Great Time with a Great Company!!

The trip we took was just the four of us and one additional person that joined our group. Due to flight cancelations the other people had to cancel. The Owner guided our trip herself. The first thing she asked was our names and what we wanted to see on the trip. Due to the size of the group, she let us spend more time at the locations that we were more interested in. My 10-year-old son wanted to pan for gold all day!! The group talked over the amount of time we wanted to spend at each stop, and she was more than accommodating. We learned so much and had a great understanding of how hard life in the gold rush must have been. When we head back to Denver we are going to sign up for more trips. If you are on the fence and enjoy history, great views, and very nice family-owned business that wants to make sure you have a great trip you are in the wright place!!

A great tour that you can learn a lot on but relate to the stuff they are saying. They explain things well and make sure you understand and see everything. They go above and beyond to make sure to do more things that you are interested in. I highly recommend!
