We have organised a couple of tours related to the Tunnel Rats and Sappers War books and this November, in conjunction with Wendy Wu Tours,   I will be hosting a group at Nui Dat, Long Tan and, of course, the Cu Chi Tunnels.

That tour is already sold out but I am planning another exclusive (and a lot more expensive) tour through a company called By Prior Arrangement, for February next year.

There will be 10 or 12 of us, max, and, as well as visiting some fantastic places – including the tunnels, naturally – and seeing world class sights like Ha Long Bay and we’ll be meeting Vietnamese families and talking to them about their lives.

But basically we’ll be following in the footsteps of Graham Greene, as mapped out very accurately in both the novel The Quiet American and the brilliant 2001 Australian-made movie starring Michael Caine.  We’ll also  sail through the fabulous of Ha Long Bay locations of the spectacular movie Indochine.

This is one for those who what to dig a little deeper than the obvious tourists and don’t mind paying extra for six-star accommodation and transport.
