This tour is well worth the trip! Brian was our Tour Guide who was extremely knowledgeable about the mine and the history. The mine is 43 degrees but they give you heavy jackets to wear but still plan accordingly. You will not be disappointed.

Enthusiastic staff, informative tours and great visuals. Biggest machines that I have ever seen and the tour of the mine itself was just great.

There is no need to reserve tickets, but wherever you travel, you never know if the same great idea occurred to everyone else at the same time. It's a good idea for any kind of tour to make sure you're there in plenty of... More
