We had a great time with the mine tour, so glad we did it. Wished we had more time to do the panning, but the tour itself was great and the guide was awesome! He was super excited about his tour which made us more excited!!

Our our guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the panning for gold tutorial/experience after the tour. My boys found copper and fools gold while panning. We all used a giant slide to exit to the parking lot.

We loved our tour guide in the mine and the fellas really enjoyed their extreme sledding rides. We were lucky to have some fresh snow!! There are a lot of great places for pictures as well.

This was awesome!! I thought it would be too cold to enjoy the experience but the tour guide really made it enjoyable and had a lot of knowledge. Our kids ages 13,15 and 16 were engaged with the history of mini g and really loved it! I recommend!!!

My wife and I visited the Country Boy Mine in Breckenridge for my birthday. Mike from California was our tour guide, and two folks (a guy and a girl) from Texas were working the reception area. The reception workers were awesome, showing us old photos of the miners, and repeatedly cracking jokes with us. Mike the tour guide was super knowledgeable about the mine, and unlike in some other places where you take tours and feel like your guide couldn’t care less about the source material, he really seemed to dig mining and know a lot about the subject matter. He also made the tour very fun for us by showing us how the 120-year old pneumatic drill worked and how the miners worked in super scary conditions pretty much in darkness (one candle doesn’t make a sufficient light source in my eyes). Those miners were some crazy brave men, and Mike made us really appreciate the extent of their labors. Thank you all for making the experience so enjoyable! It was definitely a memorable tour!
