Travel like a VIP and arrive hours before the large bus tour groups to the famous Cu Chi Tunnel historical site.

Enjoy a window into traditional Mekong river life and wonderful photo opportunities.

After a short documentary, your guide will lead you through the historic Cu Chi Tunnels, dug by resourceful guerrilla fighters to provide communication and supply routes, hospitals, food and weapon caches and living quarters during numerous conflicts.

A traditional Vietnamese lunch or dinner of local specialties like lemongrass chicken and caramelized clay pot pork will be served after your visit to the tunnels.
