This was very fun for the kids they came out with lots of information. The tour guide said she was new but really knew her stuff.

Ask for Spencer. Very entertaining yet informative tour. It is obvious that Spencer enjoys his job. Highly recommend this fun tour.

The 40 minute tour of an actual mine gives you perspective of what went into the day to day life of a miner. Although this mine yielded minimal silver, the concept of the drudgery is there.

Everything in Virginia City is reasonably priced so go with your family and friends to enjoy the beautiful scenery and support the local businesses as you have fun and learn something new about miners and settlers.

If your in Virginia City, take this tour. It’s not very expensive and it’s fun. My kids are 15 and 18 years old. I wish I could remember our tour guides name but he was amazing. Truly knowledgeable about the city and the gold mine. When he offers to wear a hard hat, I would recommend it. I thought I didn’t need it and within 10 feet I hit my head. It turned out I was not the cool dad in the group. Short tour but fun. You can walk up and pre-pay for a tour, there were many throughout the day. Enjoy the mine.
