I did the mine tour earlier last week.... Really enjoyed it. Craig shared so much of the mining history in a way that made it fun to learn.

How often do you get to visit a real gold mine? The tour through this small mine was exciting and fun. The tour guide was well informed about all aspects of mining and the history of this area. We were lead through narrow, winding shafts, following tracks of mining carts. We stopped frequently to see different features of the mine... More

We visited this mine in December 2014 and was so worth it! Our tour lasted about two hours and was so full of information. Our tour guide Craig was awesome! We enjoyed all of his first hand stories while growing up with the family mine. Walking into this mine was an experience you will never forget!

We visited this mine in early November 2014, walking up from the town's main street, and arrived just in time for a 4-guest tour which was amazing! It lasts a good hour and goes deep underground so you can see the quartz seams and the equipment the miners used. The guide is steeped in its history and brings it all... More

We enjoyed the very low key, but highly informed tour of these mines. As I am 6'2", you need to duck periodically to get through the tunnels, but the exploration was fun. Our guide was casual but answered all questions as they came and he knew his business.

Very pleasant and informative tour of the gold mine, the best thing we did on our trip to Julian, highly recommend to visit if you're in town, the fee of $10 is a steal for what you're getting in opinion...

This tour is fantastic - only $10 per person and you get to go way down and thru the huge mine, its amazing. The tour guide was a grandson of the owner who saved the mine and is extremely knowledgeable about mining. I LOVED THIS TOUR

Lynn and I recently drove to Julian, CA to get out of the hustle bustle of the San Diego area. We Googled for things to do in Julian and the Eagle Mine popped up. We decided that we needed to do that. The road up to the mine was a little bit weird, but not quite 4 wheel drive. We... More
