This tour personifies Tombstone for me. The other tours and museums were all very interesting and entertaining, but touring the mine was the most real thing we did. Walking through the tunnels that had been dynamited and then dug by hand, seeing the lunch buckets, the lanterns, the used tools, all in the places where they were used, was like traveling back in time.
Our guide was knowledgeable about the history of the mine. Even better, he'd been one of the people who had actually worked to re-open the mines (the entrances had been filled in after the mines had been closed down) and his experiences made for interesting stories.
Tombstone was a mining town, and being down in the mine gave me the feeling that I'd really, finally, been to Tombstone.
