Half-Day Cu Chi Tunnels from Ho Chi Minh City by Luxury Speedboat

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Zip along the Saigon River by luxury speedboat to the Cu Chi Tunnels, round-trip from Ho Chi Minh City. Select an early or late morning departure and enjoy a peek at traditional life along the riverbanks on this half-day tour. Then descend underground with a guide into a vast network built by resourceful guerrilla fighters during the Vietnam War to provide supply routes, food and weapon caches, living quarters and hospitals. Breakfast and lunch, or dinner (depending on departure selection), and unlimited refreshments are included with round-trip transport. Numbers are limited to 14 to ensure a personalized experience on this small-group tour.
  • Make the journey to the Cu Chi Tunnels more interesting on a guided tour
  • Avoid a boring coach bus ride and travel by luxury speed boat instead 
  • Explore the subterranean Cu Chi Tunnels in a small group limited to 14 people
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off from Ho Chi Minh City are included
What to Expect
After hotel pickup, get transferred to Ho Chi Minh Pier to board a luxury speedboat destined for the Cu Chi Tunnels. During the journey, travel down the Saigon River while revitalizing with breakfast or lunch, depending on the departure time selected at checkout. On arrival at the Cu Chi Tunnels, watch a short introductory film before descending into underground bunkers that functioned as a city during the Vietnam War (known as the American War by the Vietnamese). After emerging from the tunnels, enjoy a Vietnamese lunch or dinner before returning to Ho Chi Minh by speedboat. This Cu Chi Tunnels tour concludes with hotel drop-off.
