Donald is awesome! We went to NOLA a bachelorette party. We had so much fun on the bus. He was such a great host. At the end of the trip he even made us a reservation at a restaurant to get food. Literally he made our New Orleans experience phenomenal.

Donald is incredible. He made our bachelorette night out the best night of our lives. Going out on the Gator1 was absolutely the best part of the night by far. I would highly recommend giving Donald a call, if you are planning on celebrating a special event in New Orleans. If there were more stars to add to this review, I would!

Absolutely amazing time for us 12 guys from NJ! To start the night off, Mr. Donald cooked up 30lbs of perfectly seasoned crawfish. He not only took the time to explain how to prep, cook, and eat the crawfish, but threw in a ton of jokes and had the whole group in tears... To say all of us had the time of our lives is an understatement...

AMAZING!!! Donald is the absolute best host for a bachelorette party - even in torrential downpour! Hands down one of the highlights of our weekend!! Will definitely rent Gator 1 for future weekends in New Orleans.

We rented the party Mr Bucs bus for 30th bday party and pub crawled through the city. Donald was quick to respond, super accommodating, and very friendly. I highly recommend booking your party or event with him. The bus was very clean, AC worked great and best part we toured the bars in the city without having to drive. Thanks Donald! So much fun!

If you even wondered what it's like riding on the back of one of these beauties I recommend renting out gator 1 for a special event, b.y.o.b., sweet sound system, there is a phone jack if you have your own playlist. If you are worried about getting up and down the stairs of the truck after stop after stop of your favorite party spots, don't fret, Donald is there to help you on and off the steel ladder.

What's loud, red and fun allover??? Gator 1, that's what!!! Had an absolute blast riding around the retrofitted fire engine as it took my group and me to three breweries around the city. Captain Don is the nicest guy and very attentive.

Donald is absolutely amazing and was so accommodating! We rented his bus for my sister’s bachelorette party. Donald offered to pick up whatever we needed for the bus ride and had it ready for us upon our arrival. He was prompt and very communicative all the way up until our reservation. Can’t say enough about how great this experience was. So much fun!!
