The driver and guide picked us up at our hotel at 7.30 AM. The trip to the tunnels took us almost two hours and there was not much to see along the way. But the tunnels made the visit very worthwhile.If you crawl through the narrow tunnels, you realize what the war has meant for many Vietnamese.I barely fit into the manhole and when the lid was put on it got terribly dark. It was a scary ..More

By visiting Cu Chi Tunnels, we learned so much about the Vietnam war. We understood so much about the resilience and intelligence of the Vietnamese people. We couldn’t believe how small the tunnels were and found it incredibly difficult being so enclosed underground. Would definitely recommend visiting.

We started the tour with Cu Chi Tunnels. This was an excellent area showing the history of the Vietnam war. Our tour guide was very informative, knowledgeable and explained everything. We stopped at the firing range and had a few rounds on the M30, M16 & AK47 which was a fantastic. We were here for about 2 hours all told and that’s plenty of time for an unhurried visit. Recommended!
