Traveler Reviews

    After an hour plus trip up the river, we were excited to venture into the Cu Chi Tunnels and immerse ourselves in this unique experience. While the exhibits were interesting, the tunnels were our main objective. Sadly, a prince from Dubai was visiting on the same day with 25 busloads of his closest friends, and this influx of people made it too crowded and we were denied entrance to the tunnels. Our guide was furious and lobbied on our behalf to no avail. This was not Viators fault, nor the fault of our guide. The rest of the day was fine, a lovely lunch and a very informative guide who spoke good English helped offset our disappointment.
