  • a wonderful place to visit, and you actually go into the mines itself, its a private owned mine and the house around the place is a most to see inside and out. they have antics of cars and trucks scattered around the place too, great photography to be had :

  • James did a great job showing us Eldorado Canyon. It is a real hidden gem. He really knows the area and helped divert us to avoid traffic which was greatly appreciated. The Techatticup Mine was eye opening and the guide had extensive knowledge of the mine and how miners worked in the mines. It really dispelled a lot of myths. The only thing that I would change is if the mine tour went more into the mine. The mine was much larger than what we were shown, but we did not get to see more. It was still good though.

  • Loved this tour

  • This was something really different and very enjoyable.

  • This tour was awesome!!!! We actually went into a gold mine!!!! Saw the Hoover Dam and also the Colorado River..Would recommend this tour!!! We all loved it.
