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.
