A nice tour. Ask when buying your tickets they can provide an english guide. We did not know till after the tour. Luckily one member our group spoke spanish so she provided translation for us. Very informative tour and well laid out.

The tour included a trip up to La Bufa which has the church, museum, zip lining, shopping, and great place to take photos of Zacatecas. Then we were taken to la Mi a El Eden whch was the best part. The mine tour takes... More

It is a very nice attraction of Zacatecas. Make sure to take a sweater because inside is chilly/cold. I was expecting more of it, but the stories behind it and the water views are very nice.

This underground tour of the mine in Zacatecas was incredible. In addition to learning the stark history of the mine, you are exposed to legends and tales of those who worked there. There are incredible minerals to be seen, structure to be in awe of, and if you fancy, a pretty amazing club underground as well!

This place is a must, seriously. It's the best place I visited. A little crowded the tours, but given the amount of visitors I understand that. Be sure to take a light jacket or sweater. Don't enter if you are claustrophobic. The tour guides are great!

Zacatecas is beautiful city and one of the spots you do not want to miss is La Mina Del Edén. Going there is a really pleasant experience. You get there and buy your ticket (student discount but nevertheless is very cheap (4 bucks)) then you get your mine helmet and ready to go. You get into a train that takes... More
