Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was very informative and the fact that he had been employed in the mining business for many years helped lend credibility to the stories he told. The tour was about 1 hour which was just the right amount of time. Well worth the trip.

Joe are guide worked in the mine for 10 years. Very informative tour 🌟. Who knew the rats were so important to the miners because they could feel vibrations before humans.

I would strongly recommend reservations for this tour. We were fortunate to have a guide who worked in the mine so he could give us a first hand view of what it was like. They provide rain coats and hard hats so you really don't have to worry about being cold down there.

This is a great tour! We appreciated that our tour guide use to be a miner in the mines. He told us many stories about his time working there and made the tour not only informational but entertaining. The tour was fantastic and I found two items I purchased from the sales room; beautiful turquoise and copper pieces. If you... More

Surprisingly fun! Guides are informative and have a sense of humor. Ride down and back is cool and seeing the actual working conditions is insightful. We went on a cold day and were great full for the jackets provided.

Wonderful one hour tour. This was $13.00 for adults and the temperature was 62 degrees. You sit on a little trolley and go in the mine 1400 feet real slow. Very organized and fun for all ages, we really enjoyed it.

Tour was about an hour and was very informative. Our guide was a retired miner who worked it the copper mines for over twenty years. He was knowledgable and funny. Visitors take a train down into the mine and there is some walking necessary.

It was a very good experience. Our guide was a former miner who not only knew the mine well he also helped create it. He was very informative and interesting and had a very entertaining way of telling his and the mines story.
