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;-)

The Copper Queen Mine tour is very worthwhile.After donning protective clothing and hard hat with flashlight,you ride on a train over the rails for a 45 minute tour underground into a now closed mine.The docent used to be a miner and was outstanding in presentation and conversation.Not much else to do in Bisbee but tour,and this is good

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

Bisbee is a pretty little town and the mine is a very cool part of it. It is very interesting, but not for the claustrophobic. The little store attached to it has really cute souvenirs. Well worth a visit.

The tour was led by two former workers at the mine. Everything about the tour was great; from the staging, to the ride on the mine train, and all the stops and information in the mines. It's unbelievable what the early miners did.

Going into a mine with your gear on and getting your tag is an experience. Seeing how hard men labored. This is great for kids and adults. A must for anyone visiting. The men who run the tour are actual miners so they can answer any questions you have and they are a hoot.

Had a great time in the Queen Mine. Guides are very knowledgeable as they worked in the mine. Jim, our main guide, answered lots of questions and made it fun. Donnie kept us safe. Husband told them it was my birthday, so I had a special seat toward the end of the tour on the Sanitation Car!

My grandson and I took the Queen Mine Tour and left my husband topside as he is claustrophobic. We had a ball! The outfitting before the ride in is pretty awesome in itself. Each "miner" is outfitted with a reflective vest, miner's helmet, belt and flashlight. Then you get on the cart that takes you deep into the mine. We... More

Great way to see what copper mining was like. Riding the "carts" through the mine gives one a first hand experience into the daily life of a miner. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and were able to see how mining changed over the years at the Queen Mine. Some stairs to climb to view one of the discussion areas.

We enjoyed hearing interesting geology facts, seeing the mine equipment, and hearing about the daily operations and dangers of copper mine workers. The guides seemed very knowledgeable. One thing to point out: the mine is not a place where it's pleasant for anyone to have children around them misbehaving. Talkative little ones make it difficult to hear the guides, and... More
