  • An absolute must visit! These tunnels tell an amazing story that too often is not shared or known around the world. Put one day aside for this and book a tour around the Cu Chi Tunnels.  more »

  • 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.
