Nice tour if you like architecture and mansions. The guide was knowledgeable and easy to hear through the speakers on the train. It doesn't matter where you sit or which car you are on.

Was told about the Train and went to ride except it was Sunday and they don't run on Sunday. The two of us and 8 others that were there left disappointed. Our trip plans did not allow to come back!

Helena really isn't a very interesting place, but this tour is worth it. We enjoyed it and our guide was fun.

Visited on a Holiday weekend and they had extra trains running. Tour guide/driver was excellent with a great sense of humor. Went with friends and there was plenty of room so we all sat together. The last train car has a wheelchair lift if needed.

We like to take a tour of the area we're in so we can pick what we want to visit. The Last Chance Tours is just what we look for. You learn about the history of the area and end up finding out about spots you never knew existed. The tour guide was a native of Helena and was very... More

The faux train tour of Helena Montana is excellent. Lasting one hour, it takes you by all the interesting areas of Helena, with an excellent narration all the way. Plan to grab your seat a half hour earlier if you want to ride forward facing. With the $8 ticket ($7.50 for Seniors) you get a two for one entry into... More

Went on the hour-long tour train of Helena. Very interesting, especially if you enjoy history. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and funny. Relaxing trip around a beautiful city. I love Helena!
