Nice trip into the swamps.

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... read more

The McGee's landing with the restaurant has been sold. The restaurant is gone, but the boat tours are still available. The new owner, the Boy Scouts of America, have done away with the air boat tours but the large boats still go out on tours at a cost of $25 per person. The tour takes between 60-90 minutes and goes... 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.

This was a fun swamp tour. Our guide, Curtis, was an excellent guide. We were told he was 92! He knew the area and gave us great information about the swamp and wildlife that lives here. He knew where to find the alligators, and we saw an eagle as well as many other birds. The gift shop is being remodeled... More

My wife and I wanted to experience a swamp tour while in the area and picked McGee's Landing. We had a great time on a casual boat trip for a little over 1.5 hours. Boat was like a pontoon and not an air boat. Other companies in the area tried to tell us on the phone the water level was... More

Great local tour of the swamp and flora and fauna. Saw quite a few alligators and got to take videos and pictures of them. The "blew by you" comment was referring to the folks who drive overhead on I-10. Quite a site and a good value...Stay for dinner as well.

I'll start by how accomodating the staff was. We booked an airboat tour for the morning but changed our mind and decided for the afternoon. No problem, they accomodated our request immediately. Then let's talk about the tour, if you can get captain Byron go for it. He is superb, he knows the place like no others and has great... More

We took a private airboat tour of the swamps - it was exactly what we were looking for. Fun, beautiful, interesting. Saw alligators, cypress groves, etc. Our guide was informative and friendly.

First, Let me say, I am from Louisiana. The tour guide did a great job of reinforcing the idea that people from LA are dumb; they like to party and drink. The description from the internet: "The boat tour guides are informative and amusing, able to blend history, myth, opinion and paractical lore in one and a half hour tour."... More

Stopped here on our way back through the bayou--had tried on the way out but it was closed. Seems to have unusual hours. The view is exceptional. Food was great. I had boiled shrimp and my husband had a gator po boy. A little pricey for the type of food. But still a great stop.
