This was definitely the highlight of our weekend in Teller County. The tour was fascinating and we got to see some amazing views from the top of the mountain. Rodney was our tour guide, and he was excellent. I would go again if we are ever back in Teller County.
This was a wonderful tour! Rob, our guide/driver, was very well informed about mining operations & seemed to love what he does--educating visitors about gold mining. We covered a large physical area in our tour & even witnessed a "shot"(an explosion) from a safe vantage point. We saw one of the extremely large mining trucks(out of service) up close & personal & were able to climb up into it if we wished. This tour was a great value too. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I highly recommend this tour.
I've driven by this gold mine for many years during visits to Victor and Cripple Creek but not until this tour did I realize the complexity and size of the operation of the open pit mine. Rob was a great tour guide, giving us a good mix of history, science, operation and technology. Who knew it worked like a bowl of Frosted Flakes?! I highly recommend this tour any time you're in the area!
Awesome mine tour! Very informative and safe. They make a big deal about safety.
The lady working was very sweet to my daughter and made it a great experience for her .
