We family of four took the tour expecting it to be hectic and unsure how weather will hold up in June monsoon. However, all went smooth from the hotel pickup (district 3) 10 mins earlier, at 8am, to Cu Chi tunnel visit, live firing (paid - 600,000VND / 10 rounds), sumptuous lunch at Cu Chi to Mekong river island hopping with motor boats and short paddle boating.

Our guide Mr Lan ‘Unicorn’ is very experienced and passionate about the country and history of Sai Gon and Vietnam, which reflects in his briefing about Cu Chi tunnel history. I would recommend him if you are looking to immerse yourself in the history, which I believe is necessary to appreciate the Cu Chi tunnel as a tourist destination. It was total 7 of us in the van. Van was new, clean and comfortable. Cold water, some banana and beer was offered along the way.

Trip to Mekong river took about 2 hours from Cu Chi tunnel. We visited a coconut candy manufacturing & selling shop, tried king cobra wine there :). Hopped to another island for some fruits, tea and short Vietnamese live music performance before electric cart ride to paddle boating. You are expected to buy and tip along the way but none is mandatory and not overly expensive.

Overall it turned out very well. Heavy rain on the way back, btw.

Final note: If you are pressed for time and need to choose between Cu Chi tunnel and Mekong River, go for Cu Chi.

Our guide Kevin was very knowledgeable on a wide variety of topics. He is energetic and able to answer questions. The tour requires covering quite a bit of distance making the excellent driving and comfortable van worth the small upgrade fee.

Highly recommend this tour! Although a long day, Phu was a very knowledgeable tour guide who made the trip extra enjoyable through his sense of humour. Tunnels were extremely interesting, and the paddle up the river was beautiful (although brief). All the small food stops were awesome. The lunch served was delicious and of a high standard. You spend a long time in the van, so paying extra for a little bit of luxury is recommended.

Had the best tour with the best tour guide Mr Phú. He's a very informative knowing both Chu Chi tunnels and Mekong Delta. I saw some other tour groups which were bus loads (which I didn't like) and their guide not really knowing Cu Chi and Mekong Delta properly also we had the perfect amount in our people in our small group.
The luxury van has aircon and each seat has a built in massage chairs. Highly recommend if you are looking for the best VIP tour group it's with Vietnam adventure tours and make sure you are for Mr Phú to be your guide!!!
A++++ 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Thanks for the memorable tour.

The tour was perfect. We had Fa as oud guide and he has a lot of knowledge about the history of Vietnam. The tour rook around 12 hours and Rhode flew by. We where with 4 other people and because we were such a small group hé was able to talk with everybody and make sure everyone was happy.

The first trip is to the cu chi tunnels, where you make a stop at a local shop. Fa was very honest about the product and prices and informed us about alternatives with better prices. After that you proceed to the tunnels, and hé informes you about all the traps and tunnels. Hé can also guide you through the tunnels, but it’s quite narrow and even hotter than outside. You even have the possibility to shoot with one of the many weapons that were used in the war. This is not included in the trip and will cost you 60.000 VDH and gives you 10 bullets. After the tunnels we had lunch together and left towards the Mekong Delta.

It is a 2 hour trip without stops, so make sure you use the bathroom before leaving of inform Fa if you have to go, so hé can make a pitstop.

At the Mekong delta you take a boot to an island with different activities. Once again Fa informes you about what to expect and about prices. We visitied the beefarm, had a small boot tour, enjoyed local fruits with live music and ended with a visit to the local candy factory.

Fa stocked plenty of water, beer and sodas so you dont have to buy anything during the trip. Hebben brought sandwiches incase anyone was hungry.

If you want to save money book the trip with Vietnam Adventure tours self. This will save you $15 per person.

We spent the day with tour guide Phu and driver Mr Tong who were both very professional on the day. There was 7 of us on the tour.
Phu explained in detail the history of Vietnam and Cu Chi tunnels in the wartime era.It was very informative.
Phu joined us on the tour of Cu Chi tunnels and explained the tunnels very well. We think it would be best to visit Cu Chi tunnels with a guide.
Phu made the day very enjoyable and I highly recommend him as a tour guide that can explain the day in adequate English language and have a few funny jokes through the day.
The limousine 12 seater bus is well appointed with good air conditioning, water , in built seat massage,and usb chargers for phone cameras etc..
Lunch is extensive with more than enough food and drink after the Cu Chi tunnels visit and before teavelling to Mekong Delta.
The Mekong Delta visit , at My Tho, is very good with an opportunity to meet with local businesses on the water and see their produce for sale.

The day is extensive, with free pickup from our hotel in District 1 at 730am and we returned at 730pm.

A fair amount of time is spent in the bus during the day and we felt the whole day is suitable to go and see these 2 attractions.

The Cu Chi tunnels were incredible! So interesting and our great, fun and funny guide was very informative. Firing the M16 and AK47’s was also a highlight.

From there we drove to the Mekong and Lan played music for us making sure we all liked what he was playing.

We went to the river and it was sad to see so much rubbish in the water and on the banks, plastic bags, ponchos, bottles…

I would definitely recommend the tour and I hope you are lucky enough to have Lan Unicorn as you guide.

Went for the full day tour with VAT. We really enjoyed the tour to both Cu Chi tunnels and the Mekong delta. The pacing of the tour was well paced out and never at any point did we felt rushed! They also have very good lunch items. Kevin, our tour guide was very informative regarding both the history and cultural aspect of Vietnam. Additionally he was also very personal guide and kept all of us engaged throughout the tour. Even when we were faced with heavy rain mid trip before the Mekong river cruise, he kept his cool and gave us assurance and kept us calm as well! Kudos to Kevin and VAT for such high level of professionalism! Will definitely recommend a VAT as the service provider for day trips!

We had a day to get in as much as possible and this tour nailed it! Phu was our guide and clearly is passionate about his country’s history, story and people. He was thoughtful about our experience as Americans learning how the Vietnamese saw the war and the actions of both sides. He was respectful and thorough. He is knowledgeable and open to further discussion and questions.

I brought my 11 year old son and found it educational but balanced with moments of intrigue, fun and unique experiences.

100% recommend if you have a full day to explore outside of the city. Really added to our overall Vietnam experience.

From my son:
I loved the coconut island with warm fresh coconut candy 🍭 and I got to crawl through tunnels and learn about booby traps. So go on the adventure. You will have fun in my opinion 😃

Vietnam Adventure Tour has been an amazing experience for us. A fully loaded trip with snacks, food, drinks, coconut candies, all tickets paid for, music and tea. The limo has very plush seats with a massager to keep you cozy and rejuvenated all through the day. All this was possible because of the lovely hospitable tour guide - Lan alias Unicorn. He has been a super host, and royally pampered us all through the day, taken care of individual needs even like a phone charger, wifi, extra beer, raincoat and vegan food. He is very well spoken in English and knowledgeable too. He has a great sense of humour and keeps his family(fellow passengers) always happy. We highly recommend him, not to be missed that he is a great photographer too and can capture your memories very well. The driver Mr Trong has done his job very well. Even after a long day, we don't feel fatigued.
