Going into a mine with your gear on and getting your tag is an experience. Seeing how hard men labored. This is great for kids and adults. A must for anyone visiting. The men who run the tour are actual miners so they can answer any questions you have and they are a hoot.

Had a great time in the Queen Mine. Guides are very knowledgeable as they worked in the mine. Jim, our main guide, answered lots of questions and made it fun. Donnie kept us safe. Husband told them it was my birthday, so I had a special seat toward the end of the tour on the Sanitation Car!

My grandson and I took the Queen Mine Tour and left my husband topside as he is claustrophobic. We had a ball! The outfitting before the ride in is pretty awesome in itself. Each "miner" is outfitted with a reflective vest, miner's helmet, belt and flashlight. Then you get on the cart that takes you deep into the mine. We... More

Great way to see what copper mining was like. Riding the "carts" through the mine gives one a first hand experience into the daily life of a miner. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and were able to see how mining changed over the years at the Queen Mine. Some stairs to climb to view one of the discussion areas.

We enjoyed hearing interesting geology facts, seeing the mine equipment, and hearing about the daily operations and dangers of copper mine workers. The guides seemed very knowledgeable. One thing to point out: the mine is not a place where it's pleasant for anyone to have children around them misbehaving. Talkative little ones make it difficult to hear the guides, and... More

Our guide began working in the mine after he graduating from high school and worked there about 20 yrs (from memory). You get a light, hard hat and yellow vest (raincoat in colder seasons) and head down into the mine on a little tram. EIght billion The mine has been closed (for mining) since about 1975 but produced an estimated... More

This was an amazing tour. So much fun especially for kids as you put on authentic gear to go into the mine. Our guide had been a miner all his life and was just wonderful. You go down into the mine and actually get to walk around. If you have mobility issues this might not be for you. You do... More

This was so fun! The tour guide had been a miner in town and had great stories. You get off and walk around the mine to look at things. This was more fun than anything we did in Tombstone.

Very interesting look at the history of the area. Neat train ride into the mine. Tour guides were knowledgeable as they worked in the mine in the 60s. I thought I couldn't handle the tight space but it was bigger then I thought and didn't have a problem.
