Slow moving gators ambiance on boat Jason’s narration. We enjoyed the relaxed boat trip, fully 80 minutes. Informative and interesting. Easy to buy tickets online. Shuttle from French Quarter would have been appreciated. Cost us $75 with private driver to get to Lafitte Swamp Tour from our Airbnb.

Amazing Experience!

This tour was absolutely amazing. We saw a ton of alligators. From big ten foot alligators to baby alligators, we were able to see them all. Our tour guide was great and very informative. He answered all of our questions and even more. The scenery alone was absolutely stunning. The boat was comfortable and safe which was great for us. We had a four year old with and felt extremely safe the whole time. Our guide even gave some history of the area which was fun to hear and learn about. We definitely would recommend this tour!

Poor customer service and false advertising.

Falsely advertised hotel pick up and never returned our calls for a pick up time. Only to find out an hour before we had no pick up. No refund offered. I felt this was a scam as refunds only offered with a 24 hr cancellation yet I was allowed to book 18 hours out. This was not a very great testimonial to the customer satisfaction. Hoping I will get a refund as I never got any response from them at all.

Regrettably robbed

It was totally my fault. The tour is not accessible by foot. I was not driving and my hotel was in the French quarter. It was nonrefundable. So essentially I gave the tour a donation. If you go on this tour you need transportation to get you there
