  • Very interesting and informative tour

  • The tour of the tunnel itself is good and well coordinated even the snacks towards the end of the tour was okay. We had this side trip in a factory where the workers were physically challenged. Their products are amazing and very expensive but I was a little concerned about the working condition of those people assuming the real factory is very much the same as the one they show the tourists. Our guide,Akira, took care of us really good.

  • Great tour. Incredibly interesting from a historical perspective. Well worth it!

  • Yes, definitely worth going on this trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. On the way we stopped at a lacquer wear factory for the disabled. Was good to see how it is made but quite expensive. You really get an understanding of how the tunnels worked and how they were made and how ingenious the Viet Cong were. Had plenty of time to ask questions and were not rushed. Got to crawl through the tunnel and also have a go a shooting a pistol. If you haven't done it before, it is an experience!

  • We enjoy this Cu Chi Tunnel tour a lot. Long was a great tour leader. We got a total different view of what happen in the war. If anyone got the opportunity to go to the war museum after the tour please go. I can recommend the tour to everyone. The only thing that was a bit difficult is that we must phone 24 hours in advance to arrange the pickup point. We got only a data sim and some use wifi only. our previous tour leader arrange for us.

  • The tour was run by one of the best and trusted local operators in Ho Chi Minh City. The pick up was right on time and the vehicle used to carry us to Cu Chi area was pleasant, clean, and properly air conditioned. Our guide was very well versed in the history of Vietnam and speaking English fluently

  • Well provided with modes of transportation. Our guide Huy was really funny and informative and equipped with lots of trivial information. Met lots of cool and fun people from different parts of the world really pushed for time as traffic in the afternoon at HCMC was horrendous but overall amazing experience

  • The Cu Chi tunnels is really interesting. You can see and experience crawling inside the tunnel. Furthermore, the Cu Chi Tunnels is already set up with adequate display, so you can understand the story behind the tunnels better. Going here alone without tour guide is difficult in my opinion, as there is not much explanation.

    The tour guide knows well about the tunnels. Tour guide's English accent is not that clear, so you need to pay close attention when he is explaining. Unfortunately our group's tour guide was not really engaging not too enthusiastic. The tour guide is not bad, but not excellent either.

    Overall, I recommend this trip. If you're lucky, you may get good tour guide, and everything will be perfect. If you are not lucky, this trip will not fail badly because the Cu Chi Tunnels itself is interesting especially if you like history.

  • A real experience to understand a history of vietnam war.
    Our tour guide is a funny guy!
    Enjoyable

  • Felt a little bit rushed.
