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.


Breakfast, drinks, entrance fee, and a delicious family-style Vietnamese lunch are included.


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.

I recommend onetrip to anyone who wants a save, authentic, not too touristy and most of all personal and fun adventures with excellent guides and itinerary! Cu Chi Tunnels: We booked our day trip to the Cu Chi tunnelsystem just the evening before and chose the shared minivan option which runs twice a week. We got super lucky as we were the only two participants we got to enjoy a private tour in a really nice car (very good driver btw). We started the day with a delicious breakfast and coffee at a local place. Then had a quick stop to take picture of a field of drying rice paper and a second stop to see the rubber tree plantation and harvest (not too touristy at all, but quite interesting!). Onetrip visits the tunnel entrance which is NOT the tourist trap so there are less people. This is perfect as you will crawl (or squad) through the tiny tunnels and you don't want anyone freaking out/ pressuring you/ etc. in front or behind you. If you're worried that you will fit in, my boyfriend is 1.85m tall and he managed to fit in just fine (apparently a 2m tall guy managed to fit in as well). I'm not a fan of tiny spaces but I really wanted to see the tunnels and if I can do it, I'm sure that you can too ;) So after exploring the tunnels and surrounding we got to enjoy some delicious tapioca with some sugar-salt-coconut-dip. And also a super delicious local lunch!!!!! We had an amazing day, full of adventure, great food and a lot of interesting information thanks to our tour guide (and new friend:) Ten Dat, who did an amazing job and beyond!!! Student city tour: Dat recommended their free (donation based) city tour to us, which we happily booked to explore Saigon on our last day. I really didn't want to miss the experience of being in a scooter in Vietnam so we decided to do the tour by motorbike. We got picked up (very much on time) by two super nice students- Billy and Mia- , super polite and helpful! They drove very save and made sure that we are comfortable (they had an extra helmet for us). We were provided with the perfect amount of information and it was a very personal and fun tour - we had a great time!

I went on a solo motorbike tour with Tin Tin to the Cu Chi tunnels and I can say with confidence that it was one of the best experiences of my life. I think it goes without saying that being on the back of a motorbike is a must when you’re in Vietnam. Tin Tin first took me to a local coffee shop to start the day and we tried Vietnamese iced coffee along with a vermicelli breakfast. A great way to start the day. Next we stopped at a rice noodle field and then a rubber plantation. These were unexpected stops but appreciated nonetheless. Great photo opportunities. I don’t ruin the Cu Chi Tunnel experience but all I’ll say is that it’s a once in a lifetime experience. Next was a lunch stop at a local restaurant. It was really cool experiencing lunch in a rural type of setting. I would recommend Onetrio and Tin Tin to anybody visiting HCM City. A can’t miss tour.

My partner and I wanted our last day of our Vietnam trip to be a memorable one. We are so happy with our decision to book with onetrip adventures. I had read so many amazing reviews about this tour and had high expectations prior to the trip. We had Jack and Vin as our guides.Both made our first motorbike experience so much fun. They are a fun bunch to hang out with who made this experience meaningful with their knowledge and personal stories they shared about Vietnam’s history. The Cu Chi tunnel experience and the numerous local coffee/food stops has to be the highlight of my trip. If you get a chance to choose your guides, I’d highly recommend Vin and Jack. We felt like we were just hanging out with friends than tour guides. Can’t wait to be back! Thanks for the awesome day boys!
