Overview
A popular destination from Ho Chi Minh, the Cu Chi Tunnels draw lots of visitors at peak times. This speedboat tour gets you there faster than you would by car so you beat the main crowds. Explore with a guide, and because you’re with a small group, have plenty of time questions. After included lunch, visit a cricket farm and other food producers on the ride back to your hotel.
Highlights
  • Beat the crowds on a Cu Chi and rural tour by speedboat from Ho Chi Minh
  • Learn about the tunnels and Vietnam War via guide commentary
  • Small group size means plenty of personalized attention 
  • Enjoy lunch and farm visits on the return ride back to your hotel
What to Expect
After Ho Chi Minh hotel pickup, board a deluxe speedboat on the Saigon River and enjoy an approximately 1-hour cruise to Cu Chi. Observe the riverbanks as your guide explains local life at the farms and villages you pass, and savor onboard drinks and fresh fruit. On arrival, enjoy a guided tour of the historical Cu Chi site and tunnels used by the Viet Cong against the Americans and other forces during the Vietnam War. Explore above and below ground to see what were once hidden supply routes, kitchens, and hospitals. After a riverside Vietnamese lunch, you’ll head back to Ho Chi Minh, stopping en route to experience local life. Visit an herb farm and a cricket farm, learning how the insects are made into delicacies, and get glimpse at traditional rice-paper production.

At the beginning I was a bit hesitant to even see Cu Chi tunnels as we did not want to spend 2 hours in car. Luckily, I found Les Rives in the book guide. It is a bit more expensive but totally worth it. From pick up in the hotel lobby, to nice breakfast to funny ride to

We had a fabulous trip with Kha being a wonderful, friendly and very knowledgeable guide. We appreciated getting there ahead of the crowds and pretty much staying ahead of them. A light breakfast on the boat is included and a beautiful lunch too. Pick up at hotel was on time.

This a great tour though it is expensive you arrive before the hoards of bus tours arrive. It take a lot less time than a bus trip out there and the scenery on the river is real interesting. Our morning tour included breakfast with drinks fruit and a tasty lunch at the tunnels.
