We chose this tour to Cu Chi as the boat sounded a whole lot better than the bus - and it was a good trip each way by being able to see life on and around the river.
Our guide, while polite, was robotic and went through the motions of his well rehearsed and delivered tour. He really did seem as though he would rather have been somewhere else.
For us, the Cu Chi Site itself is a definite tourist manufactured place and the tour is too rushed and impersonal - I know we will hear from someone who will tell us it is peak season yadda, yadda but really it is peak everywhere and yet we experienced a lot better value for our dollar at other sites, albeit the history from the Vietnamese perspective was good to hear, although we had already read most of what was relayed.
The lunch on the landing was actually really nice and quite a surprise.
