We had an amazing time! It was fun for the whole family. We would highly recommend this adventure!
Jules Pierson is awesome! The weather was really bad so the amber area was just mud and it was cold outside. It was hard to find amber but she had a fossil back up plan. My husband supports me but rock hounding is not his hobby. Jules pulled off a miracle and made the experience informative and fun for him! I will definitely be trying to book trips in the future.
Great trip with a great guide. My whole family had a great time!
