  • Tim was great. Friendly lots of great information. Beautiful sites to see. Great tour. Loved Tim natural look. Perfect for Alaska. Would definitely recommend.

  • I always wanted to pan for gold and this was an opportunity of a lifetime. Well worth the time and well worth visiting. You get to pan for gold. They teach you how and I did get flakes of gold and precious stone nuggets. WOW. What a great time we had. I highly recommend going and having fun doing it.
