Awesome tour
, Jun 2022
We learned a lot about mining. And enjoyed trying panning for gold. Feed the donkeys were an extra bonus.

The Donkeys LOVE being fed - so I'm sure they would leave you a great review (if their hooves weren't too big to type) We are so happy that you had fun with us - we love giving our guests a great collection of memories (and a fun day out) so your feedback makes us really happy.

Great experience! To note, the directions are a bit tricky. There were no flags, just put the mine into your maps and go! Ignore the rest.

Thanks so much for coming! For some reason Apple maps dumps you several hundred yards short of the mine (we have told them lots) so best just to put the mine name in. We're around 400 yards from the end of the free purple bus route. Thanks so much for your very kind review and for sharing vacation time with us :)
Fun, historical tour
