  • Truly one of a kind experience. What a pleasant surprise to not get a cheesy gator-only tour but a tour of the bayou and all its animals and history instead. George is a legend. His stories make for an entertaining and informative time. Plus, he is so authentic and welcoming to boot. We couldn’t have asked for a better outing and I can’t wait to recommend him to friends and family that visit. ❤️
  • George is so knowledgeable of the area and a delight to listen to! They are so friendly and patient with the family and fun atmosphere from start to finish the tour was fantastic. We got to see some beautiful gators!
  • This tour is a MUST!!!! My fiancé surprised me with a trip to New Orleans for my birthday. I can honestly say our day with Samantha and George (and of course Clarence) made the whole trip. From Samantha’s crab cakes (seriously the best in the entire world) to the Pope’s bar, the sweet people with stories to tell, and the actual tour with all of George’s history and knowledge sprinkled in… it was incredible. We can’t wait to go back and bring the kids!
  • I wanted to experience the bayou on a small personal scale, just was not interested in a noisy air boat ride or a big pontoon boat with a captain who worked for a big company and had a scripted speech he gave multiple times a day. Happiness was the right choice, we went early to have drinks in De Pope pub and so glad we did the ladies running it were so nice & funny and we all enjoyed our time there. They also had some great restaurant tips for the remainder of our stay. Captain George had a very nice, clean boat with plenty of shade and comfortable seats. He entertained us with his personal knowledge of the bayou and the history of the parish pre and post Katrina. The trip did not disappoint with multiple gator sightings and a most enjoyable day.
  • Captain George loves his bayou and the people in it. You’ll get a full appreciation for bayou infrastructure and environmental history. Because this is a boat and not an airboat, you’ll go through slightly deeper water than the marsh. This is different than other marsh tours I’ve been on that have focused on the education of the wildlife.
