Quite a fascinating tour in a beautiful part of the coastline - the train going into the mountain was my favourite! Also includes a demonstration of the ways miners used to work in the beginning and throughout - from old noisy drills to working in candlelight, including blowing the miners whistle at the end awesomely loud!. Ends with a quick tour in the huge 20 story building that you see as you drive past. Have ample time to investigate the remainder of the site - all very fascinating and well laid out.
Excellent tour, fun, interesting, and knowledgeable.
seeing the mine built right into the mountain was amazing.
Had a wonderful and educational time. Who knew what a hard time miners had in the past i.e. working in the tunnels with candles. It was very well put together.
My family and I want to compliment our tour guide Gord. He was friendly, yet professional, timely, courteous, knowledgable and upbeat. We really can tell that he enjoys being a tour guide. The tour to Whistler on Wednesday, 6/7 was a highlight of our trip.
Great little train ride through the mine, with demonstrations and a wondrous tale of the history of this mine from extremely well informed guides. Loved it. Great break on the drive between Vancouver and Whistler.
This tour was amazing!
We were there over 30 years ago. They've added more to the tour and opened another building which was very interesting.
The tour guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. It can take a whole afternoon to see everything carefully.
Doesn't look like much from the exterior but don't let that discourage you. Lots of fun for the entire family and really interesting too...
We had a 9 year old and a 16 year old on this tour and they enjoyed it just as much as the adults! Highly recommend this trip and spending an hour or so in the self guided museum and gold panning area.
