What are people saying about New Orleans Kayak Swamp Tours?

"Was the best part of our trip to New Orleans and the French Quarter Fest. You really get away from it all without being very far away. The swamps are a whole different world full of life. And kayaks are the way to explore! You feel like you are more a part of the environment. We saw alligators, eagles, owls etc."

"I had a great experience with New Orleans Kayak Swamp Tours. Sammy, our guide, was a local who'd grown up in the area and knew the swamp like the back of his hand, which was really cool. He even spotted an alligator for us. If you like kayaking and want to explore a real Louisiana swamp, this is the place to do it. I'd definitely go back."

"No problems. Everything was a advertised. Pick up and drop off in New Orleans was great. I kayak in the Adirondacks and Catskills and it was fun to see the quite different scenery of the LA swamps. Easy paddle but enough effort to work off some of those New Orleans food and drink calories."
