We really enjoyed the tour. It last 1hr and was very informative. You stop a few times and get off of the train, one stop had 36 stairs not that hard and the other stop was on level ground.

This tour was very well done. We really got the feeling of being a miner. We dressed the part. We rode into the mine on a shuttle. Our guide had worked the mine for seven years. Everything was explained thoroughly.

Different from the Asarco Mine Tour in that you take a little train underground, along with about 40 other people. The guide was an elderly gentleman who was very nice but hard to understand.
Worthwhile for one visit.

While visiting Bisbee with my wife and 9 year old grandson, we took the Queen Mine tour. We have been on mine tours in other states and this one is done very well. Our guide Dan was a former mine worker in the area and was very knowledgeable and informative. His narrative about the methods and equipment used from the early days to when the mine closed were interesting and fun for all ages. As expected, it is dusty and there is some walking to be done, but after all it is a mine tour. This attraction is very popular, so reservations are essential.

The tours are presented by miners that worked in the mine...they are great story tellers. The tour doesn't cost much, and it is really worth it.
