We really enjoyed our tour here...we were surprised to see so much original equipment in working order (including the elevator that will take you 1000 feet below!) and to get a good description & demonstration from a former miner whose father mined in the era of the Mollie Kathleen. An excellent history lesson & very fascinating to learn how they... 更多
Our guide was Mark and he did an amazing job in explaining the methods and laws of gold mining. Watching the actual equipment used from over 100 years ago was quite informative. All through the tour I kept thinking of how difficult life was for our forefathers. This type of work was backbreaking and dangerous - all for 50 cents... 更多
My friend and I were in the Springs for a girls weekend and decided to visit this mine. We took the tour which was so much fun!! The tour guide was a young man who hailed from a mining family. He was so funny and informative! The elevator ride down and up was so weird and fun and slightly scary... 更多
We toured the mine as a family and found it very informative and s lot of fun. Our tour guide was fun and extremely knowledgeable. I am a little claustrophobic so the trip down the shaft in a small cage was a bit scary, but it's over before you know it. I definitely recommend this tour!!
Don't forget your jacket because it's cold in Cripple Creek this time of year plus it's cold down in the mine. This was a good time; going down a 1000 feet ; plus actually seeing the way gold mining was done years ago plus how it progressed. Our guide was extremely informative as well as fun. Don't miss out on... 更多
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour through the mine. 1000 below the surface, our guide demonstrated many pieces of equipment used during the mining operations. Our guide was knowledgeable and obviously experienced. Well worth the price if you enjoy this type of adventure. Make sure to dress appropriately as you are in a mine.
This was a great tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had actual mining experience. He worked hard to explain thing fully and was very open to question.
Our family has toured several mines, coming from a line of mining engineers and managers. This was by far the best tour, conducted by an enthusiastic and very knowledgeable miner who "filled in" on his day off. His passion and knowledge for his craft were evident, and made for an engrossing hour. The gift shop has a comprehensive selection of... 更多
