Fun experience (a bit brief)

My husband loved this experience so much, he wishes it would have lasted all day. The instructor was patient and knowledgeable, and gave us a lot of interesting historical and scientific information. My only criticism would be the short length, although many tourists may prefer that. We just wanted it to last longer.

Pretty lame even for the little ones. Definitely a waste of time and money. You dump a plastic bag prefilled with “gem stones” and a couple of small gold flakes. Some found them some did not.

Larry was our guide and he was amazing! He was knowledgeable about the history of gold panning and history about Alaska. He also was patient and kind with my three year old, he took the time to explain everything and help us pan. I would recommend it for any ages!
