Wedding photo tram tour

The Wedding Photo Tram Tour takes your guests aboard the Acorn Express open-air tram on a one-hour, narrated tour of the Arboretum grounds.

We'll provide background music or bring along your favorite CD to enjoy while guests take in the scenery and the views. Your private wedding tram makes one scenic photo stop of your choice along the way.
