About
Within one short day, this tour brings you over a distance of nearly 300km, to the two most contrast but equally interesting sites near Saigon. One site is the Cu Chi tunnel system which experienced one of the most destructive wars in the history of mankind. The other site is the pleasant Mekong delta in My Tho with exuberant orchards and rice fields. After sweating yourself out from going into the underground tunnels which are stuffy and hot, you can relax yourself on a boat ride on the Mighty Mekong river and numerous small canals in pleasant breezes.

Cu chi and Ho Chi Minh combination
Jan 2020 • Couples
An excellent tour from Phu My port to Cu Chi and Saigon in one day. Organised by email from home, the staff replied promptly and with a can do attitude. We were met at the port on time, the guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The tour exceeded our expectations, and the price was very reasonable for all the inclusions. We would highly recommend this company and would certainly use them again in the future.

Many Tours with Smile Tours
Apr 2018 • Couples
We took five tours with Smile Tours during our last trip - Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An and DaNang, Cu Chi Tunnels, and Saigon City Tour. All five were wonderful - great guides, interesting itineraries, and great customer focus. I would recommend this tour company for any tours you are considering in Viet Nam
