The tour of the academy was good. Highlights were the huge main hall and the chapel. I was hoping for more history information, but the tour focused mostly on cadet life. I plan to go back to the history museum that is not included in the tour. I would have given this tour 5-Stars, but I went to West-Point, and... More

Don't miss the Academy. We were priviledged to witness the Plebe change over ceremony during our tour. The program is one to be respected and honorable.

Their ground was pretty and we felt their pride thorough out the campus. The visitor center was very informative. After or before the USNA visit, one can definitely enjoy the quaint downtown Annapolis.

Our tour guide was exceedingly knowledgeable and wanted to show and tell us everything (he played football at the Academy in the 1970s or so). We saw and learned so much that another tour group that started 30 minutes after us,... More

Worth the time to walk the Naval Academy Yard and see the Chapel, John Paul Jone crypt, Memorial Hall,and Stribling Walk. Take the time to visit, but have photo ID as you will need to get through security since this is considered a military area.

Touring The USNA provides an upfront look at the quality provided to the students who are privileged to attend The Academy. The landscape and the halls echo history and pride.

Awesome visit. Great tours. Very informative. Got behind the scenes what Navy men do. Was able to eat on site. Beautiful churches, buildings, and awesome view of water. So clean.

What can I say, if you are in the area this is a MUST see. The buildings, the history, the cadets. Proud of our Naval history.
