The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in the Tombstone Mining District, which started the mining boom which resulted in the incorporation of the City of Tombstone. When you take the tour, you will be shown through the original 1879 workings by a knowledgeable guide, and learn all about nineteenth century hard rock silver mining. You'll see what the ore looked like, learn about how it was processed, see some beautiful rocks and minerals, and artifacts and structures that have been in place for 130 years. This is one of the mines owned by Ed Schieffelin, the founder of the town, part of the Tombstone Mill and Mining Company, which he founded as well. The Goodenough Mine Tour is the most authentic and unique attraction in the City of Tombstone, and you'll see the results of the hard work of the miners. It's an experience that you will enjoy.

Hopefully you get James as your guide. He was informative and a fun guide. I'd say he made the tour. They take you underground and thru the main section of the mine.

We were a family of with 3 kids and i wasn't sure if they would enjoy it, but they all learnt a lot and really enjoyed it. The guide was great, good sense of humour but very knowledgeable. it was about the right amount of time (45 mins) for the kids. quite amazing to see just how hard those miners... More

I expected a little more from this tour. It was cooler in the mine. The most interesting part of the tour was the items that the workers found when they went in to get it ready for tours.

This was fascinating. We had the guide to ourselves which was a bonus as we could ask as many questions as we wanted and spend time looking at different parts of the mine. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgable.

We took the 45 min tour. We would have preferred the longer 3 hour tour but their website was unclear about how to sign up for that option. So when we got there we only had the shortest one to choose from. Very interesting and informative.

Very informational tour guide that took us down into the mine. He had a great sense of humor as well and was very informed of the mining process and how it all worked back in the day. Nice and cool down there in the mine too, after a scorching day out in the sun.

This mine tour was so informational and educational as well. The trek was not difficult and the mine was very cool which felt wonderful considering it was at least 103 degrees the day we visited. This mine is located a couple of blocks into Tombstone and we might have missed it had it not been for the trolley ride we... More

We went down into the mine. There were 60 steps and the pathways were pretty clear although I would have liked more light when I traveled from place to place--but I had a bad knee and wanted to see where I was walking. The mine history is worth listening to and our guide was wonderful and extremely knowledgable. It was... More

We visited during "Wyatt Earp" days and the weather was very mild compared to the temps that chased us out...119! Nonetheless, high 80's was still warm and we enjoyed the cool temperatures of the mine. If you have trouble going up and down stairs or steep inclines, this tour may not be for you. For all others, it was very... More
