excellent tour, we were taken to the tunnels at Ben Duoc which were a lot quieter and fewer tourists than the neighbouring tunnels at Ben Dinh - worth the extra 20 minute drive. Khoa was very knowledgable and considerate - a great day out

We have a great experience exploring the Cuchi tunnels and Viet Cong village with Khoa. He was very knowledgeable and provided us with a great and thorough tour. Be ready to enter the tunnels used during the war by the Viet Congs to fight the Americans, really cool experience. It's located about 1h 30min out of the city (by car), and it's a great way to learn more about the Vietnam war from Vietnam's point of view. Highly recommend.

It was an amazing tour by Khoa!! He's very well connected with the company that manages the tunnels. Which means you can bypass the crowds and receive and more personal experience with with the staff. I highly recommend paying a visit to the shooting range! Bring local currency , it can be expensive but believe me its well worth it!! I shot the M60 and it was just amazing!!
Khoa had a lot of insights into the tunnels and provided little gems of information as we went through the tunnels. Enjoyable tour

Colin SimmondsUnited Kingdom
My wife and I took a private tour of the Cu Chi tunnels with Khoa and were very pleased with the efficient way he organised the event, including agreeing the vehicle specification with us in advance of the tour. Khoa was very knowledgeable on all the historical events we were keen to learn about and had prepared films and display material to explain to us the subject history in a clear and concise manner. We can recommend Khoa to anyone looking for a guide to the events around HCMC [Saigon].
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Colin and Jan, I am very happy that you had a great day on the tour. Sincerely, Khoa

Vivian EneverUnited Kingdom
We had a fascinating day, full of information and fun that our knowledgable guide, Khoa, gave us. He did his utmost to give us all the information we required. The set of tunnels we visited wasn't too touristy which we understand Toursbylocals deliberately chooses for that very reason, which was a blessing. We would recommend Khoa highly - we have come away with great memories, even though the tunnels represent a time of great suffering.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Vivian, Thank you for using Toursbylocals and choosing me as your guide for Cu Chi tunnels tour. I am happy that your family (Olivia, Cassian, Francesca and you) enjoyed the tour very much. Best regards, Khoa

Bev ChertkowSouth Africa
We spent 2 days in Ho chi Mingh city as part a cruise. Day 1: half day tour of the cu chi tunnels Kevin is Great - he's extremely conscientious , reliable and very organized . We were in email contact from the time we made the booking- he emailed a number of times to ensure that we knew where to meet and how to get to the port gate- some walk! The highlight of the tour was Kevin's discussion and explanation of the basics if the Vietnam War - highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bev, Thank you for comment. Best regards, Kevin
Carol BarclayForster, NSW, Australia
We had a great day with Khoa and his driver 'Hero'. The Chu Chi tunnels were an amazing experience for us and Khoa's choice of the first tunnels built meant no crowds at all and an informative display ... very interactive. Tea and tapioca afterward was a pleasant addition. Khoa then showed us part of the French area and historical highlights and a fabulous lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant which we rated highly. Thanks Khoa for your time and sharing of Vietnamese ways, culture and history. Carol and Judy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carol and Judy, Thank you for your comment. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your tour with me. Best regards, Khoa

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mike, Thank you for your kind comment. I am on the top of the world to hear that you are very satisfied with my tour services. Best regards, Khoa
Great tour. Kevin is very knowledgable about the cu chi tunnels and how how the Viet cong operated the network through the war. The way kevin kept our private tour away from the large groups was very discrete and allowed us better access to the various executions. We highly recommend this tour with Kevin.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Neil, I am very glad you enjoyed the tour. Thanks, Kevin

Heidi CanarelliHenderson, NV, United States
Khoa was a charming, intelligent tour guide. He met us at the airport with a large sign and then quickly whisked us to a new, air conditioned van. His English was a little difficult to understand at first but he was careful to repeat information until we understood. His efforts were more than commendable and in a short time we were very comfortable understanding him. He made the tunnels very interesting and we had a terrific day.
Janice DavisUnited States

Randy W.United States
We were on a Crystal Cruise and we used Kevin for two tours: Saigon city and Cu Chi Tunnels. Four of us (family). We enjoyed the tour very much. He used a new well air conditioned vehicle which was very spacious with a very good driver. Kevin was very attentive and is very passionate about his city and his country. We also thought he was very candid in his responses to our questions. Overall we were very pleased with both tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Randy, Thanks a lot for your comment. It was my pleasure to serve you. Let me send the best regards to Ellen, Brett and Rachael. Sincerely, Khoa or Kevin

Joy N.Kailua Kona, HI, United States
We spent a fascinating day touring the Cu Chi tunnels with Kevin. The ingenuity of the Viet Cong was amazing. Kevin's English skills were outstanding and he was both informative and entertaining. His suggestion that we stop at a lacquer factory operated by Agent Orange victims was one of the most inspirational events of our trip. His karaoke is very good but one song may be enough at the end of a long day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment.I am on the top of the world to know that you are very happy with my service and knowledge on the first day tour.
