Attraction details
Owner description: The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in the Tombstone Mining District, which started the mining boom which resulted in the incorporation of the City of Tombstone. When you take the tour, you will be shown through the original 1879 workings by a knowledgeable guide, and learn all about nineteenth century hard rock silver mining. You'll see what the ore looked like, learn about how it was processed, see some beautiful rocks and minerals, and artifacts and structures that have been in place for 130 years. This is one of the mines owned by Ed Schieffelin, the founder of the town, part of the Tombstone Mill and Mining Company, which he founded as well. The Goodenough Mine Tour is the most authentic and unique attraction in the City of Tombstone, and you'll see the results of the hard work of the miners. It's an experience that you will enjoy.

This was a fun and interesting tour as well as break from the heat. It wouldn't have been the same without our tour guide James.

What an a amazing experience! It was nice to get into a small group as it made it nice to be able to ask a lot of questions. Russell was very knowledgeable and fun. I am so glad we put this as one of our “must see” while we’re in Tombstone.

Contrary to the heading that Yelp showed in February 2018, the mine tour is not closed. We went on a tour on February 24, 2018. (Miner Mike, who was taking the tickets, said that it had been closed for two months during the summer while ownership changed). The tour goes down about 100 feet into the mine and took us about 45 minutes to an hour. In my opinion, this was better than or at least as good as the tour in Bisbee and was worth the money spent (unlike the gun show at the OK Corral, which was overpriced for what it delivers). One of the tour guides told me they are working on opening a three-hour tour of the Tough Nut Mine later this year that will go deeper than the 100-foot level.

The guide made this tour! Funny and provided interesting facts from start to finish. Would recommend this tour to understand what led to the formation of the town of Tombstone and the life and work of a miner in the 1800’s. Underground walking tour takes you through various level of the mine and helps the viewer better understand the harsh conditions. Low headroom throughout the tour necessitate the use of the safety helmet the tour operator provides.
