This tour is definitely better than the one that is offered in-town under one of the saloons.

The owner is also the tour guide. He has actually worked in modern-day mines and is a wealth of history and details.

If you are claustrophobic, don't do this. You walk through a low-ceilinged tunnel for a few hundred yards to the back portion of this mine shaft. This was a real mine at one time and you can see the support beams as well as get dripped on by water seeping through from above.

Once you get to the back of the mine, the tour guide gives an interesting history of the mine and what is was like to be a miner back in the 1850's.

Fun tour...just about the right length in time to keep you interested. Lots of old mining equipment is scattered around outside the mine.

PROS: Interesting; Not Expensive
CONS: Cramped but realistic
