  • Perhaps one of the most must-see attractions in your trip to Viet Nam. This place is fantastic! Here you can see the structure of the guerrillas of Viet Nam. All very interesting. Prepare the site is hot, tropical, humid climate. Use mosquito repellent.

  • In view of the great history of war in this country, go to Viet Nam and not visit the complex of tunnels, is almost like going to Paris and not visit the Louvre or the Eiffel Tower, to Rome and not seeing the Pope. It's an unforgettable ride with great learning about history and the war. Our guide was very thorough, saw in him a great pleasure to show this was the great feat that saved them from death.

  • A great place to learn that Vietnamese people are amazing, they have brilliant strategy, strong will and discipline. This is not a place designed for you to have fun, it's a place to help you learn.. what you hear about Vietnam war is not always true. This place teach lessons of life and you can really feel that this is just happened like yesterday. I come back with sad feeling, but it's a need for you to see this real thing happened.
  • Enjoyed this. We were one of many tour groups but our guide was good. The tunnels were very claustrophobic and I secretly enjoyed seeing others freak out 😈 didn't really enjoy having a snack at the shooting range.
  • We did the river tour to get to the Cu Chi tunnels and it was phenomenal. Really eye opening experience but had a lot of propaganda. Must do while in Ho Chi Minh.
  • I could feel the pain of war.
  • Very nice place to visit, that can know more about their history and war information. There are gun shooting area, but I think it is too expensive. (Bcos each bullet cost around $35000 dong, and u need to but at least 10. Especially if u been to Cambodia or Thailand... the bullets won't cost that much) The guide very friendly and humour.
