It was one of those things that was good to experience, but I'm glad I didn't do the 9 hour trip and only did the 4 hours. The highlight was the stop where we got to pan for gold. Commentary was good and the lady was down-to-earth, but I personally would have liked more info and stories. Would I do it again? No. But it was something I can now tick off as doing and experiencing, it is part of our history, and I did learn new things.
