Enjoy a scenic drive through Cajun Country before floating down the winding bayous.
We loved this woman. She qualifies as a true entrepreneur. She arrived in the states at the age of 21 and could not speak English. Her first job was teaching French at Colby College in Maine, where the students, in return, taught her English. She went back home, but returned and settled in New Orleans, married, and started a family. Of the many jobs she enjoyed over the years, her time with a large tour operator, in particular, felt "right" to her. Taking all she learned, she created her own excursions and she delivers them in a "small" way, that is, groups no larger than 14. We give her an A+.

On your narrated boat tour, you'll float down winding bayous in remote cypress swamps. Your Cajun guide, also an alligator hunter and fur trapper, will share his vast knowledge of the swamp and introduce you to reptile habits, native healing plants, and exotic birds of the area.
