If your stomach tolerates these kinds of things and you have any interest in how they mined this area, then this is a can't miss tour. You ride a small tight train into the middle of the mountain and hear presentations on how copper, silver,...More

This is a "Must Do" in the Bisbee area. The tour is given by former miners who actually worked in the mine and so are truly knowledgeable. Some of the original equipment is there to see. You will get a real feel for what mining...More

Do I need to wear old clothing or specific shoes? Trying to plan ahead in case it's extremely dirty. Thanks!

No need for old clothes or shoes, you don't get dirty. Bring a sweatshirt as it's cold in the mines. Make sure you have a reservation, too. Enjoy!
How would an older person manage this tour that has limited walking capability?

I wouldn't recommend this tour for anyone who is unsure on their feet. The floors are uneven, with loose stoned and rock. There are some steps to climb and descend. It would not be safe or comfortable
Do we need to make reservations ahead or can we just show up to do the mine tour?

we were there midweek, in april, and could make reservations for about 90 minutes later. all tours were full, so I'd say its best to make a booking, particularly if its high season.
