“Hung was knowledgeable, hilarious and fun to ride with! VIETNAMRIDER® and their tour guides are very professional and safe- there was never a problem. I rode alone with Hung for over a week, and had the time of my life. As a young women traveling alone, I did have my doubts… but never any issues. The company provides you with homestays or hotels, and maps of your travels. I will keep my map forever. I highly recommend this company over any of the larger ones available at tourist spots…” Sarah, USA. Link here:

Tunnel Rats – How it all began: In January 1965 a unique chapter of Australian military history was created when a young Royal Australian Engineers captain called Sandy MacGregor, encountering a Vietcong tunnel system, asked a very pertinent question – does anybody know what’s down there? Sandy’s men in 3 Field Troop answered that by being the first Allied soldiers to explore the Vietcong’s tunnels in Cu Chi US Army protocol was to identify the entrances and destroy them thereby creating the legend of the Tunnel Rats. From here you will travel by the small roads in the quiet countryside to explore the rat-meet village before enter Saigon. End tour.
