We only did the Pacific theater in four hours. The movie narrated by Tom Hanks is terrific but not for anyone with war related PTSD. Loved the train journey at the beginning - go to see what I mean. Engaging vetetans meet and greet you.More

Are the tours handicapped accessible? I am handicapped and will be using my electric scooter. Can the West Pac tour and the Display Hangar tour be combined? Would we have to book these separately? My husband and I are planning a visit to Colorado Springs the third week of June. Thank you for your help!
