Fantastic day trip and well supported from your rep.
Excellent guide, Nguyen. Very informative and friendly. Good English.
Enjoyable speedboat trip to tunnels with just 2 others. Then back by road to see more scenery.
Was a great trip, our guide was very well informed and we found the Cu Chi trip incredibly informative and interesting. River journey very nice but maybe shouldn't have eaten that cricket at farm! Lunch later was an excellent meal too. A most enjoyable trip.
A very good tour all round. The speedboat journey to the tunnels was refreshing way of getting there and the tunnels themselves with all the history were fascinating.
Very good. We enjoyed every minute of it right from the hotel collection to the motorboat ride to the Cu Chi tunnels, the visit to the cricket farm and then for a nice meal in a restaurant and back to the hotel. The travel guide was really friendly and helpful and so were the people at the cricket farm.
Recommend that no one opts for the paper making rather than the cricket farm as it is included within the Cu Chi tunnels site anyhow. A memorable day!

We took the morning speedboat from Saigon to the tunnels and visited the cricket farm. Our guide was excellent. The tunnel tour is very interesting and is a must when visiting the area. The cricket farm was brilliant. Only a small place but afterwards you have the opportunity to make a spring roll with deep fried crickets and taste the. I found them rather tasty, a little like beef crisps. The lunch on this tour was out of this world, we ate so much good food in a lovely restaurant, beautifully clean and well presented
Great trip. Great guide. Everything promised was delivered.

Brilliant trip and Yao our guide spoke great English and very informative. Got the speedboat back to the city as opposed to the tunnels and caught the afternoon sun on the boat. Lovely meal too in a nice location. Rice paper making was also interesting.
The whole trip was well worth it. We were picked up from hotel, short drive to the river and taken on an amazing trip down the river into the heart of Vietnam by speedboat. It gave a totally different view of Vietnam that you don't get in the city. We got to the cu chi tunnels and had a good look around. You can even have a go at firing an AK47 !
We were then taken to a cricket farm where after seeing the various stages of their growth you then get the chance to taste the end result. Deep fried in rice paper with salads. I did not do the sampling but my husband was daft enough to try. One gentleman in the group was thoroughly enjoying them though I think he was hungry.
We were then driven back into Saigon where we were taken to a beautiful restaurant for lunch. I have to admit that after 2 weeks in Vietnam it is the best meal we have ever had.
Drop off back at hotel.
Would definatly recommend. The only downside we found was the guide didn't speak very good English and was difficult to understand and I felt we were a little rushed at the tunnels.
We highly recommend this tour - the Ch Chi tunnels were interesting and our guide was very informative. The highlight was shooting 10 rounds of an AK7 assault rifle which is an optional extra and a lot of fun. Lunch was at a lovely outside restaurant with great food a luckily for us good company with the other tour attendees.
