Words can't describe this. It's such great history it puts everything down here to shame. These people should be proud of the work they put into this attraction. Go see it, it's so good!

My husband and cousin went on this tour and loved it! They found it informative and the guide gave a lot of information about copper mining in Arizona.

Very well organized and affordable. You don slickers and a hardhat and climb aboard a "train" for a trip into the side of the mountain. Our guide was so knowledgeable as a former employee, and we've never seen anything like this. Plenty of information, but limited opportunity to snap photos once inside due to the size of the tour (that's... More

I have never been in or down a mine before, and no more appropriate place to do it than in the old copper mine of the fab historic mining town of Bisbee. Very professionally operation, yet in a friendly and relaxed way that mean it will not be scary or intimidating for most visitors. They give you hard-hat and overalls... More

I liked it, until we got below the surface...just found out I don't like close quarters underground lol. My family loved it though and they learned a lot from our group guide. Great personality and who better to share than a true miner. He was my favorite and I'm glad we got to be there on his birthday!

If you find yourself in Bisbee (a great little town), don't miss out on the mine tour. It's reasonably priced and a one-of-a-kind experience. Retired mine workers take you down into the mine to give a thorough tour. You really get an understanding of how the mines worked. It only takes about an hour. They have a nice fireplace in... More

It was a little pricey BUT it is a mine after all and it takes upkeep, inspections, repairs, etc. It was a bit hard to hear all that the docent had to say as we were in a long line and he would turn his head to address everyone but in doing so would always not be heard well. The... More

What could be better than dressing like the minions from despicable me and riding a coal cart into the mountain. The learning potential is great and the experience was enjoyed by everyone in our family - age 5 to 72. Book ahead of time in the holidays, they sell out early.

Enjoyed it all. Wanted to get a small taste of what my grandfather did everyday of his working life. You really ride into the mountain as the miners, see tools that were used over the decades and experience in the tiniest of ways the dark, cold, hard dangerous job.

I've been on this trip three times. It's good value and the guides have lots of fun facts to share. Each time, the information is varied and you'll always learn something new. Mining was a rough thing to do, and miners didn't live long. You'll understand why after this tour.
