Full description
Cu Chi Tunnels is the unique underground village with a complex network over 250km long, a must-see destination for every first time visitor to Vietnam!

This tunnel system was created as defence against the enemy. It provided a safe and hidden city for long term living with smoke-free kitchens, storage, handicraft and tailor stores, weapons factories, healthcare services, meeting rooms and command centers, which connected over one thousand tiny-warming houses where local people lived.

Visit Mekong Delta, a green and peaceful landscape with the expanses of rice fields, to see the typical agriculture life, and immerse yourself in such local activities as: tasting locally-made candy, enjoying traditional folk music (recognized by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity), rowing sampan through the green canals, and eating the typical Giant Gourami fish dish.

Gorgeus Tour guide, enough time to enjoy everything

Everything perfect: the tour guide, the driver, the van, the itinerary and the food. My kids were very interested and asked a lot of questions! Unforgetful!
