What geocachers are saying about the Helena Montana GeoTour:

“I am visiting Montana from Lubbock, Texas, and wanted to see your capital building. It is very pretty and I’m glad Montana was able to restore it to its original grandeur. I took the guided tour — very informative and interesting. Helena seems to be such a nice little city. Thanks for the cache.” –P. M. McNabb

“We were on holidays to Yellowstone Park from Canada and when we heard about your GeoTour, we simply could not resist doing it. We changed our route and came to Helena and we are so glad we did. This was a spectacular adventure and the highlight of our trip, well done!” – Kelly S., Alberta, Canada

What geocachers are saying about this GeoTour:

“I just spent 4 days in the Thunder Bay area and did one traditional and three Multi-Caches there so when I knew I was driving from Sudbury to Orillia today I loaded this cache into my GPS to stop and find it. What a great series of caches this is, love the history lesson and the places the caches take me to. T4TC!” – Desafio

“…This is the second cache in the series for me and I now have 30 points. To get more points I need to go further north. Because of this I’m now planning a Northern Ontario tour for next spring to explore the northern towns and find some more HHS caches. I’ve never been north of Sault Ste Marie / Sudbury / North Bay, so I’m looking forward to the adventure. It’s great that Parks Canada is embracing GeoCaching! Thanks for setting up this great cache and for bringing me here. Thanks for the fun Parka, you busy little beaver!…” –swed31
