This was so much fun! From pick-up in front of our hotel to drop off a few hours later, everything went smoothly. This tour was very organized. Our guide on the airboat was Ronnie. He was smart, funny and kind...making everyone feel welcome. We had a close-up view of several alligators, turtles and birds. Ronnie gave us a lot of informatiom about the animals, trees and plants in the bayou. He is clever and witty--we learned so much while having a lot of laughs. He lives nearby and was able to share some amusing personal anecdotes about growing up near the bayou. We had a full boat with people of all ages, from all over the U.S. and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Great overall, the only issue is having to wait so long after taking the transportation option, about an hour before we could board the airboat. However once on our guide was very knowledgeable and really funny and kind. April is still a little on the chilly side, so jackets and pants is smarter than shorts and t-shirts. Also when the weather is on the colder side, there are not as many gators out and about. But overall we saw 10-15 gators and loved the experience!
Bus driver was great. Picked us up in front of our hotel and was very knowledgeable about the area and a lot of fun. Plantation was wonderful but weather was bad so airboat got canceled. Did get to go on a flat bottom boat though and the captain was great. Four stars because the airboat was canceled but not their fault. Great tour!
Probably the best tour I have ever been on. Our tour guide was a knowledgeable local who was funny and totally crazy ,he had no fear playing and feeding the Alligators . Got to hold a baby alligator he had rescued. We’re still talking about this your.. it’s a must if you visit New Orleans!!!!
This was a great outing for our first time. Only wish we were able to see more sites. The tour guy was very knowledgeable and a great host.
