What You Can Expect

Your tour begins with pickup from your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel and an around 2-hour drive to Cao Dai Temple in Tay Ninh.

On arrival, set out to explore the sacred temple with your guide and learn more about the fascinating Cao Dai religion, which borrows elements from Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, and Taoism. Then, take part in the midday mass, admiring the monks in their colorful robes and listening to the mesmerizing chants.

After stopping for lunch (included) at a local restaurant, continue to discover one of the most fascinating remnants of the Vietnam-American war – the Cu Chi Tunnels. Venture underground to explore the network of tunnels and bunkers, which stretch for over 124 miles (200km), and hear how they were used by the Viet Cong guerilla fighters. During your visit, learn more about the tunnels by watching a video presentation; explore the underground war bunkers, command centers, and weapons stores; pose for photos peeking out of a camouflaged trapdoor; and sample ‘cassava’, a popular dish eaten by the guerrilla fighters.

Back in Ho Chi Minh City, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Quite a long drive to get there, but very interesting. Would like to have spent more time there. Very nice lunch. Then onto cu chi tunnels. How they managed to survive in these during the work was a miracle.

Great combination of the two most popular day trips outside HCMC. Expect a long drive to the sights and back. Lunch could be better. Vibrant and engaging guide- Thao from TNK Travel. Would definitively recommend.

We had a great tour guide Bin who has a great sense of humor and knowledgeable about the Cao Dai religion and its history. The visit to Cu Chi tunnels was informative and fun. My only negative about this tour was about the bus's airconditioning was we not good enough to keep us cool.
