      This was the best guided tour we’ve done when visiting New Orleans! Captain Reggie was entertaining and informative. We went on 8/7/21 and the whole family enjoyed it. The tour is 100 minutes long which was perfect - we thought a four hour tour would’ve been too long. We brought a backpack with snacks and drinks and the entire tour is shaded under the pontoon. I highly recommend this tour!

      We went on this swamp tour and it was excellent. The guide was hilarious and told us about the town and the swamp we were touring. Some people were asking about seeing gators and he said this was a swamp tour, but if we look we were sure to find some gators. There was plenty of jokes, info, and gators in the swamp on this tour (along with a baby gator he brought out for us to hold just in case there was none in the swamp) I highly recommend this tour, it was a lot of fun!
