Travelling to the Cu Chi tunnels via speedboat was very enjoyable, and half the time it would take to go via minibus! Our tour guide was very knowledgable and welcoming and we felt very well looked after - Breakfast, lunch, fruit and drinks were all supplied! I would really recommend this trip to anybody. Departing at 7am meant we were one of the first groups to arrive at Cu Chi and we’re dropped back at our hotel for 1pm

The driver was on time. The speedboat was comfortable, the refreshments just right, and the trips up and down the river very calm. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the various landmarks we passed, as well as the Cu Chi tunnels. The lunch was delicious. I'd recommend this tour for a relaxing, informative, and fun half-day.
