Great half day tour with a small group. The pick up location is central to most hotels but make sure to look for the tour guide with the red tshirt on! He is easy to find but had no sign up.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and has his Father's personal experiences and stores to share.
I love adventure so I would have preferred to go longer in the tunnels we went 80m. Most of the group were happy to do 60-80m but a couple of us would like to go further! Not sure if this is possible?
Overall, fantastic half day tour with a great tour guide. Air conditioned minivan with wifi on board. Highly recommend this tour!
I really enjoyed my trip to the Cu Chi tunnels. Our tour guide Thanh was not only informative about the history of the tunnels but also gave testimony of the war when his father was called to serve and therefor it made the trip feel more personal. Can and #39;t wait for another viator tour. Very fun. Thnx!
The tour was affordable and no-frills, yet delivered on quality. We were led by Trinh, an affable and enthusiastic chap who managed our group well and spoke knowledgeably about Vietnam's war history. He also gave good recommendations on where to eat and shop as well as tips on how to drive a hard bargain with the locals it worked!. We enjoyed the half-day tour very much, and plan to sign up for more tours on our next trip.
Our tour was affordable and no-frills, yet delivered on quality. Pick-up from the Central Post Office was a breeze and the bus ride highly comfortable. Trinh our guide was an affable and knowledgeable chap, dispensing all manner of info not just about Vietnam and #39;s war history but also where to eat and shop, and how to drive a hard bargain at the local markets (it worked!).
Fantastic place to visit. My wife and I loved it. So much history and things to see. Our guide was very good and helpful in the information she supplied. I would suggest that everyone that visits Ho Chi Minh should visit this location.
a great half day tour from ho chi minh city , are guide was uavn who was a great guide , very funny and easy to talk to , the tunnels themselves are very interesting, the guide first shows you a short film about the vietnam war , and you are then given a guided tour around the complex ,, the guide shows you some of the lethal traps used in the war , including if you want a chance to go in one off the tunnels which is about 100 meters long !!!
there is also a firing range at the complex if you want to try your hand at firing a gun of your choice
would recommend doing this tour while in ho chi minh city
Excellent service! Mr Tan was an exceptional host and guide. The ride to and from Cu Chi was seamless and comfortable. Will highly recommend Viator, the tour and Mr. Tan.
Great time. Interesting video from 1967 about Ch Chi fighters and Americans. The tunnel was fun and our guide Tom, was very knowledgeable. His English was tough at times but overall good. I would recommend this tour to all interested in Vietnam and the war.
We enjoyed our trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Our guide Tranh was very helpful and informative in helping us to understand how the Viet Cong could successfully withstood the US invasion. I also like the side trip to a farm to watch and experience rice paper making. Highly recommended!
Tan was very informative and had a good sense of humor. He provided a good insight of the history of Vietnam. He also recommended a lot of places to eat and sight see.
This tour was even more interesting and informative than I expected! Only blip was that the tour guide wasn't easy to find because I was looking for a sign or guide from Viator, but she was actually from a local tour operator, so it wasn't clear I was part of her tour. Anyway, our guide Anna was awesome and provided great info start to finish. Thanks!
Great tour, very informative thanks to Than our guide.
The small group format was definitely the right choice as we could ask many questions to our tour guide.
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.
gerry United Kingdom
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.
