Just north of Ho Chi Minh City, the Cu Chi tunnels are a vast network of war tunnels and bunkers used by the Viet Cong in the Vietnam War. On this tour, benefit from a small group size for more attention from your guide, as you tour the tunnels and if you upgrade to the VIP option, enjoy a tasty lunch of traditional pho noodle soup or a Vietnamese baguette (banh mi).

What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel, travel from Ho Chi Minh City by air-conditioned minivan through the countryside to the Cu Chi tunnels. On arrival, follow your guide on a tour of the underground bunker. Learn how the tunnels stretch more than 124 miles (200 kilometers) and hear how Viet Cong soldiers used them as meeting rooms, weapons stores, sleeping quarters, and hideouts. During the tour, you have a chance to crawl inside the tunnels, take a photo peeking out from under one of the camouflaged trapdoors, and visit the shooting range (optional; own expense). If you've upgraded to the VIP option, enjoy small group sizes and savor a lunch of either traditional pho noodle soup or a Vietnamese-style baguette sandwich (banh mi), before drop-off at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.

vietnam TRAVEL group our tour guide mr giau cuchi tunnels trip very good tour!! I enjoy cuchi tunnels. I want to go again with vietnam travel group! あいさつ程度の日本語も喋れるガイドさんで英語があまりできない日本人の自分相手にもゆっくりとキレイな英語で喋ってくれたので、とても助かりました。でも、行く前にちゃんと自分でもベトナム戦争について調べておいた方がもっと楽しめると思います。予習大事!
