    My daughter and I used Tripshock to book an airboat tour while visiting NOLA. The booking went smoothly however we didn't get put on the list for the Airboat company to pick us up. No one wanted to take responsibility for the mistake and the airboat tour put us on the next tour. This mess up cost my daughter the afternoon of sightseeing to wait for the transportation that never came and then to wait agin for the next shuttle to pick is up. All in all, I'm disappointed that this service didn't confirm with the tour company to be sure we were on the tour list......

    Guide swam with the gators!

    One of the best excursions I've ever been on! Informative, beautiful and super exciting when our guide actually got into the water fed and played with a 12ft gator! It was truly an amazing adventure & I would recommend it in a heart beat!!!

    We had a good time - unfortunately there was no 'narrative' about the area tho.

    Although we had a nice time on this 'adventure' - and we did get to see a few alligators - we didn't get any of the narrative experience we were expecting. We got the safety rules when we got on the boat, then we got a couple of jokes throughout the ride. But we didn't get any historical, geographical or wildlife information at all. That was disappointing.

    Great adventure!!!

    Great tour with Airboat Adventures!!! We had an amazing adventure and our guide was knowledgeable and amazing at his job!! We saw several gators and could hold a baby gator if we wanted!! Beautiful area in the cypress swamp with all of the green foliage and nature. Transportation was a little late picking us up and would have been nice to know beforehand that they're typically 10-15 mins late, but I understand they want you to be ready and waiting for when they come to pick you up. All in all, a great day!!!

    Fun Airboat Adventure

    Great airboat ride! Our guide was very knowledgeable on the swamp environment-plants, animals, water quality, etc. Got to see numerous alligators up close and hold one in the boat! Great tour, highly recommended.

    A great way to spend part of the day!

    Louisiana natives but never made this experience happen. Guides were great. We had Allen and Papa (12 of us with 2 boats) They were fun, informative and made it a great experience. A must see and do when in New Orleans.

    Best time

    I went with a group of friends and have a blast. Best part was holding the guide's pet alligator that was almost 3 feet long.
