  • This was so much fun! I would definitely recommend visiting. My husband and I were on the first tour which was small. It was perfect! We had a very knowledgeable guide. The most fun was actually chipping off our own gold samples. So much fun!!!
  • I went with my 7 year old twins on the mine tour and cannot day enough positive things about the experience. Tour guide was very informative and entertaining and kept everyone engaged, young and old. At the end of the mine you are even given a chisel and hammer to try your hand at mining and take home your own findings. Thanks to the consistent temperature in the mine, this is something that can be enjoyed year round. I hope to come back in the summer to try our hand at panning for gold.
  • This review has been a long time coming. This place is awesome! Our guides were very helpful and knowledgeable of the mine and it's history. They own it too. The whole mine is lit up inside and they have carpet down the center of some of the paths for traction. They also discussed their future plans for expansion of the tour such as opening up multiple levels and even a non-lit tour for adults (use head lamps only like how miners used to work- would be awesome). Pricing is reasonable and the tour lasted about an hour give or take. Don't worry about the weather if visiting; the mine is the same temperature inside year round. The location is perfect and right down the road from a bunch of casinos. The entrance to the drive is easy to miss so slow down once you get close. The drive is reasonably steep and bumpy. If you're coming in the winter this could be a concern, but in my experience with about 6" of snow on the ground, as long as you have snow tires, at least front wheel drive (4WD or AWD would be preferred), and know how to drive in the snow, you should be fine. I took it in a Hyundai Sonata rental car with all season tires. Had to turn traction control off to make it the last bit, but it all worked out. 10/10 would visit again.
  • My girlfriend and I had a great time at the Hidee Gold Mine. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Tour was a lot of fun and we even got to mine our own little piece to take home. Definitely worth the drive from Denver especially if you've never been on a mine tour.
  • This was an incredible experience. The guide was knowledgeable and passionate and answered all our questions. He shared the history of the mine, how they mined in centuries past vs. how it's done today. We actually mined the gold with a pick and small sledge hammer and were able to take a small treasure home! We were shown how to pan for gold as well, which is much harder than it looks! Contrary to one review, we were able to pay with credit card without any problem. The cost was well worth the experience! Thanks for an INCREDIBLE experience!
