Explore the secrets of the Cu Chi Tunnels on a half-day tour from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) and learn about the extraordinary network of underground rooms, hospitals and schools used during the Vietnam War.
What to Expect
Escape the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) on a 5-hour tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels of the Viet Cong and learn about one of the Vietnam War’s most remarkable remaining features.
Following a scenic drive northwest towards the Cambodian border, arrive at the Cu Chi Tunnels, a network of more than 125 miles (200 kilometers) of subterranean passages and rooms that played a vital part in the war.
The tunnels were dug by hand and inhabited by the forces of the Vietnamese guerillas. They stretched from the nearby Cambodian border to the edge of Saigon, even covering a onetime US airbase.
Your guide will talk you through the exhibits of old weapons, and you will get the chance to crawl several dozen feet inside the tunnel to get a real feeling of what life was like during the war.
