About
Leave the bustling streets of New Orleans behind for a couple of hours on a family-friendly swamp tour. After transfer from your city hotel, climb aboard the covered swamp boat. During the ride, keep your eyes peeled for snakes, birds, turtles, and, of course, gators. The lazy pace of the ride allows you to see landmarks including a Native American Burial Mound, Cajun cemetery, and fishing village.

Fun trip for couples
Interesting, fun and safe trip out into the swamp. Lots of alligator interaction. Maybe bring your own marshmallows. Started on time and finished on time with a friendly guide

Great transportation to and from hotel. Lots of fun and very enjoyable.
This swamp your was a blast!! We loved getting out on the water in the air boat. Definitely bring a rain poncho. We got caught in a rain shower and were drenched. Totally worth it. We saw lots of alligators and our tour guide was fabulous.

Great Tour and Very Organized
Jul 2021
What's better than a morning on a boat surrounded by alligators? This was a great experience and I couldn't have been happier with Louisiana Tour Company for their organization and great experience. They picked me up and dropped me off at the door of my hotel as expected, which was a huge plus (for a fee, of course). The tour guide was excellent, full of funny quips, interesting tidbits, and a few surprises that I won't spoil. We saw plenty of alligators while on the tour as well as other animals and some beautiful scenery. A swamp tour is a must-do on any trip to Louisiana and I definitely recommend Louisiana Tour Company.

Fun and educational
Jul 2021
Everything ran like a well-oiled machine. This was at the top of my to-do list for my NOLA trip and was not disappointed. The hotel pick-up and transfer were prompt and comfortable. I opted for the covered boat over the air boar and was very comfortable. Our captain (I unfortunately don't remember his name) was very knowledgeable and funny. We got to see a couple of large birds and LOTS of gators. I'd definitely recommend and go again.

Solo trip
This was a solo trip it was my first time in New Orleans. The tour was fun and very informative!! The tour guide was very knowledgable of the history and culture of Louisiana. We saw so many gators and he even let us hold a baby gator.

Gators and Birds
Aug 2020
Captain Bebop was an excellent guide to this part of LA. We stayed in the city but felt the need to see the wildlife in the rural areas, and this tour was perfect. The airboat is loud and fast (ear protection provided), so avoid this tour if that's not your bag...but with temps in the 100s during our stay, it felt awesome to fly around the swamp with the wind in our hair, seeing alligators, jumping fish and all kinds of different birds. The captain was big on conservation, and quick to mention that so many other animals kills more people than gators every year, so we shouldn't be so quick to fear them. Overall, a fantastic tour that I'd love to do again. Thank you!

We were in the small boat which made things more personable.. and yes we saw alligators and even had the opportunity to hold a baby!! NOT ME... but others ..This is a must!!!

Brilliant
We opted for hotel pick up, which saved us the hassle of finding our own way there. The bus transportation was spacious, cool & comfortable.

We arrived and got onto our airboat with Captain Dewey. Brilliant experience, with a great guide!

Would definitely recommend.

Swamp Tour
A great day out. We were promptly picked up from our hotel on a small bus but we were then told to get on an even bigger one to make our journey out to the swamp. That part i found annoying as the bus was full so our party of 5 became separated.
We arrived in Barataria, collected our ticket and waited to board our boat.
Once on board we set off in search of gators, we did not have long to wait.
Throughout the trip our guide (sorry forgot his name) was funny, informative, knowledgeable. He gave us a real insight into life down in the swamp lands.
We saw many gators (who knew they liked marshmallows!), a couple of raccoons, a great egrit, lots of vegetation.
For anyone looking to do a tour i highly recommend this company, you won't regret it!
