My husband and I really enjoyed this tour.Tommy our driver was very informative and stopped off at Hoover Dam on the way to the mine, so got some good photo's.The tour and history of the mine was fascinating. The tour guide was very funny and informative and made the whole experience a joy. The area around the mine has some interesting things to see. If you ever watch American pickers and like to see what people collect you will enjoy this.

Fantastic tour. Guide/driver offered historical details and had a great personality.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

It is beyond belief when you see the mine. How hard miners had to work. The mine has electricity for our convenience but to realize how little light they had to work in....amazing. It was really interesting listening to the guide about the history of Techatticup. And they have wonderful old photos and fun stuff inside and outside the old house. And, where else can you buy gold shavings for an unusual gift. I was raised in Las Vegas, but live in Maryland now. Coming home and revisiting Eldorado Canyon and Tehatticup....and seeing our wonderful bighorn sheep....it was a great tour. Hats off too miners and thanks for the history lesson.
