Traveler Tips


  • "To save money bring your own water and snacks, and skip on the fun shooting, it's a huge rip off." See review
  • "Should anyone be clostraphobic don't do trip due to the fact that you have to crawl through small spaces for at least 20 metres." See review
  • "Expect about 3-4 hours in a bus round trip, with about 2 hours at the tunnels themselves." See review

This is the most amazing tour we had thanks to our tour guide Tuan. Having experienced the war himself first hand in Cu Chi area, his insights knowledge and personal stories made the tour the most memorable experience for us in Saigon. Definitely would recommend the tour to anyone who is interested in the war history of Vietnam.

Excellent tour guide Duc !
Anila_T
, Jul 2022
I have taken so many tours wherever we travel but this tour guide Duc was exceptional. He is very knowledgeable. The effort he takes and the details he mentions are itself worth in this trip which I didn’t see other tour guides doing there. Moreover I just loved his jokes. He just made sure to keep the ambiance very light with a lot of humor . We were just laughing throughout the trip at every small joke he makes. Excellent work Duc. The trip with this tour group was worth every Penny and a must do specially with children. We were with children between 8 to 15 years. Thank you so much.

Fascinating experience - especially for the brave

This tour is strictly to see (and experience) the tunnels - no other sightseeing or lunch is included. It offers a fascibit of history, and if you want to, you can enter a few of the safer ones. It does require walking bent over and they are claustrophobic,

We had such a great time at this tour! We learned so much and had such a fun time. Our tour guide, Duc Pham, really made it memorable with his humor and vast knowledge. He was able to answer every crazy question we asked him!

Tour guide not much of a guide unfortunately.

Unfortunately this was a really poorly executed tour. We were picked up on time and then driven to the CuChi Tunnels. We were told a couple of interesting pieces of information about Saigon as a city and why there are so many scooters on the roads. Unfortunately that is the only interesting information we received all day. Our tour guide seemed very inexperienced in touring a group round a site. He never checked the group were all together before moving on and just kept storming ahead to the next point of interest. At each point he would give a few words to whoever was near him at the front, such as “this is where they made rice paper”. However we weren’t told what the rice paper was for, why they made it etc. it was the same story for every part of the tour unfortunately. Even during the stop where you can fire a gun, there was no information about why the gun was relevant etc. very very basic throughout and genuinely feel that all the information we learned we gathered ourselves by listening to other tour guides around the site at different times as we walked past them. I put this disappointment to the provider and requested a 75% refund to take into account the travel costs they incurred. Unfortunately this was rejected without a response.

the story of how and why tunnel was done , and the actual experience of going into Tunnel was great. The Guide was excellent, funny and well mannered. Viator tour is exceptionally value for money. recommend 100% viator tour only. Hotel pick up, explanation and history on the way, a stop by for rest room and a souvenir shopping, then to tunnel and back, about 6 hours. 12.35 afternoon tour was just perfect for us in a luxury Bus of about 22 people. thank you viator.

Seeing how the Vietcong lived for over twenty years in the tunnels was mind boggling. Van (our guide) was very knowledgeable with a couple of jokes along the way. We felt very immersed in the experience- the tapioca tasting seemed not to be to everyone’s taste but we loved it. We went on the 13th July 2022 and would highly recommend it if you are in Saigon

From start to finish this tour was exceptional and it helped having Fa as our tour guide. He had a heap of knowledge that I didn’t know prior to the visit and was very personable and professional. Overall an unforgettable experience

It was ok. Private for better experience
Elias_P
, Jul 2022
The guide and Cu Chi Tunnels were ok, but the bus was terrible. I am 1.81 m tall for reference, the seats were so cramped up and tight my knees and legs were hurting. The journey is a good 1 hours and 45 minutes so pay extra to go on a private tour. Not worth it. By the end I was so frustrated and annoyed, I just couldn't wait to get off the bus. Also the fact that I had a loud non stop talking family on the way who were arguing about money at some point did not help. Go private people.
