Overview
A popular destination from Ho Chi Minh, the Cu Chi Tunnels draw lots of visitors at peak times. This speedboat tour gets you there faster than you would by car so you beat the main crowds. Explore with a guide, and because you’re with a small group, have plenty of time questions. After included lunch, visit a cricket farm and other food producers on the ride back to your hotel.
Highlights
  • Beat the crowds on a Cu Chi and rural tour by speedboat from Ho Chi Minh
  • Learn about the tunnels and Vietnam War via guide commentary
  • Small group size means plenty of personalized attention 
  • Enjoy lunch and farm visits on the return ride back to your hotel
What to Expect
After Ho Chi Minh hotel pickup, board a deluxe speedboat on the Saigon River and enjoy an approximately 1-hour cruise to Cu Chi. Observe the riverbanks as your guide explains local life at the farms and villages you pass, and savor onboard drinks and fresh fruit. On arrival, enjoy a guided tour of the historical Cu Chi site and tunnels used by the Viet Cong against the Americans and other forces during the Vietnam War. Explore above and below ground to see what were once hidden supply routes, kitchens, and hospitals. After a riverside Vietnamese lunch, you’ll head back to Ho Chi Minh, stopping en route to experience local life. Visit an herb farm and a cricket farm, learning how the insects are made into delicacies, and get glimpse at traditional rice-paper production.

Really good tour. Highly recommend using them and getting in early. Just as we were leaving it was starting to really build up with other tourists. You miss all the traffic, get coffee, water, breakfast, lunch and snacks. Tour group is small and the guide/s are really good!

We were picked up at the hotel at 7:15 and arrived at the harbor where the boat was waiting. At the boat there was snacks and drinks and after 90 minutes we arrived to the tunnels. The guide explained the tunnels and history to us before we went back to Saigon by boat again. In
