This was definitely the highlight of our weekend in Teller County. The tour was fascinating and we got to see some amazing views from the top of the mountain. Rodney was our tour guide, and he was excellent. I would go again if we are ever back in Teller County.
This was a wonderful tour! Rob, our guide/driver, was very well informed about mining operations & seemed to love what he does--educating visitors about gold mining. We covered a large physical area in our tour & even witnessed a "shot"(an explosion) from a safe vantage point. We saw one of the extremely large mining trucks(out of service) up close & personal & were able to climb up into it if we wished. This tour was a great value too. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I highly recommend this tour.
