One of better tourist tours I have experienced. Given by experienced miners who actually demonstrate mining equipment. Learned much on this tour and had many impressions of mining dispelled. It only takes about 1 1/2 hours and starts every 1/2 hour so would be good...More

This was a true highlight of our adventure in the Wallace area. The tour was fantastic. The guide was extremely informative...before retiring he'd spent 25 years mining in the area. And he injected a bit of humor...loved it.
