Really enjoyed the day tour even if the time on the bus was quite long it was comfortable mini bus and enjoyed taking in the views on the journey. Quenie - our guide for the day was excellent, spoke good English and kept us well informed during the tour. We loved the canoe boat ride along the narrow canals.

Our tour guide Than was very friendly and knowledgeable . My husband enjoyed the experience of being able to fire an AK-47. I did feel as though we were rushed through the whole experience. We were the only people on this tour, perhaps if we had other people with us things may have progressed at a slower pace.

This was my second visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels and my wife's first visit - we both really loved this trip, Truong was our guide and he really had lots of knowledge to share with the group. Visiting a local farming family was an eye opening experience. Make sure that you take plenty of water with you, as you will have a busy time. Would highly recommend this trip.
