The guys at this place are GREAT! Our guide was a super awesomely knowledgeable geologist named Corey. He was amazing! He taught us all the history of the mine and the surrounding area. And he taught us how to look at the rock and see the seam of gold. We learned why "fools gold" really IS valuable. They actually let... More

We found this tour on Groupon and bought it for family that was visiting from out of town. Our group included 7 adults and 2 children, ages 2 and 4. When we got there, the cell service was poor so it was a struggle pulling up the Groupon voucher. (I recommend taking a screen shot before heading up the mountain.)... More

We visited the Hidee Gold mine with our two adult children. John was our guide and he was both informative and funny. I have a bit of claustrophobia, but I was comfortable during the tour as the walkways are large and only require ducking through a few parts. We enjoyed the stories and John giving a demonstration of how the... More

We spent there a very nice time, Dave was funny telling us stories about the life of miners in the mine, we left the mine very rich in gold, but trapped in the rock. Aleksandra & Dariusz

We loved them gold mine tour here. Chris was too notch. He took his time and carefully explained every facet of the mining operation from the early days to the present. His enthusiasm was contagious and we learned a lot from him. He was very willing to answer questions and included a sample to take home. We will have very... More

This is a good place to visit to learn about the Colorado gold rush and the details on how gold in mined. Hour long tour was informative. Best to tour in the morning when there is smaller groups. The mine is narrow and has low ceiling so large groups don't work so well.

John was a great tour guide- informative, safety minded, and funny too! We loved digging for gold too. The best part of the day was the abandoned mine buildings out back that you can visit and explore. Our 19 year old said it was the best place ever!

What made this place special was the tour guides. They were very patient with the kids and adults and did a great job explaining all facets of mining. The kids had a great time panning for gold as well as mining for gold while in the mine. The The place was very simple but made it more authentic as to... More

We went with our kids who are 9 and 11. They loved it. You go into an actual working mine for the tour and become a miner. You use a hammer and chisel and keep the pieces that fit in the bag provided to you. They have a dog, Noel, on the property. She is very well behaved and came... More
