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

First ever on a tour into a mine... WOW ... the 'gearing up' and the mode of transportation really brings home how those hardworking miners had to just get 'into' work site everyday.. loved the experience and still can't even comprehend how hard and dedicated all of those miners worked day after day...

Don yellow slicker, hardhat with lamp and ride the miners' saddle-type train through the real thing. Excellent for kids 12+ (yes, they can ring the miners' lift bells) and everyone over that. Several opportunities to get off and experience high-ceiling stopes, long galleries and a moment of absolute dark. Looks like they just left: many mining tools and machines still... More

We had a great time doing the tour. The guide was a former miner so we had lots of insight on how it was when it was open. Great stories, real imaginative descriptions of the inner workings. Lots of history and knowledge. The mine also was a cool escape from the heat outside. Definitely a worthwhile stop - highly recommend.

We really enjoyed the tour, especially since my ancestors were miners. Book ahead of time. Tour is a little over an hour and led by a retired miner. It's not as cold as the video says so you don't really need a coat since they have slickers you can wear. Several families brought young children (under 5) and it's not... More

It seems they require you to make a reservation well in advance (we were told 24 hours) of the tour. When we arrived, there were about 32 people who had reserved the tour for that time on that day, we know because it was verbally stated by the office over to guides that all 32 reservations were on site and...

My husband and I went into see what was there while waiting for our hotel room. It had very informative displays and if you need information on Bisbee they have it there.
