Randy was an informative and funny guide through the tour. Very interesting understanding better the culture and history of the people in this area - I hope the area can recover from all that is against it. It very beautiful and mysterious countryside. We were so glad we went.

Did the small airboat tour with Cameron. The ride alone was worth it despite it being pretty cold; it's beautiful out there. We were warned we might not see any gators due to it being so cold out but Cameron found us some! He's super knowledgeable about the area and was so interesting to hear how they make a living...

Thanks to Capt. Dave. He was the most down to earth narrator, you be happy to know. He made riding down the swamp a great experience in meeting a gator, you could ever find in a tourist attraction. A must to see.

Apart from the hi-speed hover-craft ride over lily pads and shallow water Capt'n Randy's experience and forth-giving of information and education about his long-line of family tradition was quite exceptional!!

We did the small airboat tour on Halloween morning and loved every minute of it. Our guide's (sorry but forgot his name, has a red beard!) knowledge was on point and had an answer for every question thrown his way. I would definitely do it again the next go around to NOLA

We're locals looking to show our out of town guest a little about Louisiana and it's ecosystem. This tour was fun and very informative! Captain Randy was a great tour guide - ask for him!
