DescriptionEnjoy a pickup at your accommodation, then set off through the hustle and bustle of HCMC’s extraordinary streets. Your tour begins as soon as you’re aboard your private transport, where a knowledgeable guide will give you some information on Vietnam’s political history in preparation for the tunnels. Your first stop is the Liberated Area, where you can see life of Viet Cong guerrilla fighters during the most intense time of the war, from 1961-1972. Wander around here, and imagine how peaceful it was despite the raging war. Then, keep moving to the Ben Duoc Tunnels. Upon arriving at Ben Duoc Tunnels, you'll enter into the old base of the Viet Cong. You will be surrounded by thick forest, shaded by beautiful trees and bamboo. Your tour guide will show you around the location while explaining all about the magnificent and cleverly built tunnels. Prepare to be amazed by the cunning traps and the sheer resourcefulness of the Viet Cong. From camouflaged entrances into the tunnels and bamboo booby traps amongst the forest, to the intricate ventilation system, you’ll see it all! Now, it’s your turn to experience everything up close! Embrace this amazing experience of descending underground and exploring the tunnels.The Viet Cong were particularly small and slim, so the tunnels were originally built so they could just fit in. Nowadays, for educational purposes, the tunnels have been widened to accommodate every type of traveler. Nevertheless, prepare for a snug adventure as you move through the underground networks. To end your Cu Chi tunnel experience, you’ll get to learn about the amazing hidden kitchens that were inside the tunnels, and even try out some typical Viet Cong food. You’ll also get the chance to shoot guns, such as bazookas and AK47s. This comes at an additional cost. After what promises to be an unforgettable and memorable morning, enjoy a delicious lunch at a local restaurant before your journey back to Ho Chi Minh City. The team will drop you off at your accommodation, or any spots within downtown at your request.
