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.

Ben picked me up at my hotel exactly on time. I had an amazing day at Cu Chi with all thanks to Ben. He is the best tour guide, very knowledgable and smart. He knows his history very well. Very safe motorcyclist and super cool. Best tour guide. Thank you again. William.


This experience capped our one week stay in Ho Chi Minh City and was easily our favourite part of the trip. Honestly, I'm glad we ended up doing this on our last day as it was a jam packed adventurous day that would have been difficult to top. Our tour guides Ben and Allen were incredibly flexible, informed, and fun and they made the experience all the better. We were a little apprehensive about riding shotgun on the motor bikes but felt so safe and secure from the moment we got on the bikes to the moment we were dropped off. Highly recommend this experience. Exciting tour of the city, great cultural experience, amazing food, and likely new friends along the way. Thanks again Ben and Allen!


Ben and David met us in the morning at our accomodation and off we went on a day on back of bike to Cu Chi Tunnels with more heavy duty helmet and a dust mask for each of us. The day started right with yummy spot of yummy Banh Mi (one with egg and another with pork). Then we solved the great mystery of rice papers, and a short visit to rubber tree forest. Welcome butt and leg break came at a Ca Phe Vong (Hammock cafe) for a sugar cane based cold drink.We got to the quiet end of Cu Chi Tunnels and for the most of the time we were the only tourist and absolutely no tour groups which was fantastic. Avoiding crowd is something we actively try and Ben and David really hit the mark. Exploring the tunnels and learning about the history of the area and tunnel was fascinating. On the last tunnel we chose to exit the long way and David "happily" guided us out the long and windy tunnel. Lovely local lunch followed and heavy rain meant a short snooze on hammock before heading back to HCMC. Ben and David were all things you could ask for; friendly, funny, knowledgable, and reliable. Don't hesitate to book on this trip and have fun!
