bus driver to and from was great too. Alton shared history and facts about the city along the way. We had beautiful weather. The pontoon was nice and relaxing. Make time to go do this!

The bus driver, Alton was fabulous! He talked to us the entire bus ride telling us facts about the city. Very interesting! Then our captain was awesome! He was funny and informative and made the experience one to remember. We saw about 6 gators and a bald eagle. We learned about the most recent hurricane and saw it’s damage. We took a pontoon boat and it did not disappoint! We were able to see everything and get back into some pretty tight spots. It was awesome!
