See a piece of Vietnamese history on this 6-hour tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels with a private guide. You'll get a look at where soldiers lived and fought underground, and learn about the role the tunnels played during the fight against the French in the 1940s and the Vietnam War, aka American War, of the '60s and '70s.
Your tour starts as you depart Ho Chi Minh City by private vehicle for the 25-mile (40-km) drive northwest of the city to the Cu Chi Tunnels, a 155-mile (250-km) network of underground channels that were used for living, cooking, storage, field hospitals, command center, and weapons factory for the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War, also known as the American War in Vietnam.
The tunnels were initially built for the fight against the French in the 1940s but were expanded in the 1960s, becoming a multistory underground city with hiding spots and trap doors. When you arrive, your visit starts with a short video documentary; then you have three hours to explore the Ben Dinh section of the tunnels. Learn about the history of the tunnels and the ingenuity of their inhabitants, and crawl through them yourself if you want. You also have the option to fire rounds from an assault rifle at the shooting range (not required).
