This tour offers an otherwise overlooked perspective of Butte! During the city's most industrious era, real estate was at an all-time high. Thus, underground sidewalks (yes, two-story sidewalks!) were constructed, making use of "basement" space as prime real estate. These underground stores and hotels often...More

We took the standard Butte City Underground Tour and came away with a real appreciation for the city. It gave us a great feel for what a huge place this was in the early 20th century and how wild it remained. Highlights were the city...More

Our guide made the history of Butte come alive to us as we visited the city. The jail cells and stories were particularly interesting! I encourage you to take the time.

The tour starts off slowly with a 15 minute sit down lecture about the history of Butte. It's quite interesting if you like geology. However, the best part of the tour is to go underground to see gems such as a barbers shop, jail and...More

We have visited Butte many times over the past decade or so, and always find something new to see. This time we wanted to see some of the hidden gems underground. Evidently decades ago areas of the city were abandoned, and forgotten over time. More...More
