We will pick you up at your hotel at 7:00 and then transfer you to Bach Dang Pier where you will embark on a luxury speedboat heading towards Cu Chi Tunnels. While the boat is cruising through the original landscapes along Saigon riverbanks, you will be served with fresh seasonal fruits and soft drinks and observe the local life style of Saigoneses.
Arriving at Cu Chi Tunnels (Dinh Pier), a documentary film about the tunnels during the war time will be introduced first.

Afterwards, we will have a soft walk into the jungle to visit the traps, the secret entrance, the bunkers and the underground hideouts. There offers you a special and fantastic chance to relax with shooting real guns and real bullets at the riffle range as well as to witness the rice-paper (spring roll skin) making. You can even try to crawl into the Cu Chi Tunnels.
Take a rest with green tea and tapioca, the main food served during the war time, to learn more about the life of Viet Cong in the war.
Saying goodbye to the historic land before having traditional Vietnamese lunch in the romantic riverside restaurant on the way back. You can choose to come back to Saigon downtown by shuttle bus or by our return speedboat to Bach Dang Pier.
