Fantastic experience

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.

Very educational. The tour guide was very informative. The mine was very clean and I felt very safe with this underground experience.

This was an awesome trip into the history of Arizona. I've been in Arizona for 25 years but had never been to Bisbee until recently. A great trip altogether but the Mine Tour topped it off.

It was well done gave you plenty of time to enjoy the mine and the guide was very interested in sharing what he knew as he actually did work the mines.

We went to Bisbee for Memorial Day Weekend and happened upon this tour. I personally did not go on the tour as I am a big chicken and claustrophobic but my husband and friends did. They all said it was a great tour led by former miners! The tour guide was funny and informative which made for a nice visit!... More

You cannot do this if you're a last-minute person. Fortunately we read the website in advance, called ahead and got reservations (which we didn't do the last time we were in the area, and thus missed an opportunity). Suiting up and riding the train into the mine was a kick, both for grandparents and grandkids on our trip. The tour... More

Tour guides are former miners so very knowledegable. You ride on a little train originally used to move loads out of the mine and it's cool inside so bring a sweat shirt and wear sensible shoes.

Knowledgeable tour guides (they worked in the mine) and very entertaining. It is 47 degrees in there and even with the slicker they give you, long pants would be a good idea.
