Reviews for Annie Miller's Son's Swamp & Marsh Tours: 6
Fantastic Bayou Tour
By A Yahoo Contributor, 6/12/11
The wife and I had a fantastic time with our host Jimmy on the Bayou Tour. Jimmy provided us with a three hour tour and had the nerve to charge us a rip roaring price of $15 each, You certainly can't beat the price of or the quality of the tour.
It was a trip to see Jimmy feed the alligators chicken. Because of providing the tour for so many years Jimmy has named the gators.
I would recommend the Annie Miller's tour to anyone who visits the Houma area. As far as we're concerned Jimmy is by far the best. We look forward to taking another tour if we ever get back to that neck of the woods, or should I say swamp?
I've been on Jimmy's (Annie Miller's Son) tour twice, in the spring of 2009. He grew up in these waters and land, and his respect for and knowledge of the area is striking. I learned a lot about the environmental issues facing the wetlands there, particularly of the effects of Hurricane Rita (and others) and various industries. His nature is warm and friendly, full of humour, and his marine skills are excellent, so no worries about safety. I will always visit Louisiana on my visits to the USA, and will never pass a chance to get out onto the waterways with Jimmy. The tours I did were about 2 hours long and well worth the cost, which was quite low anyway. Highly recommended!
This tour would get the top ratings. Jimmy was a great guide and the wildlife was unbelieveable. I would retake this tour next year because we saw birds, alligators and a variety of other wildlife. The guide knew how to present the information and make our trip interesting. He was also great with children. Tennessee Couple
I have done all swamp tours in the area and Jimmy, the guide, was great. He is the son of the famous Annie Miller and has grown up in the swamps. I felt he knew the history of the swamps and wildlife in the swamps. I believe this is the only tour that follows Southdown Mandalay Reserve and is another reason our family liked this tour so much. We saw an abundance of birds, alligators, and other animals. Eagles were in abundance.
