There are few times in a man's life when he has the opportunity to walk the places that profoundly shaped the rest of his life --- places with deep meaning for him --- like: Saigon, Cu Chi, Dong Tam, Phouc Vinh, Bien Hoa, An Loc, Long Bien, Da Nang, An Hoa, Quang Tri, An Khe, Pleiku, Route 9, Tay Ninh, Tan Bien, Song Be, China Beach, Hanoi, the Hai Van Pass, and many, many more. We are proud to partner with the 14th Transportation Battalion to bring “The Reliables” back to Nam!
The highly experienced, Vietnam-veteran battlefield guides of Military Historical Tours have walked them all. We have an outstanding working relationship with the Vietnam government that allows us access to areas previously restricted to other travelers. Our guides have been back to Vietnam dozens of times and are intimately familiar with the terrain, the battlefields, and the people. Vietnam is eager to welcome the returning American veterans. The Vietnamese people are gracious and sincerely happy to have us with them again. The scenery is great, the food is delicious and the hotels in which we stay are new, beautiful and very comfortable. Together we will visit the sites at which we fought and which are written in our collective history. Let’s go!
