Come to Củ Chi!
Apr. 2021 • Couples
Going through the tunnels was so incredible! (Of course, they were made slightly bigger for foreigners, but wow, I emerged with even greater respect for the people who had to endure living and navigating those tunnels during the war.) Also, seeing my 6'4" (1m93cm) tall husband disappear into jungle floor through a secret entrance was just amazing! Our tour guide, Tuấn, was so insightful and told us about his many experiences in the war! Our driver, Hoàng, was great, too, he stopped to give us refreshments along the way, too. If you're in HCMC, you need to come to the Củ Chi tunnels!

Must see
We knew we wanted to go see the tunnels, but we were unsure on commiting to a long day with other people in our group that we didn't know. We booked last minute with Jun (+84 0967622016), and it was the best we could have asked made. He picked us up at our hotel in District 1, and gave the best history lesson we have ever had on the drive to the tunnels. His father fought for the Saigon army during the war. Along the way, he had the driver stop to show us a field of rubber tree plants brought to Vietnam by the French. Once we arrived at the tunnels it was such an interesting experience. His english was perfect, and he definitely made sure to include our children in the experience. Make sure to bring money so that you can fire one of the many weapons at the range (10,000 VND per bullet). Words can't describe the tunnels; you just have to experience it yourself. Just an incredible day.

We were very fortunate to have Mr. Trong as our driver and Mr. Tuan as our guide. Mr. Tuan's perspective of the war and the history of the area in particular was very interesting to hear. He had all kinds of stories and was open to our many questions. Highly recommend!

Perfecto
Mar. 2021
I've been in Vietnam 6 years and never went to the tunnels because I hate crowds and feeling like I'm herded like sheep. Now's the perfect time to go because there was only 4 other people there. We really had the place to ourselves. My boyfriend and I just finished a tour with Tom / Toan and it was simply excellent. Tom was very charming and knowledgeable. It's clear that he loves to share this experience with tourists. Highly recommend. We were surprised by how good of a time we had.

Tunnels with Betty
Mar. 2020
We did this tour in March 2020 with corona virus looming over the city. Our tour guide, Betty was amazing & so helpful letting us know how to navigate the site with the restrictions. She was bright & bubbly all day. Very informative and she was able to explain all the details about life in the tunnels and show us lots examples. The tunnels were not busy on the day we visited and we had plenty of time to so everything we wanted.

Excellent tunnel tour
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We went to the tunnels with pick up from our hotel (in district 1) with our tour guide Sally. She was amazing! She is so knowledgeable and her english was perfect. The pace of tour and the amount of tunnel we saw was great. I even enjoyed the rest area stop where we learned about the lacquer art made by victims of agent orange. It was a nice stop to break up the drive. We chose the further tunnels (less tourists) and I would chose that option again. Sally definitely added so much value to our tour, if you can request her, she comes highly recommended!
