    We chose this tour as part of our New Orleans vacation, having travelled from the UK. It was important for us to find an eco-tour, and this definitely is. We opted for transport too, which was outstanding. Our driver, Erin, was on time and really helpful. Our guide for the tour

    6 friends having a reunion spent some hours on the water with Captain Al. We were impressed by his knowledge of the gorgeous eco system, and his patience with our giggling. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to avoid the tourists traps and learn about the local area.

    We highly recommend Beyond The Bayou Tours for many reasons really. They were very patient with us because we rescheduled twice due to bad weather, they were very understanding of my anxiety too. We chose them too because they do not feed gators and disturb other wildlife. They

    My wife and I took the Honey Island Swamp tour. Not to sounds snobby, but being locals we had potentially higher than average expectations. The folks at BTB easily surpassed any expectations we had. The tour was very informative, but not boring. Everyone was friendly and

    Awesome! We love having locals come out to join us and learn more about this incredible state we live in. You should have higher expectations, Louisiana deserves a fantastic tour and many just do not stack up. Have you checked out our overnights up in Cajun Country? So much fun...We really appreciate your business and this kind review, hope to see you on another adventure soon!
