A brilliant tour well worth a visit to hear and learn about this very interesting location in Vietnam’s history.

Even though I knew a bit about the Vietnam war, I had no idea that these tunnels helped the local people to survive and fight against the enemy. The tunnels were built by hand using a small pick or shovel and a basket to remove...More

This was a huge eye opener as to what war can do to people. The system that these people developed to survive shows the lengths people will go to to live. It also shows the atrocities of what war brings. Cruelty, hatred and total disregard...More

I think seeing this was a good thing to do to get a better insight into the history here. The intro films were not watchable for me. I know the tunnels are a representation and not the actual ones. It was interesting to see how...More

Was so looking forward to this trip, but it’s missing something not sure what.... the tunnels have been made larger to accommodate the likes of myself and other not so slight individuals, but even then it’s a very tight squeeze and I was on my...More

Our tour was very interesting the guide was very well informed and to be able to actually enter the tunnels although it was only for 25M was great. It was a privilege to see the ingenuity of these people and their clever survival skills.

You'll get a very realistic experience of what it was like during the Vietnam War for the Viet Cong hiding from the South Vietnamese and US soldiers. An amazing experience.

Fascinating. Never learned about this aspect of the war in school. A must see if you are in the area. The trees provide cover so not too hot if you are sensitive to heat like i am.

You don’t have to go through the tunnels, you can see into them without entering, they are quite narrow and low with site guides watching and helping, you should do both 😊

We went with Kim travel (Luxury Group Tours). We went by a van with guide but they do have the speedboat option. I recommend asking for Jackie. He was very knowledgeable about the tunnel and had a great sense of humour. The... More
