This ride was an excellent way to learn Helena history and see it first hand. We are from Ohio and had never been to Helena before. Our conductor made the trip very interesting.

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.
