Definitely wanted to experience a mine tour, esp. going in the mine in railcars with former miner guides. Our guide worked in the mines in the 1970's and was very knowledgeable. At first, I was leery about an underground excursion, esp. riding in a rail car through narrow tunnels. I am extremely claustrophobic (just thinking about narrow enclosures gets me... More

We had a quiet dinner for two in this hotel in the center of beautiful Bisbee. The menu was not long, but fine for us!

A well organized mine adventure. Travelled underground 1500 ft on a small rail car. Very interesting. Not for the claustrophobic.

My wife and I took our 3 year old grandson on the tour. The tour last about 1 hour but you need to get there about 20 minutes early. Parking was ample. The overall tour was great and well worth the money. What a way to experience true mining. The cart you sit on like a horse in a group... More

Very enjoyable tour - a must. Be sure to make reservations to get the time you want. Not for someone who has claustrophobia - underground and interesting

A little slow in the dispensing of gear, but the tour was excellent and Jim, our tour guide, absolutely made this a total recommendation.

Quite informative and fun. The price was more than worth it. We have been talking about doing this for years and weren't disappointed. We will definitely be back!

They deck you out in helmet and lights and send you into the mine on little train you have to straddle. The kids really enjoyed it. The tour guide is a retired miner. It is chilly in the mine, so bundle up. It was a cool tour.
