Interesting and moving experience
Oct 2019
We traveled with my Father-in-law who is a veteran and wanted to see where he had been based. Our guide Hung was informative, considerate, supportive and funny, he was a real joy to the day. We visited Long Tan, Nui Dat and had an excellent lunch in Vung Tau. A highly recommended experience.
