5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

I booked this tour for ANZAC Day, and thought I would just have the standard tour. Instead of the 8am pickup, I was so fortunate that the local tour organisation, knew that it was ANZAC Day and picked me up at 2:45 am. I was able to attend the Dawn Service at the Long Tan cross. It was a very moving service with over 600 attending. On the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing, I had a memorable experience.

Private Guide was very knowledgeable and made the excursion to Long Tan and Nui Dat a very good experience. The guide was very respectful of the meaning of Long Tan to Australians .
The vehicle was well presented with an excellent driver.

Was quite worthwhile,the guide was helpful and the vehicle comfortable.Other than the memorial itself there is not much to see but I wanted to see where the Australian Forces were based.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2015

Rather disappointing. Sites stand decimated and what little is left is based on one's own imagination. Was not worth the length of time and money spent on this tour.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2016

This tour seems only suited for veterans. I didn't learn much about the war and didn't see half of the sites that were listed on the tour description. At the end of the tour, I wondered why I spent 6 hours driving time to see the few items that we saw. I learned more about the war at the war museum and wished I would have skipped this tour.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this April 2015

This tour was an absolute waste of time and money. Essentially we spent 4 plus hours in heavy traffic listening to repetitive stories about the organization of the various military districts during the war. We stopped in front of the old Bien Hoa airfield at least that was what we were told it was and told to take pictures. As we attempted to do so we were warned by the Vietnamese military guard to not take pictures. The description of this tour stated that we would be taken to a Pagoda where we would have a panorama view of the old base and be given binoculars to view inside. That did not happen! Not even anything close. We were driven to a couple of locations, not more than 200 yards from the gate and told we could take photos. The only thing to take a photo of was a concrete wall. If you are a US veteran, forget this tour and save your money!
