We chose the Prospector's tour for our family with 2 teens (18 & 14). Our family ended up with a personal tour. Jennifer did a great job explaining the history of the mine and sharing stories of research she has conducted about the mine. It was nice that so much of the mine remains as it was left.

There's a lot be be learned and enjoyed about the tour. We took the medium tour. The guide was knowledgeable and was a good source of information. Reaching the mine entrance involves riding in an army vehicle over a road that is quite rough, so hang on to the roof straps! Walking in the mine can be slightly difficult as... More

The Prospector's tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable (especially considering she was still in high school). The headlamps provided adequate light and a genuine feel of what the miners went through 100 years ago. The miners got paid a dollar a day but had to purchase a candle for 10 cents.

My family went on a tour today. The kids loved going through the caves, even my 4 year old. The kids and adults had fun exploring and learning about the mines. We had our own tour with Jim who was very knowledgeable about the mines and answered all our questions. It was chilly so at least wear a jacket and... More

Went for the afternoon and the the Prospector's tour with 2 adults, and 3 kids (10, 8, and 6). Loved the mine and our guide was great (especially considering she was still in high school). It was worth the extra money for the longer tour. Will come back when the kids are older to do the rappelling tour to the... More

Went on the miners tour. Our tour guide was a local with a lot of knowledge if the local history and history of the mine itself. Definetly should bring warm clothes. It was 85 and humid when we got there and it was 45 inside the mine.

We did the Miners tour. Wear pants and a warm shirt/jacket. It is cold and you will get very damp. You will get wet shoes too.

Highly recommend this mine. We did the Prospectors tour which was approx. 1 1/2 hours - very much worth it. James ( I think) was our guide and he was super - very knowledgeable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour! We took 2 teenage girls who didn't seem too excited about our forced family fun time option for the day, but in the end they left saying it was "so cool". Score one for the parents! Our guide, Hannah, was very knowledgeable and very interesting. She took her time and answered all of our questions.... More
