Although the overall experience was not bad, the company needs to work on their welcoming of tourists. My spouse and I traveled from South Africa and enjoyed the fine and welcoming atmosphere of NO. I have to say I am used to the working of a White Shark diving company in Gansbay, Western Cape, ZA and the way they welcome... More

Went out today on a great time on the water. Even though it's hibernation time, we were lucky to get to see a few alligators in the water plus some birds (and a bald eagle). The bus driver picked us up at our hotel and it was a great drive out. Highly recommend!

I had booked the latest tour with my girlfriend, and we were running behind, trying to get through the insane rush hour traffic in New Orleans. Somehow we made it just in time. Next thing you know, we were in a swamp-boat kicking back. Quite a difference after being in the Big Easy just 15 minutes earlier. Our guide was... More

Took the airboat alternative for a bit more of a thrill and it was good fun! The driver/guide provided great knowledge and we managed to see two gators whilst going around. Only downside was that we wanted to go faster and stay out longer! That probably shows how much we enjoyed it though!

The swamp tour was a lot of fun! Our tour guide (Larry) was entertaining & informative and we saw a lot of wildlife (birds, fish, and a few alligators). The only downside to going in November is if the weather is chilly, many alligators are not as lively - but, overall, it was well worth the deal we found on... More

We went out on a swamp boat tour to look for alligators. Several people told us to make sure and take the airboat. We are really glad we did. It goes super fast and only holds 5-6 people. We only saw two alligators but it was still a fun trip. I think it was over priced though for two hours.
