    This tour is $10 to see just the mine and $10 just to pan for gold and $15 for both. The tour guide was great but this is more about funny stories and less about history. It literally takes 15 min and...  more »

    I only panned for gold and found it pretty terrible. First off they bumped up the price over what was advertised. That alone is enough for me to never come back. But the panning its self was awful. The site has trash everywhere. The trash can we found was overflowing. I would give it less stars if I could.

    Pretty interesting. Our guide was energetic and knew how to tell a story. The panning for gold and other good finds was pretty neat as well. Kids had fun and I got some good photos. You could spend a couple of hours here easily. Try for 3 hours if you can.

    Great place to be! Love the place and Alisha was an amazing tour guide and mentor as was Al...the owner of the phoenix gold mine! Bring the whole familey! You'll have a blast and maybe...jusst mabey...you'll find some gold ore while panning in the small stream or creek right across from the mine! Good luck and thanks for checking the place out! See ya soon! Keith

    Awesome little mining tour, fun for all ages. Our tour guide, Hank, was hilarious and knowledgeable. Cool getting to hear the history of the mine and getting to gold pan afterwards. Definitely a fun place!
