Itinerary

As this is a private tour, the itinerary is 100% customisable to suit your group needs.

Pickup

Pick up can be arranged at your hotel or wherever you need in Ho Chi Minh City. Hop in our private car and prepare for a 1.5 hour drive to Cu Chi Tunnels.

Activities

Travel back in time by watching documentaries and crawling the famous Tunnels

Start your journey with a documentary film that takes you into the past. Then, you will have the opportunity to crawl short distances through the tight tunnels that were used as a means of getting around during the war. Although they may seem small and tight, the tunnels have been enlarged so visitors can crawl through them, so try and imagine what it must have been like before!

Real fire at the shooting range!

More adventurous travelers may try firing off some rounds from live guns. View the type of weapons that were used at the time of the war and see the war zone where the effects of falling bombs remain visible.

Enjoy local specialties before going home

The land of steel is also famous for a lot of delicious dishes. One of those is tapioca with sesame salt. Have a taste of this traditional dish and a hot cup of tea before heading back to Saigon.

Departure

Around noon, we will say goodbye to Cu Chi Tunnels and go back to Ho Chi Minh City.

Jack is very knowledgeable about Vietnamese history and talks about in an engaging way. My family and I took a guided tour of Cu Chi Tunnels with Jack. If you are going to visit the tunnels, I highly recommend getting a guide and from my experience, Jack was perfect for it! Ask him about culture, history, day-to-day life in Vietnam:

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

There are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum of 8 people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximizes your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What does my payment cover?

Your payment for this trip covers private transportation, a fluent, English-speaking guide, lunch, entrance fees, bottled water, fruit tasting, and all activities. Personal expenses such as extra food, drink, and tips are not included.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

Our cancellation and refund policy is simple: if for any reason the tour cannot take place, you will get a full refund. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure our travelers are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than 8 people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.

My question is not listed here. What should I do?
