mine tour

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!

This is a great mine tour complete with miners lights, hats and jackets. Not for anyone who is claustrophobic though. You are on a small train and do some walking and a few flights of stairs.

Stopped in as part of a southeastern Arizona road trip. The wife's family were miners in da Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I come from a long Arizona heritage, and my son is all about anything resembling Minecraft, so it seemed like an ideal stop. Originally thought that "only 1000 feet in" sounded small, but once inside the mountain it seems... More

Interesting and fun tour that takes you into the mine shaft and gives you a better feel for what a miner would have experienced underground. The highlight was the walk from the tram stop into the very large room with the ability to view some of the remnants of formations on the wall. We were expecting a bit more, so... More

I'm not sure what I can add since the previous reviewers have said it all. Just to repeat: call ahead for reservations, have a jacket because it is cold in the mine and bring your own sense of adventure. I had never been in a mine before and knew nothing about mining but by the time we ended the tour... More

The tour was very interesting and the two tour guides were very knowledgable and did a great job. It was good to actually have someone who had worked in the mine, me was funny and we really enjoyed our tour.

At a cost of $13 per adult, this one hour tour was very interesting. After we donned our slickers, hard hats and lights we boarded the trolley that took us 1500 ft. In the mine. Our tour guide was an ex miner who actually had worked in this very mine and was very informative and entertaining. I highly recommend that... More

After reading reviews, I called ahead and made a reservation. Our tour ended up being sold out, so it was good that we reserved a spot. The train ride was fun for the kids. All of the staff at the mine were super friendly and knowledgeable. FreePort McMoRan owns the mine and leases it out to the town of Bisbee,... More

This is an excellent tour to take when in Bisbee. It gives you a real understanding for the people and history of Bisbee. As stated by other reviewers, advance tickets will prevent disappointment as all tours the day we went were sold out. They outfit you in miners helmets, rain slickers with belt and light which you can use throughout... More
