My husband and some friends went on a tour yesterday. The captain was so nice and knowledgeable. He took us to a spot where there was a HUGR gator sleeping and stayed long enough for everyone to see and snap pics. We also went to another spot where there was a gator swimming around. He tried to kiss the gator... More

Our group loved the boat ride into the swamps. And we saw roughly 6 alligators in total. Plus we got to hold a baby alligator, too. Captain Mitch was a great tour guide, and we will definitely recommend this tour to everyone we know!

Our guide Shawn was awesome! He gave us a lot of information on the tour! He was very nice and funny! He would slow down and point out all the wildlife. When we spotted more then one alligator he had a young alligator with him that he pulled out and we were allowed to carefully hold and get pictures with!... More

We took a 6pm ride on a rainy day honestly I wasn't sure if it was going to be a good ride since the weather was not the best & we were told we were not guaranteed to see any alligators. Little did we know it was going to be an amazing ride, we got to see a medium &... More

The 6-passenger Airboat Trip was just OK. It's listed at 1 hour 45 minutes. We left about 15 minutes late and came back on time so we were shorted 15 minutes. Besides that, it took at least 20 minutes of slow idling speed to get out where they are allowed to go fast. Same for the return, so that was... More

So glad my friend talked me into taking this tour. Even though I have seen plenty of gators before it was interesting seeing them in the bayou. Our captain was a gem! The ride was very enjoyable, I didn't want it to end.

Gary was the best tour guide I have experienced. The tour was packed with fun and educational information. It is very family friendly, and definitely worth every penny. This is a tour that I will definitely do again and again!!

I'd highly recommend buying Life Insurance for your loved ones before going on this Ultimate Adventure because it might become your Ultimate Demise. Not kidding. It started with the horrific shuttle ride to the dock from the hotel. I should've just gotten off at the dock and caught Uber back to the hotel but thought we'd stick it out. Meanwhile,... More

This was absolutely the worst experience in the entire history of our visits to New Orleans. To begin with, the tour guide booking the trip vastly misrepresented the plan. And then we were driven to and from our hotel by a drunk tour bus driver wherein I sat as close as possible to insure he stayed awake and within the... More
