We experienced a last minute 4-hour guided tour on the Minnesota River on a beautiful fall day. Our guides - River Ricky and Jamie were great. We stopped at an island where Ricky started a fire and warmed up homemade chicken-sausage-shrimp gumbo over rice that was more than delicious. These guys are the real deal. Absolutely excellent.
