We were able to visit Bisbee this week and had some free time. There is a tour of the old copper mines. For $13 you can take a tour into the mines. There is a gift and rock shop to visit while you wait. Prices are reasonable. We were then outfitted with hard hats and lights along with jackets and... More

Rock and gem fans, this is it! In the minehead building at the Copper Queen Mine, there are large displays of all the beautiful gems and minerals to come from the area as well as a reasonable and well-run gift shop. Check it out while you're waiting to get down with the Mine Tour.

Great stop in Bisbee. Highly recommend. Easy to access from town and they offered a few tours per day. The woman checking us in wasn't the most pleasant but it's a small criticism to an otherwise great place to stop.

We visited the mine during the afternoon hours. There was no lines and it was a welcome relief for the heat outside. We were told that there was a reservation process, but on the day we visited, this was not the case. The mine was authentic although operations ceased in the 1970's as a producing working mine shaft. There is... More

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.
