New Orleans Swamp Tour Reviews


What an experience! We had a group of 7 and booked a private airboat (worth the extra expense for the private tour), with Steve as our tour guide…what an amazing adventure. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. We saw a lot of gators, turtles and other wild life, and Steve was an AWESOME tour guide. He was funny and joked around with us the whole time.


We took a tour one a boat the held up to 30 people. Its a nice ride through the swamp and when its warm you see a ton of gators. We saw turtles and several different kinds of birds as well. The guide threw marshmallows off the boat and the gators came right next to the boat to eat them. He also had a 6-8″ gator with him he all let us hold and take pictures with. Well worth the money for a 1hr and 45min tour!


Paul was our captain this trip had it all from high speed on the water to slow cruise in swamp. Paul was fearless, knowledgable, and funny. We saw multiple alligators and we were able to get up close and personable.

I am usually not much for guided tours but this was the best part of our visit to the Big Easy! Got picked up in front of our hotel and took about a 35 minute bus ride out to their location. The tour tour was a mixture of a fast airboat ride and a close up view of nature and wildlife in the Louisiana swamp. Our guide Bobby was really cool and very informative about the area and wildlife we saw. I highly recommend this as a must see and do when in New Orleans!


We were in a group of 5 couples visiting New Orleans for a long weekend. The airboat tour through the swamp was such an exciting experience – beautiful, peaceful scenery, incredible wildlife (alligators!) – expertly led by our fabulous guide Steve. Steve was so comfortable with the area, the boat, and the alligators. Well worth the time and money.


Started off shaky with a booking problem but the staff made it right and then some. Took the shuttle from the French Quarter and our driver gave us some history on the way. We were on the small boat and I can’t recommend it enough. Saw plenty of wildlife including bald eagles and enough alligators to lose count. Our boat operator gave us a great ride and was able to get a gator to come right next to the boat. Highly recommend!


This was a great swamp tour. Very informative and educational. We got to see some gators and we even got to hold Alan the baby alligator! We recommend this tour to anyone with sore feet from walking around the French Quarter!


What a fantastic time! We saw an albino alligator, 2 babies, and tons of alligators in the swamp. Captain Richie was great! Very informative and had a great time. We went on a day with sunshine and just about 80 degrees. Great timing to see all the alligators. Teens loved it! Might be a long time for little ones, but saw some younger school age kids and they were having fun. I recommend a boat for 6. Great experience!

If you like being on the water and seeing the swamps, gators, etc, don’t miss it!! We went on the tour in early February and saw lots of gators. No snakes, spiders or raccoons but our guide, T-Earle, was entertaining and knowledgeable about the flora, fauna, Cajun life and one heck of a great Captain. Loved the airboat ride.
Recommend you consider your weather and the potential temperatures on the water at high speeds. wear some form of glasses to ensure your comfort.
Well worth the price!!!

Great experience!!!! Had so much fun. We purchased tickets for the large boat tour. We thought we had made a bad decision by not getting on the airboat. We were wrong. We had so much fun without all the noise from the airboat. We saw a lot of gators. Captain Ansom was awesome!!! Next trip to new Orleans we will be going back!!!!
