“Awesome and easy”
My friends and I just did this last weekend and had a great experience. Our guide shared lots of information with us and answered all our questions. We saw about 15-20 alligators, plus some other wildlife. The guide said the best time to do is in the afternoon because that's when all the gators are out. All in all in a was a very relaxing ride. I appreciated that there were no gimmicks and no gift shop--just a simple swamp tour. It's an hour outside of New Orleans, but the drive itself and the tour is well worth it.
