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.

I've been to plenty of mine tours over the past few years, and this one, by far is the best and most informative. You take a "trolley" deep inside the mine. The tour is given by former workers of the mine. They are entertaining and have tons of information. Definitely worth the hour or so of your time. Might be... More

We went on this tour about 20 years ago and not much has changed. They suit you up in a slicker, light, and hard hat. Once they get ready, everyone walks out to the train that consists of long bench cars pulled by an electric tractor. You straddle the bench and just kind of squeeze together. The train runs you...

We arrived at the mine around 3 PM not knowing when the tours started. Just happened that it started at 3 PM and the four of us were the only ones there. They fitted us with rain coats, helmets and lights and off we went. You get on a little electric train that takes you about 1/4-1/2 mile into the... More

The people were all so friendly leading up to the tour. Great atmosphere. I'm pretty claustrophobic, but I had no trouble in the mine. When you first go in, they talk a few minutes to let everyone get acclamated to the area before going deeper. Once we got going, the tour was very interesting and informative. Our tour guide was...
