What to Expect
Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is a frenetic place of markets, streets clogged with scooters, sidewalk food stalls, office blocks, and shopping malls. It is Vietnam’s economic powerhouse with a rate of development over the last few years that has been remarkable.

As you’ll experience on this full-day tour, Saigon is an exciting and exotic city where the pace of life never dims. Ho Chi Minh City is now looking forward with great optimism after a tumultuous 20th century.

The tour begins at your hotel as you head out to visit Saigon’s historical landmarks including the 1880s General Post Office and the late 19th-century Notre Dame Cathedral, located in a peaceful part of the city.

Next you’ll visit the Reunification Palace, the headquarters of the Saigon government during the American War. You’ll also stop at the War Remnants Museum, where you’ll see displays of war relics.

Enjoy lunch at a local noodle soup restaurant called Presidential Pho 2000, named after former US President Bill Clinton made a surprise visit that year.

After lunch you’ll travel from Ho Chi Minh City to the Cu Chi Tunnels. This vast network of tunnels, stretching over 150 kilometers, was built by the Viet Cong during the battles for the South. The tunnels are a sobering insight into the dedication of the Viet Cong, who lived almost entirely underground in the narrow and claustrophobic spaces.

Watch a brief introductory video, followed by a walk through the reserve. See a chilling demonstration of the traps and weapons used against the American GIs.

The Cu Chi tunnels have been widened and cleaned for western visitors, however it can still be dark and claustrophobic inside, so please keep this in mind if you do not like enclosed spaces.

At the site you’ll have the opportunity to shoot a range of guns, such as the AK47 and M16. If you decide to do this, please be aware that the level of noise is extremely high and although ear muffs are available, they may not provide the level of protection required.

Late in the afternoon you’ll return to Saigon, where the tour ends.
