this is a great attraction to visit. the person working the area will explain all about these tunnels and you can climb through them. See how they lived underground with hospital and food prep areas. See the tanks and tools of war. fire a M60 or M16. See the traps built in the combat zones.

I really enjoyed my tour to the Cu Chi tunnels with our guide for the day Lan. The tour itself was very interesting and enjoyable and is a must if you are visiting Saigon. The day itself was enhanced by Lan our guide who had a wealth of information and history about the Cu Chi tunnels. 5 stars!

If you come to Vietnam you need to come to Cu Chi to tick the box, it is a short run from Saigon and there are many trip options based on your budget, get a good one to miss the stops at shops selling tourist tut. The tunnel histories are interesting, but not for those of a large dimension (height or weight) - you can also go to the firing range and shoot AK-47's / M-16's and other military weapons used during the conflict, but its an expensive activity - but for those that will never come into contact with these types of weapons, you can tick the box, half a day is plenty, once you have wandered through one dark tunnel you have pretty much gotten the idea - just watch for snakes and scorpions sunbathing around the area, we saw a number on the day of our visit.

As part of a 12 night Vietnam trip to 5 cities plus a Halong Bay cruise, we stayed 2 nights in Saigon. Cu Chi tunnels were extremely interesting but my favorite part was at the end of the tour, we visited the shooting range. I duck hunter as a kid but I have never shot a rifle never mind a machine gun. I bought 10 rounds each for an M-30 and M-60 machine guns for about $50. It was truly amazing. The M-30 felt like shooting a cannon not a machine gun and the M-60 was even bigger. It was the highlight of the tour and well worth it. We really didn't like Saigon because it is just a big city. If we were to come back, I would stay closer to Cu Chi tunnels and Saigon river and not visit Saigon.

The drive to the tunnels was very smooth and the driver was super friendly. We had Van as our tour guide and she was great. Very informative and she made the whole trip even better than it already was. Definitely recommend this trip.

A fascinating insight into man’s ingenuity, guerrilla warfare and the cruelty of war.
Get there early to beat the coach load of visitors. About an hour and 20 mins out of HCMC. Preferably go with a private tour guide for best experience. Unbelievable to see how these tunnels were dug out and how they were operated. Worth finding the courage to enter the tunnels. Once you have gone through the shortest it is easier to venture further. Guides very reassuring as the tunnels are tiny. You can actually shoot live ammunition from a variety of serious Vietnam War guns if that appeals at the shooting range. Very weird!

A little overrated and it takes almost a full day.

We arrived at our tour agency (vietnam adventure tours) at 8am as instructed and the bus left 5 minutes later. We spent the next 45 minutes driving around and picking up more passengers, making about 10 stops. And these stops were all within 5-10 minute walking distance to agency. After 45 minutes, we headed north out of town, driving right past where we started.

It was Saturday but there was still traffic heading out of town. We stopped for about 20 minutes at a rest stop which was really aimed for us to buy souvenirs.

We finally arrived at the tunnels 2:40 minutes after I first boarded the bus. The tour itself was ok but being in a large group (24 people) made the tour less enjoyable and slow. We spent 2.5 hours there, including wasting 15 minutes on a horrible film. In a small group, the tour could probably only take 1-1.5 hours. The drive back was another 1.5 hours.

In total, I spent 4.5 hours on bus and 2.5 hours at the site, which really should’ve been only 1.5 hours max.
