What To Expect

Travel to Cu Chi as a VIP on one of our modern speedboats arriving hours before the large tour groups. Your English-speaking guide will explain the life along the banks of the Saigon River as your boat gracefully slaloms through the water hyacinths. After the scenic one-hour boat trip our guide will take you through the historic Cu Chi Tunnels. A light breakfast will be served on the way to Cu Chi and a traditional Vietnamese lunch will be served after visiting the tunnels. This tour is all-inclusive and hassle free. There are two options for Cu Chi Tunnels tour, go and back by boat or have a combine van & boat trip.

Description

Cu Chi Tunnel Historical Site tour will include visiting an American weapons gallery, and later on even a bullet riddled tank. You will be shown a variety of ingenious and rather brutal booby traps used by the VC. And you’ll try to discover secret entrances hidden by fake termite mounds and other creative disguises.
You’ll learn everything from how the kitchens fed up to 10,000 fighters in the tunnels (and how they disguised the smoke), to how they defended the tunnels from American bombs and infiltrators. You’ll even see the huge crater formed by an American B52 bomber.
An of course, you’ll be able to explore the 1-metre high tunnels themselves. These tunnels have been enlarged slightly, but it can still be a pretty claustrophobic experience – imagine living down there for months! Fortunately there are regular that allow you to exit easily if you wish. Original, unchanged tunnels can also be explored, although this is certainly not for the fainthearted!
At the end of the tour, there is a firing range that allows you to fire real war-era weapons including the M66 and AK47.
