Good trip
This was a good trip with a knowledgeable guide. He was able to give us lots of history and provided extra information. I found I had mixed emotions at the tunnels as I found seeing some of the killing apparatus interesting but gory. I didn’t like the idea of paying to get to shoot guns either.
The tour of the city was excellent and also thought provoking as you get to see the effects of the war and agent orange. If this day doesn’t make you think twice about war, nothing will.
Highly recommended

Dec. 2019
We visited the Ch Chi tunnels with Ben. Ben was very good: funny and informative, with excellent English. The tunnels are great to experience and interesting to learn about.

No one in our group used the shooting range. We instead had fun crawling through the narrow tunnel.

Worthwhile and interesting trip
We had a great day at the Cu Chi tunnels. Our guide Ben was very knowledgeable and put a lot of humour into his descriptions and stories. The tunnels are a fascinating look into how the Viet Cong fought the war and for anyone daring enough, the experience of climbing into and crawling through the tunnels is one I won't forget.

Mix feelings
Nov. 2019
I took a tour with TNK tours with Moon. Started off at the War Museum which was interesting and sad. The central Post Office was design by Eiffel with iron work shows in the ceiling. Notre Dame Cathedral was closed for renovation. The Independence Palace was disappointing...Mr Moon didn't even cover the tanks out front that crash the gates..... it is hot inside and no air. Mr Moon start was giving derogatory remarks about Americans. I was quite shocked. Once we got to Cu Chi Tunnels..... All I got was more derogatory remarks.. it was a totally messed up the tour.

Cu chi tunnels with Ben
Nov. 2019 • Friends
We really enjoyed the visit to the tunnels. Though busy and clearly a very popular tourist attraction, it was staggering to get a sense of the incredible war effort of the Viet Cong.

Ben was a friendly guide, who spoke very good English, and enthusiastically encouraged us to leave him a review at the end of the trip. A bit more of a basic primer on the war would have been good ahead of the visit to the tunnels, though.

Great tour!!
Oct. 2019
The tour was very well organised and Theo was a great guide. He is very knowledgeable, not only about his country but he was also able to engage with each of the participants of the tour. He made a tour very informative and enjoyable. The driver Nghia was always when we needed him, waiting with the cool car for us. I highly recommend this tour!
