Excellent trip back into history!

This is a fascinating tour with excellent, knowledgeable guides. The view of the difficult mining life is incredible. Take the full tour! It's worth every penny!

This was one of the best tour I have been on. The tour guides were a fountain of information. It was cold down in the mine but worth doing.

We're from the big city. We know nothing about mining. We know nothing about the lives of miners, in this case, copper miners. Do not miss this opportunity to learn first hand about mining and the incredibly tough life of miners, not to mention the lives of people living on Lake Superior 100 years ago: boom and bust. It's unforgettable... More

We drove to "Copper Country" looking for rocks and minerals and a place to go that we haven't been to already. The Quincy Mine was on our list of things to do. We weren't disappointed! The area has many standing old buildings to wander around if you have a while before or after your tour. You probably won't need reservations,... More

Very educational and easy access just outside of Hancock. You can do just a surface tour and see quite a bit about how mining worked, or pay a little more and go into the mine. Well worth it.

Asked several questions about the area, the mine, how to care for the copper jewelry. "I really don't know - I've only been here three months." She did know how to sell tickets for the tours and ring up purchases Unfortunately we didn't have time to take the tours where we would probably have gotten our questions answered

Kind of connected to the state parks and kind of not connected. Was not well explained. Expect to sign an agreement. Some of the tour is handled by persons that like their job and enjoy explaining the way the mine worked. One of the ladies was bored with her job and it came thorough with her part of the tour....

The tour is great and very informative. It's cold in the mine so dress for it! We brought our kids and they enjoyed it too, ages 9, 7, and 2. The 2 year old got fussy at parts but really enjoyed the train ride.
