Full description
First, be picked up from your hotel and after about 1.5 hours, you will reach Cu Chi tunnels. On arrival, through a short video, you are given an introduction into how the Cu Chi Tunnels were made and how the Vietnamese people suffered the hardships during the period of war. Be taken to discover the remaining area and a part of the tunnel network which embraces special living areas – kitchens and bedrooms side by side, and martial facilities – weapon factories, storage, command centers, and field hospitals. Additionally, learn about dangerous traps and hidden trap doors inside the maze-like tunnels for the guerrillas’ security purpose during the wartime. Interestingly, taste special tea and cassava which was once the everyday food of the former Vietnamese guerrillas. Have lunch at a local restaurant and then visit My Tho city. Take a leisurely cruise along Tien River. After, pay a visit to a coconut candy mill, a family business, then be taken down the small canals by wooden sampans to soak up the pleasant atmosphere of the river region. Savor seasonal fruits, take a sip of honey tea and get a sense of Southern Vietnamese folk music through music performed by the locals. You will return to Ho Chi Minh City at approximately 7:00 PM.

Picking up at the hotel worked without any problems. We were only a small group of five people, which made the whole thing very pleasant. Furthermore, we had a great guide (Yen), who knew his way around and was able to answer all sorts of questions (also about the country and its people). He was also considerate if you wanted to stay somewhere two minutes longer. In addition, we also had the best driver in Vietnam, anyone who has had experience there knows that it can also be very difficult. The tour went absolutely according to plan, exhausting but very interesting. Absolutely to recommend.

great tour

We did the tour in a small group which turned out to be the best. We were the first at Cu Chi Tunnels and had plenty of time to see everything. When we after a good 2 hours. You could see what it was like if you drove on later. Everything was full of buses. Everything was also well organized in the Mekong Delta and we were able to learn a lot. This was also due to our great guide. The driver brought us safely back to the hotel in the evening. I highly recommend the small group day tour. 5 Stars

Exciting day!

A day filled with exciting things to experience from morning to evening. The Cu Chi tunnels were interesting: bring lots of water to the tunnels and just napkins! The food during the day was perfectly ok and we got a lot of water throughout the day. The top! The transport was ok. It took time to get to the Mekong Delta, mostly because the road is a highway. But the Mekong Delta area was very interesting: different from the rest of Vietnam: the climate, way of life, the cities... The guide was kind and helpful, but he could have timed it a little better: we arrived late for lunch (we were super hungry). And of course, the arrival in Ho Chi Minh was later than expected.
