Once your cruise ship docks at Ho Chi Minh City Cruise Port, you’ll greet your guide and head straight to the Cu Chi Tunnels, a 120-mile (200-km) network of tunnels used as a means of shelter from French air raids by the Viet Kong, an organisation of communist guerrillas.
Learn about how communities functioned below the ground and see the remnants of schools, hospitals, and living quarters inhabited by local residents. Please note, the tunnels are narrow and dark and may not be suitable for travelers prone to claustrophobia.
Following a traditional Vietnamese lunch, embark on a whistle-stop tour of Ho Chi Minh City’s highlights. See the grand Reunification Palace, the Gothic twin bell towers of Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica, the Central Post Office, and the War Remnants Museum.
After sampling authentic beef or vegetarian pho for dinner, your tour concludes with port drop-off.
