Pulled over on a whim to check it out and so glad we did. Our 10 year old loved panning for gold. Really an informative tour. Tanner our tour guide was great. Fun way to spend an hour for not a lot of money!

One of the more inexpensive activities we did, but by far a worth while experience! The tour was informative and entertaining. Panning for gold was so fun! Gold guaranteed! Hailee was a great tour guide and panning instructor.

I enjoyed the short tour, but it is a very small place. Seeing the mine workers working conditions was quite interesting. If you have time, I would recommend it-it's cheap and gives you a little insight. We panned for gold at the end of the tour and my young children loved that. We came home with a little vile of...

First time touring a gold mine. I thought it was great, my husband and kids thought so too. We were even able to keep my 18 month old in his umbrella stroller. Our tour guide Matt was super, he had a great sense of humor and very informative. The kids got to pan for gold at the end. Even though... More

Took the family on the tour and panned for gold afterwards. Had a great time, very interesting and informative. The kids got a kick out of the total darkness and learning how to pan for gold. With the AAA discount it was an inexpensive hour of fun.

Nathan was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable about the mine. Mine was a good place to see what it was like in the day.

We were looking for a place to learn to pan and this fit the bill! Just off of Deadwood's Main Street (not far at all, don't blink or you'll miss it) this place offers tours of a real gold mine and lessons on panning. Our 6 year old loved it. I think my husband got pretty into the panning too.... More

We were very impressed with the knowledge our tour guide had. All our hearts skipped a beat when the lights flickered when we were deep in the mine. The young kids liked panning for gold.
