My family did the Walk of the Town/ Monumental Stories tour on May 29. It was an excellent tour. Tim gave us ton's of information and neat facts. We highly recommend him. We can't recommend this tour enough. Our three kids loved it too!

I would certainly think so but to confirm you can email Tim directly from his website as he's very responsive.

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
