This tour was amazing!
It was a really great day. My guide Thanh was punctual, polite and very knowledgeable. The vehicle was modern and comfortable. The tunnels are a stark reminder of the pain of war - contrasted now with the bright, dynamic future of the country. The temple is simply gorgeous and I was fortunate enough to witness a ceremony there. We went for lunch in a typical restaurant in a small village, which was an authentic experience. All in all, a highly enjoyable and educational day. Thank you:-)
Tour was great. We thought the tunnels were amazing. The only reason I didnt give it give stars is that there is a lot of car time involved getting from one place to another. Otherwise great trip and great guide.
Was met at our hotel, but departure was delayed as the tour guide was not clearly identified so I was unsure as to which company he was from, eventually we headed off at around 8-20. Journey to the Cao Dai temple was a lot longer than envisaged. No complimentary bottled water provided so when we stopped off for a toilet break, the small group on the minibus bought refreshments. We arrived 15 minutes before the noon day mass at the temple, but once this finished we were back on the minbus and heading off for lunch. I would have liked to have spent more time looking round the temple rather than spend and hour for lunch as the journey to the temple was long and tiring. All this way for 40 minutes !
Following lunch it was onto the Cu Chi tunnels, around 2 hours on the minibus with no complemtary refreshments yet again....the tour round the Cu Chi tunnels by our guide was very interesting and informative. Got back to our hotel in downtown Saigon at 6-45pm, tired, sweaty but all in all had a great day, even with the minor grumbles. Our guide was friendly and chatty and the driver made sure we got to our destination safely.
Tour guide seem knowledgeable and was very nice but his English was impossible to understand so we got no information that we could understand about what we were seeing.
This was a very nice trip. Linda our guide did a wonderful job of answering our questions. The tunnels were sobering providing some insight into the sad experiences of the Vietnamese during the war. The highlight for me was the meal with a local family.
Wonderful tour, a must for any trip to Ho Chi Minh. Do not worry about going in the tunnel, it is only about five minutes of the whole day tour, and if you do not go in, as I did not, you won't miss anything, as the real tour is seeing and experiencing what is above ground.
Great tour, very informative guide. Very enjoyable lunch at local house. Only downside was the bus and very bumpy roads which made some of the trip uncomfortable.
This tour was excellent. Luke was our guide and did a wonderful job (highly Recommend). If you get a chance ask for Luke Dinh, he is a great tour guide with a wealth of information and we feel made our day a really great one. It was a great fun day 5 stars all the way.
Great tour, covering lots of culture and history.
Although you visit the "tourist" tunnel location, still a good example to the tunnels. The temple was phenomenal.
Temple is interesting enough. Cu Chi tunnels were more interesting. Lot to learn on how brave ad imaginative Vietnamese fighters were, defending their country
Really fascinating tour. The Cu Chi Tunnels were really remarkable, and showed the true horror of the American War. The temple was really beautiful. Well worth a visit. Altogether, a splendid day out.

The whole day was a wonderful experience. We could not have had the kind of day we had without a great driver and guide. Our transport was comfortable and relaxing. Our guide was there to explain everything we needed to know and very friendly. I was able to go down into the tunnels and went through on my hands and knees the full 100 meters that was designated for us. A highlight for me! We enjoyed our lunch and going to the Cao Dai Temple. Quite colorful and artistic in design. We have always trusted VIATOR with our tours and have to applaud them for a job well done!!! We would recommend this tour to all who visit Vietnam...
