Escape the bustle of the city to explore the rural scenery and the famous Cu Chi Tunnels in Southern Vietnam. Step in the shoes of a Viet Cong fighter, as you climb through an impressive 155-mile (250-km) long tunnel network and visit a typical gun shooting area.
Beginning the trip, our guide will pick you up at the hotel and then depart for Cu Chi tunnels from Saigon. Visitors will arrive at Cu Chi tunnels after a drive of 1,5 hours. Along the way, watch as the frantic city scenery transitions to a more peaceful, rural setting. Witness passing rice paddy farms, quaint roadside vendors, and increasingly lush greenery.
Upon arrival, our tour guide will give you an overview of Cu Chi and its legendary history. Cu Chi Tunnels is some of the most famous underground networks of pathways, hideouts, sleeping quarters, meeting rooms, hospitals, and Hoang Cam Stove. These narrow tunnels provide barely enough space for a single person to crawl their way through, though some are now wider to accommodate visitors. Also learn that the mere 10–13 feet (3–4 m) thick level of upper soil can support the bearing weight of a 55 ton (50 mT) tank and the explosive damage of bombs.
After that, watch a documentary film about the tunnels to know about the tunnels’ history and how fierce the war was in the area.
Then, travelers can try delicious manioc which was the main food for guerilla-warriors in Cu Chi during the war. Visitors can try to fire off an AK47 or M16 or machine guns at the nearby shooting range. Leave Cu Chi tunnels and go back to Saigon center. before further exploring the tunnel’s trap doors and underground quarters. Then make a visit to huge bomb craters left from the war, the Garment-factory Ammunition and Souvenir Shops, and the Museum of Self-made Weapons. Get the exhilarating opportunity to fire a M-15, AK-47, and a carbine rifle at the National Defense Sports Shooting Range for a true wartime experience. Finally, go back to Ho Chi Minh hotel at around 2:30 PM (for morning session) or around 6:30 PM (for afternoon session).
At the end of the tour, the car will take you back to the hotel.

We visited Ho Chi Minh City. An excellent 1-day tour of the city, with SaigonGlobal Tour, Ms. Ly, who was really knowledgeable, to temples, the Cathedral, old Post Office, Market and War Remnants Museum. We couldn’t have been more impressed, with all our many questions answered during the tour.
Such friendly and knowledgeable people who were able to answer all our questions about the city and the history from the terrible war.
Overall a good tour though we didn’t manage to visit Ben Thanh Market which was closed during the Tet Holidays.
