Well worth the money, this tour takes you 1500 feet into the Queen mines to see the work done and equipment used since 1875. Everything from hammer and chisel to air powered jack hammers were on display down in the chilly depths. Our guide was an ex-miner and full of great facts and information. You get off of the little mine train 3 times to walk around ( in a work area, in a large mined out cave, and in a blasting area). Not scary at all despite being surrounded by nothing but rock and darkness. Each person gets a mining light and when the groups are together its plenty bright . Additionally each tunnel is pretty wide, so claustrophobia shouldn't be a problem. I was afraid this would be a touristy train ride through a cave, but it was the real deal. Great fun and really informational. Highly recommended.
