We took our parents to the mine while they were visiting from the Bay Area. We had a fantastic tour with Keith that was informational and fun and went further into the mine than we expected! Highly recommend!

We do lots of tours as a family and I am here to say that Marco was the best tour guide we have ever had! He was polite, funny, and informative. He asked my kids a lot of questions and was very engaging. He was willing to answer any questions we had about the past, present, and future of the mine itself. We learned a lot of gold facts and even a few jokes.

We took our kids (ages from 20 to 8) and did the mine tour and panning for gold. Miner Keith was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the history and even current operations at Country Boy. He was also able to help the kids identify some of the crystals they found while panning for gold. We will definitely come back and try the sledding and sleigh ride in the winter too!

This was a highlight on our trip to Breckenridge and a cool experience to go back in time! Our tour guide Cody was excellent! He really knew the history, let us use one of the old mining tools and got to get the feel of what life was like as a gold miner. Plus at the end of the tour Cody taught us how to pan for gold and we got to try it outside the mine! Definitely go experience it for yourself, it’s cool!
