We took both our adult sons and our 13 year-old grandson on this tour. They found it exciting and enjoyed riding the train down into the mine. The guide was retired from working the mine and was very knowledgeable..I would highly recommend it.

Well worth the experience. Jim, our tour guide had worked the mine, so had first hand experiences to share as well as a good sense of humour. So good to understand what created this very interesting town.
