Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of New Orleans to explore Louisiana’s mystical bayou landscapes on a half-day swamp tour, with roundtrip transportation included. After a hotel pickup, head down to the bayou swamplands, where you will board your boat with your captain guide. See the local wetland flora and fauna from the comfort of your boat as you drift along the water. Listen as your guide narrates the story of the backwaters, the Cajun culture that infuses the area, and points out some of the critters that call the bayous home. Keep a special eye out for deer, birds, snakes, raccoons, fish, and maybe even an alligator. After your guided boat tour, hop back into the vehicle for a drop-off back at your New Orleans hotel.

    Due to COVID there weren't many passengers so we were able to space out easily. Good for us as customers but I felt bad for the company itself. Business is really slow for them right now. We saw numerous alligators. We didn't get to see a feeding this tour due to a lot of the larger alligators still hibernating (we went while it was still cool in early March). Per our guide they start to come out once the water warms up. Of course the southern chill and frost over that passed over has it a little chillier than usual this time of year. We got to hold a 2 year old alligator, Bruce, and that was so cool!!!

    Excellent tour, we were picked up at our hotel and our driver gave us a tour of the city has we traveled to the Swamp location. He stopped and gave us a chance to take pictures. Once we arrived at the swamp location, the captain gave us an excellent tour of the swamp.

    its always like stepping into the unknown when it comes down to booking tours, however this one did not disappoint in any way. Communication was excelllent from booking through to the tour itself. We were picked up from our hotel in New Orleans by Big Joe who briefed us all clearly on what was going to happen and what we needed to do. He gave us a guided run down of places and history as when travelled to the Swamp Tour venue its self. We only booked onto the swamp tour but you could go onto the plantation tour afterwards. Big Joe was very knowledgeable and so was the captain of our vessel whose name I sadly cannot recall at this stage, other than to say we went on it on Monday 2nd March at mid day and we’re amongst the pink ticket holders? The tour was great and we were able to wildlife close up. I would thoroughly recommend Cajun Pride Tours and Get Your Guide who we booked it through. Thank you all for a great memory to last forever.
