"Our Cu Chi tunnels speedboat tour with Fisheye was an absolutely amazing experience. Our tour was a small group of just six people, including our family and a lovely Australian couple. Our guide, Rah, was a delightful young Vietnamese lady with a fantastic sense of humor and an impressive level of knowledge. The tour of the tunnels was truly mind-blowing. It must be seen, without a doubt!"
