Taking this tour will have you enter a real mine shaft on a work train. You will be required to wear mining gear for the tour, hard hat with miner light, rain jacket, miner belt, miner tag. The work train travels about 1300 feet into an existing mine. This was 1300 feet into, not up or down. The tour allowed... More

I was taken here as a surprise from Phoenix, it was hot out but was told to take a jacket. It was cold in the mine. We went in a rail car, it was so authentic actual mine underneath. The guide explained all that went on there, I was able to take many photos.

We enjoyed the tour. If you have never been in a mine you will like this tour. Children on the tour seemed to have a good time.

First off I just need to say going into the mine on a sweltering Arizona day in June is quite refreshing. I really enjoyed the trip into the mine and the guide was very knowledgeable about mining as he is a modern day miner. If you like going underground into caves and mines this is a must do tour.

Very fun tour. You get to wear mining gear and ride a train down into the mine. It is very informative and especially fun for the kids. Not to be missed if you are in Bisbee. My teenagers loved the tour and it was a great way to see how miners worked. Would not recommend this tour if you have... More

A real mine, deep into the earth on a real mine train. Not an experience to be found in many places and completely worth the time, effort and cost.

Great little town built around the Copper industry and caters to the hippies if old. The mine itself is fun and filled with some interesting mining facts and a fun trip into the mine on a little coal driven train. I would recommend going if not for the one thing it is guaranteed to do and that is beat the... More

This is a must visit if you are traveling through Bisbee. The tour guides are very knowledgable and made the tour a ton of fun! Make sure you have time to spend in the visitor center and watch the movie, it will explain the history and technology of the mine.
