    Cu Chi Tunnels
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Situated 40 km away from Ho Chi Minh City, the Cu Chi tunnels consist of a vast and ingenious network of underground tunnels connecting living and cooking areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers but also hundreds of trap doors, that played a strategic role in the resistance of the Viet Cong soldiers during the war, helping them to control a large rural area around Ho Chi Minh City.

We took the half Day tour of the Cu Chi tunnels with a stop over at a an arts factory which manufactures artworks from egg shells. We enjoyed the tour from the moment we stepped into the bus. Jun the tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the places we went to and shared very amusing anecdotes. The tour at the tunnels needs moderate physical exertion because of the walking required specially if you Will enter the tunnels. Aside from the tunnels, there is an exhibit on the traps devised by the Vietcong during the war which was certainly quite shocking. The tour gave us a glimpse of jungle life of the vietcong like what they ate and how they cooked and dealt with Daily living while they were being pursued by U.S. forces. It was a very enjoyable tour but be prepared for some walking and to get some dirt in the activity!

Jason our tour guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and very caring. All the parts of the day trip were well organised with good selection of boats, tuk tuks,mangrove boat,other stops and the restaurant for lunch. It was a very enjoyable day and worth the effort of the 2 he drive each way.

Amazing Guide, Informative Tour!
I actually visited in February 2019, however due to travelling all over the world for the last 12 months, I am just in the process of writing all the reviews. We booked this tour through our hotel the day before. We were able to pay in dollars and get on the tour leaving the next day which was ideal. The bus arrived on time and our tour guide was brilliant from start to finish. During the drive to the tunnels, he told us about the history of Vietnam and also modern day facts and sights. He had a wealth of knowledge, spoke really good English and was very friendly!

Before arriving at the tunnels, we visited the An Ha Handicapped Handicraft workshop which supports those suffering from 3rd and 4th generation effects of the Agent Orange chemical weapon used during the war. We took a short tour of the workshop and bought a souvenir from the gift shop which is a donation to help the workers.

When we arrived at the tunnels, we watched a short video about them before our guide walked us around the area. Our tour group only consisted of 5 people which was brilliant as we weren’t rushed and always had opportunities to ask questions. We saw where bombs were made, saw how the Vietnamese soldiers and their families lived, where uniforms and equipment was made and even visited a firing range where we were able to shoot an AK47! We had the opportunity to crawl through the tunnels which have been widened by 40% for Western tourists to fit through, however they are still a little tight if you’re claustrophobic. We tried Tapioca which was used as medicine back then and learned all about the way of life during the war. Our guide also told us the difference between North and South Vietnam including those who are for and against the communist government.

It was a fabulous tour from start to finish and I would highly recommend it as a must do in Vietnam. Even on the ride back to the city, our guide filled us with more information and we even travelled down the road where the famous photo of Vietnamese Kim was taken. I thoroughly enjoyed my time on this tour, it is well worth the money for only $28 each!

Booked this tour last minute based on the reviews here on TripAdvisor. The experience fell short of my expectations. The tour guide was soft-spoken and when combined with her average English, sometimes we could not understand her. We saw other groups and observed that we understood other tour guides better and they were also more informative.

Our guide Jun picked us up from hotel and we made our way to the tunnel site we just stopped briefly at a charity workshop to get shown around also to have a small break then we continued .We arrived at the tunnel site and had the tour with plenty of time to look at everything ,we where not rushed ,Jun was very informative explained the traps ,Tunnels, way of life in detail everything we needed to know and more,also had fun at the shooting range going through the tunnels in 20m lengths and your able to travel further underground if you wished. We all had a great time the tour was Excellent ,your able to buy food and have lunch and souvenirs,, on the day we were there it was not crowded at all im sure that helped us with room to move ,Jun was a top guide and recommend his service we had 3 in our group and happy we choose this tour at a higher cost to get this personal type of service.

Cu Chi Tunnels
Had an outstanding experience with my guide Jack. Man the driver was excellent. Jack was great because he was informative but also conscious of what I wanted to see. He made the trip fly by time wise and was engaging. If you ate in Saigon I strongly recommend you use this company and ask for Jack.

I booked a group trip to the tunnels with Ginkgo Voyage through my hotel, Windsor Plaza. Jun was an excellent tour guide...very knowledgeable about the city, tunnels, and their history. He was also funny and seemed sincere in his mission to make sure tour members had a great time. Definitely recommend!
