Very relaxed ride, with a very witty and colloquial pilot, on one of the most breathtaking places in America: Caddo Lake. Great service and beautiful views. My only suggestion is to drop the political jokes during the ride. Everything else was just perfect!

Coming from the Deep South I can say I love everything River. This was a great boat ride and was a wonderful family adventure with our teen.

Slow, relaxing steam boat tour, full of very interesting facts delivered by a captain. Boat goes 3 mph and the waters of Caddo lake are most of the time very quiet. This plus a calming sounds of steam engine made our afternoon. Beautiful environment of Caddo Lake with it's cypress trees, spanish moss and turtles laying on the logs in... More

I really enjoyed my ride on the Graceful Ghost. The captain was entertaining with some fun corny jokes and commentary, but there was also interesting history, told with passion. His enthusiasm for the beauty of the area led me to take the swamp boat tour with a different guide, and I was rewarded with beautiful, unearthly views and some fun,... More

This was not at all what we expected. Basically you ride down the muddy, mercy, river @ 3mph and see nothing except trees with moss hanging from them and an occasional river house. Then you turn around and do the same thing the other direction. There was a mix of small children & seniors on the boat so the captain... More

Went on the only operating steamboat. The captain told history and stories during the ride. He was light and entertaining and had a tendency to forget where he left off. Overall a pleasant way to see the Caddo Lake.

The captain is very entertaining. Got to see some Egrets. Got many beautiful pictures there. I would definitely visit again when I'm back in the area.

Enjoyed the ride - slowly and gracefully the steamship moves down the river. Don't expect speed from the Graceful Ghost.

Our tour guide Byron, was very knowledgeable and Fun. He talks fast, but he does tell you a lot of history about the lake and Texas. We Love it. We took the pontoon boat tour. There was only six on the tour, so it was very personable. We saw the steam boat it looks like fun too. Especially if you... More
