The Tours

We love giving tours to our guests — young and old(er) and in between — and showing off this beautiful place!

Beautiful! Wonderful guide! Kudos to ALL volunteers!"

-Donna and Jay Pouzar | LaPorte, IN

Request a no-cost, guided tour. Walking or riding. You'll be glad you did! The duration of a tour can be from 45" to 90" and can be customized depending on:

  1. how much time you have,
  2. how much time you would like to spend on a tour, and/or
  3. what you would like to see.

Due to higher demand, please allow additional time for scheduling your tour during our Peak Season:

  • Peak Season (June, July, August). Please plan to book your tour time a week in advance.
  • In-Season (May, Sept, Oct). Please plan to book your tour time a few days in advance.


"It has been a great experience and a pleasure volunteering as one of our Dubuque Arboretum tour guides. Guests are blown away with appreciation of what volunteers have dreamt, implemented, and hope to share for longevity."
