We got unlucky with our tour guide but still a very interesting tour. Make sure you have on closed toe shoes. It is a little cool in the mine. You don't need a coat, but you might want something to keep you a little warm.

The tour guide was amazing. He worked in the mine until 1975. He had worked most jobs in a mine, what a character. Funny, down to earth and open to any kind of question.

We spent the morning in Tombstone and had reservations for 330 pm tour. Didn’t realize we needed closed toe shoes but no worries they had some rubber covers for our sandals. It was a very interesting and educational tour. Highly recommend it

We visited the Copper Queen Mine during our stay in Bisbee and were extremely impressed, not only with the tour itself, but with the tour guides who actually worked in the mine before it closed in the seventies. The hour spent on the train and...More

Underground mining was a huge way of life for families long ago. This tour gives you an great feel for what it was like to be working underground. The 'train' is a great way to transport visitors underground and to learn about the various aspects...More

No need for old clothes or shoes, you don't get dirty. Bring a sweatshirt as it's cold in the mines. Make sure you have a reservation, too. Enjoy!

I wouldn't recommend this tour for anyone who is unsure on their feet. The floors are uneven, with loose stoned and rock. There are some steps to climb and descend. It would not be safe or comfortable
