Excellent, a must do tour, guide was fun, patient, informative and allowed time for photos and activities
The combination Cu Chi Halfday and Ho Chi Minh City tour was very pleasant and informative. The guide Toan was very fun and knowledge. We enjoyed the great Vietnam local coffee shop on the way. Definetely, we ll recommend this tour of Bravo Indochina to everyone
Excellent tour. It was just two of us, so very small group. The tour guide knew a ton about what we were seeing and also other cultures. He was able to weave that knowledge into great conversations and viewpoints. Highly recommended.
This tour was excellent. It was a very busy day but it included everything that we most wanted to see in and around Ho Chi Minh, from the Cu Chi tunnels and War Museum to the French architecture.
Our tour guide, NT, was extremely knowledgable about all of Vietnam's ancient and more present history and was extremely lovely and happy to have us ask him all of our questions. It was so great to have such an enthusiastic tour guide.
Additionally, NT took us to an incredible Vietnamese Restaurant for lunch, which was included in the price of the tour and the best Vietnamese food we had throughout our whole trip.
I would highly recommend that you book this tour ASAP, it was such an easy way of seeing all the important places, in a great amount of time and for such good value for money!
We love NT!
I and my 6 other lady friends availed of the Small Group Ho Chi Minh City and Cu Chi Tunnel Day Tour. It was a day filled with excitement and fun. The tour details were exactly how it was described on TripAdvisor/Viator website. The van that was provided for our use was very new with strong a/c that provided comfort in the heat of summer. The best part of the tour was the young tour guide, Mr.Wang, who was very knowledgeable in Vietnam War and Heritage, very fluent in English and also humorous. He made the entire day memorable for us. Lunch was amazing!! The price for this trip is very reasonable for whole tour experience. We are greatly satisfied and happy. I recommend this tour to those who plan to see Saigon and CuChi Tunnel.
The tour was value for money though the journey to chi chi tunnels was longer than expected. Luckily the tour guide decided to bring us lunch nearby as we were famished after walking the tunnels. The tour ended with a coffee sampling in a snack and souvenir shop which we enjoyed.
The small-group tour was as about as small as it gets...me, the driver and the guide. Tien the guide english was excellent which made the information on the trip easier to comprehend. The Cu Chi tunnels were really interesting and if I were in a larger group I don't think that I would have found the tour as beneficial.
The sites back in town were great and I was largely left to my own devices to tour them at my own pace. The Independence Palace, the impressive War Museum and the Post Office all gave a great cross sebction of history and architecture to admire.
All in all, a great way to spend a day.
Would not say this is a small group tour of the tunnels. However the guide was excellent, he was very knowledgeable and spoke near perfect English with lots of banter with his group. The actual tour was good but would have liked more time at the tunnels as I feel like we missed some of it.
Unfortunately, our guides English wasn't good so we struggled on this trip. The Cu Chi tunnels are a must see but the rest of the city can be seen on foot just as easily.
There was a miscommunication in the beginning. We confirmed with the agency a day before that the pick up time was 8am, but in an email sent to us late in the night, we were told that the pick up time was changed to 7am leading to a rather angry tour guide who was waiting for us.
Please note that the Cu Chi Tunnels is NOT part of the small group tour. You are picked up from the hotel and brought to a central location to go to Cu Chi Tunnel, with 30 other people in a rather rickety bus. The bus journey will take approx. 2 hours, including a stop at a commission shop you will be subjected to a sad story about the workers at the commission shop being affected by Agent Orange, however, all the workers there look healthy to us. You may want to consider perhaps taking a bot which could be faster as the bus has to drive within speed limits.
Tour guide is good and experienced he calls himself John Wayne.
Please have a hearty breakfast before you leave for Cu Chi tunnels, cause by the time you are back in the city, it will be close to 1430pm local time. There are hardly any food available in Cu Chi tunnel.
We were told that for lunch, we were supposed to Enjoy a Vietnamese lunch at a rooftop restaurant next to the Saigon River - what we got instead was lunch in a restaurant, upstairs of Coffee Bean, opposite the Ben Thanh Centre and certainly not at rooftop and next to Saigon River.
With so many disappointment, the rest of the tour didn't seem very exciting to us anymore.
Unfortunately the contact details on the booking were not valid therefore we could not confirm the booking and no one contacted us. Do not book until contact details have been updated. The tour itself is worthwhile, we had to book through our hotel.
