Tours at the United States Military Academy (West Point) and at the United States Naval Academy (Annapolis)?

I want to visit both of these fine service academies, and I've looked at their touring pages, but it confuses me a little bit. Am I supposed to make some sort of a reservation by calling them before I go, or do I simply have to walk into their open visitor's centers and make a reservation for a tour for that day? I would really appreciate any answers that may help me. Thank you!

P.S. - There are 4 people touring total, including me

    You can do either. Their tours are fairly structured, so you really need to do their tour. I would say call ahead, if you're going to travel all the way there you want to make double sure that you can have a chance to tour.

    Check out the Coast Guard Academy too, it's a beautiful campus in New London, Connecticut. It's not too far from West Point

    that's a tricky college to get into. you're able to have good SAT scores, and a minimum of the ideal 20% of your class. you decide on letters of advice from particular instructors, coaches, and your congressman. There are caps on how many seats could be held via scholars from an identical district. that's difficult to declare appropriate to the middle difficulty. talk to a recruiter, they're going to be waiting to offer you a greater thought of how lots it could carry you returned. don't be worried approximately it, that's not like the action pictures they pays so which you will circulate to med college, yet you will could be a standout pupil and nail the MCATs. in case you are not getting into the element, think of roughly doing the reserves and ROTC. you might have extra doors open with much less regulations, yet you is in simple terms no longer getting an identical pay verify together as you're at school.
