The tour was great and very informative. The tour lasted an hour but enough. The glimpse About The lives OF The cadets is an eye opener. The discipline, honor and dignity about The Academy signifies military life ideally. A must tour to take.

Highly recommended by local friends to visit West Point. Decided to drive to the academy from NY which was barely 50miles. Traffic in the afternoon wasn’t too bad. Required a little walk as parking was easily available. Pleasant season during fall to visit the campus....More

Good overview tour for first time visitors, pick up bus in front of new visitors center and West Point museum. 75 minutes with knowledgeable guide, a Swedish transplant. Just right length. Longer tour available with addition of WP cemetery, an additional hour.

If you want the complete West Point experience, stay at the Hotel Thayer. It is right next to the Academy and has history and ghosts going for it. Otherwise, stay at one of the wonderful Inns in Cold Harbor.
