When you come to the tunnels you are assigned your own guide, which is great. We took the local bus 15 from Ben Thanh and then rode with scooter taxis to the tunnels, this is highly recommended for those who want to experience the locals' lives and not sit inside a tour bus for two whole hours!

I went here as part of an organised tour to the Mekong Delta. It was all pretty interesting. I didn't like the introductory film which was poor at best. I also felt quite claustrophobic in the tunnels themselves but thankfully there was not pressure to crawl through for long. My tour guide made sure we were there very early, which involved an exceptionally early start but this definitely paid dividends as when we were ready to leave the place was packed with bus tours and large groups.

Very crowded, a popular destination for all tours. Hot and sticky and uneven ground.

Tells the story of the conflict and intriguing ingenuity of the Viet Cong.

Worth the visit, but be prepared for crowds

Fascinating in-sight into how the tunnels were built and how some people actually lived in them for a length of time but the entrances were so small they must have been midgets!

The visit a the Cu Chi tunnels was extremely interesting, to see how they managed to survive underground, I was absolutely impressed.
