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.


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.

If you wish for a more social setting, opt for the shared minivan option. This is only run once or twice per week and when booking, the calendar will indicate the days it is available.

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 tour is completely worth your time and money. We had a group of 4 people and decided to go with the car option to visit Cu Chi tunnels. We were met on time at 8am by our guide Dat. Dat immediately made us feel comfortable by telling us about what we were doing today and open to any of our questions about Vietnam. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Vietnam as well as current day Vietnam. The tour took us to get coffee and breakfast before we got our day started. We then went to a local rice paper farm and then a rubber tree farm to see how those things were made. We also got sugar cane juice on the way to the tunnels. We arrived at the Cu Chi tunnels and got to crawl around in the tunnels. There were many things to see and learn here. Onetrip also brings you to a part of the tunnels that were not over ran with tourists. We were almost the only people at these tunnels. After the tunnels we had lunch at a local restaurant. All the meals and admission fees were included with the tourThis trip is a must do when in Vietnam! Thanks Dat!


You won't be disappointed booking the Cu Chi tunnels tour. Booking online is very fast and easy. As for our tour, my wife and I did the motorbike tour with our awesome guides Nhat and Ky. They were both very friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and great drivers! The frequent rest stops and side trips are definitely welcome when traveling on a moto. The tunnels themselves are very interesting, and they take you the less touristy part of the complex. The home cooked lunch was also very memorable. It was great talking to Nhat and Ky during the whole tour. We couldn't be happier and will definitely be doing the Hoi An tours with Onetrip.


It's not just about checking out the Cu Chi Tunnels! It's a whole day of exploring the Vietnamese countryside. Yes, it's a long day on the back of a motorcycle but what fun! My motorcycle driver picked me up in the morning and took me out for Vietnamese coffee and breakfast first and then we hit the road. Along the way we stopped off at rice paddy fields to see how they make the rice paper as well as a rubber tree farm. He also let me pose with the motorcycle like I was driving it. The Cu Chi Tunnels tour itself was OK. Felt short considering how long it took to get there but I still enjoyed the entire day. On the way back we had lunch, which happened to coincide with a passing rainstorm, and we took a little nap in the hammocks. Highly recommend this adventure.
