Full description

Visit the Cu Chi Tunnels on a guided tour from Hồ Chí Minh city. Step back in time as you learn about how this vast underground network was used in the Vietnam war. Select the VIP tour option to enjoy beer, fruits, snacks, and lunch during your tour.

Depart from Ho Chi Minh City for Cu Chi Tunnels, just 60 kilometers outside the city. Visit the heroic district and learn about its role in the anti-American war in Vietnam. Explore the 220-kilometer-long tunnel system with your guide. Soak up the rural rice paddy scenery and sights of ducks and water buffalos swimming in the rivers along the side of the road. Imagine the state of this peaceful district back when it was a "Free Target Zone" and suffered great destruction and damage due to bombing.

See the remnants in Cu Chi that are evidence of the fierce battle that once took place here. Get a chance to fire an AK-47. At the end of the tour, hop back on the bus for the journey back to Ho Chi Minh City.

Theo was our tourguide and he was really engaging, warm and friendly. He gave a very detailed and accurate account of Vietnamese history and was definitely well versed with the specifics of the tunnel. At no point did Theo try to sell any products/ coerce travellers to make any purchases. The tour is also really well organised with the bus picking us up directly from the airport. I booked the tour at the last minute and everything administratively was well-handed. I would recommend booking an afternoon tour because there are generally less tour groups visiting the site.

We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Cung was excellent. He was very entertaining and funny, while at the same time teaching us all about the history of the tunnels and of Vietnam. The bus picked us up form outside our hotel and brought us to the Cu Chi Tunnels. We stopped on the way at a lacquerware factory that employs people with disabilities. There were toilets and a small cafe here too. We later arrived at the tunnels and Cung showed us around. Guides at the tunnels also explained to us about their history and demonstrated traps, etc. The tour was really interesting and it was great to be able to go into the tunnels and get an idea of what they must have been like to live in.

Theo was our guide, his knowledge and enthusiasm for the cu chi tunnels is undeniable. he also ensured to speak to each person, make them feel included, involved and answered any and all questions everyone had. he combined the history of the tunnels with Vietnamese culture very well. highly recommended the tour to both experience the tunnels but also to learn more about the history behind them
