It was a little pricey but we enjoyed it. The tour guide was fun and engaging. Precious was his name. He made the tour. The kids really enjoyed it.

My brother and I made an unexpected stop at this mine. We panned for gold and took the tour on January 11th. It was chilly, but was absolutely worth it! We saw things we'd only ever seen on the Discovery Channel... cave salamanders, bats, and of course, stalactites and stalagmites, etc. Our guide, JD, was one of the best we'd... More

There are many gold panning places, but none have a mine tour like this. This is the place to go. They have a store to purchase souvenirs and gold mining memorabilia. My family had a great time. My 7 and 11 year old were captivated throughout the miner tour , definitely take the tour. The guide was knowledge of the... More

If you’re staying in or near Dahlonega, Georgia, go here. If Dahlonega is en route to another destination, consider stopping here. And if you have young children, it’s a must. Seriously, it's that good. I know what you’re thinking – a gold mine? I was hoping it could hold the interest of our preschool daughter for a few minutes, but... More

The guide really skipped a lot of facts from our previous visit (he was the big guy). He didn't tell us anything about the bats until we mentioned it, and didn't mention what the rail cars were down in the mine, or the old stick coming out of the wall. Panning for gold is always fun, but I really don't... More

Let's face it: there's not a whole bunch to do in Dahlonega. While visiting, friends of ours that were also visiting Dahlonega suggested that we go to the Consolidated Mines with them and their 5 year old child. We went along, not expecting too much. The tour was very interesting, and our guide, Johnny, was a master of the mine's... More

I went with my engineer husband and 12 year old daughter, so we were kind of a tough crowd to please. It was surprisingly fun and interesting. The guide was a good story teller. and I felt like I learned a lot and the tour kept us all entertained.

The tour is the best part of this attraction. We went here to humor my husband on our anniversary weekend before our winery visits and were pleasantly surprised. The tour was really interesting as you get to go into the mines and experience another era. It was great for kids of all ages, too, so we'd like to bring ours... More
