Next, we'll visit Nelson's Cheese Factory and Stockholm Pie & General Store. This afternoon we visit the National Eagle Center located in Wabasha, Minnesota. It is home to several non-releasable Bald Eagles and a nesting place for hundreds more, encapsulating a world in which the iconic power and presence of eagles is known, respected, advocated for, and protected.

Tips for Perkiomen motorcoach drivers and tour escorts are not included in the price of this tour. We feel that these gratuities should be extended on an individual basis and dictated by the level of service provided.

Motorcoach seating is assigned at the time of reservation but cannot be guaranteed. Although we do our best to keep each traveler in the seat assigned at the time of reservation, there are times that it is necessary to move seat locations.
