Explore above and below ground to see what were once hidden supply routes, kitchens, and hospitals.

Great trip
Really good tour. Highly recommend using them and getting in early. Just as we were leaving it was starting to really build up with other tourists. You miss all the traffic, get coffee, water, breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Tour group is small and the guide/s are really good!

Great experience & everything we expected
Did the half day by speedboat to cu chi tunnels with Harry as our guide. Everything was on time, Harry arriving promptly at our hotel for collection. Speed boat was fun with drinks/snacks provided (remember to take a jumper, it gets chilly). Harry's guide of cu chi tunnels was informative. Good to arrive early (morning tour) as not too crowded. Would highly recommend.

Great experience and very informative
This experience was amazing. From the hotel pickup to the speedboat cruise along the river all the way to Cu Chi Tunnels. Our tour guide was very informative and kept our group very interested throughout the whole day. Finishing the tour off with a traditional Vietnamese lunch, which was provided, was great too.

Cu chi tunnels by boat - you won’t regret it
Choosing to go to Cu Chi tunnel by speed boat was the best idea. Service was really good and well organised. You can enjoy the ride and get some fresh air while on the river before arriving to the tunnels. Bau was giving us exhaustive explanation while visiting the site. They will make you try going through the tunnel... you will have to bend and depending on your height to squat since they are low and tight

Nice boat tour to the tunnels
We were picked up at the hotel at 7:15 and arrived at the harbor where the boat was waiting. At the boat there was snacks and drinks and after 90 minutes we arrived to the tunnels. The guide explained the tunnels and history to us before we went back to Saigon by boat again. In Saigon we had lunch at the restaurant next to the harbor.

No kids life jackets
We travelled with two young kids. There were several other children on the boat. The overall experience was good but reviewing to let parents know that child sized life jackets were not provided for the kids - they all wore adult life jackets.
I really enjoyed seeing all the local activity on the river. Bring a hair band for your hair / sunglasses to shield your eyes from the wind.
Lunch afterwards was delicious (and food requirements catered for eg. Gluten free vegetarian etc).

Fantastic outing
We were very pleased that we chose to see the Cu Chi tunnels this way. Seeing the city and surrounding area from the water was a great way to start the tour. Our guide, Hang was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the whole team was very service oriented. Hang even lent her sweater to a young girl who was quite cold on the boat ride (we did the early morning tour so it was a bit chilly). We were served a light breakfast, and later a more substantial lunch, both of which were delicious.

The tour of the the tunnels was very informative - and a good follow up after visiting the War Remnants Museum the previous day. We learned a lot and gained a little bit of insight as to what it must have been like for both sides during the war.

A wonderful trip - a 'must do' for Saigon visitors
Nov 2019
We went as a family group ages between 18 and 81 ! Everyone really enjoyed it although I should add that our 81 year old was very physically fit. It's not hugely demanding but involves a 1.5 km walk and some steps. The boat part is exciting for young people ( fast) and enjoyable for the older folks ( views are amazing) Klas, our guide was fabulous - highly knowledgeable and a great speaker.

Best way to do Cu Chi Tunnels
Nov 2019
At the beginning I was a bit hesitant to even see Cu Chi tunnels as we did not want to spend 2 hours in car. Luckily, I found Les Rives in the book guide. It is a bit more expensive but totally worth it. From pick up in the hotel lobby, to nice breakfast to funny ride to tunnels. Tunnels themselves are bit overcrowded but our guide was a great guy avoiding large groups. He told us a bit more information as local. The lunch at the end was delicious. We can only recommend this tour.
