An immense chain of subterranean passageways stretches underneath Vietnam. The dark, dingy Cu Chi Tunnels are a chilling reminder of the events of war. Discover their secrets on this guided tour from Ho Chi Minh City.
Cu Chi Tunnels Tour Itinerary
Having been picked up from your accommodation in Ho Chi Minh City on the day of your tour, you'll be taken to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, located about an hour's drive away.
What strategies did the Vietcong use during the war in Vietnam? Where did they hide from US soldiers? How did they communicate messages and send supplies? The answers to many of these questions are found at Cu Chi, in the enormous network of underground passageways that lies not just around Ho Chi Minh, but under much of the country.
As you explore the tunnels, you'll see terrifying traps used to capture the enemy. They've been disactivated now, but... we still wouldn't like to get too close! Next to the entrance to the tunnels, there's a further exhibit of equipment left over from the war, including an old tank.
After experiencing this unforgettable trip through history, you'll be returned to your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.
For the most daring among you, there is the opportunity to shoot real ammunition using one of the AK 47s that the Vietcong used, or an M16 rifle used by the Americans.
When we leave the tunnels, we'll reach the trenches where you can enjoy your target practice experience (not included, bullets are approximately €2.30 each).
