Brad is awesome! Good operations and logistics. Knowledgeable and nice guide. A small boat was real fun and close to the animals. The big and the small kids loved it! We saw around 40 alligators and 10 turtles, eagle, pelican and stork. We recomand this adventure!
This was the best decision we made on our trip!!! We had originally planned to take the airboat tour but instead accidentally bought tickets for just the swamp and bayou tour. Best accident ever. We got to leisurely tour around, chat with our tour guide, feed gators (marshmallows no less?!?!?), hold a baby gator, take pictures and relax. It was just what we needed...our guide was also very sweet and knowledgeable.
My girlfriend and I went on the small airboat adventure back in March. There were only 2 rows of bench seating so the tour itself was very intimate. We saw many alligators and turtles and some of the narrow byways were breathtaking with Spanish moss hanging overhead off the trees. Our guide was incredible. His knowledge and experience with the swamp and the wildlife was a great incentive. He even brought a young gator along with him and let you told him and take photos. One alligator (about 7 or 8 footer) swam right up to the boat and ate marshmallows thrown in by the guide. Overall it was an excellent experience in the swamp and would recommend this trip to anyone visiting the NOLA area. Also, pick the small boat. You'll get to see and experience so much more.
Great experience. Lots of people there but organized so you know where to go and didn't have to wait long. Boat ride was great as well. Motor is loud but they give you big ear covers. Riding through the swamps is mesmerizing. The captains there are experienced and know where the gators are at. We had a great experience with Corey. Would do it again for sure
We were on boat 12. The gentleman leading the tour said he was new, but I would have never known. We saw gators, bird and beautiful views. Amazing experience.
Captain Dillon ( I think that's how you spell his name ) was awesome. Really fun, extremely informative, and just an awesome experience. The boat was fast and he manoeuvred it extremely well. We'll recommended.
Awesome tour! We visited New Orleans and took several other tours and this is the only one I would recommend! The tour guide was excellent and it was definitely the highlight of our trip. I would definitely do it again!
Cool tour!! We enjoyed it. Seeing the alligators was cool! Had no idea they ate marshmallows?! Our tour guide was great!! I think his name was Hanson? 🤷🏿♀️
So much fun! Saw tons of Gators! Our guide was super interesting. Told great stories and encouraged lots of participation and questions. He made sure that everyone on the 30 passenger boat had lots of time to see Gators and other wildlife. I wanna go again and hopefully see a Nutria! Booked my tour through Gators and Ghosts who took care of all my arrangements
What a great way to see the swamps. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. When they drop you off they have a nice gift shop and bathrooms. Highly recommend
The shuttle driver Marcel was awesome just a prelude of the tour itself. Captain Daniel was great took us deep into the Bayou in the small boat was able to see a few alligators. Like I mentioned the small boat is definitely worth the extra money.
So much fun. We had a great Cajun guide (T Earl) and got to see a bunch of alligators and birds. We had fun with the captain and members of other boats, as well. Definitely recommend.
Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Waited until we got out in the boat to say we wouldn't be seeing gators which was disappointing however, it was a great tour. We went at the end of December which I should have realized that the weather might play a part but it was worth it anyway. Would recommend and worth the money any time of year!
We had a lot of fun on our swamp tour. The captain was funny and informative and the kids really loved it when he pulled out a baby alligator for people to hold and take pictures with. I learned a lot about the area and had a good time while doing so.
Our guide Captain Anson was great. He told us stories about his childhood in the Bayou. We were able to see a few alligators even if it is winter and he had a rescue on the boat that we were able to hold.
This was the highlight of our New Orleans trip. The airboat Guide was very entertaining and informative and it was absolutely awesome to get to see the actual swamps and alligators. Really fun I would recommend it for anybody whether you’re a couple of family or on a girls trip
Lucky to have great weather in January. Our guide Paul was excellent. We saw several alligators sunning themselves in the heat of the day. We also saw black tail deer doe and fawn, fish, a turtle, a bald eagle, herons, and turkey vultures. Highly recommend this company.
This place should be visit must by every visitor of NEW ORLEANS. The bayou steam boat tour in MISSISSIPPI river is unforgettable experience. It is about 1 hr 40 mins tour and guide explains everything during your journey. He finally give you little Alligator to hold with your hands and pose to photo which is very good experience. Handling live baby Alligator is good experience. You feel good by traveling to world biggest river in the steam boat. The best time to see Live Alligators are June-July Time. We have visited this place in the month of December (December 26, 2018). The Nature is Calm and Quiet. Weather is neutral and Partly cloudy. If you visit in summer the temperature may be hot. I Recommend this place to EVERY ONE who visit to the NEW ORLEANS, LA. Don't miss This Place. Also don't miss HONEY ISLAND SWAMP TOUR along with this. Both Tours are Different and give you very pleasant experience with NATURE

Unfortunately, it rained but you can't control the weather. It still was amazing and fun. You could see the beauty of the bayou. Our driver was funny and his little gator buddy, Killer, was adorable. Sugar is a rare albino alligator living in a habitat inside the airboat reception building.
One of the coolest things I've done. This was so fun. I would recommend the semi private service smaller boat and could go places the bigger one could not
This is one of the best gator tours I have taken. P.S. its well worth the extra to take the smaller airboats as apposed to the larger ferry boats. The large boats cannot get into the narrow swamps. You will have a much,much better gator experience in the deep swamps..
We had a group of 5, took a small airboat, had Captain Steve, he was great! Saw a ton of alligators, got to hold a baby gator too. The scenery was very pretty. Drinks and snacks were all reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Great tour even in rainy weather. It poured during our tour, but our guide Jay tried to make sure we had a good time. I suggest you take a small boat during warmer time of year. Jay explained the wildlife is mostly in for the winter in November. He was very informative and answered all questions. We did see 1 alligator, a couple of blue cranes, and an eagle.
Our tour guide Jay Manuel was the best. He was from the area and knew the swamp and the gators knew him. They would come right up when he called. He was very knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna of the swamp. He was quite a character and made the tour highly entertaining. If this gig doesn't work out for him I can see him having a future in Cajun rap!
Very accommodating and friendly staff. The tour guide for our tour was hilarious, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. Great time, even though we went during an extremely cold time for NOLA in 2018
My husband and I had a blast on our airboat swamp tour. We were on a small boat and our guide was a young local who not only gave a great and informative tour, but he showed great respect for the wetlands and wildlife. He stopped anytime we spotted alligators and he made a special stop when we saw a few bald eagles. The guide also answered all of the questions and gave us opportunities to take great pictures of alligators and birds. Thanks and we hope to see you again!!
Super organized operation from the time we were picked up on the bus, to the airboat, to drop off at our hotel. Our captain was so sweet and clearly loved the gators and habitat. Got beautiful pics and lots of gators were out (plus turtles and birds). Would 100% recommend this to anyone!
This was the best experience we’ve had so far while visiting New Orleans. Well worth every penny! Richie made the experience amazing! Such an awesome tour guide, definitely has a passion for what he does. Cant wait to bring our daughter!
Definitely recommend the smaller boat tour. Much more personal and easier to get up and close to the wildlife. Loved the guide we had. Was later in the day but he was still so full of energy and humour.
