    The trip was extremely knowledgeable and a great half day experience
    . Our guide was informative and he tried to answer as many questions as we put to him. The lunch that was supplied was very good and we weren’t rushed to finish it. It was another’s great experience from Viator and we will continue to use wherever we end up on holiday. Thank you.

    We have a great time on our tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels! The Speedboat option was such a great choice - we were picked up at our hotel, brought to the docking station, and set off for about an hour on the boat. Snacks (fruit and croissants) were offered on the boat, and our guide told us about the area we were boating through, as well as the history of the tunnels and the people who built them. When we arrived at the tunnels, our guide made sure the entry process was seamless, and confidently explained to us each station that we visited, being careful to avoid crowds and ensuring we had time to explore. At the Cu Chi Tunnels, you do have the option of using the shooting range for an additional fee - though even if you aren't using it, it is very loud and can be heard throughout your visit (be mindful for young children or those who are sensitive to this!). The tour concluded with lunch (plentiful! They also did a great job accommodating a vegetarian diet), and we were then brought back to our hotel. What a great time!

    Our family did the Luxury Speedboat tour and had a great time. The guide, Kate was amazing! She was so knowledgeable and friendly. We loved touring the tunnels and learning all about the area. Probably our favorite tour of all three weeks in VN. It was so easy and well-thought out. It was geared to the comfort of the passengers and I would recommend it to anyone. Well done, Kate, etc.

    A great trip led by our fantastic guide Kate, she was informative, funny and made the whole day a wonderful experience for myself and my family. We were worried the children aged 4 and and would get bored but we have a great time.

    This was such a unique experience. It was great to skip the traffic and have fun traveling via speedboat. The tour itself was really informative and interesting. Jesmine is a great tour guide, really sweet and very knowledgeable about the area. This is a must-do experience if you are visiting Ho Chi Minh City!

    No issues with the tour itself, but the tunnels are a bit of a mission to get to for how 'interesting' they are...

    Was a fantastic way to go to Cu Chi tunnels, the tour guide was great and the morning tea and lunch was really good too. The boat ride was really relaxing and nice and cool - a great way to escape the heat. Highly recommend!!

    Absolutely AMAZING, the speedboat is the ONLY way to go down the stunning Saigon river to get to the Cu Chi tunnels, its a faster way and a picturesque way to get to the there instead of wasting that time in a bus, our tour guide was clear, knowledgeable and a whole lot of fun- terrific personality would suggest this tour to ANYONE that has some time in Ho Chi Ming City - any war buffs its a MUST
