The tour bus picked us up from our hotel on time in an air conditioned vehicle. Once we arrived at the tunnels our guide Tuan explained everything in detail - he had some amazing stories since he was an Officer in the war, and it was a privilege to take the tour with someone who experienced the war first hand. I’m so pleased to have learnt about the tunnels whilst in Vietnam and can recommend this company.

Excellent vehicle, guide, food, service and value for money made this a wonderful experience for all. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Really enjoyable day out. Viet, our tour guide was chatty and knowledgeable. Very comfy transport to the tunnels and river too.
