Tour Summary:

  • Travel by speedboat from downtown Ho Chi Minh City to the Cu Chi Tunnels, an underground city for Viet Cong soldiers during the Vietnam War.  
  • Cruise along the Saigon River for a unique twist on the commute, and see what life is like on the banks of Ho Chi Minh City's biggest waterway.  
  • Explore the historic tunnels, learn the stories of the people who lived there, and visit an organic farm to learn about ‘farm-to-table' concept. 


Escape the congestion of Ho Chi Minh City and head out into the countryside, a far cry from the frenetic urban sprawl of downtown Saigon. As you journey down the Saigon River by speedboat, watch the city fade into the background. As you journey down the Saigon River by speedboat, watch the city fade into the background, replaced by scenes of rural Vietnamese life and enjoy a selection of traditional Vietnamese fruits. 

You will eventually find yourself at the Cu Chi tunnels, the infamous underground city for Viet Cong soldiers during the Vietnam War. Central to the Viet Cong’s strategic war operations, including the famous 1968 Tet Offensive, it is still complete with a hospital, kitchen, and schools. Remember to look out for “mantraps” - large camouflaged holes dug deep into the ground, that ensnared enemy soldiers with bamboo spikes. The Cu Chi experience can be emotionally draining for some visitors, but it does offer a fascinating look into the hardship and trauma of the war. 

Embark on a scenic journey through the countryside and stop at an organic farm to learn what the concept ‘farm-to-table’ really means. Learn about organic farming, get to know the many different kinds of local herbs, spices and vegetables and gain insight into the process of growing mushrooms. After the visit, sit down and enjoy a delicious and healthy lunch, made mostly with fresh ingredients produced on the farm before making your way back to your hotel, arriving mid- afternoon.
