Very fun. Our guide was friendly and informative. He was able to explain the gold panning process so I collected gold flakes. He helped everyone. The venue was attractive and had clean restrooms.

Renell provided us with exceptional customer service when I made a mistake on booking our excursion. She listened and fixed everything for us, and we are very thankful for that! Because of her help we had a fun time with Jimmy, our tour guide! He was so informative and encouraging on our quest for gold. He really made our trip special! Job well done!

Grandchildren loved this tour!!! Panning for gold was very exciting for them to do and they are all between the ages 12-16. They came home with their treasures, smiles on their faces!! I did not go on this tour myself but the parents did and they enjoyed it too. I paid.

Gold in the pan!
June 20, 2019
This is a fun tour. The guide comes dressed as a prospector, is very funny and knowledgeable of the area. Made several interesting stops along the way before coming to the panning area. We were taught how to pan and all found gold. I now have gold from Alaska in my vial at home. Great time!

Fun Activity
September 19, 2018
This was a short and fun opportunity to do some real gold panning. They take the actual dirt from the actual river you are visiting. Because it is a quick excursion, it gives you time to enjoy the rest of Juneau. We all found gold and the views from the river were beautiful.

Motherload Matt
June 18, 2018
Our trip was fantastic! Matt was our best guide of the whole trip. He was knowledgeable about everything we asked, he was great with the younger members of our group and he was really funny. We all found a little gold too. If all your guides are as good as Matt, you have the best employees around. He's worth every penny you pay him and more. When we come back to Alaska and book our excursions, we will use your company again and ask for Motherload Matt again to.

We had the best tour guide--he was interesting and knew his history. You actually pan for gold dust and take it home in a tiny glass jar. The scenery is amazing. A fun little excursion.

We had done panning for gold the last time we were in Alaska but my daughter wanted to do it again. This was very authentic and the guide was excellent. Great presentation! We really got the feel of what it was like at the time of the gold rush.

panning for gold

We had such a great time panning. It was lightly raining but we did not care. The young lady did a fantastic job of explaining what we had to do. Her narration on the trip to the creek was very informative. I would love to send you pictures but unable to. So glad I booked ahead and NOT on the ship.
