We took the Prospectors Tour on Friday, October 2nd, Jim was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions, and took pictures of everyone in the group. We learned so much about the history of mining in the Copper Country. I highly recommend this tour and think it was well worth the cost.

My husband and I went on the Trammer's Tour with Brandon (who was, himself, a phenomenal tour guide). It was just the two of us, and they took us right out. It was great! Brandon told us countless stories about the history of the mine and explained all of the relics and artifacts - as well as educating us on... More

We had a great time at the Adventure Mine. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone got to wear a miner's hat with light. The kids thought it was great exploring the mine. We did the Trammer's tour, but we felt we should have taken the longer Prospector's tour.

My "action and adventure" family of 6 (kids are 8, 9, 11 & 13) learned about the history and working conditions of the miners as well as the local culture. The kids stayed engaged in the tour for the duration! My advice is to dress in layers! Gets cold but definitely worth it! Our guide, Tom was awesome, mixing in... More

We arrived later than planned and they were still willing to take us on a longer tour. We had a great guide who was knowledgeable about the mines and history of the land. The owner was able to provide even more background and stayed open later talking to us about the property. It was an awesome experience!! My kids were... More

My husband and I decided to do a mine tour as the weather was rainy and cold and wasn't the best for other outdoor activities. We arrived at 9am when they opened and chose to do the Prospector's tour which was $25.00 per person. We started the tour right away, with just the two of us and our guide, Josie.... More

We took the Miners tour, there are different levels to choose. Ours included repelling a shaft to Level 2 of the mine. I've never done it before..you have to be at least 13 to do this. Our 17 year-olds couldn't stop smiling and talking about this experience. The guided walk is like walking thru history and gives you a sense... More

Our tour guide Jim was fabulous! He was extremely informative and knowledgeable about the mine. His concern for safety was genuine and was always considered first. We had a group of seven, three adults and four children and there was never a moment where I felt anxious, uneasy or rushed. My family has traveled throughout the United States and out... More
