The Experience

The Cu Chi Tunnels are an incredible network of connecting underground tunnels that played an integral role during the Vietnam (American) War.

Hop on the back of our two-wheels with our trained guides and head outside the city center to see the authentic local life while freshening up on the history of the war and experience what it’s like living inside the complex tunnel system.

Food, history, scenery, culture, and local industries- we cover it all! The most popular day trip destination for anyone visiting Saigon done right: Off the beaten path, personalized and adventurous.


Detailed itinerary

You can choose from three different options to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels: by riding pillion on a motorcycle, taking a private car, or on a social adventure by shared minivan.

7:00 AM FOR MOTORCYCLE / 8:00 AM FOR PRIVATE CAR AND SHARED MINI VAN

We will pick you up at your accommodation. From there, we will head out of the city zig zagging through Saigon’s crazy traffic into a local suburb for a quick Vietnamese coffee and breakfast.

After breakfast we head toward the direction of the Cu Chi Tunnels, stopping by local businesses along the way to learn about the local crafts and industries, such as rice noodle production and natural rubber extraction.

From there it’s a straight drive to the tunnels where our guides will provide you with an in-depth history of the war, and the role that these tunnels played. You will have the opportunity to crawl inside the tunnels...just watch out for the bats!

1:30 PM

After all that crawling, you'll appreciate a big traditional Vietnamese meal with a large spread of local dishes. After lunch, a quick siesta will be in order before heading back to the city.

4:30 - 5:00 PM

We will arrive back at your accommodation. Don't forget to give our guides a hug and keep in touch. It'll likely be an experience to remember, and a new friend made.


All-inclusive

Breakfast, drinks, entrance fee, and a delicious family-style Vietnamese lunch are included.


Important

Although the private car option is available, we recommend taking the motorcycle option as we think it is the best way to experience our Vietnamese culture. On a bike, we can stop whenever and wherever you want, whether it’s at a local football game or by the side of the road for a butt-break (yes, you will appreciate the butt-breaks!). The freedom is incomparable to anything else you've ever experienced.

For those with back problems or family with elderly or young children, then we recommend the private car option. Although, we have had a courageous 6-year old having a blast, loving every bit of the adventure.

We also have a minivan group tour option which can have up to 12 guests for a more social experience.

Please note that there is a 30% cancellation fee for any cancellation made less than 24 hours prior to the tour date since we have to book many services in advance. Otherwise, there is a 5% transaction fee for bookings that are canceled 24 hours prior to the departure in order to cover for transaction processing costs.

I really enjoyed my trip to the cu chi tunnels with the fantastic Jeff. He was so friendly, talkative and fun!! The tunnels were cool and his knowledge made the experience even better. We also looked at a noodle factory, rice and buffalo farms and experienced traveling around HCMC by bike!! I can’t thank him and Onetrip enough a very special experience!!


We decided to have a full immersion by taking a motorbike tour to the cu chi tunnels. Our drivers arrived over punctually to the hotel and the day already began with a couple of jokes and very relaxed atmosphere. Driving through HCMC was great experience. On the way to the tunnels Ed and Jeff made several great stops to show some more Vietnamese cultural and day to day live. During the tunnel visit they showed very detailed Historical know how. All the food on the tour was excellent. Language problems did not occur as both speak excellent English. Also their driving skills in rush hour traffic is excellent did not feel insecure or unsafe for just a second. We can only highly recommend the tour even if it is more pricey than others.We will take a great souvenir home! Thank you once again to Ed and Jeff!!!!


I made a decision to use Onetrip Motorcycle service instead of car because I would like to have a bit of adventure and something local due to the fact that Vietnamese people always ride a motorbike for the commute. I had no regret at all to pay a bit higher price and use Onetrip. At first, I was cautious for safety because it was on the motorbike, but I thought it should be fine. In general, people don't ride that fast in Vietnam. It was enjoyable and very interesting to travel along small streets to get a bit closer to nature or local areas instead of the main road. My local guide, Dave, was so friendly and was trying to help and made sure that I was find along the journey. I also met a couple of Onetrip's customers and we joined the trip together. All riders were so friendly and very helpful. Their English is quite good. Language is not an issue at all. Apart from Cu Chi tunnels, I had to say I love the restaurant for lunch. It was seriously delicious.... Still missing it. In short, their service for my journey was safe, fun, reliable, and very friendly. Dave and other riders even surprised me with a big birthday cake in the middle of nowhere for my birthday celebration! It was really amazing and unforgettable moments! Thumbs up guys!
