  • 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!
