Good
We chose this swamp tour because on the website they say "Your Cajun guide is a native of the area who will share with you the legends and lore of Louisiana's still untamed wilderness." And that's what we were looking for. We did hear a lot about movies filmed in the area but that's not what we were interested in. He did a fine job talking about alligators though, so if that's what floats your boat they can handle it.Middle age female06-18-09
