    What to Expect
    After morning pickup at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, ride to Vung Tau in your private air-conditioned vehicle. 

    See rice fields and more during the 68-mile (110-km) drive to Long Tan. Stop off at Ba Ria Vung Tau to pick up the needed permits for your visit to famous battle sites and memorials in the area.

    Learn from your private guide about the war as you visit the Long Tan Cross, which commemorates the soldiers from the 1st Australian Task Force (1 ATF) who died in the battle, and places such as Long Phuoc tunnels, Horseshoe FSB, and Nui Dat (SAS hill). Your guide tries to locate Vietnamese veterans of the battle of Long Tan who can meet with you.

    The Battle of Long Tan on August 18, 1966 was one of the most well-known Australian engagements of the Vietnam War. Australia commemorates the Battle of Long Tan and the Australians who served during the Vietnam War annually on August 18. 

    Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.
