Me and my friend were so excited to visit Lake Caddo for the first time. We lucked out by getting Byron as our tour guide through the waters. He had amazing knowledge regarding the history of Lake Caddo. We we're pleasantly surprised by the tour and actually learned a thing or two while viewing one of the best (and only... More

Just a short boat ride on a river. Boat captain was not very interesting. Seemed like his spiel was forced.

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!

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
