Full description
Begin your day with a morning pickup and head out to your first stop. Pass by the Rockpile, Khe Sanh Combat Base, and villages before reaching Ta Con Airbase. Upon arriving, learn about the devastating battle that occurred here, where both Vietnamese and American troops suffered incredible losses.  At around 12:30 PM move onward for lunch in Dong Ha City for some local fare. Afterward, visit Hien Luong Bridge, which marks the 17th parallel that connected the former North and South Vietnam during the Vietnam War. This place remains a painful symbol of the nation’s division and the Vietnamese’ everlasting desire for peace, national independence, and reunification. The final stop of your day tour is the Vinh Moc Tunnels. Be shocked to see how an entire village could survive and live underground to keep shelter from intense bombing. The tunnels were not only for hiding from attacks but also served as a place for schooling, cooking, relaxing, and political discussions. Learn about what life was like for some of Vietnam’s most vulnerable residents during the war, before concluding your tour.

My original tour booked from Expedia was cancelled by their 3rd party with less than 24 hours notice. So, I booked this tour quickly with no research. For the money paid, it did not have entry fees and lunch included. We were picked up by Mr Tien Nguyen from our hotel in Hue. I did not know I had booked a private car; I thought we were being transferred to a tour bus? He was engaging and friendly. He shared his past experiences with tourists, knowledge and some family stories with us. He was a humble man! He took us to the sights we wanted to only see in the tour.
