Departure Time

8:00 AM
Once your cruise ship docks at Ho Chi Minh City Cruise Port, you’ll greet your guide and head straight to the Cu Chi Tunnels, a 120-mile (200-km) network of tunnels used as a means of shelter from French air raids by the Viet Kong, an organisation of communist guerrillas.

Learn about how communities functioned below the ground and see the remnants of schools, hospitals, and living quarters inhabited by local residents. Please note, the tunnels are narrow and dark and may not be suitable for travelers prone to claustrophobia.

Following a traditional Vietnamese lunch, embark on a whistle-stop tour of Ho Chi Minh City’s highlights. See the grand Reunification Palace, the Gothic twin bell towers of Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica, the Central Post Office, and the War Remnants Museum.

After sampling authentic beef or vegetarian pho for dinner, your tour concludes with port drop-off.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Cu Chi Tunnels
Pick up at Sai Gon port. Start the day with a visit to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels. Stretching over 250 kilometers, Cu Chi is one of the most famous and historical aspects of war in Vietnam. The tunnel system was created in 1948 to assist the Viet Minh as they fought the French for independence and became legendary during the 1960s in playing a vital role in the Vietnam War by allowing the Viet Cong (communist guerrillas) to control large rural areas, just 65 kilometers away from Ho Chi Minh City. This system of tunnels consists of hospitals, rooms, kitchens, store areas, and working rooms underground. This tunnel was excavated on the area with clay mixing with laterite. So this tunnel is rather durable and stable. The air is transferred to the tunnels through ventilation holes.

    Very unhappy as were the other guests. The tour was to included the tunnels. When we boarded the bus we were told that that was from the outer port and was too far away. We still had time to stop at a jewelry manufacture plant and wait an hour before they would show us the hidden door out and on to the bus. We saw little for the city and arrived back to the ship an hour early.
