  • Short trip with a lot of history well worth the dollars to visit something like this and it's a terrific escape for the summer heat. Our tour guide was absolutely hilarious and very knowable. It a must visit when your visiting a town like this.
  • This review is about a month or so late since I've been super busy, but great place! Lots of history. The owner gave me a private tour due to time constraints and even dropped me and my parents off to the railroad depot where we had to depart. Would definitely recommend to a friend. Here's the pic of me he took in the mine.
  • This was a great tour. The owner is a true historian. This is a wet mine so wear proper shoes. I would take kids on this tour they are sure to love it.
  • We took a very informative tour today. Our guide knew the local mining history and all aspects of mining. It you want to get an idea how hard it was to be a miner in the 1860's this is the tour for you.
  • Interesting, short, underground mine tour. Not worth a trip, but maybe worth doing if in Virginia City. Wear shoes you don't mind getting muddy, they don't have anything to rinse with. Cash/check only. They charge extra if using check. Dollar for water.
