We had a great time with Captain Stephen, he was knowledgeable and hilarious. Would recommend this for anyone visiting the greater New Orleans area who wants a break from the city. Awesome scenery and entertaining tour guide made this worth every minute.

We had a great time on our swamp tour, would definitely recommend it on any trip to New Orleans! We didn't have our kids with us but really wish they could have been there as well. Saw lots of wildlife and the swamp was beautiful!
