The Cu Chi Tunnels are an incredible network of connecting underground tunnels that played an integral role during the Vietnam (American) War.
Hop on our two-wheels and head outside the city center to see authentic local life while freshening up on the history of the war and experience what it’s like living inside the tiny tunnels.
Food, history, scenery, culture, and local industries, we cover it all! It’s definitely what we would do if we were visiting Saigon for the first time.
7:00 AM for Motorcycle / 8:00 AM for Private Car
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!
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.
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.
