Is there anything wrong with putting "xingchisi xiawu" right after "women" rather than before it?

参观 is to visit a place, usually for information, an overview or as an experience. We can use it on visiting museums, galleries, factories, schools, offices. Usually it is not used on visiting natural sceneries or landscape.
我们参观了供应商的新生产线。
We visited the new production line of our supplier.

观光 is to visit for touristic purpose. It does not carry a direct object.
我们在华盛顿四处观光。
We visited around in Washington.

Fantastic explanation, thanks! In English, 观光 seems to be the equivalent of "to go sightseeing".

Is the 会 necessary? It seems like we have had other sentences with future action where if the time is explicit that 会 was not required.

In this case, without 会 the Thursday afternoon in question might be in the future or in the past (or possibly even a habitual thing).

Good thought though :)
