We had an amazing time with our little spelunking hats on, they are quite a necessity. The 18 year old boy that did our tour was mind blowing, went over the top with all the information he shared. Although its a short and sweet kind of trip we learned so much in that time. It's great for people who get... More

Fun tour of an original gold mine that was interesting and very reasonably priced at $3 for under 17 and $5 for adults. Tours take around 45 minutes. You can pan for gold too!

We enjoyed our tour of the gold mine. Tanner did a good job educating and keeping everyone entertained. It is not a huge or active mine but it was definitely worth the stop to learn more about the history of the area and gold mining. We had kids with us so we opted to include the gold panning experience for... More

Nice lil place to drop in for a few hours in Deadwood. The kid running the tour was named Tanner, and we had fun on the tour, as well as panning for gold with him. Go.

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
