WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Start your day with morning hotel pickup and transfer to your luxury speedboat at Ho Chi Minh Pier.
  • From there, travel comfortably in a high-quality speedboat to Vietnam’s famed Cu Chi Tunnels.
  • The river cruise takes approximately one hour and local fruit with unlimited refreshments are served on board. Observe life along the riverbanks as your guide informs you about the local people’s river-based livelihoods.
  • Enjoy great photo ops of the Saigon River’s jungle-fringed canals and tributaries, where you might see houses on stilts or water buffalo at work.
  • Disembark at Cu Chi and follow your guide through the historic site, now a war memorial that features the impressive labyrinth of tunnels dug by Viet Cong guerrilla fighters during the Vietnam War (known in Vietnam as the American War).
  • Tour sections of the 75-mile-long (121-km) complex, which proved key to military campaigns such as the Tet Offensive of 1968. You can even slip into one of the narrow passageways to imagine how the supply routes and communications, hospitals, and food and weapons caches were operated underground.
  • After experiencing the tunnels, enjoy lunching on traditional Vietnamese fare at a riverside restaurant.
  • Return to Ho Chi Minh City in a climate-controlled minivan, passing through the countryside to get a taste of rural life. Stop at a cricket farm and discover a Vietnamese delicacy as you watch crickets being prepared as food.
  • Then taste the fresh herbs that go into many Vietnamese dishes at a nearby organic herb farm.
  • Top off your experience by visiting a home where rice paper is made the traditional way, shaped by hand then cooked over a fire and dried in the sun.
  • Your tour ends with drop-off at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel in the late afternoon.
