A squad of 36 tourists from the US and Australia will join a Trans-Vietnam adventure by way of 13 vintage jeeps from April 24 to May 3.

Vietnam-jeepA source from Hoi An City-based Rose travel service agency told the English-language daily Vietnam News that the 10-day tour will start from Hanoi and wind through the provinces of Hoa Binh, Nghe An, Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Hue and Hoi An city.

Tourists themselves will drive the 1960s-manufactured military jeeps left over from the American war's end in 1975.

"It's the largest tour that our company has organised since our debut in 2010. Tourists really want to experience the military jeeps on the roads in Vietnam ," said the agency's staff Vu Xuan Hao.

She said the agency decorated and repaired the old jeeps to provide a safe service for tourists.

Two mechanics will accompany the tour on the 1,500km adventure.
