Highlights
  • Personalized experience of Cu Chi Tunnels: choice of private or small-group tour
  • Delicious Vietnamese lunch at Tan Cang resort
  • Choice of morning or afternoon tour available
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off to Ho Chi Minh City
What to Expect
After pickup from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, transfer to Tang Cang pier and set sail aboard a speedboat along the Saigon River. During the cruise, admire the scenery and tuck into a light breakfast of pastries and fresh fruit on board. At the Cu Chi Tunnels, watch a short video presentation and learn how the Viet Cong used the 155-mile (250-kilometer) network of underground tunnels as command centers, ammunition stores, field hospitals, and war bunkers during the Vietnam War. Then, follow your guide on a tour of the tunnels and experience the fascinating site firsthand, as you crawl into the tunnels, pose for photos peeking out of a camouflaged trapdoor, or visit the shooting range (own expense). After the tour, transfer to the Tan Cang resort for a delicious Vietnamese-style lunch, before cruising back to Ho Chi Minh City. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

Took this trip to Cu Chi Tunnels by speedboat and is definitely the only way to do it, our guide said it takes over two hours on the bus. We were on boat for about an hour and a quarter each way and was quite exilerating speeding past other river traffic through the green water

Mr Chi was the most friendly and knowledgeable guide we could have asked for. Taking the motor boat to the tunnels is the best way to go! Skip the traffic and enjoy the scenery along the river. Top marks for this tour. Marc & Margot from Canada

The tour of the tunnels was really interesting but you can read plenty of reviews of that elsewhere. What we felt made this particular tour worthwhile was the speedboat ride to the tunnels and the guide. The speedboat ride takes an hour and it seems a much more entertaining way
