  • We enjoyed the very interesting tour of this gold mine. Our 11 year old kids also enjoyed the tour. Tour guide was very friendly and engaging. Tour price was very fair.

  • We were very impressed by Greg's guided tour of the mine. There were only 5 of us (my partner and me, plus a group of 3) as the weather was poor. The tour was really interesting- we live in an old mining area in the UK and have been on a few mine tours, but with this being a working gold mine Greg’s first hand experience brought home the challenges of getting the rock out of the mine, and the gold out of the rock. Lots of questions were asked, and Greg was enthusiastic about explaining the ins and outs of gold mining from the 1860s to today. Highly recommended experience, tour was said to be an hour but we were very well entertained for an hour and a half.
  • We had a fantastic time on this tour. We needed a down day after skiing and decided to take our whole group, ages 0-62. Everyone had a blast (pun intended). Tour guide did an excellent job of engaging everyone, showing how the mine works, and talking about the history of the mines. Was definitely worth it, and great that we didn’t have to travel far from where we were staying- was right there in Georgetown.
