Most good LBS can get a tandem of some sort for you. If you can hire or borrow one first to see if you and your stoker enjoy it, that would be good. If you go ahead and buy a tandem don't get a high end one for your first tandem because the novelty might wear off, you can always update if you get hooked.
Like simsi our tandem is an Apollo, which I've modded with 40 hole Velocity rims, drop bars, a 52 tooth chain ring and a 11/27 rear cassette. I could do more, but with 2 roadies, a MTB, 2 Raleigh 20 bikes and more to play with, it will do for now or I'll update later for a better bike.
