  • A great tour where you get to experience and see how crafty and ingenious the Vietnamese people are. Lam was a great guide with English skills that were very easy to understand.
  • A great experience to get insight into the life during the war, and a great opportunity to try the shooting range. Our guide Kevin was really helpful and great at explaining.
  • The tour was well organised, Kevin our guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Was very interesting and would recommend.

  • Our guide was Beo and he was great! He explained a lot and answered all our questions. He even gave us tips and recommendations for restaurants to try. I had a great time! Totally recommend it!
  • Highly recommended. Great taking care and information background Fun and Local knowledge storytelling.
  • It was a great eye opener on how creative Vietnamese can get when push come to shove. Our tour was Vinh and he was great in explaining the entire trip. He also knows how to lighten up the mood throughout our journey to Cu Chi tunnel. Only downside of the trip is that we get to spend only 2 hours in that place. Would have like to spend a little more time in Cu Chi tunnel.
  • The Cu Chi tour was run very smoothly which allowed us all the fully enjoy learning about the Vietnam War and the tunnels themselves. Tu was an excellent guide who gave lots of sombre information about the war while also keeping the tour fun and interesting. Crawling through the tunnels was a cool experience also.
  • I joined in on the morning Cu Chi luxury tour with Duc and Khar (driver) and it was an excellent experience. Pick-up from the hotel was on time and smooth. Duc was very polite , funny and made sure that the group was safe. He was with the group all throughout the tunnel tour and made sure to give explanations about the historical context of the places we were visiting. Very good value for money. We had one person in the group who only availed of the hotel pick up but Duc and Khar were nice enough to drop him off at their hotel.
  • Our tour guide Vinh was amazing! Definitely recommend this tour. Enjoyed the pace, the story telling and the experiences.
  • Taun was a great guide and gave us the best tour of the cu chi tunnels along with his personal experiences throughout the war which was very special. Highly recommend booking with this company. Easy, accommodating and comfy. Thank you!
  • It was so sad. The host fought in the Vietnam war and told us about what happened to him. He has been through so much
  • Guide (Mr Foo) has many stories and facts to share. Funny guy. If unclear he would try to explain until it makes sense. It was a busy day at the Cu Chi tunnels, and he managed to navigate the place to skip the queues and get ahead of the big group tours. The transport was comfortable. Tips: bring plenty of wet wipes. enjoy the trip!
  • So good day tour tunnels with many people come from another country but with the guide Nelson is easygoing for take care of us and shared with more information about the history of part the tour . Highly recommended this guide !
  • This tour was very good to learn a lot about what actually happened in the Vietnam War. Joe was a great tour guide and had a lot of knowledge about the history as well as shared a bit about personal experiences after the war which I thought was interesting and important to hear the effects. If you are claustrophobic and are wondering if you could do this tour, you absolutely can. You have the option not to go in the tunnels (only about a 5 minute portion of the tour anyways). Would highly recommend this tour.
  • I recommend this tour. Our guide, Big Dave, was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tunnels are a very immersive experience of the history of Vietnam. Don’t miss out on it, I recommend taking this tour.
  • Excellent tour overall. Big Dave was very helpful and knowledgeable about the history of Vietnam. The experience is very immersive. This is a must-do tour.
  • Nice lovely day to enjoy the history of the war in the tunnels. The great guide Nelson for the trip with more information about the local people live there after the war. We learnt more about him and highly recommended this trip
  • The tour was amazing with a lot of interesting facts about the Vietnam war. The guide, Kai did a great job with great English. Will definitely recommend this to anyone!
  • Tour guide Alex was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Would have preferred less spoken information on the drive back to the city as we were pretty tired by then.
  • It was a great experience (although we had a long drive to reach the tunnels). Our guide, Kai was brilliant having great knowledge, good sense of humor and patience. Crawling through the tunnel was an unforgettable experience. Thank you Kai for a great tour!
  • The tour was informative, with a historical element. ‘Alan’ our tour guide was friendly, funny and knowledgable about her country. The tour itself was good below are the pros and cons: Pros: 1. Hotel pick up & Drop off. 2. English speaking guide. 3. Chu Chi tunnels and the history. 4. Free bottle of water and a taste of the local cuisine back in the 1960’s. Cons: 1. There was a lot of waiting. 2. My seat didn’t have a seat belt. 3. Driver using his mobile phone. The parts I didn’t like was we went for a 20 minute stop off after driving around 30 minutes out of Ho Chi Minh City. The stop was where ‘disabled and less able bodied people affect through generations of the war who couldn’t work’ would paint art and sell it. I found the concept was nice however…. Many pieces look exactly the same I thought each one was individually unique. And the prices were very expensive. The other part that was not so great was another stop in the park. We headed to the firing range, where you can fire a real life gun. The park sells billets for 60,000 VD each and you can only purchase a minimum of 10 bullets at a time… 600,000 VD. We didn’t fancy shooting a gun but the waiting area is right next to the shooting range and when I say it’s loud I mean loud. People were sitting with their fingers in their ears or putting tissue paper in whilst we waited around 25 minutes. You can get refreshments here, but be good at lip reading as you can’t hear anything other than your ears ringing. On a positive, you get to learn about the history, see all the traps that were made and crawl through the tunnels which was exciting. I would recommend this tour overall.
