Very cool experience riding a modified train into a former hard rock copper mine. Guides are mostly former miners and can spin a good story and share the story of working under the ground.

Queen Mine tour was very informative and you could ask questions from the guide who happened to be a miner himself. It's worth the modest fee to go on the underground tour.
