Our guide will meet you at your hotel’s lobby and bring you by car to our speedboat at Saigon Waterbus Station.
Then you will depart Saigon by speedboat. Within 15 minutes, the banks of the river change from city sprawl to lush jungle. A light breakfast of sandwiches or pastries, fresh tropical fruits and Vietnamese iced coffee (Ca phe sua da) is served, as your guide explains rural traditions and aspects of riverbank life.
You will arrive at the Cu Chi Tunnels site before the majority of larger bus tours arrive. Watch a brief introductory ‘propaganda’ video to the Cu Chi area.
Explore the tunnel site, which includes weapon and booby trap exhibitions, navigate the authentic Viet Cong tunnel, visit different underground bunkers (kitchens, meeting rooms, ammunitions, etc.), a firing range, and much more. Try the local cassava root that sustained Viet Cong fighters for years.
Enjoy a delicious traditional Vietnamese meal by the river, consisting of authentic fried spring rolls, chicken and beef dishes, and soup.
Say goodbye to Cu Chi Tunnel and return to Ho Chi Minh City.
Arrive back at Saigon Waterbus Station. Our staff will take you back to your hotel by car.
