In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities.

Know More about this tour

Leaving the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City behind, take a 2.5-hour journey west towards the Cambodian border bound for the Cu Chi Tunnels. The Cu Chi tunnels were built by local fighters during the Indochina conflict as a base from which the Viet Cong could operate from close to the Southern Vietnamese capital. Initial construction started in 1948 when the Viet Minh required somewhere to hide from French air attacks and by 1965, the Cu Chi tunnel complex was estimated to consist of 200km's of tunnels. It included, hospitals, schools, meeting rooms, kitchens and sleeping quarters. Life was difficult for the inhabitants and to protect against outside intruders bobby traps were laid throughout the complex.

Your local guide will take you on a fascinating tour around the Cu Chi Tunnels where you'll learn more about the conditions the Vietnamese people lived in, the hardships they faced and the amazing ingenuity employed to maintain life in the tunnels.

  • Great! Nothing to complain about. I went here in June, 2016, and I still remember it fondly. I had always wanted to go here, so this was an amazing experience for me. Our guide I forget her name, but I think she was of Filipino decent was waiting for us on time at specified location. She was very nice and gave us a lot of information about the history of the area. On our way there, had a fun stop at a rice paper-making farm, where we got to try making the rice paper impossible and feeding some of the biggest pigs I've ever seen in my life. The tunnels are amazing. Even if you don't crawl through them, seeing the history and being in the area is worth it. My only advice would be to bring a pair of earplugs with you, as the tour takes a stop at a shooting range. The guns are extremely loud and you don't get earplugs until you get right next to the range. The tour isn't that long six hours or so, but that's all you need, plus in the summer, the heat can be pretty harsh, so definitely bring a drink or buy one at the entrance. Definitely do this tour if you're in the area!

  • Great tour! Definitely worth seeing if you're in Ho Chi Minh city. The history and tunnels are interesting and our guide was really knowledgeable. The tunnels are extremely hot and small, just heads up if you are claustrophobic, but it's very easy to exit after the 1st 20 meters.

  • This was a great tour and one of the bright highlights of my trip to Vietnam. The coolest part of the tour was actually crawling through the tunnels not for the faint of heart. I highly recommend this tour.

  • The guide was difficult to understand. And the tunnels as a total were very biased. Would not recommend this tour guide. The tunnels were awesome tho, seeing everything and walking through them was a must do in ho chi minh if your there.

  • I had a lot of fun on this tour! The tour guide Queenie was awesome by giving us a lot of history and humor during the tour. Highly recommend!

  • Great experience, although I was not aware the tunnels would be so HOT inside. Very informative and great guide.

  • Great!

  • Very nice experience. Our tour guide has been very friendly and knowledgeable. He can speak good english and will really explain the history.

  • Awesome trip. It takes a while to go and come back but I really enjoyed this trip. Don't worry if you are claustrophobic in the tunnels you have an exit every 20 meters.... just allow a big gap between you and the person in front of you.

    If you decide to shoot the weapons they are extremely over priced.
