Had a great time, very informative and very fun! Everyone got about $12 worth of gold and the tour even included beer tasting for the adults and root beer tasting for the kids! The only reason I didn't give them a rating of 5 was due to the lunch food. It wasn't a great selection and the hot options were... More

This is a neat little place outside of town that offers a lot to do. We started by mining for gold (found $25 worth), then toured the dredge which is short, but interesting. Next we had a fantastic BBQ lunch with drinks from the brewery. The kids loved seeing the sled dogs, learning about the Iditarod race from one who... More

We booked the Gold Rush Sled Dogs and White Pass Adventure tour from our cruise ship and went directly there by bus from the boat in the morning. We were given a presentation by Matt who is extremely knowledgeable about this sport and who has a delightful personality with a great sense of humor. He explained in detail the preparations...

A fraternal cruise with family members led us to this the little gem of an attraction, the staff was excellent and provided the entrainment. A little history mixed with some science and a bag of dirt, now you're taking part in the history of panning for gold. the kids had a great time, This attraction has one of the best... More

We had such a great time panning for gold listening to all the stories, guys liked the samples of the brewer. Seeing the sled dogs and puppies. You can't help but know these people love their jobs in telling us a lot of great stuff about Skagway. There was even a bar-b-que at the end. This was so worth the... More

I went here with a large group of people from a cruise ship. The staff was amazing to us and very patient! The tour was filled with fun facts and actors with great sense of humor. Matt, who gave the dog sled demo was amazing - I never knew how much work it would take to car for the dogs... More

Private function at this location was great. Learning the intricacies of the Iditarod was well worth the tour. The food was great as well. Enjoyed the gold digging experience but would not do that again. Only dredged $7.83 worth of gold LOL.

We loved this place - not because of the gold panning - because of the staff - the gold dredge tour history and the AMAZING Dog Sled tour - we got to meet a man that has ran the Iditarod and see the dogs, his sled and puppies! Highly recommend this place - so much fun. We also had dinner... More

We (my wife and two children -- eight and five years old) came here as a shore excursion on a cruise and could have been more happy and satisfied. Our particular set-up had us listen to a talk from Matt (a dog musher), who was terrific, before he introduced us to his dogs (and eight puppies) and gave a demonstration.... More

Thanks for your awesome review! We're glad you enjoyed the tour! Matt is an amazing tour guide with a lot of great stories and interesting information about the Iditarod. He's so good he can almost distract you from the burning desire to hold a puppy! Also, congratulations on finding $40 of gold! That's quite an achievement. Great work! More
