The Cu Chi tunnels tour we did was excellent, made even better by our guide Alex who was funny, extremely knowledgeable and also able to offer some personal perspective and insight into the tragedies of the war and the impact it has had on all involved. Highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn more about this period in history and definitely bring some extra money for lunch because the Pho place we stopped at was amazing!

We did the 'Luxury Group Tour' and had a great time with Jason and his 'Superstar Service'! The tour goes to the quieter and more authentic stretch of tunnels - other than a couple of other tour groups moving through there were not many others around which meant we could enjoy the tour in relative peace. The tunnels were very interesting and seeing the bomb craters on either side of the path was a fascinating but chilling reminder of the past. You can choose to go through different lengths of tunnels - some shorter some are longer - so you can pick depending on how tired you are feeling etc. I managed it being 6'3 but was quite exhausted by the end! Fascinating experience and our guide Jason really brought it to life.
