Itinerary

After hotel pickup, get transferred to Ho Chi Minh Pier to board a luxury speedboat destined for the Cu Chi Tunnels.

During the journey, travel down the Saigon River while revitalizing with breakfast or snacks, depending on the departure time selected at checkout.

On arrival at the Cu Chi Tunnels, watch a short introductory film before descending into underground bunkers that functioned as a city during the Vietnam War (known as the American War by the Vietnamese).

After emerging from the tunnels, enjoy a Vietnamese lunch or dinner before returning to Ho Chi Minh by speedboat. This Cu Chi Tunnels tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

A different way to do it

Having spent almost a week in Saigon's frenetic traffic it was quite a chill way to get to the Cu Chi tunnels. We did the 11am sailing and seemed to miss the buses so lunch was quiet and few tourists when we were going round....More

Highly recommend this tour - very informative and well run

A friend recommended the speedboat 1/2 day Cu Chi tunnels to me and I'm so glad we decided to take this option. Yes it's more expensive than the bus trip but who wants to spend hours on the bus when you can be there faster...More

I believe you have to do it as a return trip, it's a long trip by road. I would recommend the speed boat and do the morning tour. Enjoy!!

The speed boat was good fun with great people. Canโ€™t remember when we were picked up but it was from our hotel and we return an hour earlier than scheduled at 3pm. That was great cause we could go out to enjoy Saigon.
