Cu Chi Tunnels were the highlight of this combined tour. Absolutely fascinating although our guide took us through at a very fast pace. Opportunity to fire off live rounds of an AK47 not to be missed ! Afternoon tour of the Mekong Delta was interesting but a bit overly focused on being taken to factory/retail outlets. Limo was good, much better than a coach particularly given the long drive - which traffic wise was a bit hairy at times.
There was only 5 of us but we were rushed. The guide did not provide time for picture taking. Either you take pictures or lose the guide's commentary. Cu Chi Tunnels was very interesting and well worth it. I felt there was more to the experience but the time spent here was cut short.The Mekong Delta boat ride was fun but there was nothing especial on the walking part of the village which took quite a lot of the time.
First off, I'd like to say that we had the most amazing guide. Vu was a super awesome guide! She's knowledgeable, upbeat and so funny!The trip was well planned. Chu Chi tunnels are a work of art and a must visit. After the tunnels we went to the Mekong delta where we experienced the local culture, food, fruits, and local industries. The van was very comfortable. All in all, a day well spent!A big shout out to Vu once again! All the best!
This is how I want to tour every city now! Super comfortable and ice cold!! Tour guide was very knowledgeable. The Cu Chi Tunnels was very interesting. I learned a lot here. It's very humbling and scary to learn about the war methods used. The tunnels itself...I had to do a lot of self talk to get me through just 30m. hahaha... Great experience, but didn't like the mandated government propaganda that we had to watch though before entering. Lunch....was good. Not the best...but sufficient. The Mekong Delta was interesting...from the boat ride to the coconut island...was great. The raft ride through the river ..I did not like. The water was filthy..there were open sewers that filtered into the water and floating trash everywhere. In my opinion, this is a major tourist attraction, they must clean this up!
