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. « less

I went on the 3 hour Tough Nut tour with my sister, along with our 60 yr old parents. It was a blast!!! My parents are not in bad or great shape- they can do hikes and so if you can handle that then you can handle this! Our guide was Kerry who is fantastic and actually helped clean the... More

We visited with our 3 kids ages 10, 7 and 3. All of us had a great time and learned a lot about mining. Our guide worked for Phelps Dodge and was extremely knowledgable.

Took the family (kids ages 10, 8, 6, and 3) to Tombstone for our first time. What a great experience! The good enough mine tour was excellent and worth every penny. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about every detail of the mine and city. We highly recommend this tour if you go to Tombstone.

My wife, friend and I took this tour to kill time while waiting for an other couple. What a lucky break! We got a discount on tickets from the owner, then had the good fortune of being the only ones at that time. Our tour guid Erica was off the charts in respect to enthusiasm and knowledge regarding all aspects... More

This was a great tour of one of the founding silver mines in Tombstone. Cool stories, great fun for the whole family. Easy walk, hardest part was walking back up about 60 stairs at the end. No rush though. Highly recommend this place!

Thought it was a really cool mine. History was very interesting on what Tombstone was really about. We had small children ages 7,5,3 and this was the perfect length tour for them. I would recommend as a must see!
