A fantastic couple of hours where Paul explained workings of a mine. Extremely interesting to hear first hand the life of a miner. Paul made the tour interesting for all ages engaging young children through to us older visitors. Added surprise was scones and coffee at end of tour.
Well worth the money and a must whilst in Coober Pedy.

The new passionate owners have done a fantastic job so far of expanding the facility and are still working on it so it will get even better. They explained so much about the mining methods and opal quality etc. Our dog was allowed in the facility and down the mine too which made it more enjoyable and was what made us choose it.

The whole experience was fantastic from the time we arrived until we left (over 3 hours). Great hosts who informed and entertained the whole group. The new owners have done a lot to the old mine and it really is a must for anyone visiting Coober Pedy.

This tour is definitely worth the visit! Paul was a fantastic guide, gave great insight into the workings of the mine and some great stories. Our 9 year old son loved the tour, great opportunities for the kids to explore and hands on activities. Some great options available at the store also at all price points.
Thankyou to all the staff for being so accommodating and offering such an informative tour.
