About the Tour

The Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta full day tour takes you to visit Cu Chi tunnels and My Tho city, Tien Giang province, respectively.

The trip starts from Cu Chi and ends in My Tho.

Cu Chi Tunnels is a famous destination located in the northwest of Ho Chi Minh City, about 70km from the city center. This is a legendary place in the resistance war against America of the Vietnamese people. Dubbed the “land of steel”, Cu Chi Tunnels has a tunnel system of more than 200km, which is considered an “impregnable underground village”.

Cu Chi Tunnels attracts many tourists when visiting Ho Chi Minh City, especially international tourists. Today, some of the tunnels are renovated and opened more widely for visitors to get in and out more easily.
