The two tour was well worth the money. West Point is a very large campus and the bus tour makes it possible to get a real good picture of live at the academy. If you are a history buff you will learn a lot about...More

Thank you for your response. West Point is an Academy (college) teaching and training our future military leaders. The cadets are not here to act as tour guides for the general public. As the official tour company for the Academy, our guides are all trained...More

The short tour does not visit the cemetery. The 2 hour tour does. The added cost is just a couple of dollars. Plenty to see in WP but the cemetery has extra history and stories. Note the new security arrangements. You need to provide info...More

Our group had a two hour guided bus tour of the West Point Military Academy which covered the highlights of the reservation including the Cadet Chapel, parade grounds, West Point Cemetery and Trophy Point overlooking the beautiful Hudson River Valley. Truly worth a visit.

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.

There was a significant amount of walking involved at each stop the bus made. There was not too much uphill walking but our guide moved along at a good pace.
