Had a great time
Jun 2021 • Family
Thoroughly enjoyed the mine tour. Don’t wear flip-flops, it is wet and muddy and slick! More “adventurous” of an experience than we had thought it would be, but that was a good thing! The shop was fun too. The staff was happy to tell us about gems they had found. Pretty jewelry too, if you want to get something unique that you know exactly where it came from and have a neat story. I have forgotten our guide’s name, but he was great. Definitely recommend.

Miner Cam was an excellent and entertaining tour guide. So much information about how mining was completed. So much more to see in the next phase of the mine! Pan mining for gold was fun!

Great family historic activity
May 2021 • Family
Enjoyed this visit with grandparents and grandkids. Tour guide Isaac did a great job of interesting the whole group. You walk about a quarter mile, up and down stairs and ramps. The tour talks about the first gold rush. Dahlonega became a focal point with its own mint and miles of tunnels. Good value. At the end of the tour you can find a few golden flecks as you pan for gold. Great activity for the whole family.

Very Interesting
May 2021
Didn't think I would enjoy going down into the mine, but I have to say it was very interesting to learn about the conditions the miners worked in. All members of our family enjoyed it, and would recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Made the drive worth it
May 2021 • Family
Sounds like a tourist trap, but it's far from it! The mine tour was awesome, guide was good. Nice explanation of some of the tools, but missed a lot of the history and the mining process that really would have made it exceptional. Paning for gold was fun (not every pan is a winner so have fun with just doing it). The mine tour isn't strenuous at all, but if your kids have to be carried, it can be difficult.
