This was the highlight of my trip to New Orleans! Our guide, Nathan, was excellent. The boat ride was fun, as well as peaceful and serene. The terrain was really beautiful. The trip was informative and educational as well. We saw snakes, birds, fish, hogs and alligators. The up close encounters with the swimming hogs and the jumping gators were really awesome. Definitely worth the money. Definitely recommend the tour!
Definitely worth the trip out here from New Orleans. Very nice afternoon activity being out on the boat and seeing gators so up close. Refreshing too since boat is speedy so there is a nice breeze as you zip across lake. Learned a lot about the swamp. Saw a wild pig family as well. Definitely recommend as great tourist activity. Took shuttle from city centre which was comfy and relaxing.
