First of all the airboat ride is totally different from any other type of boat/water ride.. It was SO fun! Our guide, George, was full of knowledge about the swamp, gators, the bayou..everything! The swamp was beautiful! So green and full of life! One recommendation! Long haired people, wear your hair pulled back or else be ready for snarl city after the airboat ride. Two thumbs up from me! I'd do it again many times!

Excellent tour in the swamps by native cajun people. Our guide gave us great insight into the flora and fauna of the region as well as history and the problems of today. Make sure you go by airboat and not the slower larger boat with more tourists. The airboat is an experience in itself. Oh, yeah, you get to see some alligators. Our guide was very informative and fun.

The tour was great. Our guide was amazing and fed the gators marshmallows from his mouth. We were able to hold a baby gator and the trip was much fun. After the trip our bus was very late and we were stuck with a bunch of very drunk young men. May drive ourselves next time.

we were going to book with another firm but the concierge at Avenue Plaza recommended this firm and we were very glad we booked.Our driver collected us at 8.40 am and gave us a running commentary on everything we passed while collecting other parties and travelling out of the city.This included locations for True Detective which my daughter was very impressed by.Once we arrived at the dock there was time to meet their albino alligator before leaving on the airboat.Our guide Richie was excellent and the scenery was glorious.We saw lots of wildlife in general before stopping to see the alligators close up.There were more than 8 swimming up to the boat and one nearly snapped a gentleman's camera off the pole he had it attached to!.
We then met Richie's young pet alligator and had the opportunity to hold it.
This was a much better trip than others I have done in the Everglades and I would do it again if in New Orleans!

We went on one of the smaller boats and had a great time. Our driver, Greg, said he grew up in the bayou and seemed to know a lot about it. He gave us a great tour and pointed out a lot of things as we cruised around. We went into one estuary and had alligators within two feet of the boat. Greg tied the boat to a tree so we could move around and take pictures. The kids would like it except for maybe the noise, but noise mufflers are provided which helped a lot. If I got back to New Orleans and take another airboat ride, I would book with this company.
