We were picked up at our hotel right on schedule. Driven to the swamp area, about 45 minutes from the French Quarter. We took the fast airboat tour, and it was great. My 10 year old loved the speed. We saw many gators and birds.

Thank you for your interest in our tours! We usually recommend being picked up from Harrah's Hotel (228 Poydras Street) as they have a parking garage attached to their hotel. Thank you, Tours by Isabelle
