Cu Chi Tunnels is one of the great highlights for Vietnam holiday. It was used to play a vital part in the Vietnam War. They allowed the Viet Cong to control a large rural area under the ground. This half-day trip of no more than 12 pax is perfect for those who want to see the tunnels without spending a majority of the day away from the city (during Tet Season, max group size is 25 pax). VIP options is also available with luxury transportation (Limo etc...) (max group size of 7). Ben Duoc Tunnels (less touristy route) is available. Student with Student ID Card option is also available with discounted price.
