Description: The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in...
The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in the Tombstone Mining District, which started the mining boom which resulted in the incorporation of the City of Tombstone. When you take the tour, you will be shown through the original 1879 workings by a knowledgeable guide, and learn all about nineteenth century hard rock silver mining. You'll see what the ore looked like, learn about how it was processed, see some beautiful rocks and minerals, and artifacts and structures that have been in place for 130 years. This is one of the mines owned by Ed Schieffelin, the founder of the town, part of the Tombstone Mill and Mining Company, which he founded as well. The Goodenough Mine Tour is the most authentic and unique attraction in the City of Tombstone, and you'll see the results of the hard work of the miners. It's an experience that you will enjoy.

Not bad. Easy walking tour. Lots of steps though. I think our guide had too much to drink as he kept slurring his words and stuttering.

It was a good tour, easy walk and informative. Even though it was supposed to be an hour tour, we were underground for about 30 minutes. I would have given it 4 stars if the tour was actually an hour. It is pretty dusty, so wear a pair of shoes that you do not mind getting dirty. Although there is... More

My husband and son took the 45 minute mine tour. Their guide (Mongo) was such a character! They both enjoyed it so much, and walked away with some interesting info! Thanks for a great time!

Very interesting and a great value. Our guide was young but had great knowledge of the history of the town and the mine. Mongo is a character that you need to meet

First mine tour for us. We were told we'd have a different guide but he didn't show. This turned out to be great because "Mongo" was a hoot! He looks the part and shared enough to answer questions but not so much as to bore the kids. We were perfectly pleased!

Really enjoyed the walk through the mine. Took a little time, but was an easy walk. Guide did a lot of informative narration during the walk, so you came away with more knowledge about the miners and the work they did.

Located at the end of the block and near some of the best food in town. Love the hard hats. The tour guide was very informative, funny and approachable. He made it very interesting. Lots of low ceiling areas to watch out for but he made sure everyone was aware. Great tour! It was raining but it was warmer in... More
