  • We thought our tour guide, Allen, was terrific. The tour was interesting and fun! We panned for gold and fed the chipmunks at the end of the tour.  more »

  • I found these folks on Google and it lived up to everything. The Tour Guide Gabe was just awesome and really brought the mining story to life. Super friendly, easy to get to, very interesting and not expensive. The road leading in was in no way treacherous or hard to drive and rental car would have been fine. Well worth the time if you are in Denver. 45 minutes from the airport!
  • Maybe not the largest but definitely the most interesting mine tour I've ever taken on a small scale. Dave knows his stuff and this is an incredibly important mine in Colorado's history. Very nice people just a couple miles from town I highly recommend.
