The tour started out with the guides allowing anyone to hold some snakes and/or pet the rabbit they had. Then we went to the small zoo (for lack of a better word) across the street. There the guide let people hold some small alligators and turtles. Then he took us over the large alligator pen which he got into show... More

This is an awesome tour. If you're looking to get a look at the bayou: not just the swamp flora and fauna but also the people and lifestyle this is it. Swamp tours are advertised everywhere in this area but, as with any major city tourist area, there are alot of overpriced tourist traps. This is the real deal though!!... More

Some of the swamp tours in this area of Louisiana wanted upwards of $50 per person. Zam's charged us $30 each, but only because we were the only two passengers (the owner's wife said it had been a slow day). If there had been more people, we would have paid less. The skipper was a true Cajun. We tried to... More

I'm a local, and have only done swamp tours when friends have visited from out of state. I've done tours with 2 other (more popular) companies. These other companies have charter buses that pick all guests up from their hotels and transport them to the tour. If you haven't rented a car, then I guess you'll have to settle for... More

We arrived about 20 minutes early for our appointment. I am so glad we did! Derek greeted our group of 11 near the front door and invited us in and showed us around a bit. We wondered around the store and the immediate grounds waiting on the rest of the people for our time slot to arrive. Derek was very... More

Our group had an awesome time!! Unorganized as some have said but that adds to the charm. ZZ was quite a character and we all enjoyed his antics! We missed out on eating at the restaurant, they were closed but I heard it is great! They give you a "backyard tour" before the boat ride that was interesting and fun.... More

If you want a genuine Cajun experience or you are hooked on the history of the Bayou and love the show Swamp People, then look no further than Zams Swamp Tour. It was fun and educational. And who doesn't want to go home and tell people they held a baby alligator? My family loved this tour and will remember it... More

being fromVermont I was totally fascinated with going on a swamp boat tour- Zam's tour was amazing. We saw titles, birds and lots of alligators. I highly recommend going on one of these tours.
