Overview

Have you ever experienced the tunnel systems that were made by the Cu Chi guerrillas these were made without machinery, GPS, architects or engineers? The network of tunnels stretched over 200 km from Viet Nam to Cambodia border which included meeting rooms, kitchens, ventilation systems and served as the base where Vietnamese soldiers attacked Saigon.

    Perfect length tour. Our guide Fully was a great guide who made the tour interesting and fun. We had always heard a lot about the Vietnam war and the tunnels did not disappoint in showing us just how much of a capable tunnel system was made by very creative-thinking people. My husband enjoyed using the AK47, there were other options for a small price at the moment 60000 Dong for 10 bullets. Lots of other points of interest such as how weapons and traps were made using metal from items left discarded by the American army. Fully (our guide) also supplied much relatable information along with information on Vietnam itself along the way. Highly recommend this tour.

    My husband and I had a half day on the Cu Chi tunnels with Law as our tour guide - he has an outstanding English, explaining every interesting detail about the war, the tunnels and everything! He has a big heart with the most charming and incredible personality and very enthusiastic!! He picked us up from the hotel at 1PM with another driver and gave us bottled water. It was really interesting to learn from him about how they fought in the war, living underground and helped each other to survive. We even had a fire gun experience. He just made our tour! The tour ended around 7PM at our hotel. Very much recommended!!+++

    Learning the history and the details of the hard and painstaking lifestyle the VC had to endure, while maintaining their underground tunnel network was very interesting. Typhoonhoney was my guide, and he was very knowledgeable and fun to have as my brother for the day! Highly recommend firing a historical firearm from the time period at the shooting range also. The AK47 being my pick! J

    We had a great trip to the Cu Chí tunnels with Typhoon Honey. It was fun from start to end, and next to that, the tunnels and the way people lived in it are amazing. It's a must-see if you're staying in Ho Chi Minh. Moreover, it's your change to shoot with a big gun.
