This tour is a perfect combination that allows you to discover some of the most popular sides of Ho Chi Minh city, and takes you to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, the very same tunnels that played an integral part in the Vietnam-American war. Choose from two different tours depending on whether you want a pick up service, or how big you want your tour group size to be. During the tour, you will visit:

  • Independence Palace, a top choice for travelers who are looking to dig up a part of Vietnamese history and cultural relic.
  • Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the oldest and biggest Catholic Churches in Vietnam, which was built by French colonists between October 1877 and April 1880. Famous for its beautiful French-inspired architecture, and towering bell towers that reach 190 feet, it’s truly a sight to behold.
  • War Remnants Museum, where you can find shocking evidences of atrocity committed by the foreign aggressors during Viet Nam’s tow national liberation wars.
  • Central Post Office, constructed when Vietnam was part of French Indochina in the late 19th century. It counts with Gothic, Renaissance and French influences.
  • Crawl through the tight tunnels in Cu Chi, walk around the subterranean village built by the Viet Cong and learn more about the history of Vietnam-American war.

Then, spend your time to explore the remaining area and tunnel systems which included the special constructed living areas with kitchens, bedrooms side by side with other martial facilities like storage, weapons factories, field hospitals, and command centers helping whoever lives inside the tunnels meet their basic needs. Besides, there are also many hidden trap doors and dangerous traps within the maze-like tunnels for security purpose during the war. Afterward, special tea and cassava (guerilla’s food during the war) will be served. Break time for relax or time for those who want to try the real shooting gun. Return to Saigon.
