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!

We've been twice, taking visiting family, both times, and everyone loved it! This is a must-do in Bisbee. You won't be disappointed. This should be a required school trip to show the kids how people USED to work to make a living, IMO...

We drove on an old mining train under earth an visited several places where Jim told... More

We very much enjoyed our tour of the Copper Queen Mine which is lead by a former miner. It involves traveling into the mine on a small train and alighting twice for a short walk further into the mine. It is a very informative tour including the history of the mine and the various techniques used to mine the ore.... More

Sonny, our guide, worked in the mine for 21 years before it closed in 1975. He was able to share first hand experiences of working in the mine. We travelled on a modified rail car 1500 feet deep into the mountain. Very interesting experience.

The tour lasts about an hour and you get to dress up in miner gear. How cool is that? The best part is the tour guides are real miners from back in the day so they are very knowledgeable and share all of the ins and outs of being a miner. After the tour, you will fully understand how hazardous... More
