  • Excellent tour MadelineWu

Excellent tour

This was an excellent and well-organized tour, with private airport transfer and knowledgeable tour guides for the day tours. Min, the local organizer contact for the whole tour was helpful and friendly, having moved my Cu Chi Tunnels tour to another day without fuss due to flight delay issues. She was easy to contact via WhatsApp and gave suggestions of places to go. The highlight of this trip was the Cu Chi Tunnels day tour, with tour guide Tim. There is also a shooting range there for people who want to try (minimum 600k dong). The city tour of Independence Palace, War Remnants Museum, etc was also good, learned more about Vietnam’s history. The accommodation was at Le Duy Hotel, decent location, and comfortable room. Overall, very happy with the tour!

Cu Chi Tunnels review

Had an excellent time on this tour. The Cu Chi tunnels was something I'd wanted to see for some time, and it was well worth it. Our tour guide, Huu Dung, was fantastic, and added hugely to the experience with his in-depth knowledge and humour. Would highly recommend.

  • A Fascinating Glimpse info History Josephine Dutch

A Fascinating Glimpse info History

Our cheerful and knowledgeable guide Katie made a wet trip up the Saigon River a wonderful experience. We saw Vietnamese life along the river, which was a nice break from hot and smog-choked Ho Chi Minh City. As a history buff I loved the tour of the Cu Chi tunnels. I got to shoot an M16 and crawl through the amazing tunnel complex that protected the Viet Congress during the long and terrible war. Katie was an excellent guide throughout. A fun way to spend a Sunday in the country if the country happens to be Vietnam. And the captain of our boat was awesome piloting in the rain. Well done!

  • Long long street, just walking Yeow Su Ann

Long long street, just walking

Before I reached the street, I can heard noises of crowd. When Google Map said I have arrived, there are really many people. Overall, the street is just a street with nothing on the street. People just walk around. There are shopping malls and restaurants on both sides of the streets. Many locals dressed up as cartoon and even coloured themselves as gold silver men. Their intention is to get tourists pay them for taking photos. One end of the street is a river while the other end is People's Committee of Ho Chi Minh City (found on Google Map). The building itself is very French, beautiful. At this end, Parkson and Vincom Center are nearby. Overall, locals just walk around and hanging out, even sitting on floor. They just gather up. Other than walking, there is nothing else to do.
