Mollie Kathleen is approximately 1 1/2 hours from Colorado Springs. It is an especially beautiful drive during the Fall season. The Autumn colors are spectacular. I have toured the gold mine two times. I will do it again. It's is so fascinating and different. The tour guides are knowledgeable, and take time to answer all questions. The ride to get... 更多
According to my children, ages 10 and 12, this was the highlight of our Colorado vacation. Driving from over an hour away, I was nervous we would not make the tour since they did not take online or phone reservations....we arrived and purchased the last 4 tickets!!! If you are at all claustrophobic this is not the tour for you!... 更多
My husband and I enjoyed this tour so much! The tour guide Steven was so knowledgeable. His father originally worked the mines. He had a classic sense of humor. And I just enjoyed everything about it. The walk was easy. And the ride was fun too. Going down the shaft though can be a little scary! I would go again!!!!... 更多
First they have you wear hard hats and if you want you can put on mining clothes. They take you down on an elevator 1,000 feet which is scary.

I had not been to cripple creek in 50 years as a kid. I thought the tour lead by Steve the miner was very interesting and very informative in 1 hour. I would recommend that you plan to take the tour before it's gone someday. There is still a lot of gold in those hills.
Just an hour or so from Colorado Springs. It tour lasts about an hour or so and is well worth the money. People of all ages were with us and everyone enjoyed it. The young kids had tons of questions and they were all answered clearly and with patience.
We waited till 945, first tour supposed to be at 10 am. When my husband went in the office the girl said no tours today. When I asked why she couldn't give me a answer. Just said thats what she was told. Very long drive to see this so we were very disappointed. It was not raining or snowing that... 更多
