I highly recommend this tour our guide was excellent and the trip was well organized. We were supplied with continuous drinks and snacks, a delicious lunch was provided . The boat trip was amazing in itself but the tour was very interesting and educational got to go into the tunnels themselves.10 out of ten!

Great trip. Decided to take the speedboat option to the cu chi tunnels and really enjoyed it. Guide was excellent and much more interesting to spend an hour on the speedboat than that and more in a coach. Would definitely recommend a trip to the cu chi tunnels and this tour.

The speedboat tour was a great alternative to the usual car/boat transfer to the cu chi tunnels - no traffic and we got to see the country side cruising down the Saigon river. Our guide Chau was very knowledgeable and extremely professional, making sure our whole morning ran very smoothly. The story of the tunnels was informative and we got a great insight into how the people survived in the war. Lunch to finish off the morning was delicious with plenty of food and drinks. Highly recommend the 7am start to beat the crowds and the heat!

This was an awesome tour, I had a day of downtime on my business trip. The tour was very informative and we had a very friendly tour guide. Plus I had a chance to let loose on a machine gun. The speed boat was definitely comfortable and well worth it, considering after crawling through the tunnels I did break quite a bit of sweat...Nonetheless, I highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic tour with Andy Anh as our guide. The boat trip is the best way to get to CuChi the only downside is it is loud and you cannot hear any information on the way. Lots of drinks and fruit to enjoy on the trip - both ways. We went in the afternoon and the lunch was ready when we arrived and it was plentiful and delicious. The walk through the site was quite amazing. Over 250 miles of tunnels dug in such inhospitable terrain and heat over 20 years it is hard to understand the fear the locals went through for so long. Going into the tunnels to experience the heat, darkness and size is well worth doing even if you are a little claustrophobic. The hardest part is dropping into the first pit inside the tunnel ... adrenaline is a wonderful thing when you are apprehensive. You can pay for a package of bullets for a variety of gun if you want to complete the experience. Not for everyone but there is no pressure to participate. Highly recommend this tour to gain a greater understanding of the life lived by the Vietnamese people so recently.

Transport to the Cu Chi tunnels via the speed boat was excellent. Very good info provided during boat trip nice sandwich and drink provided for breakfast. Tour of tunnels area was good, guide very knowledgeable about the war and tunnel area. Would recommend the morning trip as it was getting very busty when we left after a very nice lunch that was provided on site.
