We went on the morning boat tour to Cu Chi tunnels with our guide. She was incredibly knowledgeable about everything to do with the river and the tunnels. Super bubbly personality and very funny! Boat ride was lovely with food and drinks on board - much better than being stuck in a bus! After the tour around the tunnels we had a really yummy lunch before boating back to the city. Overall great experience and definitely a great way to see the area!

We took the Cu Chi Tunnels and Countryside Tour by Luxury Speedboat and van in early April on the second day of our family holiday to Vietnam. This was a fantastic trip which was enjoyed by every member of the family and was great value for money. It was so easy to book (directly) and sales staff's communication was excellent. I had kept the speedboat element as a surprise for our two children (aged 10 and 6) and it blew them away. Best way to get to the tunnels! Breakfast rolls and cold drinks were served on the boat. The tunnel experience was very good. Really informative and interactive. We were all grateful to be there earlier that the mass crowds. When we arrived the car park was empty, when we left it was overflowing. Lunch was served at the tunnels before we left. it was delicious and plentiful. The countryside experience on the way back to Ho Chi Minh broke the journey up perfectly. The cricket snack stop will never be forgotten! Our guide was amazing. Kind, knowledgeable, informative and fun. We all loved him and he really was part of what made the experience so memorable. We would highly recommend this experience to other families.

We booked this tour on a whim the day before we arrived in Ho Chi Minh City. They had spaces available and booking/paying was straightforward. On the day we were picked up on time and the guide Duke was funny and informative the whole day. Having had family fighting on both sides of the war his insight was incredible, but he could lighten the mood with a quick joke. We had a great Vietnamese lunch before heading back to Ho Chi Minh. We asked to be dropped at the Reunification Palace instead of our hotel on the return trip and they happily obliged. Would recommend to any visitors, young or old.

Hang was our guide. She has had a smile on her face from start to finish. She knew a lot and full of passion about the Cu Chi Tunnels. We choosed option: arriving by speedboat and back by van. Very fast transport, you are at your destination in 1 hour and 15 minutes. In the morning they also arranged coffee, sandwiches and fruit. This tour is highly recommended.
