Ali, thanks for the question.  It might be good to clarify which walk through.  It seems most have assumed it is a traditional sale and final walk through, and it would most likely be best for the Realtor to accompany you.  However, if you are referring to one of the walk throughs for a new build home, it may not be necessary for the Realtor to attend and some builders strongly discourage the agent for preliminary walk throughs.

Yes, as a buyer your agent should accompany you. If there are any issues that should arise your agent will know how to address them.

It is very typical for the agent to escort the client, they are responsible to protect not only you, but the seller's home and personal property.
Best wishes, Jim

I was always taught to escort clients on walk throughs and always will unless there are time management emergencies.

Yes.   The agent should be with you during walk through.   If you don't want the agent to talk, that's fine, just tell the agent to come along quietly.  

You are walking through the seller's private property, and for an agent to allow a potential buyer to walk through unescorted would not be protecting the propoerty.   As a seller, I would file complaints with the local board of realtors if  agents allowed their clients to be unescorted.

I would say Yes in case there are any issues that the Realtor needs to discuss and/or negotiate with the other Realtor. I've had clients though who did the walk through on their own and we were fortunate because there were no issues.
