Finally we have clarity on how and why this unnecessary & futile war happened. Our Guide, Niem, from Kim Travel, provided a very emotional but clear historical explanation of the events before and during the war period - something we have never fully understood until now. The disappointment of the speed boat cancellation was negated by Niem's undivided attention to our interest in the topic. We highly recommend Niem as a guide for this historical venture

Excellent in every respect. Ethan the guide was great and everything went According to plan from the pickup to the boat ride, tunnels and lunch. Ethan passed on masses of knowledge and was a great guide. If you only do one trip out of Saigon, do this one with Kim Travel.
