We really enjoy this activity !! Maybe one of the best one in Vietnam that we made Pick-up from hotel was on time and the guide Ettie was perfect for this tour, he knows everything about the war and tunnels so you have full information. We visited all the area around tunnels and the traps also you can try many guns on the site and after you go inside tunnels for 20/40 or 60 metres underground ! And back to hotel

Everything was ok - but the trip and the activities were characterized by being a tourist magnet. There were an unusual number of tourists at the Cu Chi tunnels and the delta trip was a jumble of boats criss-crossing the short stretch of swampy delta.

Great tour. Super informative and really fun! Mostly thanks to our guide Vinh who was super energetic and the friendliest person we met on our trip. Highly recommend booking with these guys for an unforgettable tour through Cu Chi.

The whole trip was fantastic - a wonderful way to experience Vietnamese culture! Our tour guide Ben, was excellent - really enthusiastic and friendly. Very happy with my experience :)
