Our family of 5 had a great day on the tour. Rich was a great teacher and guide to gold panning. It is a fun excursion where you get to experience true gold panning. Along the way we also saw moose and King Salmon headed upstream. We were blessed with a warm clear day where Denali was visible. It was a terrific Alaska experience.

My 14 and 15 years old boys and I went on a full day gold panning with Rich. We had a
great time, Rich was not only a great gold prospector but also very knowledgeable about the history of the area, his love of nature and Alaska is infectious. We really enjoyed our day, learned a lot about gold panning and got an incredible and unique
Alaskan experience. Highly recommended!!

Richard brought my wife and I out too his spot, providing us with a ton of information about the area. We were on the look out for wild life, which we seen and enjoyed, Ha's a Great guide. The panning was a lot of fun because he had us in a stream finding it. We highly recommend "Denali Gold Tours" if you want a down to earth experience.

My husband & I booked this tour thru the front desk at the Mt. McKinley lodge right after arrival at the lodge. We traveled about 45 minutes outside of town into the wilderness to pan for gold. Rich, Jeremy and Reesey were very fun to hang out with for the afternoon. Rich gave us all great instructions on panning for gold! We were with one other couple so we all had lots of one on one training. We each found a few flakes of gold! Didn't get rich with a big nugget but we had a very rich experience and fun afternoon!! Thank you Rich & Jeremy
