Cu Chi Tunnels with Tan ( what a legend !)
Mar 2020
We had a superb visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels. They are a 90 minute bus trip northwest of Ho Chi Minh City. Tan was fantastic from start to finish. He gave a superb and fascinating background en route to the tunnels, and was a great guide as we discovered everything at the location. Thanks Tan !

Great Day with our Urban Adventures guide, THUONGVU. Great information, friendly guide. Opportunities to go into different length tunnels or just observe. Traps on display and a shooting range which has fixed weapons and you pay a little. A must do whilst in south Vietnam. About an hour and a bit from Ho Chi Minh City.

tunnel tour with Johnny
We weren't really sure if we were going on this tour but are really glad that we did! Johnny was our guide and he was excellent. He gave us a really good overview of the Cu Chi tunnels and the history, as well as answered all of our questions. He was also excellent to talk to about local life and culture and Ho Chi Minh City and in Vietnam in general. Highly recommend this tour and if possible grab Johnny as a guide!
