If you only take one trip, take this one. On the way to the tunnels, you enjoy fruit and croissants as well as amazing scenery. The tour of the tunnels is fascinating and the trip back gives you another perspective of life on and around the river. Our guide was excellent and

A first class trip. Our guide 'Ka' was outstanding; his English, his knowledge of the site and history of the war. The meal at the site was good quality and the speedboat trip worth every penny. Highly recommended.
