Really well designed and well organized trip. Our guide was very good, and the Cu Chi Tunnels were fascinating. Seeing the cricket farm and trying some deep fried crickets was a very nice add-on to the trip. Highly recommended.
Best way to see Cu Chi Tunnels, without getting stuck in the bus during heavy traffic hours. Early morning boat ride was pleasantly cool, with excellent coffee, breakfast and fruits being served on the boat. Guides were excellent, even offering personal stories from family history, and knew how to navigate around the tunnels with maximum efficiency. Lunch by the river was plentiful and delicious. Enjoyed the boat ride back to city, which was a welcome treat after the long sweaty walk around the tunnels.
This was a great tour. We were picked up right at our hotel Riverside Serviced Apartments in the boat which was fantastic. The river is smooth riding and really nice to get some air blowing on you when it is hot out. I would not say there is a ton to see along the river, but a very pleasant ride. You dock right at the Cu Chi tunnels and the tour is excellent. Our grouped branched after the Cu Chi tour and our guide took my two daughters and myself to an organic farm, a rubber tree plantation, a little spot where we learned to make rice paper and then to a cricket farm where we got to sample crickets freshly cooked in garlic. Made for an amazing day.
The tour was wonderful. The experience of travelling by boat on the Saigon River was wonderful, our tour guide was great. The boat was clean and food was offered. The tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels as wonderful as well. Very interesting with great commentary by our guide who was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour!
The tour was amazing! The trip up on the Saigon River was beautiful and relaxing, was also great to take in life on the river. Our guide of the tunnel was very informative on the Vietnam War and Cu Chi Tunnels. Was also great to get a feel for local life in the area.
Fantastic way to get to the Cu Chi tunnels. Tam, our tour guide, was fantastic and so knowledgable. The boat ride up and back is great. You arrive then have the tour, go to the shooting range and then lunch. All of this done before the bus loads arrive. Back in Saigon by 1pm. Highly recommend.
It was an excellent tour. Everything very well organized, pick-up and drop-off on time. Our tour guide was very comprehensive and explained everything as we were walking through the Cu Chi Tunnels area. Strongly recomended if you also want to skip the Saigon traffic!
Booked the trip online before arriving Vietnam, bus arrived for hotel pick-up, and the excursion began. Boat was clean, morning breakfast far, and a little Vietnamese coffee was included to start off the 35 min boat ride up the Siagon River toward Cambodia. We were very lucky and had a awesome guide and great boat crew. Provided history of sights and sounds along the way. Arrived the Cu Chi Tunnels for a 2 your tour and ultimately a 100 meter tunnel exploration. Afterward we had a delicious lunch dockside before the return boat ride to Ho Chi Ming City WiFi on boat ride back too!. Arrived at dock around 1pm, then back to the hotel. Highly recommend the Early Half-Day Tour to beat the other tours and afternoon heat. Well worth it and highly recommended.
Best way to experience Cu Chi Tunnels!
The tour was great from start to finish, the boat trip was very good lots of cold drinks our guides were very helpful. The Cu Chi tunnels are very interesting lots to see and do. And the stop off places on the way back were very good the rice paper making especially.
Ok so I just submitted a quite lengthy review which I'm not sure got sent! So here's a very short one just in case you get this twice!
Fantastic trip from start to finish, could not fault a thing. Attangents fulfilled, fantastic guide, looked after the shoe way through. Excellent buffet lunch and breakfast on the boat. You get so much value for your money and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone thinking of doing the Cu Chi Tunnels by luxury speed boat.
A very nice experience in a boat and Cu Chi Tunnels are just something outstanding!
The extra tour in a mini bus was also something which can be put nto a memory - eating crickets... Mmm.. Unforgettable! Cute family businesses are so nice to visit!
Don't visit the factory of Handicrafts, where disabled people work - it is a complete fake this enterprise!
They sale the pictures and other pieces of art by extremely high prices almost forcing you to buy a thing! Not a good expereince being fooled around... We found the same stuff almost 3 times cheaper in a normal supermarket...
Had a great trip definitely would recommend traveling by speedboat to the Cu Chi tunnels. Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Lunch was authentic Vietnamese, fresh and very tasty. The speedboat was comfortable with just the right number of people on the trip fresh fruit and refreshments provided on the boat were more than sufficient. Would do this trip again.
This was a most amazing tour, from the time we were picked up at our hotel until our return. The driver was very good and our guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable. The boat trip was a great way to get to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Highly recommend the early departure, we got there before all the tour buses which made the experience even better. Also a great lunch.
Great tour. Guide was knowledgeable and kept things interesting. I would highly recommend this tour for people interested in a long bike ride through more undiscovered parts of Vietnam as well as a less touristy experience at the Cu Chi Tunnels.
Doing what: Small-Group Cu Chi Tunnels Boat and Bike Tour
Our guide was fantastic on this trip and very knowledgable ! We went on a speedboat and served cool drinks and fresh fruit throughout the journey. The Cu Chi tunnels were amazing and really brought alive the war and what that entailed! Lunch was fantastic! I would recommend this trip as one not to be missed!
Great tour guide, amazing food, and a must see historical site. The Cu Chi tunnel visit really changed how we viewed the struggles of the Viet Cong during the war. This was one of the highlights of our time in Ho Chi Minh.
It was great to travel by boat to Cu Chi tunnels, we beat the crowds. So made it easy getting around the tunnels. Our guide Kha was great.
Would definitely recommend.
This tour was excellent. It was a very busy day but it included everything that we most wanted to see in and around Ho Chi Minh, from the Cu Chi tunnels and War Museum to the French architecture.
Our tour guide, NT, was extremely knowledgable about all of Vietnam's ancient and more present history and was extremely lovely and happy to have us ask him all of our questions. It was so great to have such an enthusiastic tour guide.
Additionally, NT took us to an incredible Vietnamese Restaurant for lunch, which was included in the price of the tour and the best Vietnamese food we had throughout our whole trip.
I would highly recommend that you book this tour ASAP, it was such an easy way of seeing all the important places, in a great amount of time and for such good value for money!
We love NT!
Totally enjoyed this half day tour. Loved the boat trip up the river to the Cu Chi Tunnels, very relaxing. A great lunch is provided at the end of the tour before heading back to Ho Chi Minh. Well worth a visit.
This tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels in combination with a tour of the Cao Dai Temple is a must if you visit Ho Chi Minh City. Our transportation was modern and comfortable. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and his English was outstanding. The tunnel tour outlined the amazing feats of the Vietnamese soldiers during the wars with France and US. The Cao Dai Temple is an amazing sight and gives an interesting glimpse into a unique culture. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
I and my 6 other lady friends availed of the Small Group Ho Chi Minh City and Cu Chi Tunnel Day Tour. It was a day filled with excitement and fun. The tour details were exactly how it was described on TripAdvisor/Viator website. The van that was provided for our use was very new with strong a/c that provided comfort in the heat of summer. The best part of the tour was the young tour guide, Mr.Wang, who was very knowledgeable in Vietnam War and Heritage, very fluent in English and also humorous. He made the entire day memorable for us. Lunch was amazing!! The price for this trip is very reasonable for whole tour experience. We are greatly satisfied and happy. I recommend this tour to those who plan to see Saigon and CuChi Tunnel.
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!
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.

Although the itinerary states the Cao Dai Temple is the first stop before lunch and then the Cu Chi Tunnels, the Guide showed great foresight and took us to the Cu Chi Tunnels first to beat the crowds and the heat of the day. we practically had the place to ourselves which was great We then went to the Temple and arrived in time to see the prayer ceremony which was a memorable experience. From here we went to lunch. Make sure you bring your appetite as the food just keeps coming and is delicious. We then made the long trip back to HCMC. A great day and would recommend the tour itinerary be done this way.
