“Well worth a detour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

To be honest I wasn't expecting a lot from this one but I was wrong. The tour was interesting and entertaining. Because the guides all worked in the mine they can really answer all your questions and let you have a real insight into life as a miner.

Can't recommend it high enough.

Mike was our guide. He really brought his experience as a miner to life. Take a jumper/coat its cold. Definitely a trip not to be missed.

Great to see something different. Tour from people who genuinely worked there back in the day. The staff were very friendly. Well worth the trip

“A must see experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

My husband and I visited arigna coalfields in May. I must say yhat I came away from this visit in awe of the miners who worked in mines down the years. We were given a tour by a former miner who helped us to experience and imagine their lives underground. This is an attraction not to be missed.
