Probably the best anthracite mine tour. We were able to see all the elements of coal mining in the tour. The tour guide was very genuine and full of useful facts.

Is it suitable for pregnant woman? I saw the comments "damp, wet inside, and bumpy ride, etc". I called the company but no one picked up. Will try again. Anyone can give me a better idea? Thank you!

Depending on how far along you are, getting into the car may be tricky. The roughness of ride was minor, definitely damp.
