Join us for a Tour of the United States Military Academy At West Point

Hear the story of West Point and the United States Military Academy beginning in 1778 during the Revolutionary War, to the present role of the United States Military Academy as the premier training facility for leaders who mold the future of our country. Along the way, historical figures such as George Washington, Douglas MacArthur, Dwight Eisenhower, and even Benedict Arnold help bring the story of West Point and our nation to life. The bus tour makes stops at Trophy Point, Battle Monument, the Plain and the Cadet Chapel.

​This tour requires easy walking and visitors spend approximately 1 hour off the bus at the various stops, most of which are outdoors. We encourage guests to bring water and take measures to protect themselves from the elements.  While a rare instance, being an active duty army post, tour times and access to venues within West Point are subject to change without notice. 

All tours originate and end in the parking lot of the Fred V. Malek Visitors Center in Highland Falls, NY. GPS directions are included in your confirmation. 

There are no restroom stops on the tour and food is not permitted on the tour.

Please check the calendar for availability. If your selected date shows no tour times it means this tour is not being offered, the tour has sold out, not being held due to a West Point special event, or it’s a Saturday of a home Army football game

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. There are no in person ticket sales. Reservations MUST be made online. Same day online reservations are available however, a tour time will close once sold out or 1 hour before the start time to allow for the West Point security background checks. We recommend all guests plan to arrive 30-45 minutes prior to your tour start time as we do not hold buses and do not reassign reservations for a missed tour. This additional time can be used to view the displays in the Visitors Center and Museum. We do not have wait-lists. Reservations are non-refundable and non-exchangeable unless a tour is canceled due to adverse weather and/or a decision by West Point. Guests who miss their reserved time will need to make a reservation for a new tour.  **All sales are final.**
