Guiding Method

 

Experience this half-day tour either on a morning or afternoon departure. Listen to the history of the war, the ingenuity of the Cu Chi residents and the daily activities of the residents of the tunnels.

 

 

     At either 8am or 12:30pm your private tour guide and car will pick you up from your hotel and take you North West to the Cu Chi Tunnels which are 70kms away. This is an area where Vietnamese people proudly held their ground during the Vietnam war (in Vietnam it is known as The American War). Over 200kms of underground tunnels were made, the trip will help you understand the struggle the Vietnamese would have gone through on the frontline. It took an enormous amount of ingenuity, courage and imagination to match the enemy and these tunnels were a big part of the Vietnam War and ended being a resounding victory for the Cu Chi people.

The tunnel system, fortifications and trenches were a part of a soldiers life, you will see how they lived, the kitchens, store rooms, hospital, living quarters. You can crawl around parts of the tunnel yourself and watch a video of the history of the Vietnam War in this area and you also have chance to shoot many kind of guns (AK-47) on the shooting range (extra charge).

We will then take you back to your hotel.

Really helpful company and unmissable place

We booked this tour at the last minute, yet Roadstour Vietnam couldn’t have been more helpful with the booking and payment. We needed a pick up from the airport, and a drop back to a hotel in Ho Chi Minh City and this was no trouble at all. As the tunnels are out past the airport, this is a great way to do the trip.
Our guide was OK, nothing more than that, although she answered all of our questions. One of the guides at the tunnels was so enthusiastic, telling his group loads of information with passion. Our guide really brightened up towards the end of the tour when she could play with the cats in the shop. The tunnels themselves were great, providing a real and shocking insight into life for the Viet cong. I would definitely recommend this tour and this company.

Great Trip to CuChi tunnel and Great Tour-guide

We booked a trip to Cuchi tunnel for 5th July 8.30am for three of my friends and me, and I can safely say that we all went off very satisfied.

CuChi Tunnel — The trip to CuChi tunnel is a must for all travellers to Ho Chi Minh. It will show you so much of the ingenuity and tenacity the vietcong guerilla possessed that it will make you go “Wahhh” over and over again. It will leave you a lot more culturally and historically informed than if you go to other museums. It is also definitely more interesting since you get to see and explore first hand the tunnels used by the vietcong by climbing through them.You will also get to fire either M-16 or AK-47 for a fee (about 400,000 dong for a packet of 10 rounds)

Our Tour Guide (Nhi) — The trip would not have been as interesting without our tour guide — Nhi. She was not only extremely knowledgeable, but also very funny, hospitable, helpful, and friendly. If you are the kind who is afraid of awkward moment, you should definitely pick this tour because she can always find something interesting to talk about/ do.
We even became friends after the tour and met to have dinner together the next day!

If you are looking for a tour that involves more than just a simple explanation of the history and artifacts, and instead involve making new friends and getting to know the local culture from the locals, you should pick Roadstour Vietnam.

Friendly tour guide

I went on a half day trip with three of my friends to cu chi tunnels. The tour guide ms nhi was very friendly. She had kept us engaged throughout the tour and her knowledge of the attraction had left me with a good impression of the attraction . She also shared snippets of the vietnMdse culture with us to get me to understand the local customs better. Kudos to the services and I enjoyed the tour very much

1/2 Day Cu Chi Tunnel Tour… Best Car in Vietnam and Knowledgeable Guide

He lived it! Literally, Mr. Ryan was a civil servant for the Southern Vietnamese back in the day and remembers it all very well. Has solid knowledge as a guide although perhaps not as polished as someone who may have gone to school for it. He’s fluent in English and French and quick to engage and converse in either. His car (new Chevy sedan w/ leather interior) and driver are the best we had in all of Vietnam.

Hired his services for a private 1/2 day trip to Cu Chi Tunnels as his was one of the best prices we rcvd (price incl. admission to Cu Chi). You’ll want a guide for this experience as there’s really no signage around the attractions. He covered everything at a high-level and went into more detail if you inquired. Left the hotel promptly at 8AM and returned by 12.30PM. A day well spent.

Professional service and Good car for Chu Chi Tunnel and HCMC Tour
Before we made a booking, we communicated via email with Ryan The Manager and he was very helpful to accommodate our request and giving solution. I gave him the list of tourist destinations and he arranged the destination in order complete with the estimated time. The driver greeted us in the airport and i found the car was very comfortable also clean. His accounting staff came to our hotel with wireless EDC Machine to settle the payment and i believe this is an Excellence Service!! I didn’t need to go to the office so I can save my time a lot. Even though we were not accompanied by the guide but we can have all destinations as planned since the driver knew all destinations. I am confident to recommend this company to everyone

Tout simplement parfait.
Je suis parti en voyage solo au Vietnam et ai eut recours à cette organisation.
Tout simplement parfait, guide sérieux et serviable, très gentil et qui a su répondre à toutes mes questions.
Pour mon prochain séjour, je repasserai par cette agence les yeux fermés !

Our guide, Viet, was really great. His English was good and his knowledge was vast. Not just of the areas we visited, but of South East Asia and its history. I would definitely recommend this trip and if you’re lucky enough to get Viet as your guide, then you’ll be assured of a great day.

We did the 1/2 day tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels and we were very impressed with the entire process. The booking was very easy, and received emails confirming the payment and tour immediately. We were picked up by our guide Nhi Nguyen at our hotel. We had intended to return to the hotel after the tour, but when we told Nhi the flight times, she advised we should take our bags with us and organised a drop-off at the airport. The trip to the tunnels was busy, but we had a great trip. All the way Nhi pointed out sights and gave very good information. During the tunnel tour, Nhi was an excellent guide and we enjoyed a very personal tour experience. There were many tour buses there that day, so picking a private tour was a very good choice. If you are interested in doing a tour and learning more about the history of the area during the war, this is a great way to learn. I can highly recommend this tour, and especially recommend Nhi and her company Roadstour Vietnam. Nhi has a great personality, very helpful and her English is excellent.

Friendly and helpful guide. Interesting to find out about the tunnels and an interesting (but long) drive to get there.
