I'm a Helena native and I learned things from our guide "Boots". Her hour long commentary was always informative and entertaining, she shared great info about the history Helena. This is a great way for visitors to get oriented to Montana's capital city. Very worthwhile!

The people that run this are so friendly. Get there early to get your tickets and then go to the historical society while you wait. The tour is about an hour and you go through all the areas of Helena. I'm sorry I didn't take notes so later I could go back to some of the spots or it would... More

Train tour/guide was wonderful. Toured around Capitol, various mansions and historical downtown buildings. Guide was a local person with great knowledge on the history of Helena. Price was reasonable for the 1 hour tour.

Could not use this tour service as much as we would have like to. The first tour is at 11 a.m. and we needed to get going...headed to Glacier. So, did our own driving/stopping tour in less than an hour: cathedral, state capitol, Reeders Alley and mansions district.

I thought this was a very interesting "train ride" through Helena. The guide shared lots of great historical info. We rode past the capital, through neighborhoods of historical homes, and Last Chance Gulch. I recommend this tour as a great way to learn about Helena and its history for adults. Unfortunately my kids were so bored they actually feel asleep.... More

Loved learning how to ride the Segway in Helena. My husband, son and I, all learned quickly and the instructor, Avone Holmes, couldn't have been nicer. It was so fun to tootle around on those things. Best money we've spent on vacation in a long time!

This one hour 'train' tour around Helena is a great way to see the city. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic about Helena. She was also super knowledgeable about the city. This is a great starting point to seeing Helena as you can then go back to the parts of the city you want to spend more time in.

A friend was visiting from Oregon. A former Montanan, she wanted to re-connect with her heritage. We booked tickets on the Last Chance Tour train. As the train wound through historic locations in Helena, the narrator informed travelers of local history and colorful renditions of days gone by. We were not disappointed.
