Loved it, really well organised, guide was very informative and clearly had a passion for what she was talking about. Loved the music during the transportation. Think that was not only entertaining but also gave insight into the impact of the Vietnam War on popular culture in both the US and Vietnam. The visit to Khe Sanh was breathtaking having read so much about the role of the base in the war and again, hearing it mentioned in the music that was coming out the 1960s America. The Vinh Moc Tunnels were also incredible!

Great experience to learn even more about Vietnam's war history. All the places we visited during the tour were impressive. Hoa, our guide, knew everything about it, with a personal twist. Very interesting. The tour is well organized and includes a delicious lunch. Definitely do it if you are in Hue. Already a good memory!

It was a fabulous trip, so interesting. Hoa was a great guide - although there was lots of travel time, she talked so engagingly about the history of Vietnam between stops so it never felt long. Lunch was in a lovely, peaceful passion fruit cooperative, authentic and real. So glad we did this tour and that Hoa was our guide.
