This tour is very worthwhile. It is run by a private company, not by the Academy. Our only problem was communication with the company. The website says to call 48 hours in advance if you need a bus with a lift to accommodate a wheelchair....More

Very informative 1 1/4 hour tour originates from the visitor center multiple times daily. School bus transportation holding 30 visitors. 2 on/off stops with very little walking involved so it’s appropriate for most. Buses do not appear wheelchair accessible. Our tour guide Joe was polite,...More

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.

We enjoyed the bus ride to see various buildings and the monuments and weaponry. It was a drizzily day and many people went back to the bus midway, but the walk around trophy point was most informative. Even in the mist, the view of the...More

This is a private organization that began public tours when tighter security was needed. They require that all visitors present identification before taking the tours. Although reservations are not needed, I booked it on line. The guide was informative and made sure to wait till...More

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.
