  • This tour was great, it was one of the highlights of our trip to Ky and TN...
  • Recently toured Portal 31 and it was amazing. If you enjoy small town America put this place on your list. The tour lasts about 30 minutes and worth every penny. Had lunch across the street at Lamp Coffee House. Stayed in area for 3 hours and reflected on the town and the people of Lynch. They'll make a comeback and I'm rooting for you. Excellent day trip from the southeast.
  • This tour underground was a highlight of our 2 week vacation. The animated characters were entertaining and the information about the coal mining industry, unions, mechanization and hardships were well displayed while we sat in a small rail car.
  • Very Interesting history tour of the coal miners.
  • Nice, when we were there several years ago.
