I highly recommend this tour to people of all ages. The tour guides were knowledgeable, helpful, fun, and able to give detailed information on the mining process and what the work was like for the miners. We got to wear hard hats, lamps, and the yellow jumper which made us look ridiculous but it added to the fun. This tour... More

Best tour we've been on in years! Trolley takes you into the 300 foot level of the mine, traveling tunnels miners would have traveled as much as a century ago. Tremendous amounts of information. Don't miss this ne!

This tour was fun from the moment we walked in the door! The guy's that got us suited up obviously liked their jobs. They were engaging and a lot of fun. Our tour guide had actually worked the mine, so his perspective and information was really great. We rode in on a train and were able to get off at... More

The tour is lead by retired miners, you ride into the mine and are given fascinating stories about the way the miners worked and what it was like to be a miner. It was cold in the mine, so dress warm.

The tour guide was excellent and full of information about the job he did. We would have liked to see a little more of the mine but that was not possible. We did enjoy it and the museum that goes with it.

$23 for two. Got to wear yellow slickers, miner's lamp, and hard hat. Lots of fun for adults and kids. Tour guide was very informative. It's chilly in the mine, but the slicker helps keep you warm. Worth the trip.

Our tour director was excellent. He obviously loved his job and was very informative. He had worked 21 years in mining, so really knew what it was like. However, I guess I was hoping to see more of the mine than we did. As expected it was dark and dirty. If you've never seen a mine, I would reccomend you... More

All the quests were given hard hats,yellow jacket, belt to then hook on your light. The tour was about a half hour long. We sat on a trolley with one of the original miners from 40 years ago who was our tour guide. He was full of information and answered any questions you had. I'm claustiphobic and I had no... More

I booked this thinking it might be interesting but not expecting much. As it turns out it was extremely well executed, highly informative and truly fun! I am somewhat claustrophobic but it honestly didn't bother me all that much after I got over my initial mild panic, lol. The guide was a retired miner himself and was very knowledgeable. The...

This was the best part of visiting Bisbee. You get to go underground, dress up and travel through real mine shafts. The tour guide is a knowledgeable former miner. Great!
