Great experience
May 2019
We did a private tour for the 4 of us and Anthony was very accommodating.

His emails were prompt, the terms were clear, and everything went exactly as promised.

What you can expect:

- A great boat trip up the river. Nice views, no traffic, and great service
- Good snacks and an attentive crew (love the fresh fruit)
- Very nice English speaking guides
- Prompt pick-up at your hotel
- An informative Cu Chi guided tour
- You may meet Anthony in person (he came to the launch to see us off)

The Cu Chi tour was amazing. So much history and it was great to hear the Vietnamese perspective from our guide. The boat trip alone is worth the money!

Thanks Anthony....it was great

Excellent trip
Mar 2020
Took this trip to Cu Chi Tunnels by speedboat and is definitely the only way to do it, our guide said it takes over two hours on the bus. We were on boat for about an hour and a quarter each way and was quite exilerating speeding past other river traffic through the green water lilly type vegetation on river surface. You even get chance to sit up front to get some great photos. Nice and cool too with breeze provided by speed. Well worth trying. Recommended!

Mr Chi was the most friendly and knowledgeable guide we could have asked for. Taking the motor boat to the tunnels is the best way to go! Skip the traffic and enjoy the scenery along the river. Top marks for this tour.

Worth every single penny (or vietnamese dong)
Mar 2020
It was a wonderful tour and worth the money without any compliants. The tourguide spoke a really good englisch, he was funny and very open minded. They comfort you with really good food at the beginng and for lunch, you get everything you need. It was everything really relaxed and no hustle. We felt very welcomed and comfortable. The really did take care of the costumers. I highly recommend to go by boat instead of bus. This way also the jorney itself its worth going.

Great way to visit the tunnels
Mar 2020
The tour of the tunnels was really interesting but you can read plenty of reviews of that elsewhere. What we felt made this particular tour worthwhile was the speedboat ride to the tunnels and the guide. The speedboat ride takes an hour and it seems a much more entertaining way to get to the tunnels rather than being stuck in traffic.Also if you go on the morning tour the speedboat seems to get you to the tunnels ahead of the coach trips, it was nice and quiet when we arrived. Also the timings fitted well starting with a light fruit breakfast and finishing with lunch after the tour. Our guide was very entertaining and very informative having picked up a fair bit of English from watching Only Fools & Horses. Nice to get a Vietnamese perspective of the war and its consequences.

Amazing day
Pickup from hotel was on time, no messing around. Our tour guide Jack spoke perfect English.

We had a small group, 3 couples and it was perfect number of people.

The speed boat was worth the money alone, best way to get there. Don’t bother with roads, will take hours with traffic.

The tour/museum was great. Crawling through the tunnels and firing a gun was awesome.

Great to learn about how the tunnels were used and the part they played in the way. Fascinating if not a little sad.

Excellent trip
Excellent trip, transportation by boat was the best way. Got there before the coaches, so tunnels were quiet. Our guide spoke very good English and he was very informative about the history of the war. Lunch was also very good. Would highly recommend this tour.

History, people power and a great boat ride!
My partner and I did this trip. Everything was superb from start to finish. Pick up times were punctual, the boat ride was worth the cost by itself. When we got to the tunnels it was both fascinating and almost unbelievable what the people of this area did in the struggle.
Our guide was helpful and very kind and took time to answer any questions. The lunch was enormous and very tasty. All the people were friendly and attentive for this company. Do yourself a big favour and take this “must do” tour. We also got to fire an AK47 which was a very interesting!

Amazing Day Trip
Feb 2020
We LOVED our day spent with Moon at the Cu Chi Tunnels. Fruit and pastries were served on the boat ride and we found the ride to be fun as well. The tunnels were informative and interactive without being too much - well balanced day for sure. Whenever there is a group lunch, the food can often be overwhelming but this was not the case. We really enjoyed our lunch as well as the other people we met. A trip to Saigon would not be complete without seeing the Cu Chi Tunnels and we were so glad we chose this tour company!
