The trip was great and well arranged we were very interested in the history of the country
we were not able to join the tour as we were not able to read the PICK-UP time in the Voucher. Would suggest the supplier to send a fax or leave a mail message to guests hotel room for proper endorsement and get the name of the hotel staff who got the message. even though we were not able to go the tour i will still give 5 star as I heard this is a must see place in Vietnam. Hope to visit this place soon.
We signed up for a group tour but ended up with a private tour of 2! The guide Wang was explained thoroughly the different aspects of the tour and he spoke good English! :) loved the Cuchi tunnels and it was a great learning experience! The wildlife reserve was a nice touch and end to the trip! :)
Thought the tour was great. Tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable.
Overall is a nice tour. unfortunately, we are unable to visit the wildlife rescue station, But the tour guide have replaced us the cricket farm visit. The tour guide is very friendly and talkative. We are enjoy the tour very much.
Excellent private tour of the Cu Chi tunnels and Cao Dai temple. We also managed a quick visit to the Wildlife Rescue Station, which was the highlight of the trip. I saw a baby gibbon that was absolutely adorable. Our guide Tuan was absolutely wonderful and very knowledgeable. The only reason we did not rate it five stars is because the lunch was a bit underwhelming. Otherwise, great tour. We recommend it!
I wasn't expecting this to be a private tour, which was a pleasant surprise. We were taken around in a literal private car, as the information says. The W.A.R. station wasn't open, so we were taken to the handicap factory instead which was nice, but wasn't what we really wanted. We were shown how the lacquer was made but people where were handicapped by agent orange, which was really cool. Next, we were taken to the Cao Dai Temple which was an interesting experience. The whole religion of Cao Dai was befuddling to us, so we had to look it up and get more information after the tour. Finally, we went to the Cu Chi Tunnels. That was probably the best part of the tour, but it was horrifying at the same time. We went down into the tunnels, but had to go out as soon as possible because it really induced claustrophobia. The tour guide was really kind, and he was really trying his best to help us understand his country.
The tour itself was great, our tour guide had very good English. It did say about spending approximately 2.5hours at the Chu Chi Tunnels however I think in total we were there for about 45 minutes.
The tunnels were AMAZING! So much history and we crawled through tunnels, ate local food and shot rifles! The Cao Dai temple was beautiful and it was great to see a ceremony in progress.
Unfortunately the wildlife rescue station was closed so we saw a workshop instead where the staff were pushy.
My pick up was very late 70mins, due to viator not passing on my hotel details to the operator this meant that we sat in peak hour traffic getting out of Saigon which further shortened our stay at the Cu Chi Tunnels. Besides this, the tour guide very knowledgeable and driver of a private SUV was excellent. The Cao Dai temple and religion was confusing but very interesting. Crawling through the Cu Chi tunnels 70km N of Saigon and talking about the exhibits were a highlight of the trip. The late lunch was enormous and very tasty. We did not visit the Wildlife Rescue station as it was closed that day. Despite the initial problems the tour very pretty good.

The tour guide was pleasant, but we had a slight language barrier.After some confusion around whether the temple was open or not, we did gain access and it was impressive. The driver had trouble finding the Wildlife Rescue Station and there was no one there to educate us about the animals. However, we had a delicious, authentic lunch at a local restaurant and the Cu Chi Tunnels were most interesting. Our guide seemed more knowledgeable about this stop and relayed the information well.
We did this tour recently but it wasn't what it advertised to be. Having been specified as "private" when it wasn't (we ended up sharing the tour with 2 other people), as well as not going to the Wildlife Rescue Station (which was the main reason for choosing to pay extra to book this tour) was very disappointing considering how expensive this tour was - really get ripped off. The tour guide however was very lovely.
Very very overprized...
Good guide but not worth it.
The Tunnels are not very special and very turisty.
Not a good experience with the trip. Spent many hours on the road. Rescue station did not have many animals. The guide inside the station was rude and ignoring our group. The temple was just a huge place but that was it. The Cuchi Tunnels was interesting and that was the only place worth visiting. Our guide took us to lunch around 2:00 pm at a restaurant near Cao Dai temple. This was where they take their clients to for lunch. The food was horrible, more like left over food. The restaurant was also dishonest on our drink charge. Would not recommend this tour.
