Came here on 05/22/20 with our 2 boys: 7 and 5 years old. My brother-in-law's family and their 3 kids also joined us: 7, 3 and 2. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted right away! The entrance fees were well worth the price of the GUIDED TOUR! Our tour guide has been here since 1998, so I guess you can say we got the best!
Our tour started off entering a real Gold Mine established back in the late 1800's. We walked through with our awesome Guide, and he provided tons of explanations and historic information. At one point we walked up a narrow set of stairs and all the kids were able to walk up by themselves. So this tour is vey doable with small children. Very cool stopping points and we learned a lot about the history of the Mine.
We walked out of the Mine to an open area with a gold mine wagon that holds up to 1 ton (2,000 lbs)! Cool photo op for the whole fam!
Then we walked to the other side of the property where they showed us a machine, which pressed all the large rocks to collect gold, silver & copper.
The tour ended with a gold mining demonstration, and everyone was allowed to grab pans and mine for gold. We did have to put the little specs of gold back, but the experience was still memorable.
Stopped by the gift shop to pick up various souvenirs for the kids! There were plenty of rocks and little memorabilia for $1.00. We all had a great time! Think the tour lasted about an hour, but it went by fast.
Had a blast at the mine - Daniel, our guide was funny and personable .... he knew a lot about geology and the process of mining. He kept us all entertained while imparting some of his vast knowledge of Julian and it's rocks.
It's a fun tour - and you get to go way inside the mine. It's crazy how nice and cool it was compared to the heat outside.
There's misters on the patio near the entrance and in the area where we first stopped.
There's a little gift shop where I got a little arrowhead and bracelet. The $10 adult entrance fee was a bargain for the experience.
(Masks were worn but took them off for the photo op)
Great place for the whole family Daniel our tour guide made the whole experience even better very informative and funny too highly recommend anytime your in Julian
There is so much history in this mine! Our tour guide, Miss Arlene, was so specific, kind, patient, and very knowledgeable. I was especially thankful for the amount and love and patience she had towards our children who also went through the tour. There are lots of activities and things to explore for the entire family! We can't wait to go back!
Wow! It was a wonderful and informative tour. When you're on the Main Street strip in Julian and locals tell you that you can walk uphill to the Eagle Mining Co., please drive up there, it's not a short hike. We go to Julian all the time but, I've never been on the tour; for $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children, it's worth every penny.
There's a good luck rock wall the Miner's of yesteryear used to rub before their shift; make sure you give it a rub. I got an orb in one of my photos! Enjoy.
This was a great tour! Aileen was my guide and if you get her you are lucky. It was walkable from the main strip and we were in the mine for a good amount of time. Worth checking out.
We took our son to Eagle Mining for his birthday. What a fantastic tour! Our guide Daniel was friendly and very knowledgeable about mining. Walking through the mine was an incredible experience. Panning for gold was fun too. We all had a great time. My son received a unique rock from our guide as a birthday souvenir, he totally made my son's day! Thank you again Daniel! You are awesome!
Such a awesome tour!! My kids loved it!!! Our tour guide lady was amazing!!!! So informative!!!
The staff is super knowledgeable and encouraged the kids to ask questions. Found this hidden gem off an app. Decided to give it a try. The kids were not too excited about it but decided to just go with it. We loved the trip. They were so happy we went and they were able to explore the mine. Point for mom... Overall, the trip was a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of OC. Super glad we went!
Visited this place today with our kids, Daniel was our guide. He was so authentic and a great guide. I don't know if our experience would have been as awesome if it wasn't for Daniel. The staff at the store were very nice, so where the ladies in the shop. The mine was Nice and cool. I'm recommending you all to all my Facebook friends and 2 friends will be coming soon. Thank you all for a great time! We will be back again!
This is a must do actitivity when you are in Julian. I came here with a friend, and we jumped on the tail end of a tour, and then we mined for gold! Once they started another tour, we jumped onto that one and then started the beginning of the tour last.
The team here are so helpful and fun. We got so informed on how to famine for gold and walking into the actual mining mountain was just a fun and super awesome experience. I loved every little bit of it and it's worth the money for the experience. I would totally go back again and bring my nieces.
Came here on a whim while on our way to San Diego and are so glad we stopped!!! Even my two teenage sons enjoyed the tour. Aileen was an awesome tour guide! Thanks for a great time!
