Trip was very good but not worth the money you pay. $25 per person!! The kids went for 8th grade field trip. It's good for those that have never experienced the south or outdoors and for those wanting a true cajun swamp experience, but being...More

I was extremely let down if my grandson had ever been up close to a gator before I would bee even more upset. What a let down. Try something else or save your money its a tourist trap looking for the unsuspecting no-return customers.

Ok, typical turistico venue. Let's say that's a must see. We had even the chance to find a family of 'gators... the thing is, that's a fisherman's stuff. Nature around is semi preserved. It's ok to make a tour. Once...
