Had a great time on this tour. The tour guide gave a lot of information and was entertaining. Going down Into the mine was great and it was fun to pan for gold after. Would recommend this stop.

This is great exercise and interesting in the Summer when you might want to cool down. You have to walk down into the mine, then back up again. You can pan for gold and jewels!

The Consolidated Gold Mine is an excellent visit, stepping back in time to experience gold mining from the late 1800s and early 1900s. The underground tour is excellent and well worth the entrance fee, the 30-40 minute tour had an great guide who was very...More
