We had limited time to visit the tunnels before our flight. Chose this company for the high reviews and they deserve it. Everything was on time, pick up at hotel, leaving from the dock (boat ride was around 1 hour), tour at the tunnels, lunch and trip back. They called a private car to take us to the airport The price seems very high but maybe this is what it costs to provide consistent high service.

We did the 7 am tour - pick up was prompt, and the boat trip was great. The boat was spotless and in great shape and definitely a nice way to travel. The tour itself was really interesting - our guide Tony was knowledgeable and very interesting, and we beat the crowds. We learned lots and the crawl through a short section of the tunnels is definitely an experience!

Was very glad we took the fast boat to tunnels .Enjoyed the whole tour and can only be amazed by the courage and intense dedication on the Vietnam people. They were the experts in jungle warfare and the Americans really had no real idea and it is no wonder that their death rate was so high. It was a war that they were never going to win. .Seeing the maze of tunnels & the depths & distances they travelled was amazing and scary.Had a very sincere guide for the whole trip who explained everything very well. Had a excellent meal and was back by 2.00
