  • I haven't had the experience yet but I was trying! The website is poorly organized. There is no information about whether you need to turn up by a certain time for tours during the summer. There is no way to contact the company on the site; no email address, no phone number. The phone number I found online rang but there was an automated message not even indicating if you've reached the right place. Let's see if they ever call me back... Here's my business advice......fix your website.....we have decided to go to the Waihi gold mine; it's more expensive but the site tells me everything and I can contact them easily for more info.
  • Cool experience going into the mine. Interesting history behind the gathering of gold.
  • Great tour, only $15 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
  • Well worth the price... Got to see the mining equipment & experience a real underground mine...
