  • It was a last minute outing and we really enjoyed our adventurer. The tour isn't very long to bad you can't go further into the mine. But understandable for safety reasons. But the tour is still reall...  more »
  • The tour guide really enjoys his job and was very informative but the best part was the Chipmunks that sit right in your hand and eat the sunflowers they give you!  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.
  • It was amazing. I loved learning about the time. Im going to have fun trying to figure out what this fiberglass looking stuff is. Lets hope i can figure it out for them. I loved the tour guide and all the unique rocks.
  • 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!
