  • Walk the historic Cu Chi war tunnels of Ho Chi Minh City
  • Learn the strategy and see impacts of war in the tunnel system
  • Experience life for those who lived below the ground
Ho Chi Minh City was a key location during the Vietnam War, and this strategic tunnel system played a huge part in the Viet Kong’s resistance in the North of the country. This tour gives you the opportunity to walk these underground tunnels, safely renovated and lit for tourism purposes, and learn what life would have been like for those who lived here underground for years upon years.

Throughout the preserved 75km of the approximate original 200km tunnel system you will see all kinds of signs as to how life would have been living below the surface. With schools, hospitals and plenty of sleeping quarters, there were also the difficulties of booby traps for intruders and no shortage of bomb craters that evidence the impact from the war above. We will witness innovative designs and ideas, particularly made for ensuring the residents of the tunnel system were hidden from the enemy above.

With so much history and so many stories, it is lucky we provide you with the most knowledgeable guides available to point out interesting facts and answer your many questions as you wander this impressive maze of underground lairs. We will also chat to local people from the region, and learn more about what life was like then and how things are now. After the tour we head back to Ho Chi Minh City, with a stark reminder of the history and happenings that occurred in the region not all too long ago.

“There were only two of us on the tour, so it was a very personal experience. Given that it was such a long day and long bus ride, it would have been nice if water bottles were provided, similar to other tours we did in Vietnam with other companies, but otherwise the trip was great. We enjoyed the quick stop with the local family to make rice paper and feed the pigs too.”
