      Cu Chi Tunnels
      Stop: 7 hours - Admission included
      Built by local fighters during the Indochina conflict, the Cu Chi tunnels served as a base from which the Viet Cong could operate from close to the Southern Vietnamese capital. For this Ho Chi Minh city tour, leave the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City to explore one of the relics from one of the most significant local historical events in recent memory. Journey takes 2 hours west towards the Cambodian border. Ongoing way to the Cu Chi tunnels, we can see local life in the area, both past and present. Learn about their lives, culture, and customs and get an insight into the recent past through local eyes. Continue on to the Cu Chi tunnels. The location of the tunnels was of significant strategic importance: they are at the end of the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail, and within striking distance of the southern Vietnam capital. Initial construction started in 1948 when the Viet Minh required somewhere to hide from French air attacks, and by 1965, the tunnel complex was estimated to consist of 200 km of tunnels. It included, hospitals, schools, meeting rooms, kitchens, and sleeping quarters. Life was difficult for the inhabitants, and to protect against outside intruders, booby traps were laid throughout the complex. Today, the Vietnamese government has preserved approximately 75 km of the Cu Chi tunnels as a memorial park, and in some areas the tunnels have been widened and low powered lights installed so that tourists can now fit through the complex. Your local guide will take you on a fascinating tour of the Cu Chi tunnels, where you will learn more about the conditions the people lived in, the hardships they faced, and the amazing ingenuity employed to maintain life in the tunnels. We walk past huge bomb craters - evidence of the heavy bombing campaigns in the region during the Indochina conflict, discover hidden entrances right beneath your feet, wander past tiny little chimneys in the ground that dispersed smoke from the underground kitchens, sample some of the simple cuisine that local fighters would have survived on, and have an opportunity to venture into the tunnels and explore the complex. You will end this historical Ho Chi Minh City tour with a greater understanding of the local impacts of the conflicts of the 20th century. On the way back, we will drop you off at War Remnants Museum, Ben Thanh Market or your hotel in District 1.

      Mekong delta adventure
      Our adventure into the Mekong Delta with Luc was great fun and very interesting. We learnt a lot about the history and culture of the area while seeing the life of the people, the islands and city of Can Tho. The food was fantastic and dinner by the river was a highlight.

      Lots of fun.
      Going to the markets with our chef was such an amazing opportunity. We learnt so much about different Vietnamese foods and how they are used. Our cooking class was fun and informative teaching us many skills. We made one of the best meals we have eaten in Vietnam. We will certainly be making use of our cook book to make these meals at home.

      Fantastic Tour Guide
      Traveling with tour guide Hong to Cu Chi Tunnels & Mekong Delta was an enlightening journey. Hong's insightful narratives illuminated the history of Cu Chi, while his connections allowed us to engage deeply with local artisans in the Mekong Delta. His warmth and expertise made the trip seamless and memorable. From exploring underground passages to witnessing traditional craftsmanship, every moment was enriched by Hong's passion for sharing Vietnam's culture and heritage. Highly recommend his guidance for an immersive and authentic experience that leaves a lasting impression.

      Wonderful Mekong Delta and floating market experience
      Thank you for a great 2 days. Luc was a fantastic guide providing us with many insights into the Mekong Delta region and its history. Our lunch and dinner were very tasty and plentiful in enjoyable environments. A highlight was our boat ride to the floating market and experiencing the many vendors. I would recommend this tour to others wanting a Mekong Delta and Floating market experience.

      Special and Memorable Evening
      Our last night in Saigon was very memorable with a visit to the Water Puppet Show and dinner cruise on the Saigon River. Our guide for the night did a wonderful job making us feel like we were VIPs. He was very attentive and made our evening even more special and memorable. Would highly recommend this tour.
