Found this by word of mouth. The tour was fun and informative. I felt like this was the real thing and not too commercial. The tour guide" Bob" was a lot of fun and made the tour interesting.

We took our kids to this mine and to pan for gold. The history was very interesting and it is a beautiful area. The staff were very friendly and the one man was a generational miner. Really enjoyed our time here.
