Excellent trip
Jan 2021 • Friends
Great way to get to Cu Chi tunnels...blast along the river is really exciting experience. Hang, our guide, was not only personable but we'll informed and took time and trouble to present a well balanced view of the events of the war. Breakfast and lunch included. Boat was not only fun but a great way to beat the heat.

Professional and informative
The Cu Chi tunnels tour by speedboat is really fantastic and I would highly recommend. Les Rives just make everything so easy, from communication to pick-up to the tour itself.

Going by speedboat was really fun and a good way of beating the Saigon traffic.

Kha was an amazing guide. His English is perfect! He is incredibly knowledgable and has a lot of personal stories about the war which truly enriched our experience. The tunnels themselves are super interesting and I felt like I came away from the tour with a better understanding of the war.

Definitely the best way of seeing the Cu Chi tunnels!

If you only take one trip, take this one. On the way to the tunnels, you enjoy fruit and croissants as well as amazing scenery. The tour of the tunnels is fascinating and the trip back gives you another perspective of life on and around the river. Our guide was excellent and everything ran like clockwork from start to finish. Excellent.

Half day tunnels & sppeedboat
A first class trip.

Our guide 'Ka' was outstanding; his English, his knowledge of the site and history of the war. The meal at the site was good quality and the speedboat trip worth every penny. Highly recommended.

Fun way to travel and learn about something not well known by many
Mar 2020 • Couples
We had a really nice experience taking the boat up the river to learn about the tunnels that were a major part of helping the Vietnamese win the war.
Instead of being on a bus it is fun to be in a boat with a nice breeze and see the scenery along the way. Our guide Chow was very knowledgeable. We got to go in one tunnel to see what it was like. I really admire the tenacity they displayed even though war is never a pleasant experience

We did the half day speedboat Cu Chi Tunnel tour and it was awesome! The boat was such a fun way to travel to the tunnels and so much more enjoyable than being in a bus on the roads. It was nice to see the life along the river. The staff was also great and really helped make the experience more enjoyable. The breakfast of fruit and Vietnamese coffee was great, and lunch at the restaurant was delicious.

Jan 2020
This is the best way to get to the tunnels... via speedboat up Saigon river and bypassing all the crazy Vietnam traffic!
We had a great experience. The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgable! The speed boat is close to 2 hours and a cool way to see different parts of Saigon too!
We loved the visit to the tunnels. Was very eye opening and educational. We also visited in the right season too as it wasn't too hot or too cold... perfect temperature because it is an outdoor activity so the weather would be a factor to consider!
This excursion is a must if your visiting Saigon!

Best way to see the tunnels
Feb 2020 • Couples
Speed boat was modern , fast and not crowded. Spent an hour and and a half speeding up Saigon River which was great. Much better than going by road! Lunch was super- don’t eat before you go! We got the 11.00 trip. There is an earlier one.
Tunnels well worth seeing. Guide was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English.Go down the tunnels as long as you’re not claustrophobic!
Speed boat back. Arrived at 5.00 and transport back to hotel. Super trip!
