Overview
Make the journey to the Cu Chi Tunnels as interesting as the attraction itself on a morning or afternoon tour by luxury speedboat. Instead of sitting through a long coach bus journey, enjoy a scenic speedboat ride along the Saigon River before exploring the Cu Chi Tunnels with a guide. A small group limited to 14 people maintains an intimate atmosphere, while hotel pickup and drop-off maximize the convenience of your experience.

A first class trip. Our guide 'Ka' was outstanding; his English, his knowledge of the site and history of the war. The meal at the site was good quality and the speedboat trip worth every penny. Highly recommended.
