Know More about this tour

Escape the metropolitan area of Ho chi minh city and head toward the Cambodian border. Delve into the underground world of tunnels built under the Cu Chi district by Viet Cong guerilla fighters during the Vietnam War.

After meeting your guide, get comfortable in your private car and enjoy the ride to Cu Chi, around 44 miles (70 km) from Saigon. On arrival, your tour starts with a visit of the Liberated Area simulation, a place where the historical period of 1960 to 1975 is simulated. The area is divided into the liberated area, disputed area, and no man's land. Your private guide will give you an introduction to Cu Chi and its legendary history.

To gain a deeper understanding of the tunnels and how fierce the war was, watch the documentary about the mystery of the Cu chi tunnels and enjoy a real history lesson. After watching the documentary, you and your local host will move on to the next stop, Ben Duoc, the impressive labyrinth of tunnels. Here you'll have a genuine experience of the tunnel; its a place mostly for Vietnamese tourists.

Once you are here, listen to the local stories about how the tunnels were built by fighters as a base from where the VC could operate. During your exploration of the 200-km network, youll be guided through the tunnel system, including the weapons factory, kitchens, hospitals, and crawling under the tunnels. Your private guide will tell you more about how the Vietnamese people lived below ground, and youll get a glimpse what life was like for those who called these tunnels 'home.'

By now, you have gotten the feeling of this historic site and heard the stories behind it. After experiencing the tunnels, enjoy the VC's staple food called tapioca, as well as hot tea, before heading back to Saigon.

On the return to the city, make a final stop for another snack and a local drink. You can listen to your host's recommendations and try a sugarcane drink, which is the extracted juice from pressed sugarcane. Enjoy the ride back to your hotel, and ask your host for any tips you might find helpful for the next days.
