One of the best tours ever! A must for all visitors to Ho Chi Minh!

My tour guide (Sally) and driver were very punctual picking me up at my hotel. I however was late and they waited patiently for me. For the record, Sally was one of the friendliest and most knowledgeable guides I've had on any tour in the world. She made a great day even better! The facilities at Cu Chi tunnels are clean, safe and accessible. There are many exhibits and artifacts to see along the tour including multiple versions of tunnels, booby traps, a destroyed tank and artillery. There is also a live-fire gun range. Going into the tunnels themselves is not for the faint of heart! I thought I could make the full 100 meter journey but only lasted 20 meters. There is a small dining area along the trail with a variety of food and beverages for purchase. The tour is very thought provoking and guests should be respectful as it's an actual battle ground. I highly recommend this for people of all ages.

My guide Lucy was extremely knowledgeable and friendly with a beautiful warm smile. What I liked most was learning about the operation of the tunnel system and its advantages to the Vietnamese people. I loved that we could crawl through the tunnels which in turn elevated my understanding. I highly recommend Lucy and Vietnam Adventures tours for a fun educational experience.
