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.

This was my second experience using Onetrip and I cannot recommend this company enough! My friend and I took a day trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels and our guides Dave and Justin were awesome -- super funny with great energy. My friend and I had never ridden on motorcycles before and Dave and Justin made us feel very comfortable and safe. If you have ever experienced the craziness of driving in Ho Chi Minh traffic, feeling safe is quite a feat! All of the stops along the route to the tunnels were fun/informative. They even stopped so we could do a photoshoot on the motorcycles (haha sounds ridiculous but the photos turned out really great!). The tunnels themselves were very interesting and a cool experience to go through. I also may have had the best lunch of my whole Vietnam trip during this tour. At the end of the day, our guides surprised us with a video slideshow they had made of photos from our trip to the tunnels. All in all, this was one of the highlights of my trip to Vietnam!I'm sure there are dozens of companies that can take you to the tunnels, but I doubt you would get such a personalized tour with guides that go above and beyond to make sure you get the most out of your trip!


our guide will was very informative and nice. my birthday was coming up and he bought me a cake. will recommend


Jeff and Alan took my boyfriend and I on a truly educational adventure! They were super friendly and fun, and we had a great day together. One the way to the tunnels we had a delicious breakfast and got to see the countryside up close. Visiting the tunnels and learning more about the war and living circumstances was enlightening to say the least. We always felt safe riding behind them. And they happily accommodated our vegan / vegetarian diets (The food was great!) Highly recommend onetrip and look forward to the Mekong Delta tour with them next time!
