Private Cu Chi Tunnels Half-Day from Ho Chi Minh City

(Ask for a specific departure time and meeting location.)

Cu Chi Tunnels is a legendary underground system with over 220 kilometers of tunnels that is a must-see for both Vietnamese and foreign visitors interested in Vietnam War history. The tunnels are now considered a Vietnam historical structure and a heroic district for their role in the resistance to US forces during the Vietnam War.

The tunnels are about 60 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City. In a private vehicle, the tour departs from our office or from your hotel. Enjoy the scenery as we pass through lush, endless rice fields and rivers teeming with ducks and water buffaloes. You might find it difficult to believe that Cu Chi was once a “free target zone” before it was nearly completely destroyed by wartime bombs and mines.

You will have the opportunity to walk through some of the tunnels, discover hidden corners, and imagine what life was like for the resistance soldiers once we arrive. Try cooking with the smokeless stoves that Vietnamese soldiers used to cook during the war. You can even sample some of the foods that the soldiers ate. You can even try your hand at shooting an AK-47, one of the weapons used during the war, if you’re feeling brave or curious.
Return to the city; the tour will end at your hotel.

At the height of the American-Vietnamese War, the Cu Chi tunnel system covered a distance of more than 250 kilometers, from Saigon to the Cambodian border, and was 3 levels deep. The network included numerous trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers, and kitchens.

Today the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction giving visitors a unique experience and a feeling of underground life during the war. The tunnels have been widened for the benefit of visitors. For those interested, there’s an opportunity to fire off rounds from an AK47 or MK16 at the nearby rifle range.

On this half-day tour, you’ll be picked up at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City at around 08:00-08:30 before heading out on the 1-hour 45-minute drive to Cu Chi.

The drive will take you through pleasant countryside and rubber forest. When you arrive at Cu Chi you’ll see a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were ingeniously constructed, and then spend the next hour exploring the maze of tunnels. Various mantraps and the remains of an American tank are on display. You’ll see a number of bomb craters made by 500-pound bombs dropped by B52s.

The tour will end at approximately 13:30.
