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.

After previously booking with Onetrip for a tour in Nha Trang (which was incredible) there was no question as to what tour company we would go with to experience the Cu Chi Tunnels. Amazing experience from start to finish. The guides were knowledgeable and went out of their way to make this a great day- including filming and taking photos of our experiences which were sent to us at the end of the day. What I love most about Onetrip is that unlike other tours, the entire day is just as enjoyable as the 'highlight' (for example, the Cu Chi Tunnels). They do not just drive you to the Cu Chi tunnels, have lunch and drop you off- the whole day is jam-packed with other cultural experiences. The spot we were taken to at the Cu Chi tunnels we had all to ourselves, unlike the other tour companies which take you to the closest and busiest area. Make sure you book all of your tours with Onetrip if you want the real Vietnam experience.


We had an amazing experience with Dave & David, amazing tour guides and the best motorbike drivers in town! We booked the tour last minute but everything was very well organised!We enjoyed every minute and will certainly recommend the trip!!!! Thanks a lot for everything! You absolutely deserve to be rated as number 1 on TripAdvisor, great job!


Our family of 5 from New Zealand had Dave, Henry, Derek, Ed and Aaron. They were so accommodating to all of us, happy to help us with anything. I would recommend this guided tour to anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh as it is the best way to get amongst the Vietnamese culture. The guides were extremely knowledgable and professional. We saw many other larger groups on the tunnel tour and not one was as personable as ours. Henry even stood in the tunnels and fanned us all in the 35 degree heat, now thats impressive!! The trip cost covers food, hand sanitisers, wipes, water etc and a even a video of your day!! They thought of all the small things that we would've forgotten if we had travelled to the tunnels in a larger tour group. We can't thank them enough for all they did for us kiwis!
