Stopping at West Point was a compromise... in exchange for my husband and my two teenage sons (14 and 18) agreeing to tour FDR's homestead in Hyde Park, NY, I agreed that the same trip could include a tour of West Point. I was surprised that I found it as interesting as they did! Our guide was wonderful, telling lots... More

The 75-minute tour ended after 60 minutes, ostensibly because the chapel wasn't available due to a recital. The tour guide, Ann, regaled us with her encyclopedic knowledge but seemed closed to questions even though we had more time than usual. The statues and scenery kept us entertained and interested, but I don't believe that the $15 price, plus fees, was... More

Jeff, Thank you for your response and feedback. West Point Tours is under the direction of the Commander of West Point and when there is an official function, certain venues are closed to the public. There was a recital that afternoon in the Chapel, therefore we were instructed not to bring groups there. The possibly of this happening is noted... More

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 all the background stories of our great generals

We were looking for somewhere to stopover and visit on our drive back from Niagara to JFK New York. West Point is ideally located on the east end of Route17E from Binghampton to Harriman - highly recommended. We stayed local the night before and took the first tour of the day (0930). Unfortunately, it was a cold, wet October morning... 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 to the tour operator and bring acceptable ID. Can't just walk around WP. Note the... More

The tour was great. Informative. We did the 2 hr tour as we had all day time kill. The visitor ctr was under construction so the make shift one didn't have any signage on which line to stand in, did we need a security pass, did the kids need one etc. So we stood in line to get a security... 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.

We took the one hour bus tour, which was narrated by a guide as we drove by most sites. We got out of the bus at the Chapel and again at the parade grounds and trophy point. The tour guide was good and the buildings and chapel were well worth seeing and hearing the history of. The tour is well... More

Extremely interesting. We learned a great deal about our military past, cadet life and about many of the Americans who graduated and helped shape our history. We toured the campus and were fortunate to have a sunny day to enjoy the scenery. The chapel is lovely and has one of the largest organs in the country.
