Discover the secrets of Ho Chi Minh City, the old Saigon, and the Cu Chi tunnels with this private tour in English. Explore Vietnam's most populous city, where history and modernity, wartime memories, and skyscrapers coexist.
Ho Chi Minh City Private Tour
We'll pick you up at 8 am, and begin our private guided tour of Ho Chi Minh city. First stop is Independence Palace also known as The Palace of Reunification: a famous monument in Ho Chi Minh city, work of the architect Ngô Viết Thụ.
We'll continue exploring the city, taking in its typical buildings from the French colonial era, including Notre Dame Cathedral and the building which once was the Saigon Central Post Office, passing through the War Remnants Museum, where we will learn more about the Indochina Wars.
Next, we'll stop for lunch in a local restaurant, heading northwards by bus in the direction of the Cu Chi Tunnels, a trip that takes about an hour and a half. Before exploring the subterranean world, we'll see a brief presentation about how they were built and how they were used to escape the harsh conditions of war.
Within the tunnels you'll find kitchens, bedrooms, weapons factories, field hospitals and command centres, allowing for guerillas to live below ground for extended periods of time. And you'll see the famous traps made by the Viet Cong. Then after the visit, unwind and recover some energy with a special tea.
Then we'll return to your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, arriving at 4 pm.
This tour includes a pick-up service from Ho Chi Minh District 1 (Lê Duẩn, Hai Bà Trưng, Thi Sách, Thái Văn Lung, Tôn Đức Thắng Mạc Đĩnh Chi, Lê Thánh Tôn, Lý Tự Trọng, Bến Thành Area, Nguyễn Văn Cừ).
If your hotel is outside this area, please make your way to the meeting point at 220, De Tham, District 1, Ho Chi Minh.
On rainy days, it's not recommended to take the tour for safety reasons. Should it be especially rainy, the tour will be cancelled.
