This place is terrific. Benny was our guide. He is terrific. We learned so much about the history of the mine and the day to day activity of the workers. It is cool in the mine, so bring a jacket and wear pants.

Having never been in a mine I was skeptical! Benny our guide was amazing! A former miner in the Queen Mine he was a wealth of information! The tour was informative, fun and an important look back into the history of Bisbee.
