We wanted to see West Point, its campus, and its student life - so we took the 2 hour tour. What we got what almost an hour in the cemetery. The stories we heard there were amusing enough, but really, what is the point of visiting West Point to stand in a graveyard for nearly 1/2 the tour?
When we finally got to the main campus, we weren't allowed to come anywhere close to the student buildings. One gets to see the beautiful Trophy Point (a beautiful view of the Hudson) and see the parade ground, but the buildings are far away, and so, for the most part are the cadets.
Our tour guide was capable and energetic, but there isn't much information about what West Point is actually like to attend. She had to resort to citing an article from a local newspaper about certain aspects of the school. Really? This tour company has the sole tour license to show West Point and the best it can do is get information from a newspaper?
Take the tour for the scenery, but don't expect much - either in information or in what you can see - of campus life.
