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.

We took guests on the mine tour and we all enjoyed the tour very much. It was our second time, but our guest's first time. They talked about it for the rest of the day. The guides have been entertaining both times and the information is very interesting. We will be back again this Fall with more guests. Well worth... More

Best tour we did on our trip! Our guide, Mel, was an actual retired miner and brought real experiences to our tour. He was funny and professional. The miner's cart ride down into the mine was fun! I am 47 and I have to admit I giggled a bit like a kid at a carnival. The coolness of the mine... More

This is the real thing. You are taken underground into a mine shaft via a mine train and shown some of the real equipment used through the eras for mining. This is usually done by someone who actually used to work the underground mine shafts before it closed in the 70s.

Greatest activity to do! Great history lesson and huge bang for your buck. Combine the tour with a visit to the Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum. It is the reason Bisbee exists.

August is not a busy time of year for Bisbee so the restaurant was quiet but the food was very good with decent choices. Out waiter Tristan was very sweet and came over to check on us periodically. We came back the next morning for breakfast because there were no other restaurants that served breakfast that we could find on... More

Been several years since I visited the mine, very little has changed but you no longer go into the mine as far as you used to be able to. Structural safety. You still get to see a lot and learn what the mining life was and is. Staff is very knowledgable and nice. The highlight of our experience was buying... More

A great underground mine tour that gives you a perspective of what mining life was like. Mining was and is a huge part of Bisbee and the surrounding area. This historical mine tour is one of the best. Simply a must see....

It was very interesting especially since I live near an open pit mine. Glad I did it once. But really was boring for the most part and hard to hear the tour guide.
