This narrated tour gives a good introduction to the major tourist sites in Helena. I believe that the tour has been offered for decades which is a tribute to its popularity. Recommended.

A very informative and interesting tour with a great engineer/guide. We loved it. We brought a group of disabled adults over from Butte to visit the museum and take the train tour and they had a wonderful time ~ thanks so much!!

Sadly I think the answer is no for the regular tour. However is you call 406-442-1023 they might be able to arrange it. I do know they have other tour options and buses. Google the Last Chance Tours for a brochure.
