How the war was won
Feb 2021
My wife and I used Asiana Link Travels and opted for the morning tour in Feb 2020. We paid 1.1million dong (around £38) for the two of us. Our guide Tri (pronounced tree) was very helpful and spoke very good English. On the way we stopped at a factory where disabled people made lacquered gifts. The process was explained and the various items were most impressive.
We continued on to the tunnels and Tri explained how the Viet Cong survived in the network of tunnels and the ingenious ways they avoided the US and allied troops. There was an option to pay extra to fire live rounds at the firing range from different weapons. Next to the firing range was a good sized cafe. We were surprised that the cafe had been placed right next to the firing range as it was LOUD.
We were then given the chance to go down one of the tunnels at no extra charge. We had the option of doing 20, 40, 100 or 160 metres. After 20 metres my wife and I had had enough. I am not the slimmest person and I found it too hot down there. However, one of our group did the full 160! He took so long the guide was about to go and find him (in case he’d taken the wrong turn and was heading for Cambodia), but he came out saying he’d been taking selfies! After the visit there was the option to go to a restaurant for lunch (included in the price) or return to your hotel. I would recommend Asiana Link Travels as the guide was friendly and informative not only about the tunnels, but also life in modern day Saigon.

Going through the Tunnel as a Vietnam Veteran
May 2020
We had an Excellent guide and it proved an interesting experience for a Vietnam Veteran. I knew of the Tunnels from IR's but did not encounter a tunnel during the war.

Great experience, history lesson. My kids even enjoyed it, very busy. If claustrophobic, make sure you don’t get stuck in the back of a lot of old or overweight people when you go in the tunnels, as you’ll be stuck in there a while , not moving . It’s very tight squeeze ( I’m 5, 6 , 50kg)

Book a tour with Nguyen Cong Tuan!
Jan 2020 • Couples
Nguyen Cong Tuan was the best tour guide ever!!! A war veteran who had amazing stories to tell. An experience that brought tears to everyone’s eyes. He’s a 72 year old full of energy and humor! I don’t think we would have loved the tour as much as we did had he not been our guide. I hope he can give more tours post-pandemic. *We went May 2019*

Remembering the Vietnam War ...
Jan 2020
So much has already been written here about the historic "Cu Chi Tunnels"! It is certainly a must see attraction to all those visiting legendary Saigon, due to its important role in the Vietnam War. It is interesting, but too scenographic, due to restoration works and accessibility necessities. Some parts are quite uncomfortable for tall visitors. Sore legs in the next morning! Enjoy!

WOW SO HISTORICAL
Oct 2020 • Friends
All I can say is that my visit to Vietnam was certainly not useless. I was astonished by how clever the Vietnamese were. I learnt so much by this one scenario/trip with my friends. I was so curious about what I saw. I was kind of oblivious by the bugs that were there but thy were harmless throughout the trip. Not only that, there is a gun sight near by. I had never used a gun in my own country, I was so amazed and pleasentful by this activity. Vietnam is so underated! I came from India to learn more about how the Vietnamese defeated the foreigners. Thank you for this lovely experience. Special thanks to the tour guide, they were explaining so thoroughly!

Essential visit for visitors to Saigon
Dec 2019
Great trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Although this was called a "Half day" trip, we left at 8:30am and returned after 4pm, so it was really more of a full day, in case you're planning another activity after.

There are two sets of restored tunnels and I went to the standard ones - I didn't elect these but I hear the other set has improved accessibility.

The tunnels themselves were very interesting. Of course, effort has gone into the restoration/construction of the site and it's a bit of a conveyor belt but the whole point is to experience what it was like and learn more about the history and this you certainly get to do. Our guide was friendly and informative.

There was a stop at a factory making crafts, this dragged the day out longer than necessary, but overall it was a good day out and an essential part of any Saigon itinerary.
