Fun adventure inside real Gold mine. The people were very friendly and helpful. Dress warm or bring coat as its constant temperature (46F or 8C) in the mine. I enjoyed the Gold panning and got several real flakes if Gold!

We came on our own (got the local's rate, versus a cruise ship rate). Paid $49 per adult, $24.50 per child.
