Captain Zander was the absolute best!! We did his private tour for my friend's bachelorette and it was so perfect. He was so informative and invested in us having the best experience possible. 10/10, highly recommend!

So so happy I booked a swamp tour with Cajun encounters! We opted for the bus ride with our ticket and it was a great decision- stress free! Upon arrival everything went super smoothly and efficiently. They are so organized! We were given colored wrist bands and that denoted where to sit and which boat we were getting.

The swamp tour was awesome! We got a nice tour of the swamp and bayous! Our tour guide was super friendly and really wanted to make sure everyone got a nice view of some gators! Thanks Jessep! We even saw a cute raccoon for a hot minute but just wanted his snack and ran away!

Gators were very docile to me and not aggressive! You can tell they are used to the tour guides stopping by and giving them snacks so they really put on a good show! One of our gators looked like he was legit modeling because he made his way towards the boat to make sure everyone saw him at all angles!

I also loved seeing the houses on the water and seeing people make their catfish. I'm from CT so I am not used to seeing anyone skin a gigantic fish! Lol! Once the tour was over, we stopped at the gift shop before our bus left. They had snakes and gators in tanks to show guests. I was able to hold a baby gator and it made my whole day!

Totally recommend this tour. Plus the boat is covered so you don't have to be worried about sunburn. Also, there are points where the boat can go pretty fast so the heat was not a concern! My husband did not seem too thrilled I booked this tour but he now says that was his favorite part of our New Orleans trip! Not shocked because this company rocks! Book 'em!

This company was great to work with. We did the group swamp tour with pickup which was timely and the bus was air-conditioned and very comfortable. The guide on the bus gave us a ton of information about the area as we drove which made the hour drive go by so fast. And she gave us a great recommendation for lunch!

Our guide on the boat, captain John, was amazing as well. He was knowledgeable about the area and friendly and made our time amazing in the swamp. Would absolutely recommend!!
