Cajun Country Swamp Tours whisks swamp tourists on two-hour treks through Cajun swamp country. Customers hop aboard a crawfish skiff, where tour guide Walter "Butch" Guchereau stands proud and loud, escorting guests through the backwaters of the Lake Martin swamp. The skiff skids across the greenery-riddled waterways in search of roseate spoonbills, white ibis, egretable egrets, herons, and alligators coexisting under the jurisprudence of Mother Nature. Throughout the excursion, Butch will reveal how the waterways came to be, why many backwater legends are more than just myths, and why flossing a gator's teeth is thoughtful, but inadvisable for hand models.

- He respects nature and environment and so is careful not to disturb animals. We approached alligators and birds silently, and were able to take great pictures. This was a very enjoyable tour with a guide who is very courteous, professional and punctual. – BeneGo, TripAdvisor
