    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    This 2-hour swamp tour of New Orleans starts with pickup from your downtown hotel. After a 35-minute drive by air-conditioned van, you'll arrive at your destination. Meet your airboat captain and settle into your seat on the 16-passenger vessel, then prepare for a wild ride into the swamp. Powered by a 454 Chevy engine and propelled by huge fans, the airboat travels at speeds up to 25 miles per hour (40 kph). The captain performs exhilarating high-speed maneuvers, cruises at gentle speeds, and makes plenty of photo stops while narrating on the wildlife and local flora. Alligator sightings are common in these waters, but your guide is trained to ensure safety at all times during this family-friendly outing. After your tour concludes, relax with transport back to your hotel in New Orleans.

    We really wanted to go on the swamp boat tour, and had our 5 year old daughter with us. We were excited to go, but when we got to the tour location, there was a height requirement of 48 inches, and my daughter was under, so we could not do that. The tour operators helped out

    We are so glad to hear that you had a great experience and that were able to accommodate your and your daughter! We do apologize for your experience with transportation. We are doing our best to navigate through road closures and construction at the moment to accommodate the door to door pickup service. Thank you for the positive rating and we appreciate your understanding!

    From the pick up, to the tour and the drop off, each part of this excursion was done with friendly professionalism. We were picked up and dropped off to the tour location early giving everyone enough time to use the facilities, shop and relax prior to the tour beginning. From

    I am so upset that I didn't get out bus driver's name. He was so knowledgeable and entertaining. We did the 4-hour swamp tour and it was amazing. Larry was great. The experience was great.
