Get the real feeling of what this mine was all about in its hayday. Well informed guides (former Bisbee miners) who guide you through the mining experience. You are fitted with a raincoat, mining hat and light before you board the locomotive to take you into the depths of the earth. Guides also make time for questions. The facility also... More

A must visit in the Bisbee area! Inexpensive (about $13 dollars per adult, unsure of child's cost) and the tour guides are interesting as well as educated. When you are about to take the tour, you are suited up like a miner (hard hat and everything) and saddled onto an old cart train that brings you throughout the mine. The... More

Just as informational as it is fun, the Queen Mine is great for people of all ages. The humorous tour guides actually WORKED in the mine, so their tales are first-hand.

My 9 year old is quite the little rock hound and enjoyed the tour so much she wanted to do it again when we got back up to the surface. It was informative and the guide was great.

The mine experience is nice. Our guide, Doyle had worked in the mine and still does repairs there. It's interesting to learn more about the mining experiences. You do get off the cart and do some walking. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who is handicapped.

This was a great tour!! Our tour guide Jim was fun and very knowledgeable. Watch the video on the Queen Mine website to get an idea of the train ride in. I would even take the tour again. Parents please leave young kids with babysitter. They get bored and ruin the experience for everyone.

Tour was so fun. THey dress you up in appropriate mining gear and you take a train ride through the mine. There are two stops in the mine where you get a ton of interesting facts about the mine and the miners. This is a must do tour when in Bisbee!

Went with my mother and son who is 4 yrs old. First off we could barely hear the man doing the tour and he told everyone he could not hear. You do 3 stops and on the 3 stop my son wanted to chat so I pulled him away from the group so others could hear the tour guide. The... More
