I've visited this gold mine three times now, and it's always a new and exciting experience each and every time. I would recommend this to families, couples, or even to experience alone.

We absolutely loved our trip here and our guide, Adam, was just the best! He made it entertaining for the whole family. It's definitely worth the trip. The mining for gold was also fun for all of us.

The tour started with panning for gold and finding gems. Both a little hokey but fun. Kids would LOVE this place - I know we adults did! JD... More

I have never done this before so I found it fascinating. If this is the way they had to find gold, they have my respect because... More
