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.

This was a really interesting mine tour, with lots of history and stories. The old original timbers hold up the roof of the mine, and there are many chambers and tunnels. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. There is a flight of stairs to walk down, and therefore, back up out of the mine,... More

Good Enough mine tour is right in town on 5th street. Several tours are available, some only for the young and adventourous. The normal tour last for around 40 mins or so and takes you down into the mine on an easy walk. Our tour guide was involved with the reopening of the mine for tours, and had first hand... More

its a great tour, not like a museum with just displays and pictures, you get a real feel for how the mine worked in the day. the young guide was very knowledgeable and able to answer all the questions posed. I was hoping to tip the guide however he had to come up the stairs last so we missed him.... More

We enjoyed our tour of the mine. The guide did a good job of explaining the history and shared lots of interesting stories. We were with a fun bunch of people and they added to the experience. You should be aware that coming up the stairs at the end of the tour is quite a hike and if you lack... More

It was a very informative guided tour. The only bad thing really was all of the steps coming back out, make sure you are in pretty good shape. It was worth the effort, however.

History and exercise! You walk down a lot of steps to go into the Good Enough Mine. Of course you have to walk back up all the same steps to get back out. Our guide said you only have to walk up half as many steps going back if you take them two at a time. You will learn a... More

Our guide had a good knowledge of the history of the mine and of the area. He kept the fact coming long enough to be interesting,but not too long to... More

Frankly, I enjoyed the mining tour more than the OK Corral reenactment and the Ghost Tour. Tombstone was built off of the silver mining industry and this gives you some great insight into the area. The rocks and artifacts are cool and the tour guide is informative. All fitness levels were on our tour, so it's accessible for almost everyone.... More

We checked out this mine tour when visiting Tombstone Arizona. I was a bit leary because they have people out in the streets rather agressively selling the tours. While waiting for the tour to start they suggested we take advantage of the rather rough looking saloon they had set up and assured us we could take our drinks with us... More
