Very fun and informative! We had a lot of fun crawling through the tunnels and it was fascinating to learn more about how the war affected this region and its people.
Excellent tour, our guide John was both humorous and informative. Excellent value for a half day tour as many tours are four times the price of this. Would highly recommend!
Every interesting to understand VC! Definitely a must to do after the war museum! Our tour guide Tom was very friendly and funny, it was a bit difficult to understand him but we got used to his accents at the end the tour. It wouldn't have been the same without him.
We planned to visit Cu Chi Tunnel and was looking for tour when we reached HCMC. Hotel quoted us usd80 per pax while taxi quoted us usd100 per pax. Our Vietnam friend went to local agent and also around the same price. My friend got me the e-voucher through Viator and it cost me only 49.56sgd for two. It is so worth it. The tour was conducted by local tour TNK. We got the e-voucher and went to TNK tour for confirmation and giving the pick up address. Hope they can improve where there is a field to put in pick-up address and send us confirmation with pick up address on it. This solve the trouble that we have to visit the TNK travel agent personally to confirm.
It was 1.5 to 2 hours drive from HCMC depending on traffic condition. The bus which took us there was air-conditioned and tour guide speaks good English.
Cu Chi tunnel is a very fascinating place to visit, we can see how creative they were in war time. The underground tunnel is so tiny and I was not able to go through all. The highlight will be the Shooting range where we needed to purchase the bullet and practice in the shooting range. The price of the bullet is not cheap, 2.50sgd per bullet and minimum purchase of 10 bullets. It was worth and we had fun in the shooting range.
1 buy the tour ticket from Viator, a lots cheaper
2 opt for afternoon tour, not as busy as morning tour
3 wear proper attire. Advise to wear thin clothing due to hot weather, sneaker and proper walking shoes, umbrella or electronic hand held fan, hat or cap etc. Be prepare that it may be raining days and the soil will get wet and muddy. Try not to wear white shoes if possible because muddy soil can stain onto white shoes.
4 prepare enough water for the tour due to hot weather. Tour guide will give one bottle of mineral water, but good to prepare more water.
5 may need to prepare insect repellent too.
The trip was awesome! My friends and I enjoyed it a lot! Alex is an extraordinary tour guide, I never seen such a fun loving and passionate tour guide in my life ...
La nostra guida è stata eccezionale e molto entusiasta. Giro be organizzato e rimborso previsto per il taxi che avevamo dovuto prendere per arrivare in agenzia per la partenza! Consigliato!
The tour was really accommodating and the tour guide was really engaging! Definitely felt like we got more out of what we paid for, this trip really exceeded our expectations and I had 3 other friends go on the tour after me because I told them they couldn and #39;t visit Ho Chi Minh without it!
We had a great afternoon and really enjoyed this tour. The Cu Chi tunnels were interesting but the real highlight was our tour guide! Unfortunately I can't remember his name but I think his nickname is Mr Australia. He was very entertaining and made the bus journey enjoyable. He provided lots of information and a song about Vietnam and gave an insight into their culture and people. Loved the trip!
Definitely worth the price paid on viator which includes the entrance fee... The others on our tour who booked through agents etc had to pay the fee in cash on the bus. Tour guide had great sense of humor and was very knowledgeable about the tunnels. Would recommend.
It was a really fascinating tour. Our guide Hank was excellent.
