Thoroughly enjoyed the entire tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable, funny and engaging. The history was well presented and it was fascinating to see things first hand and have them explained. Truth be told, I had planned to skip the gold panning at the end of the tour - I thought it was for kids. I did it with some expert coaching and had a blast.
