Visit the Cu Chi tunnels and learn about Vietnam's history by delving into the underground passageways and firing a real weapon.
At 7:30 am, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Ho Chi Minh, and set off in a minibus to Tan Cang Port. We'll board a boat that will take us to the Cu Chi tunnels, the famous underground passageways built by Vietnamese guerrillas during the war.
On the boat trip, you'll enjoy a small breakfast consisting of a typical dessert, fresh fruit and water as you admire the beauty of the natural surroundings.
After an hour we'll arrive at the Cu Chi tunnels. First, we'll watch a short documentary that will tell us all about why the Viet Cong soldiers built this network of underground passageways, what they were used for and the living conditions inside them. We'll venture through the Vietnamese jungle until we find the secret entrances to the tunnels and make our way inside them, where we'll discover the traps used to deceive the enemy and the bunkers.
When we leave the tunnels, we'll head to the trenches where we'll practice shooting with one of the AK-47s used by the Viet Cong.
We'll recover our energy with some green tea and tapioca. At 11:45 am, we'll head back in the boat to the Tan Cang Port.
Before returning to the hotels, we'll complete the trip with a seven-course traditional meal in a restaurant.
We'll get back to the hotels in Ho Chi Minh at 2 pm.
