This is an open air "train" ride around the historical sections of Helena. If it is a cool day, I recommend that you dress warmly. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour of all the wonderful Victorian, historical homes in Helena, Reeder's Alley and Last Chance Gulch. We also went through the Capitol Complex and she... More

We hopped on board the Last Chance Tour Train in downtown Helena. it actually looks like a little train. Our guide Liz was great, nice radio voice and fun personality. Traveled a few different areas of town and learned something's about its history. Very affordable. I would recommend it, it is only an hour.

Went on the tour of Helena today with this outfit and for the $8.00 it was well worth the money. We saw, in an hour, a lot of the areas of Helena which were very interesting The people running this were very friendly and very knowledgable. The whole tour took a bit over an hour and it really was time... More

I loved the Museum and Capitol grounds where I used to work summers. I loved taking the tour train and seeing how the majestic old homes are being maintained as renovated as needed. Areas that were once down in the mouth are spruced up - the walking mall was lovely, Reeders Alley and we especially loved the Mediterranean Grill there.... More

This tram basically shows the entire town and interesting streets, buildings and history. The driver was an excellent host, provided tons of interesting information and stories and turned out to be the local middle school principal.

I've been wanting to do a Segway ride or tour for several years and finally got the chance. The owners for business are excellent to work with. Patient, informative, and very helpful. We arrived on time and they had us up and going in 15 minutes. Then off on the Segways for a tour of the town. I was surprised... More

Frankly I drove to Helena for the Capitol Building...wasn't expecting much else. Discovered this tour in our AAA Montana Guide Book and we called to see if the last tour was available, It was and so we decided to take it. It is a fantastic journey through Helena...a city with an interesting past and a great future! The tour opened... More

This Last Chance Tour was really nice…. The guide was very friendly, as was everyone in the City. We would drive down a street and everyone would be waving, smiling and saying Hello! I'm not sure I've ever seen that before, and I live in the South! We saw deer in peoples yards grazing… not the least bit concerned about... More

We had our first experience on segways today. Our family of four booked and watched the video necessary before arriving to Helena for the history tour. After our very patient tourguide, Avone, taught us all how to ride safely, we were off! Avone took us around town, giving us history of buildings, people, and how the town became what it... More
