Once we finish collecting all tour members and get everyone on board our comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. We will then set off through the hustle and bustle of HCMC’s extraordinary streets. Your tour begins as soon as you’re aboard the bus, your knowledgeable guide will give you some information on Vietnam’s political history, in preparation for the tunnels. As we continue our journey out of the city, we will briefly stop at a local rubber plantation before heading to the tunnels.
Upon arriving at Ben Dinh Tunnels, we’ll go through the subway and enter into the old base of the Viet Cong. You will be surrounded by thick forest, shaded by beautiful trees and bamboo. Your tour guide will show you around the location while explaining all about the magnificent, clever tunnels. Prepare to be amazed by the cunning traps and the sheer resourcefulness of the Viet Cong. From camouflaged entrances into the tunnels and bamboo booby traps amongst the forest to the intricate ventilation system, you’ll see it all!
Experience The Tunnels For Yourself!
Now, it’s your turn to experience them up close! Embrace this amazing experience of dipping underground and exploring the tunnels.The Viet Cong were particularly small and slim so the tunnels were originally so they could just fit in. Nowadays, for educational purposes the tunnels have been widened slightly. Prepare for a snug adventure as you move through them.
To end our Cu Chi tunnel experience, you’ll get to learn about the amazing hidden kitchens that were inside the tunnels and even try out some typical Viet Cong food. As we move through the unique location you’ll also get the chance to shoot some guns, such as bazookas, AK47’s etc. This comes at an additional cost.
Fantastic Pho & Back To The City
After what promises to be an unforgettable and memorable morning, we’ll stop for a delicious bowl of pho at a popular place for locals. This famous Vietnamese dish comes with beef and chicken options. Once we’ve fuelled up, we will head back into the heart of Ho Chi Minh City.
Such a great experience; learning all about the history and climbing through the tunnels. The guide was so wonderful, he answered all of our questions in such detail and made sure we had a good time.
