I can't remember the tour guide's name but he was very good (and handsome) so it made it better being a single mom. My teenagers really enjoyed it. The gold mining part was included in the tour and I can understand why. The kids were less than impressed with that part. I think they feel like they are going to... More

Loved being able to go down in the mine and see all the old tools. We learned a lot about how things used to be. The gem mining was great. We discovered many large rocks. Much more than any of the other mining competitor. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

This tour was really good, into one of the few mines in the east you can visit. Our guide was informative and comical. I would recommend this tour for young and old alike. If you are in the area, this is a must do!

We did this on a rainy day and it sure fit the bill. Gary helped us with our mining of the gold and gemstones and was our tour guide into the mine. You can tell he enjoys doing this stuff, and he makes sure all have a good time.

We enjoyed this tour on a rainy day. We started the visit panning for gold since we had to wait a few minutes for the next tour. They let you watch a two minute video and then you try it for yourself. It was hard work! My hands were freezing and my arms were tired but I had three pieces... More

Great trip! You get to go underground to see an actual mine that has produced gold in the past. You find yourself wanting to dig around down there to see if you can find any more gold! When you come out, be sure to buy a bucket of gems to try your hand at panning.

We recently visited the mine with a large group of 7th and 8th graders as part of a four day Georgia Tour. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. One of our girls left her wallet at the gift shop and not only did they call our tour guide to check if it belonged to our group, but one of... More
