We weren't sure if we should take the time for this tour but all of us were so glad we did! Our guide was very knowledgeable with the answer to almost every question anyone asked. The tour lasted almost two hours and we came away with a real appreciation of Butte, both its history and present day charm. Just a... More

Take a ride on a trolley to see the town. Sounds great until the seats are really uncomfortable and the guide isn't all that great. I've been on worse tours and I've been on better. This one was just lackluster.

Well worth the price! You get a 2+ hour open air trolley ride all around Butte, stopping at the Berkeley Pit. You also go by one of the Copper King mansions, the Cabbage Patch, uptown historic buildings, and loads of stories of Old Butte, sometimes up to the World Museum of Mining

This tour is guided on a replica of an old electric trolley car. The information given by the guide is comprehensive and interesting. It's a fun, good-weather activity for the whole family and is reasonably priced.

The trolley was located next door to our campground and had three daily tours. Since the driver was a local and the history teacher at a local high school, he had a lot of historical background, as well as comical stories about the area. Our first stop was Berkley Pit and the admission fee was waived for our tour. The... More

This is a comfortable way to enjoy the highlights and colorful history of Butte, Montana. I have entertained family visitors and also arranged a school tour for my high school age students. The knowledge and enthusiasm of the driver/tour guides make it fun and informative. I would recommend reservations if you have a large group.

As a Butte native who's been gone for over 30 years, this was an excellent reintroduction to the city I grew up in. I learned so many things that I didn't know, such as the history of Chinatown, the meaning of Tap 'er light, and the first Catholic Church built was St. Patrick's. The tour guide was a Butte native... More

The Butte Trolley Tour was the perfect way to start our visit to Butte. The trolley guide had an in-depth knowledge of the area, and provided insights throughout the historic district. The trolley tour also included a stop off at the Berkely Pit viewing stand.

This tour cost $17 each and was well worth spending an hour and a half touring the town. The information shared by the driver was very informative and he added his own personality with humour. Do take a jacket, even in summer the trolley was cold.
