7:00 AM: Early in the morning, our guide will meet you at your hotel’s lobby and bring you by car to our speedboat at Saigon Waterbus Station.
7:20 AM: 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.
8:50 AM: 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.
9:00 AM: 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.
11:00 AM: Enjoy a delicious traditional Vietnamese lunch by the river, consisting of authentic fried spring rolls, chicken and beef dishes, and soup.
12:00 AM: Say goodbye to Cu Chi Tunnels and return to Ho Chi Minh City by van to visit local places, visit the cricket farm to taste the unusual local specialty and a local rice papers-making house, and visit the organic vegetable farm.
03:00 PM: Arrive back to The City. Our staff will take you back to your hotel by car.
