From start to finish, it was a very organized event. Staff is great! Our guide Cpt'n Steph was fantastic, super knowledgeable and fun. He knew everything there is to know about the swamps including plants. He made sure to come close to every gator we saw, and we were always closer to them than any other boat. We saw tons of alligators, raccoons, and turtles. He was joking a lot and put everyone at easy! At the end, I was able to get a pic with a baby gator :) Perfect ending to a perfect activity!

Very well organized. The tour guide was very informed and charismatic. The facilities upon arrival are very new and well-maintained. The bus driver providing transportation to and from the city provided a lot of information about the culture and history of New Orleans. The only negative would be in the numbers of wildlife / animals that we were able to see. However, we did enjoy seeing a very large alligator in a secondary Lake area.

C'est une visite extraordinaire, on peut voir les animaux en liberté, le guide était très professionnel. On a pu voir des alligators, des tortues, des cochons, des araignées, des oiseaux.... Vraiment bien.
