We had a great time at the Adventure Mine. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone got to wear a miner's hat with light. The kids thought it was great exploring the mine. We did the Trammer's tour, but we felt we should have taken the longer Prospector's tour.

My "action and adventure" family of 6 (kids are 8, 9, 11 & 13) learned about the history and working conditions of the miners as well as the local culture. The kids stayed engaged in the tour for the duration! My advice is to dress in layers! Gets cold but definitely worth it! Our guide, Tom was awesome, mixing in... More

We arrived later than planned and they were still willing to take us on a longer tour. We had a great guide who was knowledgeable about the mines and history of the land. The owner was able to provide even more background and stayed open later talking to us about the property. It was an awesome experience!! My kids were... More

My husband and I decided to do a mine tour as the weather was rainy and cold and wasn't the best for other outdoor activities. We arrived at 9am when they opened and chose to do the Prospector's tour which was $25.00 per person. We started the tour right away, with just the two of us and our guide, Josie.... More

We took the Miners tour, there are different levels to choose. Ours included repelling a shaft to Level 2 of the mine. I've never done it before..you have to be at least 13 to do this. Our 17 year-olds couldn't stop smiling and talking about this experience. The guided walk is like walking thru history and gives you a sense... More

Our tour guide Jim was fabulous! He was extremely informative and knowledgeable about the mine. His concern for safety was genuine and was always considered first. We had a group of seven, three adults and four children and there was never a moment where I felt anxious, uneasy or rushed. My family has traveled throughout the United States and out... More

Our family of four really enjoyed this fun and educational experience. All of the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The owner's mother was working in the store when we arrived. She was ready to chat up and told us the back storey of this family owned business or should I say adventure. It's a definite must when in the... More

I've been on many mine tours throughout the U.P. and this one was my favorite. I loved hearing the stories and the fact that it's not lit with modern electricity to preserve the authentic experience. If at all given a chance to choose your tour guide, pick John! He made an already great tour more entertaining!

I took the "Miner's Tour" 2 to 3 hours, involved rappelling down one of the mine shafts and going over a small swinging wooden bridge. It was a terrific tour. Lots of information on geology, the history of copper mining etc. The guide was knowledgable and very safety conscious. I think kids would ADORE it.

We have done all three of the copper country mine tours and this is our favorite. You don't have to wait for a scheduled tour, when we arrived we were assigned a tour guide and off we went. This made for a nice, personalized tour that fit our level of previous knowledge and interest. If you are the least bit... More
