    This tour was excellent! Saw more than our fair share of gators! The tour guide was awesome and kept us engaged the entire time. Tons of fun. Highly recommend. We missed our original tour time due to traffic, and they gladly accommodated us with a different slot. Great customer service!!

    So Exciting

    We had Dillan as our tour guide and he was the best. He was funny, knowledgable and knew the area very well. It was such a great tour and we were lucky enough to see at least a dozen alligators. Awesome and everyone should do this tour to get a deep feeling of NOLA. Just make sure you bring the suntan lotion. Dillon earned his nice tip that's for sure.

    Really good tour. Only minor thing to keep in mind for the future would be for the tour guide not to hurry with mentioning everything he knows or has memorized in a few sentences. Instead, let the facts sink in little by little, so that the participants can get more out of the tour.
