Okefenokee Swamp Tours - Which is best

My husband wants to tour the swamp, so I thought it would be easy to plan it and give it to him for Christmas. The information is confusing to me. I'm reading there are several entrances - different parts and activities for each entrance. He wants to take a boat tour thru the most scenic part of the swamp. Not really interested in petting zoos or bike rides - just a really good boat tour. Hope someone can help me sort this out!

A number of years ago, I did a ranger-led swamp tour out of the southwest entrance; it was excellent. We camped at the state park and also rented a canoe to take out on our own. I've passed the entrance to the commercially run Okefenokee Swamp Park quite a few times and have always wanted to stop but have never had the time. There are swamp tours there, but I don't know how they compare.
