Depart at 7am or 7:30am to avoid big crowds. Our guide and private car will pick you up at your hotel and bring you to the pier to catch a luxury speedboat to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Here, you will learn more about the secret world of the Cu Chi freedom fighters, how their tunnels functioned as busy underground cities and the conditions they lived in. Light breakfast will be served on board.
Riding comfortable bikes with the guidance of a knowledgeable local, this trip will take you through peaceful villages, agricultural landscapes and the daily lives of the inhabitants. A visit to the famous Cu Chi tunnels tops off a day of adventure and provides some historical context for the well-known attraction.
We will walk past huge bomb craters - evidence of the heavy bombing campaigns in the region during the American War, discover hidden entrances right beneath your feet, wander past tiny chimneys in the ground that dispersed smoke from underground kitchens, sample some of the simple cuisine that local fighters would have survived on and have an opportunity to venture into the tunnels and explore the complex.
Lunch en route at a local restaurant along a river before heading back to Saigon by boat.
