We took the 6-hour train and silver mine tour. Joel, our guide, was knowledgeable and friendly. He took care of everything and added a lot of interesting sidelights. I highly recommend this tour!

This was an excellent day! We did the 6 hour tour with shopping and lunch. We were picked up on time at the site we were staying and took a very scenic drive to the “Top of the World” where we were able to take pictures at the Continental Divide. We then drove through a variety of avalanche areas and were told all about the way they are managed which was interesting having never had to deal with anything like that! Once we arrived at the train station, everything was taken care of by Joel! The train ride was nice and it was neat to learn the history of the train. After the train, we went to eat and the food was amazing! A leisurely lunch followed by shopping in Georgetown and yes, floats to finish the day! Our kids (ages 10 and 7) had a great time and our youngest fell asleep on the ride back. We definitely got to see and experience things we would have otherwise missed out on. Totally worth it!

Joel just gives you a ride to the train station. He plays middle man’s charges you 3 times the cost if you buy the train tickets from the station directly. I consider this a tourist trap don’t fall for it like we did. Not only does he show up in a terrible shuttle van with dents and weather striping falling off from everywhere he’s a terrible driver. We feared for our lives at a few points. Then I made the mistake of letting my keys fall out of my picked and he extorted me for money to let me have my keys back. STAY AWAY!!!!

Joel was great and knowledgeable. Gave us plenty of time and picked us up right from our airbnb. My Twin 4 year old and 2 year old enjoyed the train ride and ice creme in Georgetown. Some of the facts that Joel told us was very interesting. I would recommend this tour.

We did the 6-hour tour with 6 adults and 2 children. The adults ranged from 40-73 and the kids were 9&10. Joel (owner) picked us up from the house we were staying at and drove us to the train through a scenic route that included the Continental Divide. He was very friendly, on time and described what we were seeing the whole time. He took time to answer our questions. Joel has a wealth of knowledge of the area and its history. Joel made sure we knew what we were doing at the train depot, got us where we needed to be and told us what to expect when it was over. The train ride was fun and enjoyable. Joel took pictures of us while we were riding on the train from the side of the mountain. Half of our group did the mine tour which I highly recommend. It was so interesting and well done. The other half of our group met us in Georgetown where they had time to shop and look around. We enjoyed a root beer and got back in the van. On the way back we stopped to take pictures at the continental divide. I highly recommend this tour. It is the priciest thing we will do on this vacation but it was well worth it. We will remember this experience forever and I’m glad we did it as a tour and not just caught the train on our own.
