Merry Christmas

This is a special time of the year for many reasons.  The foremost is the Christmas season and approaching New Year.  Here at Headquarters for Vietnam Battlefield Tours it is time to work Visa Applications, verify passport numbers and make international flight arrangements.  We also finalize itineraries to accommodate special requests and submit this information to our counterparts in Vietnam for approval and confirmation.

Every location we visit is pre-approved and we have done the research to make each return a special event for you and your family.  We know that the chances are you will do this only once, so our goal is to get it right.  When we hit the road we are carrying tactical maps, GPS’s, after action and command chronologies to support each and every tour.

"Gene and Bob, are you sure you guys know the way back?"
"Oh Sure! We can just lay down here and float back to the road!"
(One of us always knows the true direction!!)

We also look ahead at this time of year for the next year’s tour schedule.  In most cases, we are more than a year out planning around the Vietnam calendar and events.  Our marketing schedule takes most of the summer attending unit reunions and National Service Organization Conventions.  This past year we had a presence at VVA, MOPH, DAV, VFW, VHPA, Melbourne, Florida, Kokomo, Indiana, 1st and 3rd Marine Division Associations as well as many smaller unit and company sized reunions.  These efforts provide us with the opportunity to spread the word.  Wherever we go you’re helpful and willing to help us with our commitment to get veterans back.

Bob, Bill, Gene, Dave, Big Dave and I are prepared and ready to meet any challenge as we travel with you and we Thank You for your support and participation.

We have made several changes to our touring schedule that include adding February tour dates that are good for II, III, IV Corps.  We have also eliminated June as a regular tour month and will reserve June for custom or special tours.  These changes allow us to take advantage of the best fares for seasonal international flights.  We also increased our tour cost to $3,395 to accommodate rising fuel costs in the air and on the ground.  We want to maintain an all-inclusive pricing schedule that has no hidden costs or unexpected charges.  Our goal is to provide the very best service for an all-inclusive 15-day tour with a specific itinerary that meets the needs of all participants.  We offer discounts for large groups and returning clients so don’t hesitate to call for pricing.

If you have traveled with us come on back!  There are many unique, historical and cultural sites beyond those you know.  Expand your knowledge and experiences in beautiful Vietnam.
