Wow, what an amazing day! We can not thank our guide Huong, and our local guide (that we picked up in Ba Rai) enough! Huong filled us in on the incredibly interesting history of Vietnam, and parts of the local way of life. We then had our local guide take us through Nui Dat, Long Tan and the surrounding Provence’s. It was an incredibly moving experience, and the attention to detail and the respect for the people of all nations that have passed through was deeply appreciated. We will not forget this experience and highly recommend this tour! Thank you for such a moving day.

We had a family member serve here and killed at Long Tan. We have been wanting to visit this area for years. The day here was the highlight of our Vietnam tour. Our guides were well researched, informative, considerate and very respectful, even organising flowers for us at the Long Tan memorial. We were overwhelmed with the attention given to help us experience this visit. Photos were provided of what each place we stopped looked like in 1966, and records provided for us about our relative who served. Thank you for a great day, one to remember for a long time.

Myself and 4 friends took a private tour to Long Tan and Vung Tau, being Australian, this place holds a lot of history for us. The tour was fantastic, as were the two tour guides that took us around. We saw a place that I never thought I would and it was so emotional being there. The tour guides were so knowledgeable and friendly. We saw virtually the whole of the former Nui Dat base as well as the the Long Tan memorial. The tour guide at the base even had some photos of the old base and explained what and where everything was. After the tour of the base and memorial we were off to Vung Tau for lunch at a nice restaurant next to the water. The tour guides picked us up from our accommodation in a nice comfortable air conditioned van and dropped us back off there at the end of the day. This was probably the best tour that I have ever been on and I would definitely recommend everyone visit. It was worth the bit extra to have a private tour.
