Alinea- Tasting or Tour?

Hi there...we have reservations for Valentine's Day weekend for Alinea, and I am counting down the days! I have been reading some articles, blogs, etc to get even more excited than I am right now-- and I have a question for those of you who have dined there:

From what I have read, it seems that the suggestion is for first-timers to do the 12 course tasting...but we have made reservations for the full tour (24 courses). Is this too overwhelming? We travel A LOT so chances are we might not circle back to Alinea for a while ...so I want to make the most of the experience. Any suggestions?

Thanks!
