Private Morning Cu Chi Tunnels Tour from Ho Chi Minh City
From US$50.00
Overview
Explore a Viet Cong stronghold and Vietnamese wartime history on a 4.5-hour private tour to the Cu Chi tunnels from Ho Chi Minh City. Enjoy the flexibility of a private car and personal guide, go underground in the Ben Dinh or Ben Duoc sections of the tunnel, and learn how Viet Cong fighters used the network to launch the Tet Offensive.
What to Expect
Meet your private driver and guide at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, and leave the city for a classic Vietnamese landscape of rice paddies and traditional villages. Enter the Cu Chi tunnels — which stretch from Ho Chi Minh to the Cambodia border — at Ben Dinh or Ben Duoc. Get a glimpse of what life was like underground as you go deeper into the tunnels, where Viet Cong built field hospitals, weapon factories, and supply lines.
Find out the ingenious ways that Vietnamese soldiers used air filtration systems and trap doors to make the tunnels safe, and learn about the sickness and infestations that swept through the enclosed networks. Squeeze yourself into passageways that are sometimes just 4 feet (1.2 meters) high and 31 inches (80 cm) wide. After touring the tunnels, you’ll have the option to visit a shooting range (own expense) before returning to your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.

Very good!

Our guide (Cuo) was lovely, highly informative, and made the day very enjoyable. The tunnels were fascinating and you’ll have the chance to squeeze into them, and the gun range is so much fun. Great day :)
