It is one block off of the main street and was a very good side tour. The staff were very knowledgeable of the town and the mine. A lot of history tied in with the mine related to the beginning of the town. Very glad we took the tour. There is a sixty step stairs during the tour, but it... More

Guide was nice but the man that checked us in smelled like a brewery , some of the hard hats had duct tape holding them together or had big holes in them, safety did not seem big to these people

not Australia, down under Tombstone. Seriously nice to go down into the mines and chill. I mean literally chill during a hot desert summer day. The tour and history were equally nice, entertaining, and quite educational. If you like history you'll like the mine tour, sign up and step down...

We took the tour underground with a guy who was very knowledgable and explained how the miners found the silver lodes and how they got it out. Back breaking stuff and they had to work by only candlelight at first, 6 days 10 hour shifts I think he said but a few got VERY rich.
