We took our 3 children, ages 2, 5 and 13 on the tour and all had a great time. It's around 47 degrees inside the mine so we took sweatshirts, but were otherwise in shorts and flip flops and we were all comfortable. The "train" pulls inside of the mine and stops to give information, which gives anyone that might... More

A great experience for all ages. The tour guide explained all aspects of hoe the mine operated and while walking at the 1,500 foot level showed how the machinery still down there was used. A great tour for anyone who is not claustrophobic.

Gang, This is a real mine tour! I am not certain there is much more that could be done to make the visitor feel the "authenticity" of this tour. Starting with the excellent mineral displays followed by the fun of gearing up and on to the train! Keep your hands at your side! NOT KIDDING!! While in the mine, excellent... More

The Queen Mine Tour was a great experience and quite informative. Our tour guide was very knowledgable after working in the mine himself for many years. One could only imagine what it was like going into the mine with only candles or lanterns back in the day. A great lesson on the AZ copper industry.

We loved the Queen Mine tour. You get plenty of time in the museum to see the models and artifacts, but the trip into the mountain was the highlight. Be sure to wear sleeves and long pants due to the 47 degree temp inside the mine. Well worth the $13 fee.

My husband and I recently did the Queen Mine tour, and we both agree this was a fantastic experience, well worth the time and money! What a great experience to take the train 1500 feet into the mountain. Sure it's dark, but not overwhelmingly so. And each person is wearing a bright miner's lamp that you can aim wherever you...

My spouse and I thoroughly enjoyed the Queen Mine Tour. Our tour guide was a gentleman that had worked in the mine for 21 years (until it closed), then went to work for the state of Arizona, retired, and now does tours. The tour could not have been any better than the way he presented it. Bisbee is jewel of... More

On a warm Arizona afternoon, visiting a retired copper mine whose temperature is always 47 degrees is a treat by itself. But this is a really well done tour, of a copper mine that operated from the 1880s to the 1940s. Everyone is equipped with a hard hat and a mine light, and the group takes off on a very... More

This was such an interesting tour! We spend our winters in Arizona, and you always hear references to the mining history of the state, but this tour really helps you see it close up. They outfit you with safety equipment including hard hats, miners lights, neon vests/slickers, etc. It makes for some great photo ops before you even board the... More

What a great way to escape the heat of the day for a while. This tour gave me a real appreciation for early miners in Bisbee. Our guides were both actually formerly miners and had a lot of great information about what we were seeing. My only reservations about this were that our guide was a bit quiet and hard... More
