This was such an interesting tour! We spend our winters in Arizona, and you always hear references to the mining history of the state, but this tour really helps you see it close up. They outfit you with safety equipment including hard hats, miners lights,...More

We took both our adult sons and our 13 year-old grandson on this tour. They found it exciting and enjoyed riding the train down into the mine. The guide was retired from working the mine and was very knowledgeable..I would highly recommend it.
