One of the best tours to take when visiting Ho Chi Minh City. Showcases the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the Vietnamese. Our guide, Queenie, was quite knowledgeable. Located about 2 hours out of the city proper, tunnels are in the middle of a tropical rainforest. Slather on the mosquito repellent and wear comfortable clothes and shoes to be able to enjoy the interactive exhibits.
Very interesting day out, discovered many things about the innovative and resourceful VC, the way they eluded capture and eventually won that war. The various ingenious terrifying traps they built for killing and more importantly to them, maiming the Americans. Plenty of original contraptions available to view. The tunnels, even though widened for tourists, were still quite claustrophobic, though they are only a small part of the tour. You also have the option to use the firing range and let off some rounds from various guns, including M16s and AK47s. Our guide stressed there was no animosity towards the USA now, but he did seem quite proud and enthusiastic about the killing and injuring of Americans.
All in all a great educational and enjoyable day out in the jungle. Recommended.
Highly enjoyable tour from the beginning to the end. Our tourguide, Queenie was fabulous. She was very knowledgeable and interesting, and always willing to go the extra mile. The hour and half long journey to the tunnels were filled with lots of interesting facts and history. The tunnels itself blew me away, but what really made the trip special was the guide who brought the history and stories to life. Highly recommended.
Highly informative tour. A small group of only 12 gave us all time to ask questions if we wished. Our guide, Tam, was excellent. He had great local and historical knowledge and was extremely helpful on the tour and with giving us recommendations for other activities, places to go to, eat, shop etc for the rest of our stay in Ho Chi Minh City.
Great trip to get outside the city for a morning. We stopped at a local farm and got to spend about thirty minutes seeing how daily life on the farm is. Our tour guide Loung provided facts and kept us engaged the entire trip. The entire tunnels area has been setup for tourists and does a good job of showing the history and perspective of the Cu Chi people in the Vietnamese War. Bring 300,000vd if you want to shoot some of the old weapons at the range on the end of the tour! Great experience, would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Saigon
this was a very informative tour. Our guide Mary had a great sense of humour spoke good English and was very informative . The bus was comfortable .
I had Tham as our tour guide. She was awesome and so knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the tour and information. Really well done. I will bring my Mom next year when she comes to visit me in S.E. Asia.
We had great fun!
The tour guide, Quang, spoke very good English and provide a lot of information and history not only of the tunnel, but the city also. We highly recommend it!
Our guide was really nice and knowledgeable. She explained many things about the tunnels, made the tour quite interactive, and I feel like I saw and learnt much more in this tour than I would have seen in a museum or on websites about Vietnam war.
This tour was amazing! Really gave you insight on how the viet cong lived during the war times! The 30 second optional experience in the tunnel was a real eye opener! We also got to visit a family who lived near by and saw how the rice paper wrappers were made!
This tour was amazing! We had a small group of only 4 people and our guide Ms Queenie was absolutely great - she is so friendly but most of all so knowledgeable there was nothing she couldn't answer and she taught us so much about the Vietnamese culture and history I would highly recommend this trip
Excellent tour! Quenie was fantastic! Knowledgeable on all aspects of Vietnamese culture and very personable. The detour to make some rice paper is a nice addition too. The tour of the tunnels is great. It's popular so there are lots of other groups and big crowds but it's worth doing. Take the chance to get into the hole see the profile picture for this tour for what I mean when it comes as there's only one chance to do it! There's a chance to fire a range of weapons in an outdoor range too which is cool costs extra and the whole tour is timed about right. Good value for the price - book it!
This tour turned out to be one of the most awesome experiences of our two weeks stay in Vietnam, also due to our great tour guide Ms. Linda. From the beginning, she created a very comfortable and friendly atmosphere, and stayed in constant dialogue with the group to make sure that the half day trip is spent in a way that is the most enjoyable for every participant.
This led also to a stop at a local house at which Ms. Linda and the residents demonstrated rice paper and rubber production. As this visit was originally not mentioned in the tour, it was a very welcome addition to the booked package.
The time at the tunnels was well spent, with really good explanations by Ms. Linda, and enough time to discover the underground world of the tunnels.
Just the right amount of time to get out and experience a little of Vietnam history from a Vietnam perspective. Lynda was a fantastic guide and ensured the tour was a great experience for all. Coach was very comfortable. The visit to a local rice paper producer was very interesting also. The return to our hotel after the tour was very welcome as the heat of the day can be a little draining. Would highly recommend this half day experience.
Good trip. Even we had difficulties with blocked streets due to the rehearsal parade of the 40th anniversary, the trip operator guided all tourists to a hotel to arrange an ad hoc pick up. The trip guide explained the tunnels very clearly.
A highly recommended tour in Ho Chi Minh and definitely something that is a must if you are visiting the area. The tour was really well organised, we were collected on time from the meeting point and the guide was really informative.
Loved this tour. Small group of 3. Guide was awesome.
Being in the small group meant we got to see everything without rushing.
English speaking tour guide, funny and very informative. Lovely nature, the tour was so real, it was shocking to see what went on. This tour is a must to understand a small but important part of history
My husband really liked the tour. I also would like to say thanks to our guide who got us a doctor to take a look at my foot after an ankle sprain. No broken bones just a sprain.
Tour was amazing and my guide was so nice and friendly and had so much interesting information and she made some good jokes too
Really interesting, definitely a trip worth doing...Our guide Linda was great!
