“Very Interesting and Informative”
Reviewed August 5, 2010

Many people don't think that Timmins offers much for the vacationer outside of a beautiful natural environment, and associated outdoor activities. On a rainy day, or even on a beautiful sunny day, the gold mine tour will be a very worthwhile couple of hours. A visitor can't leave the tour without a good understanding of the earlier days of underground mining. Tour guides provided good stories, knowledge, and humor to the tour. I often get bored at museums, but this tour is interactive and interesting. Be aware that it will be cold underground, even on the hottest of days, but the tour will provide you with full mining clothes, boots, and other accessories - just like earlier days.
