“Do this first when you get to Helena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

Helena has so much to see. The first thing we did was to take this train/trolley tour. Our tour guide was a teacher and had much knowledge of the city. The cost was $14 for two adults. We boarded right across from the capitol building & in front of the Montana Historical Society. There was plenty of parking nearby. The best things of Helena you will see on this tour – the beautiful capitol, the Cathedral of St Helena, Reeder’s Ally, the original & current governor’s homes, many beautiful historical homes & much more. It doesn’t matter what you age is – there were children up to folks in their 80’s. Everyone enjoyed the tour.

Get your ticket well ahead of time. We purchased our ticket and then spent some time in the museum while waiting for the tour to start.

If you have questions ahead of time – email lholmes@lctours.com.

“Fun tour worth the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

Interesting tour, unlike any tour I have taken before, great way to see much of an interesting gold boom town that survived. Town would be hard to navigate on your own

“A very good tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2011

Going on this little tour train gives you a real opportunity to locate the places of interest in downtown Helena. The guide has a wonderful songful voice and a great sense of humour. He is a mine of useful information. We remembered much of what he told us, so it was easy to go back on foot to re-visit all the houses and museums we saw on the tour.

“Best - Last Chance”

Hi, was in Helena for the night and had a free afternoon. Took the Last chance Tour and was very surprised at how much I ended up learning about the city. Well worth the price.
