This tour is the most comprehensive and educational tour of Washington's monuments and memorials. Because the tour guide is a retired school teacher, I would view this as a tour with an education - -quite the learning experience! The guide is engaging (with all of...More

I would certainly think so but to confirm you can email Tim directly from his website as he's very responsive.
I am interested in your tours, but need to know if they are wheelchair-accessible. I can walk, but not long distances, will have others with me to push my wheelchair.

This a fairly considerable walk and also lots of standing. The tour takes a minimum of 3 hours . If there is anyway you can do it it's highly recommended but I suggest a fold up chair/ stick
What is the website for this tour?
