Enjoyed the tour. Lived in the U.P. for 5 years, and am pretty knowledgeable on the area's geology. I found our tour guide to be friendly, funny, and quite informative. Went with a small group on the Miner's Tour and found it to be time and money well spent. Waited about 45 minutes to start the tour, and were able... More

Me and my fiance stumbled upon this mine, and we weren't even sure if we wanted to go in. However the staff was very kind. The owner was a little bit short staffed so he was offering a combination tour for a lesser price, I found it to be very informative, the group was only 4 people so asking questions... More

First time for some of us inside a mine. It was great! Pretty rough trail but Heidi our driver got us there safe and sound. Jim our guide and historian was awesome. Would recommend this tour to anyone interested in mining.

My wife and I took the Prospector's Tour. This was our first copper mine tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and had a genuine interest in his topic. You could tell he wasn't just reciting a canned speech. We discussed some of the comparisons that we knew about from Minnesota's underground iron mines. We came away with a better... More

I would highly recommend going to this attraction in the U.P. of Michigan. It gives you a great feel and awe inspiring experience of what the miners had to work with, as well as what they accomplished. They have several different tours that can accommodate any type of adventurer. I would definitely go back again as they open up more... More

We visited on a Sunday, and we were lucky enough to have a Prospector Tour with Jessie as our guide, our family got to go on our own. Our boys are 9 and 4, so having a "private" tour was a real blessing, and Jessie was amazing with the kids. The experience was really interesting and an adventure, definitely something... More

We had so much fun on our tour. We have been wanting to do this tour for years and we finally made it to the U.P. for this really unique tour. The drive is beautiful and the area is maintained so well. We walked in and were promptly greeted and we were told the tour would begin in 15 or... More

Our group of six signed up to do the Prospectors and Miners tours. One person has trouble with her feet and planned on doing the Prospectors only, leaving the group before the rappelling portion of the Miners. Be sure to dress very warm. It is very cold and damp down there. Photographic equipment can get fogged up. The floor of... More
