Our guide was amazing and gave us a lot of information not just about the cu chi tunnels but also about Vietnam in general which was so interesting. She was nice, funny and inspiring. The experience was great and absolutely worth the money!
We had Mary as our guide and she was amazing. So informative and friendly. Would recommend to everyone!
Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Ho Chi Minh City.
Very good Tour, our guide Queenie was EXCELLENT, she was with the local tour operators and very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Would highly recommend this tour.
This was awesome. Our guide, Long, was very friendly. He's also quite knowledgeable and provided a lot of historical context on Vietnam, Cu Chi, it's people, and the tunnels.
The tour started out with a trip to a local family's home where we were able to watch the making of rice paper, then afterwards, to try our hand at it. The matriarch also showed us how they raised livestock and extracted sap from rubber trees, which grow abundantly in Cu Chi.
We spent the rest of the morning going around the tunnels, learning of its history, architecture, and its importance during the Vietnam War. We got a chance to "drop" into a tunnel access, then later try to traverse one that's been enlarged for tourist access. Our group didn't get to finish the whole 100 m stretch, exiting at around 40 m because the tunnel is claustrophobia inducing, but it was still great fun. We learned about the various traps they used during the war as well. For gun enthusiasts, there is a firing range at the Cu Chi tunnels, though for non-gun enthusiasts, it can get a bit noisy.
At the end of the tour, our guides took us back to our hotels, which was very convenient, and even provided us with general tourist tips for Saigon. All in all, a great way to spend your morning. :)
One of our best days in Vietnam ... Mary our tour guide was fabulous, very friendly and informative . Would thoroughly recommend booking with this company
The tour of the Cu chi tunnels was fantastic, We had a lot of fun and would highly recommend the tour
A real insight into the versatility, courage and bravery of an invaded people. The amazing and desperate measures taken to defend their lives and land was incredible to see and experience.
Great experience. You get a sense of how committed the people were in fighting for what they believed in.
Marie Huong is an excellent tour guide. It was a great tour. Very comfortable, well planned and informative.
We loved this tour. Our tour guide, Queenie, was really great. We wouldn't have gotten as much out of this experience without her. She knew so much about the site and the history, so it was wonderful to have her there to guide us and answer our questions. I will definitely recommend this tour to others!
Very knowledgeable guide who was fluent in English and very friendly. At the time I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to go down into one of the bigger "rooms" located in the tunnels but after walking through the narrow tunnels I reckon that maybe it was for the best after all.
Also would've appreciated if there was some more light in the tunnels but that's just a minor thing.
Heong (Mary), our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour! She also gave us tips and suggestions for our remaining days in Ho Chi Minh.
Tour guide was very informative and her English was very good. Very friendly driver even though there is not much interaction with the driver.
We had heard mixed reviews for this tour, but it was well worth it. I visit countries to find out about their history and this was amazing to see and hear about how the Vietnamese survived the war. Climing through the tunnels was something else. As I'm 6ft I dropped down into the tunnel opening and then chickened out, however there was a bigger tunnel at the end of the tour which I went in and I'm glad I did.
As someone who as studied the Vietnam War over many years this was a fascinating insight into the Vietnamese take on things, although naturally heavily biased towards their view of the war, it was for me, a one off experience to be able to experience and see some of the aspects of the war I had read about in the past.
