  • A great place to spend a couple of hours. I particularly liked the underground experience of the mine. Kids will love panning for gold and our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great way of getting information across. There is decent parking too.
  • Absolutely awesome experience. The guide is so passionate and has a family history with the place. I never appreciated Thames until now. Will definately be back!
  • Excellent well worth it loved the tour and when the stamper was fired up you really got a feel for how it must hav been! Hats off to our guide thanks for your time and info Cheers
  • Great experience with a very knowledgeable and helpful tour guide.
  • Great tour, only $10 per adult, went into a goldmine from the 1800's, panned for gold and saw a stamper battery, historic photos and video, gold mining equipment. Worth the visit
