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.

This trip went beyond our expectations. Our guides- Kingsley, Ed, and K- were great. They made us feel comfortable on the motorbikes and explained everything thoroughly. This definitely was more personal and engaging than your typical tours. The food was good and didn't feel like you're just being carted off to a restaurant meant for tourists only. They also made an excellent video of our day towards the end to cap it all off. Would highly recommend this (and OneTrip) to those who want to experience something a bit off the beaten path.


This was the first tour we took of two (we originally planned for one, but had such an amazing time that we ended up doing the tunnels as well). We did the motorbikes and we are so glad we did! Jeff, Derek, and Travis picked us up at our AirBnB and immediately treated us like we were close friends! Hanging out with the three of them was an absolute blast-- now add in the history, the culture, the food, the insider experiences that we were able to be part of for the day, and it was a once in a lifetime experience that we'll never forget. Jeff took incredible photos and compiled a video for us that was so good that I still can't believe we get to keep it! By the way, the tour guides take beautiful photos for you and share them all, so you'll always have these memories. That's a huge bonus on top of everything else they do for you. Not only did we avoid the crowds, but I never once felt pressured to buy anything. Hands-down best tour we've ever been on, and I 100% plan on using them again as they expand their company! Thank you!


We were met at our hotel by our charming and knowledgeable guide San and his expert driver. Our tour group was small and our fellow travellers were warm and friendly. We got to experience fantastic local food and as well as the amazing and confronting Cu Chi tunnels, San also showed us some interesting local enterprises along the way. We saw a family noodle making business and how rubber was harvested. This tour gives a tiny insight into the daily life of Vietnam and is fascinating. All of the people we met were very friendly, helpful and gracious. San was a very good tour guide. The travel was comfortable and air conditioned. The traffic was crazy by our standards but we felt very safe with the experienced driver. Thanks San, we loved our day and the tour was a fantastic insight.
