On the way, we’ll stop to stretch our legs and pick up your local guide for the Long Tan – Nui Dat area. Your guide will give you an introduction to the Ba Ria area and history. Then, we’ll head to the Phuoc Long Tunnels, a 1.4km tunnel system where our guide will tell fascinating stories that illustrate the life of the Viet Cong during the wartime. He or she will also explain how the cashew nut grows. Vietnam is the largest producer and exporter of cashews in the world!
Step Back In Time In Nui Dat & Luscombe Airfield
Next, we’ll arrive in Nui Dat, or SAS Hill, the former base of the Australian Army. Our guide will illuminate the important history of this area, showing photos so that it is easy for you to remember or imagine this period in time. Then we’ll drive to Luscombe Airfield, which has been preserved in a small village. Our guide will tell you the stories associated with this significant site. Here, we’ll also have a chance to visit the kindergarten built by Australian Veterans.
Absorb The History Of The Battle Of Long Tan
We’ll continue on to the Long Tan Cross, the most emotional part of the tour. With flowers and incense, we’ll perform a ritual ceremony to show our respect for the people who passed away in this place. After this, we’ll view Horseshoe Hill from the main street because the area itself is protected due to bombs and landmines which still remain buried.
Take In The Sights In Vung Tau City
Leaving Nui Dat, we’ll head to the beach city of Vung Tau where we will enjoy a delicious lunch with a sea view. Then we’ll visit the must-see spots of Vung Tau, including a climb to the top of the lighthouse where we can view the whole city and the East Sea. Going back down, we’ll visit the last King Bao Dai’s White Palace.
The Adventure Isn’t Over Yet!
Before we head back to Ho Chi Minh City, we’ll have a chance to take a photo with the famous Statue of Jesus on top of the hill. We’ll return to HCMC around 5:00 pm and drop you off at your hotel or anywhere you would like to go within HCMC. Before farewell to our guide, please make sure you get some good recommendations from him/her on where to further explore the city.
See What Our Guests are Saying
I now refer my friends, family and colleagues, as well as book all of my tours, accommodation and flights with Maika because I feel very lucky to have finally found an organisation in Asia that gives me the confidence to do so.
The tour was very well organized, and the guide spoke very good English. We got to see and experience so many things: Besides visiting a pagoda and Buddha statue, we also went on a boat ride (with a stop to enjoy a coconut drink) and visited local businesses producing rice paper, conical hats and mats. We had fresh fruit and tea for a snack and Pho soup for lunch which was delicious! We had such a good day and would highly recommend this tour!
We went on this tour, two families of four, with children aged 9-12 years old. We were really happy with it and highly recommend. Lin was our guide and she was fantastic, would really do a trip with her again. It was nice to do this privately and easy to adjust with Lin if needed. Maika helped us book the accommodation in Can Tho which we really appreciated. Would highly recommend and for sure do again.
You did a great job looking after all of our family of 7. The kids enjoyed all the tours and especially the Mekong cruise …as did we……because the kids were so happy we got to enjoy some time to ourselves too. I would recommend Maika Tours if your thinking of visiting Vietnam!
