Know More about this tour

It included, hospitals, schools, meeting rooms, kitchens and sleeping quarters. Life was difficult for the inhabitants and to protect against outside intruders bobby traps were laid throughout the complex.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • This trip doesn't include hotel pick up, which we didn't spot when we were looking, not a problem for us but beware. Guide was very charming and knowledgeable and her English was superb, a lovely guide to have. Apart from the one tunnel that everyone has the opportunity to go through, we were able to go through tunnels connecting the kitchen and meeting room as well. As said before, although busy, the guide was able to navigate us round so we had chance to see everything without being overcrowded. Driver did an excellent job negotiating the HCM traffic.

  • This was a great trip! Our guide was very enthusiastic! he tried to talk me out of the shooting range experience but other than that I think he was great. Overall, good experience.

  • The guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. Despite a crowded day at the tunnel, she managed to circumvent the crowd and tell us stories about each important component of the tour without us waiting too long.

  • Very educational and insightful. Great tour and the live gun fire you can do is an added bonus

  • Great day. Jerry the guide was the man! Extensive knowledge and very friendly and helpful.

  • It was a great day and our guide was really knowledgeable. It was a lot of driving and be sure to bring some food with you, as the tour doesn't include any and I was starving by the end! A good chance to see more of Vietnams countryside.

  • Linda was great! Great tour.

  • This tour was easily arranged and very well organized from the pick up, to the transportation, to the actual tour. It was a nice small size so it felt personal. The guide was engaging and very sweet. Would definitely recommend!

  • I was solo for the weekend after a regional business trip and signed up for this small group tour of the chu chi tunnels. It was very well run, on time, our guide spoke good english, and there was only about 12-15 ppl, which made for a nice size. The tunnels and exhibits are well worth seeing and just about 1.5 hrs from Ho Chi Minh city make this a great half day excursion for anyone!
