We used a tour agency (VN Bike Tour) to organize the trip for a family of 8 persons this afternoon. It is quite a distance though but it is a place to visit if you are visiting Ho Chi Minh. It gives a very good insight on the 20 year Vietnam war and how the guerillas adapted themselves to jungle warfare. Our guide, Tai, was very pleasant and provided us very good information on the history and uniqueness of Cu Chi Tunnels, how the soldiers lived in the various types of structures - workshop, hospital and kitchen. Part of the kitchen visit was to sample "tapoica" and local tea. There was even a firing range with various types of guns, with each bullet costing 60,000 VND (about USD2.5) and a minimum of 10 bullets per session.
It was an enjoyable visit and a must see indeed.

this was a private tour via citrus holidays for us, and was a great experience--this is a must for anyone going to Vietnam if close enough

Much more interesting than I expected you are in the jungle so insect repellent and water is a must , took about 2 hours to walk around we did not drop down into the holes! But some younger smaller people did. Fascinating to hear of the inventive solutions people engaged to help them survive. Did not bother with the machine gun range as handling weapons not really our thing but I guess others did , the constant noise from it added to the atmosphere in a way!

We spent a day on the tunnels tours.
It’s about an hour and a half from HCMC.
Best to have a local guide.

We had a guide who had prebooked the tickets. There is a bit of walking to do, but not too much suitable for all ages. You don’t have to enter a tunnel for the full experience. They have open tunnels and you can view how they hid and lived in there.

Again a MUST see.

We went to the tunnels last week. It was great since we arrived before all the big busses and groups came in. We had a local guide, who we met a day before on a Ho Chi Minh city tour. The guide organized a driver and we went to Cu Chi early the next day. When we arrived the parking lot was empty, so was the area. Great experience and would do it exactly the same way again. Altogether (10 USD tip included) we paid 50 USD, which was clearly great value for money!
