Overview
The Cu Chi Tunnels lie north of Ho Chi Minh City on the banks of the Saigon River. On this tour, take the scenic route and arrive by speedboat, with breakfast served on board as you cruise through the countryside. On arrival, explore the fascinating war tunnels on a guided tour and learn how they were used by the Viet Cong in the Vietnam War.
What to Expect
After pickup from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, transfer to Tang Cang pier and set sail aboard a speedboat along the Saigon River. During the cruise, admire the scenery and tuck into a light breakfast of pastries and fresh fruit on board.

At the Cu Chi Tunnels, watch a short video presentation and learn how the Viet Cong used the 155-mile (250-kilometer) network of underground tunnels as command centers, ammunition stores, field hospitals, and war bunkers during the Vietnam War. Then, follow your guide on a tour of the tunnels and experience the fascinating site firsthand, as you crawl into the tunnels, pose for photos peeking out of a camouflaged trapdoor, or visit the shooting range (own expense).

After the tour, transfer to the Tan Cang resort for a delicious Vietnamese-style lunch, before cruising back to Ho Chi Minh City. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

Best way to visit the tunnels from Ho Chi Minh via speedboat. 1 hour each way on the river rather than 2 hours by coach. Wonderful English speaking guide Jesmine made it a great day.More
