    It was very well organized from the very comfortable pick-up to drop off in the limo car and we loved the delicious lunch and snacks too ! Special thanks to our guide Amy who went beyond to make us feel comfortable and kept us super engaged with all the war stories and very interesting information about the tunnels. She was very kind and personally went beyond to help us out in getting back my dad’s lost reading glasses, which was very very sweet of her!! High quality service at a very reasonable rate = super value!! Thank you!!

    I went to the Ben Duoc tours with our tour guide Sally and 4 other guests (5 out of a total of 10 people). At no point did it feel like there were other tour groups on our tail, but neither were we rushed. We also spent longer at the tunnels than our tour guide had accounted for which tells us we had a far more in depth time than expected which I was thankful for! It is worth the longer trip for quieter tunnels.

    Handsome Ben was such a great tour guide! I was blown away! I've done many tours on Viator and often don't leave reviews. When the rating is a 3 or 4 star experience, I often let the tour standalone. In this circumstance, Ben was so stellar and thorough that I felt the need to say something. Ben knows the tour from the beginning to the end. He's knowledgeable and kind and his English is very clear and understandable. He has firsthand experience from the war, knowing relatives who were affected. He's honest about the experience and gives you a great understanding of it. I highly recommend this for anyone! Ben is a STAR!!!!

    A great tour, well organized with a fantastic tour guide. Very informative, but also fun as you get to try to get into the tunnel and crawl through (only if you want). Highly recommend if you have a few days in Saigon

    A perfect half-day tour with a great guide (Viet, aka Don). The recent history of the Cu Chi area is fascinating and Don was able to answer any questions we had, sometimes even using humour to lighten such a dark topic. I'd definitely recommend this tour.

    Good tour to learn the history and life at Cu Chi tunnels. Lot of information and tidbits. The bus ride is bumpy at times.

  • 03-Jan-2020

    Gives deep insights into the horrors of war but more important the ingenuity of the local population to fight despite absolutely no resources other than courage, a strong will to fight to win and a desperate need to survive.
    You surely need a good tour guide for this, we were lucky to get a var veteran himself who gave us insights which probably would not have been exposed.

    Vu had excellent English.Vu was very informative and entertaining. I highly recommend Vu for future tours.

    Our tour guide was good. He was very informative even though his information was incorrect! Might have been a lost in translation but he had a lot of facts about America that were not correct.
