I really enjoyed the haunted trolley. The speaker was very informative and knowledgeable. She took time to ask patrons for their experiences. Stopped at little bakery with delicious pastries at the end of the tour. Would recommend.

This seems to be the only tour group in Helena, MT and was closed since Labor Day. The recorded message said it was closed since Labor Day, but the AAA booklet said their last day was Sept. 30 -the day I was there.

Friends from New Mexico loved the history they learned on the tour. They said they lived in a town for 4 years and realize they know very little about the history of their town. Very impressed with the tour and the information the driver/guide shared.

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.
