Mine tour

This was a very unique and interesting experience. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and had worked in the mine itself. We had a great time.

This is well worth the trip to Bisbee,the guide is well informed because he worked there 10 years.It's amazing how these men worked so hard to make a living. Make sure you drive through Bisbee and visit the Bisbee Coffee Co. and try the scones they are to die for.

My husband, friends, and I went to the Queen Mine in Bisbee to see what mining was all about. It was amazing at all the tunnels and amounts of copper, silver, gold, ore, and other minerals that were excavated years ago. It was a great tour of the history of Bisbee. A must see in Arizona.

This is a very informative and interesting tour. A trolley takes you deep inside the mine,stopping in different areas to listen to the former miner guide. The guide was full of information and answered all questions with knowledge and some humor! Well worth the time

This tour was definitely worth the drive down to Bisbee. Our guide, Sonny, was great. Given the last underground mine closed in 1975, to have a guide that worked in the mine was amazing. Not only did he know the history, he had actually done the same work before. It was quite something to see where and how they mined... More

We weren't able to take the under ground mine tour but we did visit the town of Bisbee.If you are ever in Seirra Vista area make it a point to go to the town of Bisbee. It is such a beautiful town with narrow steep streets and many shops and such charm. So glad we made it apart of our... More

Tour lasts about an hour and consists of a mini train ride through the tunnel and two stops. Interesting and enjoyable but question the value. The gift shop was great!

Bisbee, AZ is a destination itself. With its many shops, restaurants and vistas, it offers a rare blend of history, architecture, romance and adventure all wrapped up in the mining town setting. One of its major attractions and a 5-star "must see/do" activity is the Queen Mine Tour of the now inactive copper mine that put Bisbee on the map.... More

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.
