Start your day with pickup from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel in the early morning.
Settle into your private air-conditioned vehicle with your guide for the 38-mile (60-km) drive to the Cu Chi tunnels. Upon arrival, learn the background of the site while watching a short film about the tunnels. Then follow your guide around the site to learn about the web of tunnels dug by the Viet Cong fighters, and how they made bamboo traps, rice paper, and rice wine.
Continue to My Tho to discover one of the provinces of the Mekong Delta. Take a boat cruise on the upper Mekong River and observe some common activities in this region of Vietnam, which depends on the river in many ways.
Explore the smaller waterways by row boat, passing agricultural areas with fruit orchards, bee-keeping farms, and coconut groves. Stop to sample honey tea, fresh fruit, and coconut candy, and hear the folk music of southern Vietnam.
Your tour ends with return to Ho Chi Minh City and drop off at your hotel in the early evening.
