Overview

Explore sites related to the Vietnam War's Battle of Long Tan on this 7-hour private tour from Ho Chi Minh City.

With a guide, you'll visit the Long Tan Cross, the Long Phuoc tunnel, and Nui Dat. Entrance fees and hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

8:00 AM

Please arrive 30 minutes before your selected start time for pickup. Your operator can coordinate exact time and location.

After departing Ho Chi Minh City, your tour starts with the drive to Vung Tau, stopping along the way to pick up your travel permit to see the sites of the Battle of Long Tan.

You'll visit Long Tan Cross, a memorial dedicated to Australian veterans of the Vietnam War; the 'horseshoe,' a Fire Support Base site; the Long Phuoc tunnel; and Nui Dat, a former 1st Australian Task Force base. During your tour, your guide will try to find a local Vietnamese veteran who may have fought in the battle, in order to give you a first-hand perspective, if possible.

You can stop for lunch (own expense) on the way or wait until you return to Ho Chi Minh City. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
The Battle of Long Tan
At 7:30AM. We will pick you up at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh city and head to Vung Tau. After more than 2-hour car ride. We will arrive Long Tan. Long Tan is deeply etched into ANZAC folklore. In the late afternoon of August 18, 1966, D Company, 6 RAR - despite being heavily outnumbered - fought off a large Viet Cong assault of regimental strength during a grueling three-hour battle. The first stop on this full-day tour is the former site of Australia's Nui Dat Task Force Base (Nui Dat SAS Hill). The occupation of Nui Dat required the removal of all inhabitants from within a 4 kilometer radius of the base, therefore the people of Long Tan and Long Phuoc villages were forcibly resettled. Little remains of this military camp today except the columns of the main gate. The former runway is now a street in the local village, and the old helipad is now a soccer field.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At:  
The Battle of Long Tan
Afterward, drive past the location of Horseshoe FSB (access is not permitted due to the continued presence of land mines) to the Discourtesy Rubber Plantation. Visit the Long Tan Cross Memorial, a focal point for remembrance, before continuing on to the Long Phuoc Tunnels. Like other tunnels systems found in Vietnam the Long Phuoc Tunnels included meeting areas, first aid stations, and fighting pits. Long Phuoc Tunnels is our last stop in a half-day tour to Long Tan – Nui Dat. After a short rest, you will return to Ho Chi Minh City. Tour ends at your hotel.

This was a very informative tour where we learnt quite a bit about both sides of the conflict. I am grateful for the opportunity to pay respect to the fallen soldiers. Lest we forget 🇦🇺

The experience was simply amazing. To actually set foot on ground where our soldiers fought so bravely was very humbling and emotional. See the area while it all still stands... Nui Dat is slowly being mined out and may not be there in 5-10 years.

Our tour guide Jackie was good, he had been in the war for the South and had a lot of stories to share from his perspective. Unfortunately there are no signs or even a plaque now at the memorial site which is a shame. A little more history of the importance of the Australian's at this site would have been better.
