This mine was so cool! Literally and figuratively. You ride a little train down into the mine and a tour guide narrates the history. You make several stops and learn all about the old time procedures. It'd very education and interesting. And you get to wear a slicker and hard hat!

Super informative about the over 500 miles of mine tunnels that honeycomb though the hill in Bisbee and the miners who worked them. Our Guide Benny worked these mines and told fun stories about equipment, the miners, and the large amounts money that could be made by those who worked hard! For $13, this is worth it. It is Cold...

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.

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.
