Spend a day exploring Vietnam’s wartime history on a private, 9-hour tour of the Cu Chi tunnels, the Reunification Palace, and the War Remnants Museum that includes all entrance fees and round trip hotel transport from Ho Chi Minh City. Enjoy the flexibility of a private guide, so you can visit the moving sites at your own pace, with plenty of time to see the places that interest you most.
  • Entrance fees included
  • Full-day, private tour war history tour from Ho Chi Minh City
  • Led by a local guide
  • Private guide for a personal experience
  • Round-trip hotel transport included
Begin with pickup at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, then travel to Cu Chi in a private, air-conditioned vehicle. Learn the history of the tunnels as you drive: the Cu Chi network were developed during the war for independence from the French, then expanded during the war with the United States, known in Vietnam as the American War. Explore secret trap doors that hid the entrances from outsiders, and find underground kitchens, living areas, and meeting rooms. Find out about life in the tunnels during the wars, and how they were used to launch the decisive Tet Offensive in 1968.
After visiting the tunnels, return to Ho Chi Minh City to see the Reunification Palace, where the war came to an end in 1975 after negotiations between northern and southern leaders. The former Presidential Palace is now preserved as a museum, with underground bunkers, and displays of war-era artifacts.
Make a final stop at the War Remnants Museum, whose exhibits document the human tragedies of the two decade-long war. Take in exhibits that depict civilian casualties and the long-term effects of the war alongside displays of tanks, airplanes, and weapons. This tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.

The tour was very informative and well organised. Plenty of time to take in what life must have been like during the war and living in and around the tunnels.
Lunch a set menu - which we had not appreciated, but was pointed out by our guide - very filling and tasty!
The Remnants War Museum was interesting as was the Reunification Palace - both worth a visit.
The Guide Martin was extremely knowledgeable and kept the pace just right.
