There was a motorcycle rally in town so we only got to do the Rail ride. The volunteer conductor was excellent. I felt the cost was a bit much but it was a really informative ride. Beautiful country getting there.

Excellent if you are into learning and observing how current pit mining for gold takes place. Impressive massive operation with huge equipment used to move and grind a mountain and subsequently chemically remove gold from the ground rocks. Not an attraction for ecotourists or small...More

Warning! You need to make advanced reservations, which I did not. Fortunately for me, someone who had reservations didn't make it so I was able to get a seat at the last moment. The tour is provided by CC&V mine personnel who, I believe, donate...More
