This trip doesn't include hotel pick up, which we didn't spot when we were looking, not a problem for us but beware. Guide was very charming and knowledgeable and her English was superb, a lovely guide to have. Apart from the one tunnel that everyone has the opportunity to go through, we were able to go through tunnels connecting the kitchen and meeting room as well. As said before, although busy, the guide was able to navigate us round so we had chance to see everything without being overcrowded. Driver did an excellent job negotiating the HCM traffic.
This was a great trip! Our guide was very enthusiastic! he tried to talk me out of the shooting range experience but other than that I think he was great. Overall, good experience.
The guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. Despite a crowded day at the tunnel, she managed to circumvent the crowd and tell us stories about each important component of the tour without us waiting too long.
Great day. Jerry the guide was the man! Extensive knowledge and very friendly and helpful.
This tour was easily arranged and very well organized from the pick up, to the transportation, to the actual tour. It was a nice small size so it felt personal. The guide was engaging and very sweet. Would definitely recommend!
I was solo for the weekend after a regional business trip and signed up for this small group tour of the chu chi tunnels. It was very well run, on time, our guide spoke good english, and there was only about 12-15 ppl, which made for a nice size. The tunnels and exhibits are well worth seeing and just about 1.5 hrs from Ho Chi Minh city make this a great half day excursion for anyone!
excellent. Nicemall group. Knowlegable guide, who was very lovely.
Knowledgeable guide, small group, comfortable transportation and a bonus little pit stop to see how rice paper cakes are made in a village nearby. Amazing experience trying to walk through the tunnels. Excellent tour, highly recommended!
We had a small group by chance and a really informative tour guide, it made the visit to Cu Chi easy and stress free.
A must do in Saigon!! Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Crawling around through the tunnels was amazing! LOVED this tour!!
Fantastic tour and fantastic value. Our tour guide, Thanh from Urban Adventure was really knowledgeable. The drive over took almost 2 hours and he gave us some background on the way for 30 mins or so.
On the way we stopped at a farm where they make rice paper and we had a go at that which was fun.
We reached Cu Chi and our guide took us around the area and explained things in detail. Lots of things to see and you can fire an M16 on the way.You can go through some of the tunnels. Not too hard. We went in August and it was pretty warm which was expected. Half way along there's a shop where you can buy drinks, food and souvenirs.
There's a movie at the end and a local guide gave a bot of a low-down to enhance the experience.
Plenty of photo opportunities. Bring water :
Great tour! Definitely worth seeing if you're in Ho Chi Minh city. The history and tunnels are interesting and our guide was really knowledgeable. The tunnels are extremely hot and small, just heads up if you are claustrophobic, but it's very easy to exit after the 1st 20 meters.
Great! Nothing to complain about. I went here in June, 2016, and I still remember it fondly. I had always wanted to go here, so this was an amazing experience for me. Our guide I forget her name, but I think she was of Filipino decent was waiting for us on time at specified location. She was very nice and gave us a lot of information about the history of the area. On our way there, had a fun stop at a rice paper-making farm, where we got to try making the rice paper impossible and feeding some of the biggest pigs I've ever seen in my life. The tunnels are amazing. Even if you don't crawl through them, seeing the history and being in the area is worth it. My only advice would be to bring a pair of earplugs with you, as the tour takes a stop at a shooting range. The guns are extremely loud and you don't get earplugs until you get right next to the range. The tour isn't that long six hours or so, but that's all you need, plus in the summer, the heat can be pretty harsh, so definitely bring a drink or buy one at the entrance. Definitely do this tour if you're in the area!
This was a great tour and one of the bright highlights of my trip to Vietnam. The coolest part of the tour was actually crawling through the tunnels not for the faint of heart. I highly recommend this tour.
I had a lot of fun on this tour! The tour guide Queenie was awesome by giving us a lot of history and humor during the tour. Highly recommend!
Great experience, although I was not aware the tunnels would be so HOT inside. Very informative and great guide.
Awesome trip. It takes a while to go and come back but I really enjoyed this trip. Don't worry if you are claustrophobic in the tunnels you have an exit every 20 meters.... just allow a big gap between you and the person in front of you.
If you decide to shoot the weapons they are extremely over priced.
Fascinating tour with a vivacious and very friendly tour guide who took us to a family run pig farm after the visit to the tunnels where we learnt how to make rice paper.
Cu Chi Tunnel tour was an awesome experience with our tour guide Queenie. With a small group of 10, we left from the Saigon Post Office at 7:30 am and arrived to Cu Chi Tunnels before many of the other tour groups. I would highly recommend visiting Cu Chi Tunnels as early as possible so that you can have to most time to learn about the tunnels without being hurried by other groups.
On the way back, we briefly stopped at a little house and learned how to make rice paper. The stop overall was only around 15 minutes but it was a good little additional. We were also able to feed the livestock of pigs other tour group's rice paper creations. The piglets were SUPER cute!
As stated in the tour agenda, we were promptly back by 1 PM.
A great tour with a fabulous tour guide. Highly recommended
This trip was awesome, especially with our incredible, hilarious tour guide, Ashley! She was so informative of Ho Chi Minh City and the Cu Chi Tunnels! I recommend requesting Ashley for ANY trips in and outside of Ho Chi Minh City!!! As for the tour itself, we visited the tunnels to see how the Viet Cong operated during the war. Our group was also able to go to a shooting range too!
This tour was fantastic! It was so interesting to learn more about the war and have a better understanding regarding many aspects.
Our tour guide was the best! She really took a lot of time to explain things thoroughly and had a great attitude.
Awesome tour. The pride the Vietnamese people take in their ingenuity is inspiring. The guides were great and the grouds were clean and well maintained. If you go to Saigon this tour is a must.
As a solo traveller, I looked into arranged day trips for ease of travel. This tour was excellent - the Cu Chi tunnels are quite difficult to get to via public transport so being transported there was perfect.
I really enjoyed going through the tunnels and glad I was allowed to continue when most of the group opted out.
Trying an entrance of one of the tunnels was also an experience I will not forget.
I highly recommend this tour, especially as I was back in the city for early dinner, which meant I had plenty of time to do other activities.
