Half-Day Cu Chi Tunnels Tour from Ho Chi Minh City
From US$26.00
Venture underground to explore the legendary Cu Chi Tunnels on this half-day tour from Ho Chi Minh City, including hotel pick-up. Learn about life in Vietnam during the American war as you see bomb craters, an American army tank and booby traps, and have a go at firing an AK47 (optional). Then, tour the fascinating tunnel network, which spans more than 250km underground and included war bunkers, command centers and weapons stores. Don’t forget to take a photo of yourself peeking out of one of the camouflaged trap doors!
What to Expect
Today the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction giving the visitor a unique experience and a feel of what underground life in the Việt Nam War must have been like. The tunnels have been widened for our benefit (otherwise we would not be able to enter them!) For those interested there's even the opportunity to fire off rounds from an AK47 or MK16 at the nearby rifle range.
We will pick you up between
08:00a.m. - 08:30a.m. at all places in District 1, Hồ Chí Minh City (
or 01:00p.m. - 01:30p.m. for Afternoon option). We drive between
1,5 hours - 2 hours through the pleasant countryside to Củ Chi District. Before entering the tunnels we will watch a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were constructed its history. We then spend the next hour exploring the maze of tunnels. On display are various booby traps and the quiet remains of an American tank. Along the path you'll see various craters left by 500-pound bombs dropped by B52 bombers. After your visit, try some local tapioca that sustained VC fighters for years. At the end of your morning tour, you will have 2 options:
* Option 1: We can take you to a local restaurant in the city center, where you can enjoy a complimentary Vietnamese three-course lunch, and then make your own leisurely way back to your place.
* Option 2: We will drop you back to where we picked you up in the morning.
Please notes that:
- Lunch option is only applied for morning tour.
- Please inform your choice to our tour-guide in advance.
- Option 1 will apply to all tour dates EXCEPT the period from February 1-10, 2019.
- Timing and itinerary are subject to change without notice. However, we will do everything we reasonably can to make sure everything goes according to plan.

Great trip to see the tunnels!

We had a small group to see the tunnels. Our guide Ruth gave us lots information, with a healthy dose of humor, about the history of the war and Vietnams past. I would definitely do it again!
