Went on the mine tour with our friends and had a great time. The staff working the tour and helping you with equipment did a great job. I think we lucked out when we got Dave for our guide. Dave was a miner for 11 years (knows what he is talking about), a police officer and finally a judge before... More

Reservations are important as we were unable to get in our first try. Straddling a padded seat on a mine train riding on the original tracks, we entered the mine with guide Joe, a 40-year mine veteran. His stories were enlightening, and gave the full flavor of a miner's life. Two stops afford walks into large 'stopes' where miners have... More

Loved our Queen Mine Tour. The price was right, and our mine tour was well worth our time. The stories told about the mine made me realize how important this mine was to Bisbee. I had such a great time and would do this tour again. It is a must for visitors.

With a steady 47 degrees temperature year round the Mine is the place to be in the hot summer while visiting Bisbee, AZ. The tour takes about 1 hour and is fine for kids and adults, but be sure to bring a jacket for the Mine ride. The tour guides are very informative and answer all questions and there is... More

If you are in Bisbee Arizona, the Queen Copper mine tour is something you MUST do! It is a well organized and affordable experience that is not only fun, but educational. The tour guides are ex-miners, and our guide was excellent! You dress up in safety gear, ride a trolley into the mine, learn about mining, the history of mining... More

Excellent tour guide gave us a unique look into mining and how it intertwined with Bisbee. Heard rumors the trip was claustrophobic, but that is an urban legend. Felt very comfortable and safe.

Fun little mine tour if you want to learn about mines and what it was like to work in one. Tour guides are actual miners who have worked underground so you get first hand knowledge. Highly recommend calling ahead and making a reservation so you can be sure to get enough tickets for everyone in your group. This was my... More

As long as you don't get claustrophobic easily, this is a really fun learning experience. You will learn more in a short time about the mining industry than by any other means. The guides are actual former miners in THIS mine and they know their stuff. They will answer your questions about mining, minerals, and mine safety. You will be... More

We had taken this tour over ten years ago and enjoyed it this time also. It's very informative and I think the fact that our guide actually worked there at one time made it even better. He was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. One thing that has changed is that they no longer have everyone turn off their... More

We did this tour with six adults and five kids, and everyone enjoyed it. The guides are very knowledgeable and informative. After riding the tram in, you get off twice and see actual working areas as they were long ago. I have claustrophobia, but did not have any issues. I guess I was occupied with the information being presented.
