Impressive! Our guide was Great!

Don't miss the Academy. We were priviledged to witness the Plebe change over ceremony during our tour. The program is one to be respected and honorable.

Their ground was pretty and we felt their pride thorough out the campus. The visitor center was very informative. After or before the USNA visit, one can definitely enjoy the quaint downtown Annapolis.

Family of three arrived around 10am on a Saturday and were able to get right into a tour group. Our tour guide was exceedingly knowledgeable and wanted to show and tell us everything (he played football at the Academy in the 1970s or so). We saw and learned so much that another tour group that started 30 minutes after us,... More

Worth the time to walk the Naval Academy Yard and see the Chapel, John Paul Jone crypt, Memorial Hall,and Stribling Walk. Take the time to visit, but have photo ID as you will need to get through security since this is considered a military area.

Touring The USNA provides an upfront look at the quality provided to the students who are privileged to attend The Academy. The landscape and the halls echo history and pride.

Awesome visit. Great tours. Very informative. Got behind the scenes what Navy men do. Was able to eat on site. Beautiful churches, buildings, and awesome view of water. So clean.

What can I say, if you are in the area this is a MUST see. The buildings, the history, the cadets. Proud of our Naval history.

Very few places give one the sense of pride that comes from seeing the Naval Academy. The beautiful campus, steeped in history, inspiring beyond description is something everyone should see. The Naval museum, the crypt of John Paul Jones, the DON'T GIVE UP THE SHIP flag, the Naval Chapel and the environs give me pride to be an American. Go... More

Wonderful visit. I took the walking tour and it was well worth it. The guide was a wealth of information about prominent graduates of the USNA, including sports figures. Pointed out important buildings. It was also very touching when the guide when the guide spoke about the “brothers forever” in Bancroft Hall. So glad I signed up for the tour... More
