  • Excellent tour and insight into an awful war for both sides.

  • We joined a half-day group tour. The Tunnels are impressive! The tour had good english speaking guide and he told us some interesting facts. Very tiny tunnels that show how difficult it would have been during war time. It's possible to explore the tunnels it's a little claustrophobic inside.

  • Really great tour with fantastic guide who gave a lot of information and answered every question. Pick up from the hotel was very useful. Highly recommend the small group tour. Well worth the money.

  • Excellent day tour to the tunnels. Picked up from the hotel, water provided, drove to the tunnels site almost 2 hours away in a comfortable shuttle. Guide was excellent, providing plenty of insights on the tunnels and the war and Viet Cong. You end up spending about 2 hours at the tunnel area, extremely eye-opening experience. Optional activities include a shooting range where you can shoot from the likes of the AK-47 or M3. Highly recommended.

  • good experience on the Cu chi Tunnels.... tour guide is experience and well knowledge...

  • Awesome experience! thanks to our guide Mike... very informative and we enjoyed our visit in Cu Chi Tunnels plus we fired riffles including AK47... it includes a side-trip in Agent Orange Workshop.

  • Tin was a great laugh, full of good information and stories. The bus was air conditioned and was okay. We stopped at an Agent Orange place that sold enamelware, cheaper elsewhere, but to a good cause. The tunnels and the whole experience was better than expected. Not a kitsch as I thought it may be. Tin definitely added to our knowledge and the experience. Other groups did not seem to be getting the same sort of experience. I would recommend this tour for a good half day experience.

  • Enjoyed the tour but expected to go into bigger tunnels where you would get a sense of experience how they coped with life during the War. Our guides English was not good and he talked much to fast to understand what we would experience he also carried out his information before All the group was assembled. The transport was an old bus a real Bone Shaker.

  • Fantastic tour! Well worth the experience.
    Our tour guide Hi was very knowledgeable and informative. Was great to meet other travellers along the way as well. Only advice would be to pack some snacks as lunch is not included.

  • Nearly a full day trip with no provision or place for lunch. So unless you come prepared, you starve till 4 pm. Side trips not necessary and time at CuChi tunnel rushed.
