The Queen Mine Tour is run by retired miners so they know the answer to all your questions and my grandkids had plenty of questions. You start by paying a small fee and then are outfitted with a hardhat, a vest or a slicker depending on what you are wearing as it is usually in the low 50's or high... More

The Queen Mine Tour in Bisbee, AZ was very interesting and well run. We were all outfitted with a miner's jacket or vest, depending on how warm the clothing we were wearing was, since it is about 46 degrees in the mine. Also were given a battery-operated flashlight attached to a belt. We rode on a mine train where we... More

We did a 10:30 AM tour (had reservations, which is a nice feature of the tour). It lasts an hour and takes you 1500 feet underground. A great feature of the tour is that the guide was a former miner and was very knowledgeable, explaining in detail all the facts about the mine and the mining process. Nice and cool... More

We decided to go on the tour to get out the heat. It was well worth the $13. Benny our guide was great. Could have spent more time going through the history of the technology and mining methods. And it is a lot cooler inside this time of the year.

This is a fun and informative tour taking the trolley 1500 feet into the mine and having operations explained by a former miner. Our guide was very open to questions about conditions when he was a miner. As mentioned they get you outfitted with hard hats, jackets, and lamps. They also give you an ID medallion-only problem is that it... More

This was well worth the $13; great break from the AZ heat being roughly 47 degrees inside the mine. Guides are former mine workers with great knowledge stories of their experiences and share great facts. Tour itself was a little over an hour. Cool little souvenir shop for those interested rocks and items made of rocks (e.g. Animal sculptures, vases... More

The Queen Mine tour was great. You get geared up in a hard hat, light and either a safety jacket or vest. A few chose the jackets. It is warm at times but there is a point in the mine where it gets very chilly. My son had a sweatshirt on so he just wore the vest. Then off to... More

Everyone ought to see this as it's an actual copper mine. It was one of the largest in the country and mined copper, silver and gold for many years. It is a facinating tour and one you'll long remember!

The Queen Mine Tour was the first adventure we embarked on while in Bisbee. An hour of being underground in the mines learning of Bisbee's history as a mining town was just the precursor we needed to settle into the feel of what Bisbee had to offer! Make reservations in advance and be prepared for an experience you can only... More

I highly recommend this tour to people of all ages. The tour guides were knowledgeable, helpful, fun, and able to give detailed information on the mining process and what the work was like for the miners. We got to wear hard hats, lamps, and the yellow jumper which made us look ridiculous but it added to the fun. This tour... More
