    Unfortunately, the Guide/Boat Captain was not up to the level of the other Captains. During the entire tour, we saw only 2 small Gators (about 4 feet long according to the captain). It was so boring that I was fighting to stay awake halfway through the tour. I was on boat 17. On the bus ride back to the hotels, tourist who was on other boats were talking about their tours, how they saw lots of big & small Gators, super large spiders, etc. One couple said their guide jumped out of the boat, grabbed the gator by the snout, held it up, and let the tourist rub its belly. Don't get boat 17.

    Hi William, Each trip can be different from the next so despite the captain's best efforts, there is simply no way to guarantee a lot of gator activity. Some trips get treated to quite the show whereas the next trip will see very little in terms of wildlife. We're sorry to hear you were disappointed but will let the tour operator know nonetheless. Thank you for booking with us and hope to see you next time! TripShock Guest Service Manager

    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......

    Was hoping for more fun ride

    The airboat ride was ok but we were hoping for a more fun and fast ride. Guide stopped several times to provide us with some history which was good but we felt he could have talked a lot less and provided a more thrilling ride. We were some what disappointed.
