This is a very authentic experience as it was a REAL mine and you are outfitted in safety equipment before you enter including a brass numbered tag you sign for. You also ride the same tram into the mine that the miners would have rode. Once in the mine you make a number of stops where you get off and... More

My 16 year old nephew and I were in the Tombstone area for spring break and this mine tour was definitely one of our favorite experiences of the trip. Our tour guide is a former mine worker so he is quite knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. It was a fun experience to be suited up with a... More

We took both our adult sons and our 13 year-old grandson on this tour. They found it exciting and enjoyed riding the train down into the mine. The guide was retired from working the mine and was very knowledgeable..I would highly recommend it.

While the mine was interesting and the tour guide was knowledgeable, I found the size of the group a bit off putting. The mine tunnels are naturally narrow and the group was too large for everyone to see/hear the guide as he described the tools used. We felt a bit rushed as well and our tour lasted just a bit...

Well worth the experience. Jim, our tour guide had worked the mine, so had first hand experiences to share as well as a good sense of humour. So good to understand what created this very interesting town.

Doyle and Joe are the best! These two retired miners gave our group a fabulous tour of the famous queen mine. Doyle's sense of humor and enthusiasm for his audience made our tour exceptional. You could ask these guys anything and get a good honest answer. The tour was not too long and not very physical. Some of the remaning... More

Great tour. Very educational and entertaining. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly. The information centre is very well done and gives you a feeling of being a miner. The town of Bisbee is a step back in time well worth visiting. Very quaint shops and interesting topography. Dress appropriately - it is 42F in the mine.

An excellent tour and it only costs $13 per adult. We almost gave it a miss, feeling a tad "mined" and "caved" out but thanks to the excellent Trip Advisor comments we went. The tour took 80 mins, you travel into the mine on a workers' train and the tour is conducted by 2 ex-miners. Their first hand experiences and... More

I was able to watch the 30 min video in the exhibit area before the tour. It's old, but informative. They suit you up like Bob The Builder and you ride into the mine on the same worker train used until the mine closed in the mid 70's. Our guide used to work in the mine and was an excellent... More
