My wife and I went here and did the rappelling tour. It was a lot of fun. Our guide really liked to talk so sometimes we just tuned him out and enjoyed the mine. Their clothing selection is great to and the prices are fair. A must do.

Awesome tour!!! We signed on for the Mining tour that includes the 90' rappelling experience. Exceeded our expectations. Very neat way to learn about UP mining heritage. And never having rappeled before, this was unique opportunity. Our 13 and 14 yr old sons loved it.

This was an awesome attraction! We have 2 boys, 9 and 12, and they absolutely loved it. We took the "Prospector's Tour". ($25/adult, $14.40/child). Money well spent. It is nice that they have not run electricity into the mine; the only light is from the old air shafts and from the helmet lamps that the tour provides, The old-school feel... More

We took the Trammer's Tour with Dave and Ona as our guides. Both were informative and fun. The tour was great and the scenic overlook was amazing. Wish we had purchased the Prospector's Tour to see and learn more! Nice gift shop and incredibly friendly staff.

My wife and I were visiting the Upper Peninsula for our vacation and decided to try out a mine tour. This one was closer to where we were staying, and we had seen some brochures. Tours of the mine are on an "as needed" basis, so we had no worries about getting there "on time" or having to wait after... More

My 7 year old loved it and so did I! Very informative, educational and fun! Dave is the best tour guide. Very patient and very passionate about the mine and the environment. A must see while in the UP. Dress warm in October. Can get pretty chilly and drafty down there :)

After visiting the Porkies we drove over to the mine and took the Prospector's tour. It was not only very educational but also fun. Our tour guide, Kristen, was extremely knowledgeable and polite. This should be a "must-see" for anyone who is visiting the area.

Adventure Mining Company tour was great! Arrived bright and early on a Saturday morning, and had a tour all to ourselves! Tour guide Jim was personable and knowledgable and really took his time explaining how the mine worked and shared some of the history of the mine as well. Reasonably priced for the amount of time spent on the tour.... More

We did the Prospector's Tour with Dave. He was a great guide! The tour starts off with a ride up the mountain trail in an old German troop transport. That in itself was fun. The tour lasted almost 2 hours. You get to go directly in the mine and see the results of copper mining done at the turn of... More

We arrived first thing in the morning since we weren't able to do the Prospectors or Miners tours the day before. We were able to do both the Prospector & the Miner tours at the same time. I didn't want to rappel down but my boyfriend did. I just watched & waited until he reached the bottom before leaving the... More
