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.
Very knowledegable and helpful tour guide (Queenie). The tour itself is fantastic. Very good experience.
This trip was so enjoyable, our guide Huong (Ms Linda) was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We found it really easy to ask her questions throughout the day, and she was happy to answer. We had an amazing experience at both the Cao Dai Temple and the Cu Chi tunnels and would definitely book through this operator again, we would request Huong again too!
Thanks for making our trip so enjoyable

My visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels was an amazing experience. The tour begins with an introductory film, maps, and other visuals to give you an overall idea of the extensive organization of and purpose for the tunnels. It was interesting to see the actual tunnel entrances, the weapons, and the still functioning underground kitchen. A highlight was a crawl through the tunnel for tourists. The person leading me through this tunnel even offered to take some photos of me while in there (nice touch). The visit to the Cao Dai Temple was even more spectacular! The colors and details of the temple building both inside and out were beyond belief. I was so fortunate to arrive at the noon prayer service where there was a huge amount of worshipers seated on the temple floor. It was great to view the service and, in my own way, participate with the worshipers from where I stood. It was an awesome and reverent experience.
My tour guide, Long Huynh, made the day's activities so memorable with his extensive knowledge and familiarity of the places that we visited. It was an excellent day trip with an excellent guide.
Very good guide, gentle/caring, talkative, knowledgeable. I happened to be the only tourist that day so i got a VIP service
Excellent trip. Informative guide, the lunch was very good, and trip to/in the Cu Chi tunnels awesome.
One of the best tours I have ever done......outstanding......very personalized........
This was a fascinating tour and well worth the time. We explored a rubber plantation, saw the very unusual ecumenical temple of Cao Dai and explored the tunnels. Our guide was very helpful and gave us insights that we would never have gotten had we toured these sites alone.
The organisers are excellent at ensuring they have small groups and have each stage of the trip well planned. Everything was explained from the start and refreshment breaks factored in. Our guide, Gem, was very knowledgeable and even explained some things to us that were not part of the tour.
Great value for money. It is a full day trip which gives you an opportunity to see some of the countryside in addition to the tunnels and the temple. The pick up was on time and the vehicle comfortable. The driving was sensible and safe. The guide was was knowledgeable and helpful. Lunch was a pleasant experience for me and my traveling companions.
Lunch arrangement is quite good. Tourist guide still need improvement.
Cao Dai Temple was a bit of a letdown, but Cu Chi Tunnels were great, tour guides English could be improved, sometimes very hard to understand especially when surrounded by noise.
Cao Dai Temple can be skipped. Cu Chi Tunnels very interesting. Guide was so so.
The timing for the Cao Dai Temple was right. We were able to see the ceremony. Again, our guide, Huy Nguyen, was great.
The Cu Chi tunnel gave an insight into the determination and ingenuity of the Vietcong. It was guerilla warfare at its best.
The downside was the distance we had to travel.
