    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    7.45am - 8.00am Pick up at your hotel and transfer to the dock, boat rides along Saigon River (approx. 1hr15m) Arrive at Cu Chi tunnel. Upon arrival, before exploring the tunnels, you will have some short introduction followed by introductory video about how the tunnels were constructed and how the people survived in the harsh conditions of the war time. Then, spend your time to explore the remaining area and tunnel systems which included the special constructed living areas with kitchens, bedrooms side by side with other martial facilities like storage, weapons factories, field hospitals, and command centers helping whoever lives inside the tunnels meet their basic needs. Besides, there are also many hidden trap doors and dangerous traps within the maze-like tunnels for security purpose during the war. Afterward, special tea and cassava (guerilla’s food during the war) will be served. Break time for relax or time for those who want to try the real shooting gun. Have lunch. Return to Saigon by bus. 15.00pm Finish your Cu Chi Tunnel Waterway Trip.

We did the trip to Cu Chi Tunnels via speed boat which I would totally recommend. It is the fastest and coolest way to get there. The tunnels themselves are incredible. The history and the ingenuity of the Vietnamese people is beyond belief. Even if you are claustrophobic you can get a great understanding of the way the tunnels worked and the way they lived.
Do not go to Ho Chi Minh and miss this experience.

The boat trip from Ho Chi Minh City to the Cu Chi tunnels was super fun with our amazing guide, Chi. We were provided with delicious fruits (tiniest bananas I've ever seen, but oh so sweet!) and amazing pastries on the boat. The tunnels themselves are an incredible feat of human creativity and determination. Although the film at the end of the tour is an obvious attempt at propaganda, one can't help but admire the work done by the North Vietnamese in completing these tunnels.

We travelled by early morning speedboat, a good decision as it avoids the tourist hoards that arrive by coach later in the day. The two way river ride is excellent and gives some non-city insights into Vietnamese life.

The tunnels certainly present a different view of the ‘American’ war as it’s called in Vietnam, but maybe the sight is rather touristy for humble travellers. The whole 250 km tunnel system is not actually a single system, but a linked collection of small zones that took over 20 years to complete and for which there is no masterplan, and no map. They’re also tiny in height and width, so if you’re a large non-Vietcong soldier then you have no chance to enter them.

We organised a half day trip to the Cu Chi tunnels via the river/boat. I can’t remember exactly but I think we payed about $65 AUD, this included being picked up around 8:30 by a small van with multiple groups that also been picked up.

Dropped off at the pier and boarded a speed boat that seated about 10 tourists, it takes about 1 hr & 15 mins along the Mekong river to arrive at the Ci Chu tunnel pier.

You can choose a cheaper rate and arrive to the tunnels via bus, but I believe it takes about hrs give or take. It really depends on the traffic.

You spend roughly about 2 hrs being shown many things, including live firing ammunition guns which you can actually fire yourself. Bullets can be purchased per each bullet or as many as you want.

You get to experience going through one of the tunnels which is also a great experience.

Highly recommended tour while in Vietnam.

We ended up going to and from the tunnels via bot as the bus was not working which was OK.
The tunnels are interesting especially for people from outside Vietnam who may have only seen the allied stories. Tour guide was entertaining and the boat and driver were good.

The tunnels are something most tourists do. You need about 90 minutes at the tunnels. It shows the determination of the VC and conditions they were willing to endure.One of the better attractions in Saigon Vietnam. The boat ride makes it a nice outing. About a one hour ride each way, smooth and better than a BUS!!

Enjoyable trip. Ann, our guide was excellent, answering any questions and generally looking after "her family" really well.
Loved the boat trip up the river, and the tunnels themselves are an amazing experience. It was slightly crowded, though, and as such the tour had to be organised amongst the other tour groups around. Our group of 10 was a great size and far more intimate than some of the larger groups around.
Lunch was good, without being excellent, but I was a little surprised that we were expected to pay for drinks.
Return trip by bus was a bit disorganised...one minute we were on a bus, then we had to wait in the heat. It all meant we weren't back until well after 3pm.
Overall, a good trip that I would recommend
