The Perfect Start
Join us aboard our comfortable bus for a guided overview from the start of West Point in 1778 as a military post during the Revolutionary War to the modern times of the United States Military Academy. View breathtaking scenery from West Point which overlooks the Hudson River as it winds through the Hudson Highland. 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 15 Min Tour makes stops at the Cadet Chapel, Trophy Point, Battle Monument and the Plain. You are off the bus approximately 50 minutes with minimal walking. This tour is offered year round.
