Cu Chi Tunnels is a legendary underground system of over 220 km of tunnels, a must-see for both Vietnamese and foreign travelers who are interested in the history of the Vietnam War. The tunnels are now a historical structure of Vietnam and considered a heroic district for the role they played in the resistance to US forces during the Vietnam War.

The tunnels are located approximately 60km from Ho Chi Minh city. The tour departs at 8:00 am  or 12:45 from Vietnam Adventure Tours office or from your hotel in district 1. Enjoy the scenery along the way, as we pass the lush, endless rice fields and the ducks are water buffaloes swimming in the rivers. You might find it hard to imagine that once the area was almost completely destroyed by bombs and mines from the war, when Cu Chi was a “free target zone “.

Once we arrive, you will get a chance to walk through some of the tunnels, discover the hidden corners and imagine what life was like here for the resistance soldiers. If you like, try to cook with the smokeless stoves used by Vietnamese soldiers to cook during the war. You can even try foods which the soldiers lived on. If you’re feeling brave, or curious, you can even try your hand at shooting at AK-47, one of the guns used during the war.

Head back to the city in the afternoon; the tour finishes at 2:30 PM or 7:00 PM

    Amazing, our guide Tuan taught us about the history of the tunnels and shared many personal experiences whilst he served, making the tour more than just sightseeing.

    Tuan is a passionate and energetic tour guide. Really good insight and stories from his younger days as a viet cong himself! Best to experience and tour with a war veteran himself!

    It was such an interesting day. Our guide (Tuan) was truly amazing: he gave us so much input, lots to think about, he told us about the war, encouraged us to ask questions. His passion, his way of telling about what people and he himself had to live through are what makes the tour even more fascinating.

    Our tour guide was Tuan, he’s a 76 years old veteran, so we were
    So fortunate to hear directly first hand on the war story. He was very passionate of his job, it shows throughout the tour. He explained and told us the story clearly, since he experience the whole thing. He was very considerate, he bought a mosquitoes repellent for all of us to use prior entering the site. We love him and hope he stay healthy and be a blessing for more visitors to come.

    The day trip to Mekone River was great, I would suggest to do a longer tour if you have the time. Our tour guide Fa/ Khoa was a great guide with knowledge and humour

    I had Foo as our tour guide, must say he was very informative, very friendly and told great stories. Definitely worth the trip. He always made sure he catered for everyone’s needs even though everyone was from various countries.

    01/08/2023

    I definetely reccomend this tour especially for the ones are interested in history. We had Foo as our tour guide and from the begging to the end of the tour he informed us about history of Vietnam and about the life in this country. He told us very interesting stories about the Vietnam war and the tunnels. He was very friendly and took care about everybodies needs. In our group there are people from different nationalities and he could communicate everyone without any problem.

    Did the cu chi tunnels tour with Lockie and it was an incredible experience. He is so friendly and knowledgeable and made the whole trip exciting and fun. Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Vietnam. Take a photo let’s go ?

    Amazing and informative experience with Jackie
    Jackie, our tour guide, was full of first-hand information, that made this a memorable tour. Jackie fought in the war for the South Vietnamese and was able to share a unique perspective on the war. The tour was interesting and fun, despite the heavy topics. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you Jackie for an unforgettable experience.

    Definitely worth doing this trip if you’re in Saigon. Very interesting and fun. You get to crawl through tunnels, shoot a gun (VND) and see guerrilla traps!
    The tour includes a museum/workshop visit which hosts some beautiful eggshell, and mother of pearl artwork; you get to see the artists at work too!
    Our tour guide Mr Long was very easygoing, knowledgeable and easy to follow.
    To enjoy the full experience I’d recommend wearing comfortable footwear and clothes you don’t mind getting a bit dusty.
    Enjoy!

    01/08/2023

    We took the tour with Long. The organization of the tour and the information provided was very good. Long had a keen eye for navigating our relatively small group away from bigger tourist crowds 🙂

    01/08/2023

    I envoyed our tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ben Dinh. Long provided us with lots of information about Vietnam now and then. It was great also to get some more insights about todays life from a personal point of view. Crebbing though the tunnels is an very interesting experience as well, what I don’t want to have missed.

    01/08/2023

    Duc was a great guide for the half day tour. Informative, entertaining and made sure we all had a great experience.

    01/08/2023

    Worth the money and our guide Duc made sure everything was arranged 100%.

    Visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels was one of the unexpected highlights of our trip to Vietnam! It was extremely interesting learning about the history of the tunnels and the Vietnam war, however what made it extra amazing was our guide, Tuan. Tuan fought in the Vietnam war and provided us with us personal experience and details of his time there fighting for the south, paired with more historical info. Tuan was knowledgeable, engaging, funny and overall an amazing guide. I honestly don’t think I would’ve enjoyed the as much if he wasn’t our guide. The first hand experience sharing we got from him was irreplaceable. I would highly recommend you request him if you are to do this tour. Well worth the money.

    Thanks again Tuan!

    We did the afternoon tour with Tuan. It was great!! This guy really was there during the war, he told us about the real life on the battlefield and you could feel it was authentic. Crawling in the tunnels was a must try experience.
    I would recommend a tour with Tuan

    Cu Chi Tunnel
    Amazing! We booked last minute for a group tour and how lucky were we to have a surviving Vietnam war veteran as our tour guide. Tuan made our visit with real stories of what it was like to live through the war and his knowledge was incredible. He had photos and stories every step of the way. If you want a visit then please do yourself a favour and ask for Tuan, you will not be disappointed, it was the highlight of our holiday so far.

    My tour to the Cu Chi tunnels was great! Our guide Hang was very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the Vietnam War.

    01/08/2023

    We booked the tour to the tunnels in the morning on the 17th. Sadly we did not learn much and barely saw the tunnelsystem. The guide was obsessed with what people from the tunnels did with their urine but didnt teach us anything about life in the tunnels. The guide tried to pressure people into things they were not comfortaable with and made mean&sexist comments and jokes from beginning to end.
    The information to were closed shoes and bring mosquitospray should be displayed on the website and not be used to sell own products on the bus.

    01/08/2023

    Did the Cu Chi tunnel afternoon tour and was content way above expectations. Tour guide Steven (Phu) was amazing and extremely informative. He gave us so many relevant and interesting information regarding not only Cu Chi Tunnels and war but also Vietnamese culture and society through many interesting facts, stories and casual conversation. There was not a question he did not know answer to. I did many tours all around Vietnam but can say this one was definitely the best one without doubt.

    15/09/2022
