This is an one hour tour on a Trolley that takes you through the downtown area, by great mansions with a conductor to tell you all about the great history of Helena, super laid back, wonderful fun trip and you might just learn something.

My niece and daughter did this tour- and according to their stories upon their return- I missed a great tour! They both thought the woman historian did a wonderful job. I'll come next year!

Bought tickets for the Haunted train tour MONTHS ago. The train was nowhere to be found. We went to 3 different locations and no train. Now we are out 60.00. Would not recommend.

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.

It is about 4 miles to the tour train & very easy to get to with main roads & the interstate nearby.
