- TOUR CHOICES: On the County Line Tour you will visit the churches at Moravia and St. John, and you may choose two of the three museums in Schulenburg.
- RESERVATIONS/TOUR FEE: Select your date well in advance and call us to book your visit. A deposit of $50.00 is required and must be received 2 weeks prior to the scheduled date in order to guarantee that date for your tour. The County Line Tour itself is $8.00 per person. The deposit will be deducted from your total. No tours will be conducted unless the balance is paid in full on or before arrival. Your tour fee covers the basic cost for the Chamber operation of tours, and a portion of the fees are given to each of the churches and museums that you visit.
- TOUR GUIDES: A local tour guide will meet you at the Greater Schulenburg Chamber of Commerce Tourism Center at your scheduled tour time. He or she will then “step on” your vehicle and accompany you throughout the tour. During the tour, your guide will point out unusual, interesting, or historical sites of the area as you travel through the countryside. Tour guides are volunteers and are not compensated by the Chamber. The customary gratuity given to the guide is a minimum of $40.00. Feel free to give more, especially for larger groups of 30 or more, as it would be greatly appreciated.
