Cu Chi Tunnels Half-day Tour

- 8:00am - 8:30am our guide will pick you up at your hotel in District 1 to Cu Chi Tunnels which is located about 60 km from Ho Chi Minh Center (around 1.5 hours driving from Saigon)

- We will drive through pleasant countryside with the peacefully rural rice paddy scenery containing ducks and water buffaloes swimming in the rivers alongside the road.

- Start the visit with the Ben Dinh section of the tunnels. Here you can imagine what it was like to be a guerrilla complete with Russian Carbine rifles and AK 47′s on display.

- Before visiting the tunnels, it's hard to imagine the destruction, damage & defoliation over this whole area, caused by bombing and mines. Visitors can watch a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were constructed. There is plenty of evidence of the fierce battle that took place here during the 1960s when Cu Chi was a "Free Target Zone".

- You will then spend the next hour exploring the tunnels under the instruction of local tour guide.

- Afterwards, you can enjoy tea, cassava (guerrilla’s food during the war), and experience with shooting guns (extra fee) then take bus back to Ho Chi Minh City.

- Arrive in Ho Chi Minh City at around 1:30pm. Trip ends.
