Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • On arrival in Hanoi, drive by private transfer to your hotel. Meet veteran of the Vietnam War, Chuck Searcy, this afternoon. After returning to Vietnam in 1992, he is now Chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. Usually over about two hours, you have time to ask questions and hear about his experiences.

  • Today embark on a city tour with your driver and guide. Visit Ho Chi Minh's former home, the Temple of Literature (the first university in Hanoi) and perhaps the Fine Arts Museum which has a wonderful collection of art and sculpture. After lunch you will be accompanied by Vietnam veteran Tam to visit sites relevant to the Vietnam War.

  • Today you will be picked up by your private driver and guide and transferred to Thanh Hoa City, three hours south of the capital. Visit Ham Rong Bridge, which was fiercely defended by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War.

    Stay at Lam Kinh Hotel   
  • Return to Hanoi early this morning in time for your lunchtime flight to Hue. On arrival you will be met and transferred to your hotel in the city. This afternoon explore the Imperial Citadel with your guide and learn of its turbulent past and how it has withstood the test of time.

  • Today travel inland to the mountainous district of A Luoi. Along the journey visit Binh Dien and Bastogne Military Bases and stop off at the Ashau Valley and "Hamburger Hill".

    Stay at Do Thanh Hotel   
  • Continue into the DMZ, stopping at places of military significance including the former American military base of Khe Sanh, the Rock pile, Camp Carol, Dakrong suspension bridge, Tacon airfields, and Lang Vay special force camp.

    Stay at Saigon Dong Ha Hotel   
  • This morning visit the Mine Action Visitor Center before traveling back to Hue, via the DMZ and the Vinh Moc Tunnels.

  • This morning transfer via the picturesque Hai Van pass to Hoi An. En route visit sites of military interest including Camp Eagle, Lang Co beach, the grounds of former US Consulate and the Marble Mountains.

  • This full day tour takes you to the rural town of Quang Ngai, located in an area of Vietnam that saw some of the heaviest fighting. Near the town is a memorial to the people of My Lai village, over 500 of whom were massacred in what was one of the War's most gruesome events.

  • After your flight to Saigon, you have the opportunity to gain insight into the secret maze of tunnels at Cu Chi used by the Viet Cong.
