What people are saying about New Orleans
We started early, which was nice, because it was hot when we weren't moving. But we we were moving a lot and it kept us cool. We went fast down the waterways and slowed down to take pics and ask questions in some of the tour guides fave spots. We only got stuck once, when the guide took a turn too fast and we veered into the swamp. Was okay though. Another boat quickly got us out and while we waited we got to play with a baby alligator which tour guide had on board in a cooler. The views were magnificent. We saw alligators, egrets, swamp chickens, turtles and lots of flowing spanish moss. Would highly recommend this company and this event to anyone. Wear your ear protection. It got loud without it!
Bus tour guide was informative, but the guide at Whitney Plantation (Ali) was phenomenal!!!! He discussed difficult subjects of slavery, shifts of power and greed....this tour was told from the view of the enslaved with very little specific time spent on discussing land owners.....ABSOLUTELY recommend. This is the history we NEVER learned in school.
This was the best swamp/alligator tour I have been on. It wasn't rushed and there weren't too many people on the boat. The captain was hilarious and really knows his stuff. And we got to hold a baby gator that was so cute.
Dewey was an amazing tour guide! By far this was our favorite experience in New Orleans! Glad we had the chance to meet Hercules up close and personal. Never thought I’d ever pet an alligator! What a memorable tour!!
My wife & I really enjoyed this, got to see plenty of alligators & had a blast with the tour guide, he was very knowledgeable & experienced. Really good feeling being on that boat at full pelt too
