Good value for money, guide 'Mike' was informative and jokey, picked up from and to our hotel. We were picked up 10 mins late, and had what I thought was an unnecessary stop on the way, but this turned out to be a good thing, as all other groups arrived early, so when we got there, there was still other groups, but by time we got to the tunnel walking, we were the only ones left, so had the place to ourselves, which was nice.

Perfectly organized tour, nothing more. The tunnels themselves are something special, you must visit if you are in Ho Chi Minh City, the guide has good enough English. But if there is an opportunity it is better to go back by boat on the Saigon River. Cards are accepted.

We had an excellent tour with the best tour guide Ethan!! He explained everything very well and understandable. We found the Cu Chi Tunnels absolutely worth seeing and Ethan explained a lot background information. Can absolutely recommend!

Highly recommend this trip! The guide we had was great; it was "fun" and we got a lot of interesting information. The environment around Cu Chi is cool and it was really an experience to visit the tunnels !!
