  • This is a must see when we come to Ho chi ming city, We know more about the history of vietnam in war time I don't like the trap because it is too dangerous and evil but I think that they made it to p...  more »

  • I have a nice trip here by motorbike, fairly enthusiastic tour guide, is really a place to for the domestic as well as foreign friends to visit. Just one thing, you should prepare more water for the trip because of the pretty hot and sweat more (because walking and in the basement).

  • Superb place. Worth seeing all the tunnels and real war equipment. Great insight in to what goes on with a war , its just not shooting!!
  • Great place for a history lesson and to see how ingenious the VC were. The tour could have been a bit better. The equipment used for the film show was old and the audio was terrible. They could improve it vastly by just upgrading to digital instead of the scratchy old VHS.
  • Didn't know what to expect, very informative. Lots of people but well organised small groups.
  • I recommend going with a tour, like Vietnam adventure tour, because they organise transport there and back and provide stories of each part. You can also go inside the tunnels but it's very small, you cannot stand and have to crawl. It can be for a long time. You can also shoot an ak 47, it's about 5 USD for 5 bullets. While you are going through the tour you can hear the ak 47 going off all the time, which makes it more realistic. Imagine if they added mortars that would have been crazy.
  • Amazing experience visiting the tunnels, looking at how they lived under ground and even fired an AK-47 done the range. Would definitely recommend!
