We highly recommend this fascinating city tour of the old historic district before you do anything else. This place is full of old mines and has a very interesting history. The tour guides are very personable and seem to enjoy sharing the history of this town. At one time in its heyday there were over 100 mines here and over... More

The trolley tour was very informative about an old city. The age of the buildings and the upkeep were a very pleasant surprise. We only passed through and next time plan to stay longer. The city is overseen by the Lady of Rockies. The tour was most interesting and informative about the mining out west.

From what I understand, there are 2 main drivers for the trolley this year. Both drivers are teachers in the local schools and have great background on the area. As part of the tour, you are able to stop at the berkley pit viewing stand and than get the tour of the historical part of town.

Have you ever met a school teacher that did not love the sound of their own voice? Me either (captive audience). Chris is a local history teacher. That said Chris, a Montana native - not a Butte native (but his wife is), has a love for this town that is infectious. Because of his involvement with the local generations past... More

We had a great time on this tour. The trolley leaves from the visitors center and tours uptown Butte and the Berkley Pit. You get off the trolley at the pit and the tour guide tells a lot about the mining in Butte. You see a lot of the historical places in Butte including an old brothel and the homes... More

We were only 'passing through' Butte, but arrived in time to catch the last trolley tour of the day. We have always found such tours helpful for either a quick and informative overview when time is limited, or to help set priorities when we have more time. Butte turned out to be a surprisingly interesting city. In addition to the... More

We tried to do a search of Butte before we went and there was nothing to do in this town. Unfortunately there were no previous reviews as there is tons to do in this town. Most of them are on a schedule so you need to pre-plan to get everything in. We went just because it was a different route... More

We went on a chilly day; dress for the weather. The guide was constantly giving great info. It's a very efficient way to see the town. Take the tour early in your visit, so you can take note of the places you want to go back to.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of Butte history. We had a good introduction to many different areas of Butte, and also were given tips on places to go back and check out. Our guide was born and raised in Butte so he was able to answer everyone's questions, even the "off the wall" difficult ones. We arrived late, just... More
