The conductor/guide was very knowledgeable about the human, natural, and architectural history of Helena. He was also personal, presenting information in a way that is mostly accessible to middle school or upper-level grade school children, while still informative for adults. The trolley is open air,...More

Fantastic Ride! It was easy to schedule Montana City School's entire third grade class in June. The kids were thrilled, it was an entertaining and informative journey through Helena's history! Thank you Skid Sekerak and crew!

The tour takes around 1 hour, and covered all the main historic sites of Helena. It was easiier than walking around the sites! A good tour if you are short of time and want to see the main historical areas.

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.
