We went with our daughter and granddaughter and everyone enjoyed the tour. John, a retired miner was a great guide inside the mine. Our granddaughter loved panning for gold after the mine tour. Bring a jacket. It's in the 40s inside the mine.

The cost was around $89 each and the tour lasted around 2 1/2 hours. I think we only had 10 - 15 people on the tour.
