Captain Phillips was a good good guide. He joked around a lot and took us around Lake Hamilton. I highly recommend this to her if you're in the Hot Springs area. Great time and economically feasible :-)

The history of the area was quite intriguing. Captain Philips was very consistent with his facts, and his comedy made our weekend. I’m not the type to leave reviews anywhere, but this experience was worth giving one. Captain Philips is the GOAT.
