After Ho Chi Minh hotel pickup, board a deluxe speedboat on the Saigon River and enjoy an approximately 1-hour cruise to Cu Chi. Observe the riverbanks as your guide explains local life at the farms and villages you pass, and savor onboard drinks and fresh fruit.

On arrival, enjoy a guided tour of the historical Cu Chi site and tunnels used by the Viet Cong against the Americans and other forces during the Vietnam War. Explore above and below ground to see what were once hidden supply routes, kitchens, and hospitals.

After a riverside Vietnamese lunch, you’ll head back to Ho Chi Minh, stopping en route to experience local life. Visit an herb farm and a cricket farm, learning how the insects are made into delicacies, and get glimpse at traditional rice-paper production.
