About the tour
Cu Chi Tunnels is a well-known and “wish-to-come” historical site for those who travel to Southern Vietnam. If your budget time is limited though you even want to learn more about the Vietnam war, the half-day tour to Cu Chi Tunnels by speedboat is a perfect choice for you. Different from other classic tours to Cu Chi Tunnels, the speedboat tour not only helps you to understand the war remnant but also offers the chance to explore the daily life of Saigonese with a brand-new view.
We will pick you up at your hotel at 7:00 and then transfer you to Bach Dang Pier where you will embark on a luxury speedboat heading towards Cu Chi Tunnels. While the boat is cruising through the original landscapes along Saigon riverbanks, you will be served with fresh seasonal fruits and soft drinks and observe the local lifestyle of Saigoneses.
Arriving at Cu Chi Tunnels (Dinh Pier), a documentary film about the tunnels during wartime will be introduced first.
Afterward, we will have a soft walk into the jungle to visit the traps, the secret entrance, the bunkers, and the underground hideouts. There offers you a special and fantastic chance to relax by shooting real guns and real bullets at the rifle range as well as to witness the rice-paper (spring roll skin) making. You can even try to crawl into the Cu Chi Tunnels.
Take a rest with green tea and tapioca, the main food served during the wartime, to learn more about the life of Viet Cong in the war.
Saying goodbye to the historic land before having traditional Vietnamese lunch in the romantic riverside restaurant on the way back. You can choose to come back to Saigon downtown by shuttle bus or by our return speedboat to Bach Dang Pier.
