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.

Arrived early in Tombstone and immediately met an old cowboy character who was clearly working for this mine and encouraging people to book their tours - personable guy and so glad we did - a young guy took us down and he was a great tour guide - really interesting and good to know the real history of why tombstone...

We did this trip on our last they as we originally skipped it, but I'm really glad we did. It lasts a bit under an hour and the whole trip is very interesting from the start to the end. You'll get to see some older mining equiptment as well as the mine itself, and although I believe the quality of... More

The guide explains the mine system and takes you through the large sections where great quantities of ore were found. For a first time visitor to such a mine, this is well worth doing and takes just under the hour.

I thought this was interesting to visit an actual mine, not some fake reproduction. I do not remember the name of our guide but he was friendly and very informative. I am claustrophobic and at first was a bit uneasy. But I got caught up in the narrative and ended up having a good time. We were not offered other... More

This mine was discovered in 1878 and has miles upon miles of tunnels routing all under Tombstone on different levels. They have many tours of differing lengths. You could easily spend all day underground and not come close to seeing the entire mine. For me, one hour is plenty. There will be guys wearing mine helmets out on Allen Street... More

This tour is inappropriate for families with children they allow you to drink alcohol on the tour and a few of the men that were drinking in our group were talking inappropriately about women and sexual things WITH the guide about what went on back in thoes days. They need to ban the alcohol in such tours in my oppion... More

Sure, we let people take a drink with them on the tour, after all, our other business on the property is the Dragoon Saloon, http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g31381-d3747183-Reviews-Dragoon_Saloon-Tombstone_Arizona.html. Ninety nine percent of the time this is not a problem. Mom and Dad have a beer, kids have their soda and everyone enjoys the tour. Sometimes, somebody will have a bee or two before... More

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.

This the second time we've gotten a remark like this, and the perception is false. This remark regards James, our guide who has worked for us for over a year now and has gotten some great reviews in these pages. James is diabetic, and when he doesn't eat enough, he gets woozy. On the day in question, he finished this... More
