I know this review is late, so please pardon me for that. It was suggested that if I want to see the best of Helena then my answer was Last Chance Tours. The staff was super friendly and knowledgable. It really was THE best way to see Helena. Definitely check out this tour if you can.

The tour is labeled as kid friendly, but I would not agree. The kids (under 10 years old) enjoyed riding on the train, but they were not interested in the content – learning about the history of Helena and driving through some historical districts. Once the novelty of riding in an open air train wore off, they became bored. I... More

We really enjoyed our time on this train. The driver was friendly and very informative about local history, even some of the shadier aspects. We traveled all over the area and saw plenty of spots we might have otherwise missed. Buy your tickets early - they can sell out pretty quickly, or at least they did when we were there.... More

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.

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
