    What a fun day visiting a plantation and taking an airboat on a swamp around New Orleans. We got to see and feed the alligators, and even pet one. Our guide made it fun and informative.

    This is definitely the way to see the swamps in the New Orleans area. Our guide provided an exciting but safe ride full of alligators, scenery, and stories. The 6 of us had a fabulous time.

    Such a great experience. Would do this again in a second. Our driver was knowledgeable, respectful of the environment, kid focused pictures with alligators! and obviously loved what he does. The Plantation Tour part was interesting but really didn't come alive for us. I think our tour guide was new.

    We found the plantation tour very good with a great guide who gave excellent explanations with a good mixture of humour. The swamp tour was exciting especially meeting 'Francois' the alligator. My only complaint there was no where to buy a good lunch only snacks. Came back somewhat hungry!

    We had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this tour to everyone. Guides were informative and pleasant.

    The small-group was not really small. The airboat swamp tour took place in a big boat with 12 persons. I paid a higher price to have the chance to do it in a small group but they put together two groups...so little bit of disappointment. A part from this nice tour.

    Great fun. We came across little gators but unfortunately not much else. Once the boat got up some speed it was fun. The plantation visit was interesting.

    We had a wonderful time. The tour guide was exceptional. The weather was extremely hot! Yet, the guide went out of his way to ensure that we had a great airboat ride! Our driver was also exceptional. The entire ride to and from the plantation and swamp he provided historical information on the city he loved! Highly recommended.
