Fantastic experience! Got to keep everything I found and even took a container of sifted rough home with me and I'm still enjoying the fun of finding sapphires! Bruce was extremely helpful and very nice. Loved talking with him and can't wait to go back!

By far one of the most fun adventures. You get to dig, wash, and sort the rock to find lots of sapphires. Bruce knows every rock on the place. Eric helps with everything. We had such a great time and we found lots of sapphires. Definitely we would do it again. Thanks for a
