2 reviews for Saigon’s 3-Day Loop – From Long Tan Battlefield to Cu Chi Tunnels

  1. Kiarna M

    Do the tour when in Vung Tau, you won’t be disappointed. It is very informative and relaxed. Unfortunately the sites of interest are basically bush now, but you get the idea. The staff are usually Australian men with a Vietnamese lady to help assist, they both do a wonderful job – it is a very relaxed tour.

  2. Pam Wind

    Every Australian should experience a walk through the rubber and banana plantations of Long Tan to pay respect to our own soldiers who gave their lives in the hours of battle in Long Tan. There are tours but you can also speak to Bill Lamb at The Night Bar in Vung Tau. He was a Tunnel Rat back in 1970’s.
