We enjoyed the trip and narration of points of interest by the driver. We were fed a delicious meal soon after arrival. We then toured the grounds at our leisure and were informed of different things in life of those old time gold miners. We enjoyed a short performance and then made our fortune gold panning by finding about 3 thin flecks. The history of Liarsville was explained along the way. Great scenery.

The tour was very good. There was some confusion abour the pick-up point as two locations were specified. We had tried to confirm the booking on the phone number given but each time (at least 3 times) were put through to what sounded like a recorded message of a child talking non-stop. We were eventually picked up and taken to join the group.
The food at the salmon bake was very good; the gold rush camp was really interesting and good fun; the gold panning was also good fun. Would recommend this tour

Food was good. Show was fun. Cute area. Panning for gold was a good experience for the kids. Bus driver was knowledgable about Skagway. If you have kids, a definite must do.

We were travelling as a family. Myself, my husband, young daughter, and both my parents. We all went on this excursion and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our favourite parts were, in no order: Panning for gold and getting little "bits" to take home, the salmon bake was phemonenal. The ?Huskies or ?Malmuts wandering around the camp really thrilled our 5 yr old, who absolutely adores animals! The "ladies of the camp" were extremely funny and a funny part of the tour. Our favourite person for all 5 of us was "Buttermilk". He was our bus driver, but he was incredibly funny, personable and kept everyone aboard his bus really enthralled in his history and stories. He's a true asset to this excursion. We all said after leaving his bus upon return that we could have driven around all day with him just listening to his stories about Skagway. Thank you again and definitely, THANKS BUTTERMILK!!!!!!

Skagway was our favorite town. Salmon was great! Real frontier people to see and talk to. Loads of history to absorb.

The Gold Rush Camp itself was excellent - great food (great sauce on the salmon!), great atmosphere (despite it being a rainy day), great cast of actor/interacters. My regret for the day was that we were the first group to arrive, so we spent a lot of extra time waiting for later bus arrivals to finish eating before moving on to the show and gold panning. Thus, our time to try gold panning was greatly abbreviated as our bus had to head back to town first. So, more of a scheduling issue than anything.

Everything was wonderful - good transportation and commentary, good food, fun show and plan to retire on all the gold we panned!!

As a whole, the excursion was good. We were picked up on time and the driver was funny, informative, and friendly. The best part was the play; it was very entertaining and the actors were fantastic! The cons were the food and gold panning. The food was only average and the gold panning was a bit of a disappointment. We thought we would really pan for gold, instead it was a makeshift area that was planted with gold flakes. If we had known that gold was never mined in Skagway, we may have chosen a different excursion. Overall, it was good value for the money.
