Departure Time

8:00 AM
Begin with pickup at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, then travel to Cu Chi in a private, air-conditioned vehicle. Learn the history of the tunnels as you drive: the Cu Chi network were developed during the war for independence from the French, then expanded during the war with the United States, known in Vietnam as the American War. Explore secret trap doors that hid the entrances from outsiders, and find underground kitchens, living areas, and meeting rooms. Find out about life in the tunnels during the wars, and how they were used to launch the decisive Tet Offensive in 1968.

After visiting the tunnels, return to Ho Chi Minh City to see the Reunification Palace, where the war came to an end in 1975 after negotiations between northern and southern leaders. The former Presidential Palace is now preserved as a museum, with underground bunkers, and displays of war-era artifacts.

Make a final stop at the War Remnants Museum, whose exhibits document the human tragedies of the two decade-long war. Take in exhibits that depict civilian casualties and the long-term effects of the war alongside displays of tanks, airplanes, and weapons. This tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.
Stop At:  
Cu Chi Tunnels
In the morning, your guide and drive will be waiting for you in the hotel lobby to start a comfortable ride in a north-western direction towards Cu Chi. Just 70 kilometres outside Ho Chi Minh City the Cu Chi tunnels are one of the best-preserved examples of Vietnamese warfare ingenuity. Built by resistance fighters to the French occupation, and later further expanded by the Viet Cong as war raged across Vietnam during the 1960s and 1970s. A vast underground network of tunnels, you will marvel at their ingenuity and resilience with various secret trapdoors, underground kitchens, living areas and meeting rooms. For those preferring to remain above ground, there is ample opportunity to view excavated areas from above. A local lunch is included before heading back to Ho Chi Minh City.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At:  
Independence Palace
In the afternoon, we make our way back to Ho Chi Minh City and visit the former Presidential Palace. Now called Reunification Palace, it was here where the war came to an end in 1975. Visits to this palace museum include seeing to the underground communications bunkers, headquarters for the Saigon Government during the American War.
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
War Remnants Museum
At the end of the day, you will visit the War Remnants Museum with its display of grim realities of the war. Formerly known as the War Crimes Museum, the War Remnants Museum is by far the most well-known museum in Saigon, exhaustively documenting the horrors of the long Vietnam- American war. Newly housed in a modern building, exhibits include explicit photographs of civilian casualties and a collection of tanks, planes and weapons in the yard outside. Within a day's drive, we will cover several attractions well-worth the trip and that is a constant reminder about the Vietnam past. By the end of the day, we will transfer you back to your hotel.

The tour was very informative and well organised. Plenty of time to take in what life must have been like during the war and living in and around the tunnels. Lunch a set menu - which we had not appreciated, but was pointed out by our guide - very filling and tasty! The Remnants War Museum was interesting as was the Reunification Palace - both worth a visit. The Guide Martin was extremely knowledgeable and kept the pace just right.
