Swamp adventure

Out bus driver, deWayne was entertaining and a great driver. Desi, our swamp guide, was extremely knowledgeable and went out of his way to show us interesting birds and animals. The trip into the swamp was fascinating. I would definitely recommend this adventure to others. Hopefully, you’ll meet DeWayne and Desi.

The beauty, the culture, the wildlife and the history of the black man who developed a pathway to reduce the travel time to deliver goods coming into the bayou. And above all our tour guide John! Without him I would not have learned and enjoyed all that I did.

Our bus ride with Steve was very informative and enjoyable. The swamp tour and our guide Zander hit the ball out of the park. Zander’s knowledge of the swamp/bayou was interesting and fun. I loved seeing all the homes along the bayou, the beauty the bayou contains is beyond words. I hoped we would be seeing gators, but it was a real treat seeing the raccoon and pig. Best tour in New Orleans!
