“Loved the historic tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

We loved the tours! We signed up for two tours: Butte City Underground Tour and the East Walking Tour. Both were great tours and we learned a lot of Butte history from our guide. Since we were the only family on the East Walking Tour our guide spent a bit of extra time explaining some of Butte's history with us. Our favorite part of the underground tour was seeing the old jail. That was fascinating!

“If this is the only thing you do in Butte”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

The wife and I did this tour and really enjoyed it. The gentleman that was doing it knows the history of the area and is more than willing to share it. We are going to go back in a few years and do it again as the society is working on more areas so this is work in progress and funded by the tour fees. More that worth the money paid for the tour. .

“Best tour in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2012

We took the underground city tour and was very surprised. Prohibition Rookwood Speakeasy is absolutely gorgeous. Hirbour Barber Shop had many surprises, and the city jail-cold damp and would not be someplace yu would want to see. Bob our tour guide was humorous and knowledgeable. This is the best in Butte.

“An Underground City A Must For Everyone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

This underground city tour is outstanding. I was uptown and walked in. My Guide is knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. Underground Hirbour Barber Shop and hidden prohibition illigal drinking establishment, below ground level city jail where Evel Knieval spent time, and the elegant Rookwood Speakeasy featured on the History Channel including the underground sidewalks was facinating to me. I was spellbound by this. Never saw anything like this in Colorado.

“The Butte Underground Tour is a must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

I read about the underground world of Butte in Montana's "Get Lost" app and I was not disappointed when I had a chance to take the tour in person. The guide is very good provides a great background on the city. There is a whole other level of Butte just below the sidewalk (the tour is similar to the Tunnels of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan).The tour of the underground jail and especially the Speak Easy is a must do.
