Wow, the things our forefathers did to earn a living and build America are incredible. If you ever think your job is too tough, take this tour and see what a truly difficult job is. The dangers miners faced are remarkable. This tour is well the time and money.

My wife and I had a good time. It does leave you wanting more. You go inside the mine on an electric rail car which is fun. It was chilly inside which was also nice. They hook you up with a rain jacket, helmet and light and the tour guide is very interesting and he worked in the mine before... More

The tour was recommended and my husband and I were happy to go. It was a great time, what a fantastic experience! You'll go into the mountain via small train, see the frameworks, tools and massive undertaking that goes into mining. It was worth visiting and the staff is friendly and talkative. Go visit!

My family of five, three teens, loved this tour. I have one who is a little claustrophobic, but she did fine after the first few minutes. It is really an interesting tour. Our guide Bennie was an actual miner in this mine and you could tell he was proud of his work and enjoyed sharing his experiences with us. He... More

Being terrified of closed in places, it took a lot of cajoling for my daughter to get me on the mine train and into that mine. I was very pleasantly surprised! The initial thought of being under that much dirt in a small cave had me, at first, wondering what are you doing here??? And then I saw the sparkling... More

If you're in the area, the mine tour is worth the stop. Very interesting history of mining and the guide was engaging. If you have kids it would be fun. There is a mini train ride associated with the tour.

We drove 1 1/2 hours from Marana AZ to Bisbee AZ to visit the Queen Mine and take the tour on the train down into the mine, but guess what - all tours were fully booked all day. I was amazed, it's the middle of summer ! (August 23) -- So my advice is don't go unless/until you have made... More

On our trip through Arizona we stopped in Bisbee and decided to take a break from the drive and take this tour. It was a really fun experience. As others have said they outfit you in miner's garb with hardhats and lights. It was really hot when we were there but the signs said it was very cool in the... More

Loved the Queen Mine Tour. Our guide was very interesting and engaging. It was fun riding through the mine and interesting finding out about what mine workers experience. It was approx. 46 degrees in the mine which was a nice relief from the hot day!

Take this tour when you visit Bisbee. Get dressed up in miner's garb, and experience what the miners went through entering the mine on the little train. The tour guide is an expert and really brings the life and work of the miners to life. The facts about this mine are entertaining and fascinating for all ages. Learn about the... More
