Itinerary Details

Depending on your hotel location you will either be picked up or you’ll need to go to our meeting point to start your cultural and historical adventure! Please see your voucher for specific details. Pick up will be around 8-8.30am.

Located 60km from Ho Chi Minh City, Cu Chi is now a popular spot for both Vietnamese & foreign tourists alike. The 200km network of tunnels became legendary because of their vital role in the war. In their heyday, the tunnels were fully functioning underground cities including numerous trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers & kitchens.

Today, ducks and water buffaloes happily co-exist by the rivers along the side of the road, the peaceful rice paddy scenery masking the areas violent history. Visitors find it hard to imagine the destruction, damage & defoliation throughout this whole area, caused by bombing and mines.

There is plenty of evidence of the fierce battle that took place here during the 1960’s when Cu Chi was a "Free Target Zone". 

We'll escape the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh City and take you on a thrilling boat ride along the Saigon River towards the Cu Chi Tunnels. The trip will take about one hour.

At the tunnel complex we will spend time to explore the maze of tunnels with countless trap doors, storage facilities, weapon factories, field hospitals, command centers, kitchens and much more. Enjoy Cassava, one of the typical and popular foods during the American War at Cu Chi tunnels.

You’ll have some spare time to relax or for those who want to try, they can do some real shooting at the range.

On the way back, we will drop you off at War Remnants Museum, Ben Thanh Market or your hotel in District 1. Expected time back is around 2pm.

Pick up will be around 8-8.30am and the trip will be finished around 2pm
