This was a very interesting tour. I found the actual tour itself very pro Viet Cong and anti-American, when it came to the war, but our tour guide out to the tunnels was not biased at all. The Vietnamese government loves us as tourists but be prepared to be filled with propaganda at the official war sites and museums.
The trip was educational but it was lacking in depth. Too many tour groups were there and we were in a bit of a hurry since other groups are waiting for us to finish in every part. It would have been better if the tour included the living areas of the Viet Congs in the tunnels at that time. Our guide's English was difficult to understand but very energetic nonetheless. Overall, this small group tour is way better than other tours which are big in size and it is reasonably priced. I would still recommend this tour and hopefully the guides in the future will speak better English.
there were 5 couple who went on this tour so that makes us 10 which is nice coz it's a small group. the tour guide talks a lot the whole trip on the way to Cu Chi. He is very informative too. The tunnel didn't impress me much coz I saw Japanese tunnels before so it's okay. Not really exceed my expectation.
This tour is a must do and a very good deal. The tunnels were interesting and informative. The guides were great. They picked me up within the time frame provided and answered all questions. They took photos for the group and showed us all the spots. The lunch we ate afterwards was delicious.
A good day that's well worth doing. We found the half-day was a good amount of time although we don't know what a full day would involve. I've never taken much interest in wars or history but I really enjoyed doing this tour. I think if you're going to travel through a country then its good to know a bit about what its built on. It helps explain a lot about the way people are and the way they live. Great day with a good guide.
Our guide Ray was very passionate about his job and did a wonderful guiding - just a pitty We could'nt understand 50 of it due to his vietnamese - english accent. It's a Long tour to be in when you have to specify every sentence 2-3 times. Still it would'nt be the same without a guide to tell you the story. If the guides can work more on theire english It would definitely be a recommanded tour.
