Real Swamp Tour Reviews - Ragin Cajun Airboat Tours

Had a blast on the airboat tour and appreciated the hotel pickup option and drop off. We saw lots of gators, learned a bit about them, and took tons of pictures. It was practically a carnival ride in what felt like Jurassic park. Wear your sunscreen, take the provided ear protection, let your guide know if you are prank sensitive, and hold on tight!

Probably the worst tour we’ve ever been on. Our hotel concierge set us on this tour as I did not research and schedule myself. The driver was late and had no idea of our itinerary. I also did not have an itinerary as none was provided. The bus driver mumbled and talk to herself the entire time. She was on her her cell phone and eating while driving…the worst ride ever!!! Very scary driver.

The tour of Laura Plantation was amazing. Logan was our tour guide and was incredible and very informed. This plantation is not affiliated with Ragin Cajun tours.

Our driver rushed us to the next stop which was our swamp tour. We arrived 2 hours early and had to sit and wait outside in the heat and with bees all around the tables. The tour guide started the tour 5 minutes late which isn’t a big deal unless you’ve been sitting for 2 hours on vacation. I can’t recall his name as I’m not sure he told us. He provided no history, did not answer questions and acted like he was bothered to be doing his job. This was the tour that I was most looking forward to. We did sew a few alligators and he feed them a few (3) chicken legs and some marshmallows. That was the extent of it. I would not recommend this company as you will be very disappointed. We will definitely have to choose a different company and redo a swamp tour. ***BUYER BEWARE!!!

My favorite experience during our trip to New Orleans! I’d been on an airboat tour in Miami before, so this wasn’t my first time. Going in April made the weather perfect! Needed some sunscreen for the UV rays, but otherwise wasn’t too hot or sweaty. We also had bug spray because it was recommended, but honestly not needed at all. It might’ve been unpleasant during the hot summer months, because you are sitting shoulder to shoulder with people on the airboat. The “large airboat tour” is the best deal in my opinion. It’s the cheapest option and honestly still isn’t very big, making it still easy to view the gators in the water. I recommend having a camera ready at all times, because you don’t know when you’ll spot a gator! They have times during the tour when the boat is anchored so you can view the gators while the tour guide feeds them and tells you their names, and also times where you speed really fast through the water like on a speed boat! The airboat does get loud, but they provide earmuffs that work perfectly for muting the sound. Overall great experience! My friend who was initially afraid to go even had a really great time! Good for couples and families.
