Had a great time. The driver picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off downtown because we wanted to go to dinner. Our Captain was funny and let us take lots of pictures. It was a sunny day outside, so we saw lots of gators sunning themselves. We also saw a lot of birds, raccoons and plant life. We had a great time.

I didn't get get to see the skunk ape (bigfoot) but met the alligators, an adorable raccoon, an ibis, a very large black boar, and beautiful plants and scenery. Our guides and drivers were knowledgeable of the area and the plant and animal life. Gene was a great guy and enjoyed the trip from NOLA. Rene pointed out the plants that Native Americans harvested from the swamp for food and medicine. Good fun!

Connie our pick up driver was a native of New Orleans. Very informative and interesting. Picked us up at the Drury. Was late due to an accident but she called and let us know before hand. Our boat Captain was also very informative and entertaining. All the wildlife came to him when called. My grandson and Oldest son have always been in to Gators and Louisiana swamp life. The Boat was a little bit crowded and it was hot. The boat ride was not quite 1 1/2 hours. The experience was worth the $$. This is A Must Do again.

Our guide was professional and entertaining. (Did not get his name.) His knowledge of the flora and fauna was impressive and much appreciated. Our pick up driver, Mario, was wonderful, and told us a lot about the area and its history. Overall this was a very enjoyable day.

Fantastic tour. The tour driver gave us tons of information about Katrina and how the city has still not fully recovered. Mark, the boat captain knew lots about the swamp. It was evident that he grew up there. Oh, and LOTS of gators!
