This is a tour of what was once a functioning mine. It is not a disney fake. Our tour guide actually worked in the mine many years ago. It was very interesting riding a mine train and traveling deep into the mine to see what a real miner would have experienced. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour makes it possible for you to comprehend the life of the miners and to realize the valuable work they performed. It was very informative and the old guide knew very well after more than 20 years as a miner how life had been down there.

Usually one does this along with the museum. Good for all except very small children. Gives a feeling of miners getting on a train to mine inside the mountain. On weekends be sure to call ahead as often sells out.

It was really interesting going down into the mine. Seeing what it was like for the men and mules that worked in there. I've never been into history stuff but I found this very interesting. My son thought it was cool also.

We have done this tour three times, and always bring out-of-town visitors here to experience the underground adventure. The history of this mine is well presented in displays and by the friendly tour guides. Many of the guides actually worked in this mine when it was active. Ride the little train cars deep into the mountain and see the tools... More

One of the highlights on a visit to Bisbee is the Queen Mine Tour. It is a well-organized and educational experience for any one 5 or older. With a work helmet and light your travel inside the mine to learn about hard-rock mining from an era gone by. Excellent tour guides. Both my grandsons (12 & 8) loved it. Located... More

The main station for buying tickets was fairly large and well kept, They had numerous rocks, jewelry and other souvenirs for sale. Small exhibit of things of cooper mining. Ok place to kill time for the... More

We had a great visit and Jim was a great tour guide to have. He kept my 10yr. old Daughter engaged and she had a really fun time going on the train. "Better than Disney," she said. Fun tour and great staff, highly recommend you visit if you get the chance;-)

Not to be missed experience that is fun informative and good value. Tours run by ex miners which makes it. Don't miss it.
