Visiting Cu Chi tunnels was a great experience. The Cao Dai temple is also worth to visit. The guide (Tina) was very good - great stories and funny! Quality of the bus was average and taking the option with lunch was not the best idea (we were served less and worse food than people who ordered food on their own!)

This tour was amazing and well organized. The temple was so beautiful, lunch was fantastic and the tunnels were so very interesting to hear about. The tunnels were hard to crawl in. You have to be somewhat in shape to take part. Tour guide Tam was knowledgeable and his English was good. We really enjoyed chatting with him.

We first visited a shop were people with disabilities create art, then we went to Cao Dai Temple and spent the right amount of time to see part of the ceremony and walk around the area and walk inside the temple. Then we went to a delicious restaurant, the price already included this which was a wonderful surprise because I wasn't expecting it and it was delicious! Finally we went to Cu Chi Tunnels, got to see everything we needed with great info from the tour guide.
