We stopped here on a cross country road trip and found the staff to be very friendly and knowledgeable about Golden area but we wanted BC information and a provincial map which we were unable to obtain. The visitor centre is also not well marked, or we missed the signs, and we had to ask a local for directions. BC has so much to offer and we felt a bit disappointed with our first impression of this beautiful province.

Thank David B

Hello David,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback. Our Visitor Centre is brand new (we have been open for less than two weeks) and therefore we are still trying to improve our signage and resources. We are glad that you were able to get directions from a local and hope that it will be easier to find in the future.

As we are a local visitor centre, our focus of expertise and resources are on Golden and the surrounding area, however we strive to help our visitors find the information that they are looking for or direct them to a place that can better meet their needs. We apologize that we were not able to provide what you were looking for and thank you for your feedback and your patience as we settle into our new space.
