Very well organised tour, excellent way to see key things in one day. Great stories too and tour guide was great! As the other reviews say, there wasn’t really enough time at the war remnants museum but we didn’t mind that as we got a feel for it and went back to spend some more time there the next day. Overall it was a long but very enjoyable day and really enjoyed seeing everything and hearing the stories. Our guide Tom was very funny and kept us all entertained

Time was too short for all that we planned for this trip, but guide Ryan did an excellent job to work with an oversized crowd. He kept everyone interested, focused an on time to bring the huge group back to HCMC after an 11 hour day. 1 hour at the War Remnants Museum is absolutely not enough. but we knew this before and plan to go back another day. Cu Chi is quite a long drive, but indeed a must see. Huge crowds at Cu Chi as well on Dec-25; may be this is a place to go back to in a private tour and visit another location where tour busses can’t or simply don’t go!?

This tour was amazing! Xuan was unbelievable and she provided us with the world of information. She gave a great tour everywhere we went and answered all our questions. We were happy the Notre dame cathedral was closed because it meant we had a bit more time in the War Museum, which was definitely needed. I was glad we chose this tour, as you get the background information before visiting the tunnels and you understand and appreciate it more.
