Full description
After being picked up at your hotel, depart for Cu Chi tunnels, a 1.5 hour drive away. Start the tour with an overview introduction of Cu Chi and its legendary history by your tour guide. A documentary film about the tunnels will explain more about the tunnels' history and how heavy the fighting was in the area during the war.

You will be guided to the tunnel system including the weapon factory, hospitals, kitchens and even get an opportunity to crawl under the tunnels. Learn about traps and how trap doors worked.

After that you can try delicious manioc which was the main food for guerilla-warriors in Cu Chi during the war. There's even an opportunity to try to fire off an AK47 or MK16 or machine guns at the nearby shooting range. After this, leave Cu Chi tunnels and return to Ho Chi Minh City.
