Know More about this tour

Today the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction giving the visitor a unique experience and a feel of what underground life in the Vit Nam War must have been like. The tunnels have been widened for our benefit (otherwise we would not be able to enter them!) For those interested there's even the opportunity to fire off rounds from an AK47 or MK16 at the nearby rifle range.
We will pick you up between
08:00a.m. - 08:30a.m. at all places in District 1, H Ch Minh City (

1,5 hours - 2 hours through the pleasant countryside to C Chi District. Before entering the tunnels we will watch a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were constructed its history. We then spend the next hour exploring the maze of tunnels. On display are various booby traps and the quiet remains of an American tank. Along the path you'll see various craters left by 500-pound bombs dropped by B52 bombers. After your visit, try some local tapioca that sustained VC fighters for years.

    We did this tour on our recent visit to Ho Chi Minh. The Cu Chi Tunnels are a must visit when visiting HCM and this tour was pretty good. There are a couple of things that mark them down though: 1. On the way to the tunnels, the guide told us that there would be a comfort stop (the drive is less than 2 hours, so it wasn't completely necessary). We were told that the normal stop is at a petrol station which doesn't have very nice toilets, so instead we would stop somewhere else. Where we ended up stopping was at a lacquer factory that had a big sign saying that the workers are disabled due to Agent Orange. Whilst I am not against stopping there, this was not outlined as part of the tour, and it felt a little bit like an ambush stop. The bus dropped us near the toilets, and then promptly drove to the other end of the driveway, and we were led through the "factory" and then through a shop. It would have been about a 45 minute stop. 2. The tour says that lunch is included. However we never got lunch and we were never offered that as an option. No mention of it was made and unfortunately I didn't remember that it was included at the time. 3. There were rooms to watch documentaries about the Cu Chi Tunnels and other information boards that we could have read at the tunnels themselves, but it felt that we were rushed back to the bus after we had been given the tapioca and tea. Perhaps this was a result of making the 45 minute stop earlier. I'm not sure what other tour companies offer for the Cu Chi Tunnels, but I feel a little ripped off after this tour due to the above points.

    Dana took us on a fabulous tour of the Cu chi tunnels, she was very informative and interesting. Dana was very nice and loads of fun that our 2 young girls loved. A great day out.

    This tour is a must for people traveling to Ho Chi Minh city. Our tour guide Dana was absolutely incredible throughout the entire experience. She was very friendly, insightful and funny. Visiting this war relic of the past serves to inform on how the Vietnam war carried a heavy toll on the local people. 10/10 Would recommend to anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh.

    The tour was a very interesting experience. Khoi was very informative, engaging, very friendly and easy to get along with. Alongside showing and learning about the tunnel systems, Khoi really added to our experience by providing local knowledge in an interesting way about the site, and also his personal experiences and family life in Saigon. kiet was a good driver and got us to and from the site safely with a big smile:) We would highly recommend the tour:)

    An absolute must visit when going to Ho Chi Minh City. This tour was easy to arrange and book, being picked up from our hotel in a private car and taken to Cu Chi Tunnels. Special thanks to our tour guide, Bao, who explained the amazing history behind the tunnels the whole way through, answering our questions and being a perfect tour guide and also a great friend for the trip. Definitely recommend this tour to anybody, especially with Bao!

    Trip time from Saigon was 90 minutes. We stopped briefly to look at some art that was made by victims of agent orange used in the Vietnam War. The art was very beautiful. After a little more travelling we moved on to the tour our guide Khoi spoke very good English the tour started with a history lesson of the Vietnam War and once we arrived at the tunnel compound we were guided around by Khoi giving us a detailed explanation of the daily life of the soldiers who were fighting at that time. There was an option to try out guns from that time such as the M60 but I felt that these weapons and the land had heard enough. The highlight of the tour was going down the tunnels which are very tiny but you have the option to leave every 20 metres. Overall I really enjoyed my trip and would really recommend it.

    Our guide, Khoi, was extremely friendly and fluent in English. He took great care of us and made us feel very at ease. The tour was very eye-opening - would recommend that all tourists try it!
