A quick brief tour and history of the Gold Mine. Very informative guide. Our group was maybe a little too big as there were a lot of small children that had no interest.

Jackin was our guide and he was knowledgeable and funny. The cost was $5 for seniors and we spent and enjoyable hour walking thru the mine. It's a short and easy walk.

It was so interesting to see a real gold mine and do some gold panning ourselves! We had a great time, our guide was excellent, and so informative. Parents must bring their children for a gold mine adventure!

The whole cost for the tour and gold panning should be less then $15 per person depending upon the age. It is a really I expensive side trip.

Wheelchairs have gone through the mine. The first door is too small to accommodate but you can carry the chair up the stairs and fold it through the doorway and it will fit through the mine.
