I am thankful that we were able to base ourselves out of Wells to have 2 full days to take in Barkerville; it was necessary!
While we generally like to just do things on our own, I highly recommend starting out with the guided tour. Its a good way to quickly get your bearings not to mention entertaining.
We had so much fun, taking in the theater, stage coach rides, attending Chinese school, going to court in Richfield but the highlight for us was getting to talk to and see the new site for the archeology dig of Judge Begbie's home. We can't wait to go back to see what Mike, the archeologist, unearths!
Taking our time over 2 days was far better than a 2-3 hr. whirlwind experience.
