With alligators, hidden villages, and snakes, Louisiana’s swamps can be scary to explore on your own. On this tour, your guide will keep you safe—and fill you in on Cajun history—while you explore the swampy territories. Visit areas of Honey Island Swamp you can only reach by boat, and learn about the area’s wildlife from your guide. Plus, round-trip transportation from New Orleans makes for a no-hassle adventure.
What to Expect
Your tour starts with hotel pickup from New Orleans. Sit back and relax on the drive over to Honey Island Swamp in Slidell. Once you arrive, your adventure begins at one of Louisiana’s last protected wetland areas.

Board a flat-bottom boat that your guide can easily maneuver through the foliage and narrow passageways. Explore the wildlife in the area, and keep an eye out for animals, such as alligators, wild boars, and snakes. You'll visit hard-to-reach spots of the swamp.

Your guide will tell you about the history of the swamp and its importance to the people who still live there in a small Cajun village. 

Afterward, enjoy a relaxing transfer back to your New Orleans hotel.

Tickets bought are good year round. Unless you have a damned good excuse why you should get a refund, I'd call any tour office directly if you have a "distinct" problem with either a company or guide.
