I was in New Orleans for my graduation with my husband, business partner and his wife. We had a fabulous time. Our guide, Captain Mitch was outstanding!!!! He gets an A++++++++++ We saw the one-eyed-14 foot alligator, turtles, and I even caught a picture of a bald eagle! The history of the locals that live along the water was so interesting. I will definitely do this tour again.

We had a great time on the tour. We did get muddy...as I tour guide said don’t wear your Louis Vuitton:-). We saw birds, gators and some homes on the bayou. Weather was perfect on the 9:40 tour. Well worth it. When I signed up we requested hotel pick up. A staff member immediately called and suggested we take Uber as it would save us money - i really appreciated that. Thanks for a great tour

We visited recently. We had the New Orleans city pass and Ultimate Swamp Adventures was one of the places included. So glad we did! Our guide Gary was FANTASTIC, very informative and a great sense of humor. This guy actually catches gators with his bare hands!! We witnessed it firsthand. The tour through the bayou was approx 1hr45min. We made reservations the day before and drove our rental car (Approx 1/2hr) to Westwego LA. A confirmation email was sent within minutes. Our tour was on a shaded boat (NO restroom onboard) and there really was no "bad" seat onboard. We saw tons of gator both large and small, and some of the passengers were able to hold a small one.If your ever in the New Orleans area you should go, you won't be disappointed :)

We absoutely loved the tour. We were I. The covered boat and our Captain was the best. The history lessons was mesmerizing and he even caught an alligator with his bare hands
