    Interesting experience Cu Chi Tunnels

    The experience was great! Just a quick recommendation for the agency: if there is breakfast included offer all the same items or if you want to have several (croissants, sandwiches,etc) you should have at least one of these per person. It is pretty ugly that first come, first's served. We were around 14people, and there were 3 croissants and several chicken sandwiches, and others. I don't eat meat and, although being the last to be served, had luck this time and had one croissant...otherwise I would have eaten anything... an advice: for what is charged be generous and offer option to the tourists...

    Great time! Well organized and definitely ahead of all the tourist buses! Also great scenery along the river and lovely snacks and cold drinks.

    Cu chi tunnels are definitely worth a visit and this tour is the way to do it. Tour guides very informative and very easy to travel by speed boat.Lunch was also delicious!

    Very disappointing

    Were picked up at 6.45am then had to run around picking up other people. Waited half an hr for 5 people as they had slept in !! False advertising saying we would be treated like VIP !!Then we were late at the tunnels as bus loads of people were everywhere. So hard to hear the tour guide. False advertising saying we would beat them. Then we found out that everybody else had paid $55 Australian dollars each for the tour from other hotels & sites but we paid $116 Australian dollars 3 weeks ago online with Voyagin. Not worth the money or wasting time waiting for other people. So dont book online with Voyagin wait until you get to Ho Chi Minh City !

    The boat ride was great! They came to pick us up directly in the hotel by boat as our hotel (saigon domaine) was located on the saigon river.
    Definitely worth paying the extra as we missed the massive flow of tourists arriving by bus a bit later...
    The guide was very good and continuous flow of drinks and fruits on the boat was great.

    Awesome, great guide, great boat ride. Beats going on the bus tour. The tunnels were amazing and the lunch at the end of the tour was fantastic. We had a family of 5 and it was value for money.

    Wonderful trip, many were saying how it was the best value trip they have done in Vietnam. Great for families, couples and singles.

    Lovely to spend time in a boat along the river rather than cramped in a bus on the way.
