Swamp Tour

The Bus driver, Ms. Barbara, that picked us up for the tour was outstanding. Very polite and friendly. She kept us entertained during our ride to the boat and our ride back from the boat after the tour. She explained different areas in New Orleans and gave us some history on them. She also recommended some places to eat at during our stay. The captain on the boat tour was very informative. He also made sure we saw plenty of alligators. We were also able to hold a baby alligator. It was a nice tour, we enjoyed it. We took the first tour at 9:40am to avoid the heat. It was a good choice. I would definitely recommend taking this tour.

The two hour tour was the perfect amount of time and it was a great experience! Our captain was very knowledgeable about the swamp and the wildlife. PLUS he had a tiny baby gator and we all got to hold it and take a picture with it. Oh also he fed the gators marshmallows like they were just little treats being fed to doggies swimming around. So awesome!

We booked swampy tour with transportation. But we leave the bus driver rejected my friends and I to get on the bus. She checked the list and told us we were in the next bus. Then she drove away, and ten minutes later I went to the service staff, who said there was no next bus, and the driver of the last bus have announced our name. But we've been sitting outside and waiting for the car and we didn't hear anyone call us by our name. Drivers and staff are speaking the opposite, and they refuse to provide us with service to send us back to the hotel. My friends and I are the only Asians on the whole journey, and I can hardly say that this is or is not actually racial discrimination, but this journey makes me uncomfortable.

There was an apparent miscommunication. There were two buses out here at the swamp dock to bring guests back to their hotels and the one that you approached was the plantation bus. Therefore, that driver told you that you were on the next bus, which is accurate. Brinae, your driver, was walking around looking for you at the swamp. Our office staff even made an announcement that the buses were leaving for the city because you three were standing by the window for some time. Once they made the announcement and your group stayed back, we assumed that you drove yourself here. When you approached the ticket agent, the bus had already left, and the next bus wasn't going to arrive until 6pm. We did offer that to you, of course. I can assure you that it doesn't have anything to do with discrimination. We do not condone any kind of discrimination at our company. It was clearly a miscommunication. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly. -Jennifer Nguyen/PR Manager (504)689-3599

Very educational and enjoyable the captain of the boat was hilarious and fun. Recommend this tour to anyone LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL and it was a shock that when I visited the gift shop the lady behind the counter was from Marin County Calif. Where I'm from one city over from where I grew up she's from San Refeal and I'm from San Anselmo

What an awesome experience for me and my family! Captain Roger took us around the swamps and shared various stories and information regarding the alligators. We saw a lot of alligators during our trip and even had close encounters! We took a similar tour in Mount Dora, FL and it pales in comparison to this. Next time we will try their airboat tours.

Good tour. We saw alligators and the view was really nice. They were throwing marshmallows for the alligators, not sure how good it is for them
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Thank you for the positive feedback! We understand your concern about the wildlife. We can assure you that the alligators are the top predators in the swamp and they don't have a problem with finding resources for themselves to survive. Plus, they have to eat a lot more than just marshmallows, so you can think of it as more of a light snack that lures them closer to the boat for a closer experience.
