Here's what our visitors have said:

"Awesome explorer tour of the slate mine. Fascinating and the tour guide, Mark, was really enthusiastic and knowledgeable - learnt a lot" James Parker explored August 2018.

“Absolutely fantastic thing to do. Guide is brilliant and this is truly an experience like no other. Utterly breathtaking bit of exploring.”  Kingofgeography explored 2017

"Couldn't have expected what was in store. We went on the 2 hour trip down the mine and time flew by we didn't want to leave. We left it til the last minute and didn't expect we'd manage to get a tour that day but Mark accommodated us and was the best tour guide anyone could ask for. Informative and enthusiastic, if you are in the area for any reason this needs to be one of your stops!" Ben M explored August 2017

“Mark kept all of us engaged for nearly two hours underground -  quite something when our family group of six included an 8 year old girl, one 14 year old girl, mum and dad in their forties and grandparents both in their 70's. A real gem of an experience whatever your age.” AandJ Oxon explored May 2016

“There are many mines you can visit in Wales. But this is the one you must visit.” Sue & Jim explored 2015
