Highly Recommended

This walking tour was excellent and our guide was very knowledgeable and made it a fascinating two hour walk around the cemetery learning about the background and characters buried there. Highlights were the changing of the guard and the graves of the Kennedy family.

A stunning memorial.

This was one of the highlights of our visit to Washington DC. The grounds were spotless and the staff very helpful. This is solemn ground and immaculately maintained and present. The changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier was very impressive.

I would say no as we did a lot of walking through the cemetery on the grass and not on the paved roads.
