Full description
The morning tour will begin at 8:00 AM and finishes at 2:30 PM, the afternoon tour starts at 12:45 PM and concludes at 6:45 PM. Both tours finish in Ho Chi Minh City. Depart the City for Cu Chi Tunnels, just 60 kilometers. Cu Chi is now considered a heroic district for its role in the anti-American war in Vietnam. It is legendary for its 220 kilometer-long tunnel system and is a popular spot for both Vietnamese and foreigners to visit.

The peacefully rural rice paddy scenery is home to ducks and water buffalos swimming in the rivers along the side of road. You will find it hard to imagine the destruction and damage all over the area caused by bombing and mines when Cu Chi was a "Free Target Zone." The remnants in Cu Chi are evidence of the fierce battle that took place. You will even have chance to fire an AK-47.

At the end of the tour, the bus will take you back to Ho Chi Minh City. Select the "Sunset Cruise" option to continue your evening with a 30-minute cruise along the river while enjoying a free cocktail.

The driver will text you the day before the tour to decide on the time and place for pick up. We were pickup up from the hotel, punctual on time. Our tour guide was good, explained to us the history while on the way to cu chi. The place was abit crowded with tourist even though it was during COVID-19 period, but I guess it is was because there was not many tour available in HCMC. Overall the tour is good.

We booked the tour online. Much better value than similar more expensive tours. We were picked up from our hotel bang on time. Our guide Alex was knowledgable and full of background information. The journey to the tunnels was much longer than i expected. I also wasn’t expecting the cal in to the lacquer workshop. I did feel that Alex should have kept his corona virus conspiracy theories to himself!

Our trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels was amazing, and made even better by our guide Alex. He was funny, and very knowledgeable. I actually learnt an awful lot, but thoroughly enjoyed the day. The Tour company them selves were great, very professional, nice buses and provided water, A/C & Wifi! Definitely recommend this tour company for these tours, and hope you get Alex as your guide!
