Fantastic trip! Jules the guide really makes these trips, adding in history, humor and safety elements. I would recommend this especially to families. The easy hike is very scenic and then you get to find 35M year old amber!

I really liked the trip it was fun as well as informative. Our guide was great with everyone, answered everyone’s questions & shared the history of each area we stopped at. Everyone went home with amber & a fossil or 2 if they wanted. The hands on experience of opening the rocks to find the fossils was fun but my favorite part was finding the amber!
