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.

Our tour guide was very funny and knowledgeable about the mine and the history behind it. He shared a few great stories and was very enthusiastic about his job. Price was fair and the wait to begin the tour wasn't bad at all. Highly recommend for a good laugh and something to do!

My husband and I recently took this tour, and it was very informative and factual. We got to go into the mine and it was immediately cool beneath the surface. I enjoyed our tour guide and have Great respect for the men who did this job back in the olden days. Thank you for the best tour yet!

This 45 minute tour is interesting. We visited Tombstone on a hot July day and enjoyed going into the mine and experienced an immediate cooling which made the tour very pleasant. The tour was a easy walk through the twists and turns of the mine (I don't recall it being all that hard - IE all ages on our tour).... More

The mine tour really offers a great experience to understand what really brought people to tombstone in the beginning. The price of entrance is not bad at all. The experience of it is worth it. Pictures are allowed and it nice and cool inside.

We have been thinking about taking the mine tour for years and finally found the opportunity to do so. The tour guide provided excellent background regarding the history of Tombstone -- how it actually was a booming silver mining town and not just the site of the shootout at the "OK Corral". The tour was about 1 hour and required... More

This tour was very interesting and educational. Our tour guide made it very interesting and fun. The worst part of the tour was the 60 stairs you had to go down and up.

We were traveling with our two grandsons. All four of us found the tour to be very interesting. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and proved to be an excellent guide for the mine.

Took this tour because it was my husband's choice. It actually turned out to be interesting. I liked that our tour dude as actually a member of the group to clean out and discover this place for tours. There are stairs...but they are shallow. I have a less than perfect knee and did the tour. There was also a gentleman... More
