We really enjoyed our tour with Lenny. We were very pleasantly surprised by the tour-it was fascinating. Definitely worth the trip over from Coeur d'Alene!

From the trolley ride to the mine tour it was good tour. Kids learned some things and so did the adults! Plus they had fun too.

This is an excellent tour! From Fred to Marty at the mine, you'll learn and laugh more than you expected. Both are extremely knowledgeable about Wallace and mining. Marty is hilarious!
