The One Hour Tour
Informative and fun, there is no better way to experience the sweep of America’s history than with a tour of West Point. View breathtaking scenery from West Point which overlooks the Hudson River as it winds through the Hudson Highlands.
Historic figures such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Douglas MacArthur, Dwight Eisenhower and even Benedict Arnold all have a role in the story of West Point and our nation.
The 1 hour tour makes stops at the Main Cadet Chapel, Trophy Point, Battle Monument and the Plain. You are off the bus walking approximately 30 minutes.
The Two Hour Tour
We offer two different 2 hour tours. Both will cover all the stops on the one hour tour along with the additional points of interest. Our 2 hour tours explore in greater detail the history of West Point. On both tours you spend about 1 hour and 20 minutes off the bus at the various stops on this tour
