If you want a whirlwind tour, you will like this one. We had twenty minutes to tour the Korean War, Lincoln and Vietnam Memorials. We spent a disproportionate amount of time at the WWII and Jefferson memorials. I would not recommend this tour.

My mother walks slowly due to a knee issue and they were not very accomodating. I would call around and ask the tour companies to see if they have wheelchairs that they can provide.
