We’ve always been huge fans of Ken Burns’ and Lynn Novick’s documentaries. And given that the latest one – “The Vietnam War” – hits so close to home, we’re especially excited to see how this conflict is portrayed.
We’re also excited to be partnering with KNPB – our local PBS station in Reno, Nevada – to offer a special 10-day Vietnam tour for two which will take travelers through many of the key areas highlighted in the documentary, and allow people to hear first-hand accounts from survivors of the “American War” as they call it in Vietnam.
Over the years, we’ve created tours for a number of Vietnam War veterans and their families – tours that have helped bring closure and greater understanding of this generation-defining conflict. And we are proud to be able to donate this tour to help fundraise for KNPB and their amazing programing.
Of course, we’re always happy to customize this itinerary for anyone else interested in the history of this conflict and the beauty and culture of this amazing country. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would be interested in making a similar journey yourself.
So set your alarm for the premiere of the 10-part documentary series on “The Vietnam War” this Sunday, Sept. 17 on your local PBS station or streaming online via any number of PBS apps/services. Click here for how to watch.
