    Unclear Tour Instructions

    The tour was amazing. However, Tripshock does not do a good job at making it clear which is the correct Honey Island Tour. As a result we almost missed the tour completely the people at Encounters was so keep nd as to hold up the entire tour to wake for us to get there. There were two other families that were lost as well at the first tour place that is not the correct Honey Island Swamp Tour it is not associated with Tripshock.

    Hi Denise, There are several companies that offer swamp tours of Honey Island and we booked you with Cajun Encounters. Our vouchers do specifically mention Cajun Encounters along with their physical address, directions, and phone number. It sounds as though you may have been paying attention to signs at the side of the road leading you to the wrong company, which explains why they weren't familiar with TripShock. I hope you were able to enjoy your tour, but please let me know if there's anything else I can assist with. Best regards, TripShock! Guest Service Manager

    Ok but pricey!

    First of all, we were told that the pick was around 11:15. We planned it like this because our hotel had a special breakfast and welcome event on 12/24. Instead, just as we were getting our breakfast around 10:00 am, I got a call that the van was 2 mins away! This was just ridiculous. We had to rush to our room and leave our breakfast there and within 5 mins, get into the bus. The bus driver insisted that they never have pick up at 11:15! I have a text msg that shows that the pick up was around 11-11:15 am!! As for the tour itself, it was nice to be in nature as we always enjoy that. We are nature lovers and love to learn about local habitat etc. We saw one baby gator up close (they come up to boats as they are fed by boat owners). We saw lots of turtles basking in the sun. I had to ask... read more

    Superb swamp tour

    I highly recommend to take this tour! The tour was well organized, our tour guide (Captain Dan) was very familiar with the area, he told great background information and we had multiple chance to check alligators through the tour. Well spent two hour and absolutely worth the money!
