Had a great time, much better than going by bus I imagine! Tour guide was really great also, very knowledgable and really good communicator. Awesome food, loved it!
This is a great way to get to tunnels on a super speedboat which was spacious and very comfortable . Lovely views along Mekong river. Selection of cold drinks , water, fruit and breakfast sandwich if need although I had breakfast before . The staff and guide were all lovely . The trip was really interesting. Option of trying your hand on rifle range for extra which was fun . We had a super lunch outdoors at boat pier included . It was good to be there before got too busy so the 7am tour a good option . Highly recommmed!
well organised amazing tour. Really enjoyed river by speed boat 1,5 hour with small group of people to go there and the same back. Nice experience, good food, also Cuchi tunnels. At 2pm back in my hotel. Really excellent service ! Must try!
Excellent trip, picked up from hotel on time, speed boat up the Saigon river and enjoyed a very tasty lunch.
Despite the terrific storm with rivers of rain, tunnels tour was very interesting and thought provoking.
Tour guide very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English.
Well worth the price
Everything taken care of by well informed and knowledgeable guide Tam. The speedboat was a unique way of traveling to the tunnels and lunch was extremely good. Incredible value!
Great tour. Would highly recommend especially the 7am tour. You arrive before all the buses, it's cooler and its a great ride up the Siagon river. Very relaxing. Our guide was very informative and the food was great.
This Tour is well worth the money. We had an amazing and informative day. The buffet lunch provided was fresh and tasty. Our Leader Yung was helpful, professional and entertaining. The crew and staff on the speedboat were also good and provided life jackets and ponchos when it rained. Fruit and drink was also provided on the boat. A MUST DO IN HO CHI MIN.
I think every trip to Vietnam should include a trip to the tunnels, very informative tour. We travelled by speedboat along Saigon River as we wanted to have a good look around. Our guide had very good English and made sure we were looked after.
Great tour, guide was very knowledgable, boat was good, food was good.
This tour was incredible. The guide was informative and friendly, the site was amazing, and the whole event was superbly organised from start to finish. The hotel pick up/drop off made the day even more hassle-free. This is a must for any visitor to Saigon! Oh, and if you're a vegetarian, you will be very well looked after during the delicious lunch.
Our guide was awesome and we had a great time. The boat is really fast and this is a great way to see both the Saigon River and learn about the tunnels.
Great trip. Belting down the Mekong with a 200hp engine going 50 knots. Felt like we were in a movie. The guide was great with a lot of knowledge and spoke English fairly well. The tunnel complex is amazing and to see the various traps that the Vietcong invented is spine chilling. There is part of a tunnel that has been widened so as to fit westerners. Try it if you dare! Be warned - there is also a live firing range there. We were taken by surprise when, without warning, we could hear gunfire! We got to the firing range later. You can actually fire the WW2 weapons and you purchase bullets in lots of 10 for 40,000 or 50,000 dong each. AUS2.50 to AUS3. It is very, very, very loud.
Excellent tour, our guide was very knowledgable and no question was to small. It was a bonus going via speedboat
Excellent. Guide spoke perfect English and was well informed. Very good trip.
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.
highly recommended. Any visitor to 'nam should be compelled to go on this trip to develop a more clear understanding of what the Vietnamese had to endure during the war and the long term impact this has had on subsequent generations. We went with a mix of travellers and it is suitable for all ages, younger children included. I went down tunnels, fired an M-16 t a firing range and had an excellent guide explaining crucial elements of the war experience. The speedboat was also very enjoyable, and we were very well catered for. A fantastic half-day, well worth the money.
A great way to get to the tunnels. The boats are smooth and fast and you certainly beat the tour buses to the venue. The opportunity to watch the city fade into countryside and see the way of life change along the river banks is wonderful and all the time the boat offers WiFi. The tour of the tunnels is quite chilling skip the actual crawl along the tunnel if you're even in the slightest claustrophobic and whilst the propaganda of the presentation is evident it's a wonderful half-day out none the less.
Speedboat trip was enjoyable, quicker than by road and a nice alternative. Arrived nice and early to see the tunnels. Excellent tour guide. The rifle range was a bit of fun but worth doing. The early lunch was very good and we were back in the city by 1.00 to enjoy the rest of the day.
Very good tour, nice guide and explain everything with detail. I recommend going in the 07am tour since you arrive very early to Cu Chi. Trip by boat takes about one hour and 10 minutes. Try to walk the full length of the tunnel and of course take some shots on the shooting range.
Highly recommended...! Insightful tour with friendly tour guide..Plenty of food and drinks provided..
