Depends on expectations and reason for going
Review of: Long Tan Battlefield full day private tour from Ho Chi Minh City
“Hard to rate this tour as we had highs and lows.
To start with the company ‘forgot’ about our booking and had to quickly arrange for a guide and driver so we didn’t start until 2 hours late. Mistakes happen so we let it go.
We had a chatty guide for the drive towards Long Tan and then Trung swapped places with him as the local guide and displayed his impressive knowledge of the area, the war and Australian participation in the war.
The area itself is far from what it would have been back during Australian service with the Nui Dat Helipad now a quarry and the runway now being used as a local road. Trung had photos from the campaign for then and now comparisons. Huge rubber plantations are now growing in the area and were interesting to see.
For us, the main purpose of the tour was to pay our respects at the Long Tan Memorial and we were able to do so and it made the whole tour absolutely worthwhile.
That’s when the adventure began as a sudden downpour left our vehicle bogged in mud in the neighbouring banana plantation so after trying to help get the car out and eventually being rescued by a local farmer we, and our guide were coated in mud and another 2 hours behind schedule.
This is probably why we missed the tunnel area that we had also been looking forward to seeing but there was no explanation and we were driven to our traditional lunch.
Lunch was a nice assortment of Vietnamese dishes and we had to pay for our own drinks before heading back to Ho Chi Minh City, arriving only 30mins later than we would have had the tour started on schedule which means we missed out on some of our tour time.
Not a tour for everyone but if you want to pay your respects and get a feel for what our Diggers went through then you can’t go wrong.”

Review of: Long Tan Battlefield full day private tour from Ho Chi Minh City
My father and I took the private tour from Ho Chi Minh City. We had a prompt pickup from our door step at 8.30 a.m. Our tour guide Field was friendly and was happy to have a chat with us along the way. We then arrived in Ba Ria and changed guides. Quan was our new guide and he was great from the start. Funny, great English and kept us informed about the itinerary. We then visited all the attractions including Nui Dat and Long Phuoc tunnels. The tunnels were incredible and we got to scale about 60 metres worth, that was plenty!
Long Tan memorial was the last stop and it was quite surreal. Quan gave us flowers to lay at the site which was a really nice touch. His knowledge of the battle And Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War was very impressive. If you’re Australian or New Zealander or just interested in the Vietnam War history, then this is the tour you want to do. Unforgettable.

Private Long Tan, Nui Dat battlefield tour
Thank you to Vince and Huong for taking us on a fantastic tour of the Long Tan battlefield. Walking through battlefield tunnels, standing on the helipad and runway used by Australian soldiers. It was great to see photos from the war from exactly where we were standing. It made it much easier to visualise just where we were standing. Vince and Huong had expansive knowledge about the area and a great sense on humour at the same time. Brilliant English too. Lunch was fantastic at a beautiful local restaurant with delicious Vietnamese cuisine. I would highly recommend this tour and tour company to anyone.

Well-organised tours, excellent value.

We took two tours with Roadstour Vietnam, one to Cu Chi and the Cao Dai temple at Tay Ninh, the other to Vung Tau and the Long Tan battlefield. Both tours went without any problems, and our guide Mr Loc was very helpful and also very entertaining during these long road trips. The vehicle provided was very comfortable for our group of four adults, and lunches were of a high standard, in particular at the waterfront restaurant at Vung Tau. The cost of the tours was lower than some comparable tours that we considered, so was excellent value for money. I would not hesitate in booking with Roadstour Vientnam again, should we return to Vietnam.

Our tour guide was fantastic. She was a sweet young lady who was very knowledgeable. I could not fault her as a tour guide at all. We were really looking forward to seeing inside the tunnels. Unfortunately they were gate locked. This is no fault of the guide. It is still very eye opening as to where the Australians were based, in Nui Dat, and the vast area in which they occupied.

I am a serving member of the Royal Australian Navy and have many friends who are Vietnam War veterans so I made sure I took this tour to ho our them. Our local guide was brilliant and very knowledgable and did not put a Vietnamese spin propaganda on this battle. My mate and I were given poppies to place at the cross, I played the Last Post and Revellie on my phone. I cried. Great tour for Aussies, not sure anyone else would go.
