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.

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.

It was a very cool experience. The Salmon Bake was fantastic. The entertainment was good. The gold panning was not what I expected at all. If you are really wanting to know more about gold panning, don't go to Liarsville. All in all was a good experience, would go again.

We enjoyed the food and entertainment. Knowing where to go and what to do was a little confusing.

Setup was very much like it was in the Gold Rush days and food was very good. But I think that it was a bit too expensive for what was offered. The guide was very knowledgeable and had lived in the area all his life.

Salmon was ok. Nothing special. Show was pretty terrible. Gold panning was a big disappointment!
