Morning Cu Chi Tunnels Tour from Ho Chi Minh City
From US$14.00
Overview
The Cu Chi Tunnels are best explored by guided tour from Ho Chi Minh, so you can fully understand their part in the Vietnam War and travel to them without hassle. With this tour, go underground to imagine the hardships of their Viet Cong inhabitants and see how they were used. Plus, sample some typical Viet Cong food and pay an optional visit to a shooting range (own expense).
What to Expect
Meet in central Ho Chi Minh and settle into an air-conditioned bus for your approximately 1.5-hour drive through to the Cu Chi Tunnels.

During your journey and on arrival, listen to introductions on the tunnels from your guide, learning how Viet Cong troops used them to shelter from, and launch attacks on, American and Southern Vietnamese forces during the 1956-1975 Vietnam War.

Watch a documentary showing how the tunnels often formed hideouts for whole villages, and descend underground for a guided tour. Walk by areas used as arsenals, hospitals, sleeping quarters, and kitchens; and learn how inhabitants overcame the hardships of their subterranean world.

Afterward, sample boiled manioc (cassava), a dish that sustained the Viet Cong guerrillas, and if you wish, visit a shooting range (own expense) to try firing an AK-47 or MK 16 machine gun.

Your tour then finishes at the original departure point.
