Choose between morning and afternoon departure times and then receive a transfer from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel. You’ll transfer to the city’s central pier, where you’ll board a boat traveling up the Mekong River heading to the Cu Chi Tunnels.
The exact itinerary details and inclusions vary depending on if you select the morning or afternoon departure, but both trips will get to learn about daily life in the tunnels during their main years of operation during the Vietnam War. You’ll see some of the weapons and booby traps used by soldiers hiding in the tunnels, and tour the different rooms (firing range, kitchen, meeting area) where tunnel residents once congregated.
Depending on the time of your trip you’ll also receive a selection of snacks and meals. At the end of the excursion you’ll be dropped off back at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.
Please refer to the itinerary section below for a full explanation of the morning and afternoon trip options.
