As has already been pointed out, it is four hours and does involve a fair number of hills. My wife and I took the tour this summer. When we took it, Don gave us a choice of climbing some hills to see two more houses or to take a detour where he retells the "Whosis Kid". Apparently, he doesn't do the "Whosis Kid" bit often. If you get a chance, ask for it.

Also as already pointed out, the tour ends at John's Bar & Grill. Don will sit and talk Hammett and Willeford for a long while if you are interested. And yes, he'll point out a few Willeford sites along the way.

Very much worth the walk. And the slight sunburn that I got doing it.
