First, I would recommend making a reservation. Our train was full. The mine tour is a fun trip into an old copper mine. The guide was very knowledgeable about the mine and history of the area.

I grew up in Bisbee and have taken this tour several times. I recently went back and did this tour with my family and it didn't disappoint. Great way to cool off in the summer. Also all the guides are former underground miners and you get first hand knowledge of the process.

Well worth the time to see the inner workings of a mine and how miners lived. Make reservations early the day you want to tour or even earlier. Tours book up fast for the entire day, especially on weekends.

We took the tour and had a great time. Very informative and made you think of how old and complicated it was during the mining days.

It was so interesting to see the inside of this mine and what was even better was the nice consistent (all year long) temperature of 47 degrees. The history of the mine, the tools they used, the equipment...it was a fun tour.

Enjoyed hearing the stories of the early miners and how hard they had to work . If you like to learn more about them you should take this one hour tour.

Learn about mining from a real miner riding and walking through a real mine. See how miners lived when they worked underground, the jobs they did, and the tools they used. Come away with a real feeling for what it was like to be a miner in the Copper Queen Mine. If possible, follow up your visit to the mine... More

Many of my guests have gone several times. If you want to cool off in the summer heat, take time to visit the mine. A unique experience.

This is a unique opportunity to go into a mine and experience the darkness and cold! Take a jacket! It is cold inside even when it is hot hot hot outside.
