Outfitted in hard hat, miner’s headlamp and a yellow slicker, thousands of Bisbee visitors descend into the Queen Mine Tour each year—heading underground and back in time. Tour guides, retired Phelps Dodge employees, lead the group 1,500 feet into the mine and recount mining days, techniques, dangers and drama. Adding a personal touch, the miner-turned-tour guides help visitors experience what it was like to work underground.Work out when and for how long to visit Queen Mine Tour and other Bisbee attractions using our handy Bisbee trip maker tool .
Five tours depart each day, seven days a week, from the Queen Mine Tour Building, located immediately south of Old Bisbee’s business district, off the U.S. 80 interchange.
Queen Mine Tour Reviews
Great tour and having an actual Queens miner lead it was terrific. Benny did a super job of bringing his experiences to life in this guided tour 1600 feet inside the mine. Recommend you make reservations as it fills fast.
Had a great tour of the mine! The guide was very informative. Told us how the miners worked and how the ore was removed. We toured the day before Labor Day and it was vey crowded. We arrived at the ticket counter before 11AM and got a reservation for the 2 PM tour. Just a suggestion if you would like to tour, call ahead and make a reservation.
