“Paddle Faster, I Hear Banjos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

What a great time. Go Devil tours provided a very informative tour of Texas' only natural lake and state treasure. Seven of us went out for our hour plus long tour and were taken back in time. Friendly, fun, beautiful. Caddo lake history and local lore greeted us at every turn. See the old haunts of the Texas Badlands. Hear the stories of the Modulators and the Regulators. Travel down the Government Ditch. Enjoy the sights, the sounds, and the smell of nature. Treat yourself and your family to a wonderful experience. I will be going back for an after sunset tour to see the gators and hear the creatures of the night. You won't find this ride at Six Flags. You"ll find it at Go Devil Tours.

“Gators, Frogs and Bigfoot?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

We took this tour several years ago and it is something we still talk about. We wanted a day and night trip, so Billy took us out for a two hour sunset tour of Caddo. This guy knows this mysterious lake so well. We wound up catching bullfrogs (I caught mine!) and we were afraid he was going to catch the gator and throw it in the boat with all the frogs we caught! Grown men shouldn't have this much fun.

“A great Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

Our family just got back from a long weekend in Uncertain, during which we went for a tour on Lake Cado with Go Devil tours. Our guide, Angie, was very friendly and informative and we all enjoyed the hour-long ride. Visiting in February meant that there was not a large amount of wildlife visible, although we did see plenty of bird life. We would recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Uncertain and Lake Cado.

“A Personal Guide into the Surreal World of Caddo Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2010

Howdy All,

My Wonderful Wife and I just returned from 2 very restful and peaceful days in Uncertain Texas. We had two main things that we wanted to see and do while we were there,
one was the Graceful Ghost Steamboat Tour, and the other was a personal tour of Caddo Lake. I have to say we found the perfect way to see all that Caddo Lake had to offer and were led through the mysterious wonderland of Cypress Trees, Spanish Moss, an abundance of different Wildlife, and Water lilies by Angie of Billy Carter's Go-Devil Tours.

Angie met us at the Dock at Johnson Ranch there in Uncertain in the Go-Devil boat, the engine set up is made in Louisiana and was the perfect type of motor and prop for all the different water levels that she took us through, it can go in shallow water that most other boats can't get into, even as little as 3-4"

You could tell Angies' love and passion for the Lake, the area, and the rich History. We learned that she's lived on the lake for almost 30 years, and you could see that twinkle in her eyes as she told about all the different events that had taken place on and around the lake and it's History, She was also very knowledgeable about all the different type of vegetation, flowers, and the different species of Wildlife and Birds.

This was so peaceful and enjoyable, we never rushed or felt rushed, there was always time for that next picture, as we are avid/rabid <G> amateur Photographers. Angie seemed to know all the great shots, and approached at the right angle for good lighting and composition.

I have to say, we were a little sad when the two hours was over and it was time to head back to Johnson's Ranch Dock, but we've already talked about going back, and taking another and longer tour with Angie and Go-Devil will be our first stop.

This is the perfect way to see this wonderful and beautiful Lake, the only Natural Lake in
Texas.

I highly recommend this Tour if your in the Area, or if not in the area, it's certainly worth the trip to take this wonderful adventure.

Kindest Regards,

Craig and Karen
