This tour is guided on a replica of an old electric trolley car. The information given by the guide is comprehensive and interesting. It's a fun, good-weather activity for the whole family and is reasonably priced.

The trolley was located next door to our campground and had three daily tours. Since the driver was a local and the history teacher at a local high school, he had a lot of historical background, as well as comical stories about the area. Our first stop was Berkley Pit and the admission fee was waived for our tour. The... More

This is a comfortable way to enjoy the highlights and colorful history of Butte, Montana. I have entertained family visitors and also arranged a school tour for my high school age students. The knowledge and enthusiasm of the driver/tour guides make it fun and informative. I would recommend reservations if you have a large group.

As a Butte native who's been gone for over 30 years, this was an excellent reintroduction to the city I grew up in. I learned so many things that I didn't know, such as the history of Chinatown, the meaning of Tap 'er light, and the first Catholic Church built was St. Patrick's. The tour guide was a Butte native... More

The Butte Trolley Tour was the perfect way to start our visit to Butte. The trolley guide had an in-depth knowledge of the area, and provided insights throughout the historic district. The trolley tour also included a stop off at the Berkely Pit viewing stand.

This tour cost $17 each and was well worth spending an hour and a half touring the town. The information shared by the driver was very informative and he added his own personality with humour. Do take a jacket, even in summer the trolley was cold.

Butte is a surprising town, lots to see and do. We drove down the business route and stayed most of the day. Located the trolly tour, signed up, add took it. It's a 1.5 hour trolly tout aboard one of those curtsey trolly busses with uncomfortable wood slat benches. Our driver was a native, had lots of interesting facts and... More

Excellent. Butte has a fascinating mining history. The late 19th & early 20th century buildings & houses are spectacular. Our tour guide on this trolley tour was so knowledgeable, so interesting that I would almost say this tour was worth the airfare. I've been to Butte a few times but this was the first tour. It was the best illustrated... More

My friends and I signed up for this trolley tour of Butte. It was great! We rode around the area while our tour guide, I believe he was a school teacher, pointed out historical buildings and gave an amazing explanation of each which really captured our attention. We went to the Pit and went in to see this Super Fund... More
