We took the pontoon boat with Captain Ron last week and had a great time. If you take the paddlewheeler you go into the open lake. Go instead on the pontoon boat which goes into the swamp.It is awesome and the history and fun facts kept us highly entertained the whole time. Come on, people, these jokes were really mild... More

Save $20 and 10 IQ points and don't take this mind-numbing, worthless tour. The crew were annoying, unfunny and offensive, and the boat is a total eyesore. Who cares that it's wood-powered when there's no soul to be found anywhere on board. The Ungraceful Ghost has been stripped of all character; and fitted with metal gates and flooring and sideways...

The scenery was beautiful, the history interesting, but it would have been better if our guide, Byron, had kept his political and racist opinions to himself. He talked way too much; I wanted to ask him to be quiet and let us enjoy the scenery some. He was very knowledgeable on the history of the area. However, he wandered off... More

We didn't ride the steam boat but instead rode the pontoon boat. It was just beautiful. Our captain (Byron) was funny and very knowledgeable about the lake and it's history. Words and pictures just don't do this area justice and seeing it from boat is the way to go!

I took a group of Senior Adults from my church. Everyone enjoyed the trip. The scenery was beautiful. The steamboat guide was informative and humorous. I would like to return with my grandkids.

We had ridden the steamboat when it was at another location. We were expecting to go out onto beautiful Caddo Lake. We were disappointed that the owner had to move to the Tall Pines Lodge. The tour now just goes up and down the waterway by Tall Pines. The boat itself is very unique. The owner provides an entertaining monolog... More

This historic steamboat experience was wonderful! I was with my father & a few others from Pittsburg, TX. We found your tour online purely by accident. I am so glad we did. The weather was lovely, the crew was so helpful with a few of our older folks which was so appreciated. The Captain provided great local and regional historical... More

The captain was funny and very educational about the history of Caddo Lake. The tour was about 1.15 mins long I think. The sound of the steam and of the paddles of the boat was great. He had a 1st mate too that was on the bottom deck. We got the top deck and great view from up there. There... More

Beautiful scenery on a tour not worth $20 ruined by a sarcastic, rude captain! Captain Ron who thinks he is a comedian (not), went out of his way to denigrate women, insult our President, and make racist remarks. Oh no, he didn't stop there, but went on to ridicule people from other states and even Dallas. I guess he thinks... More

The Graceful Ghost steam boat tour is beautiful gliding along the cypress tree lined boat roads on Caddo Lake. This authentic 1900 steam boat is fun and the Captain certainly makes a wonderful story teller. I believe he could read a phone book and make it funny. This is one tour that I feel I must take anytime I can... More
