Cu Chi Tunnels and Countryside Tour by Luxury Speedboat

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take a swift, luxurious ride by deluxe speedboat to the Cu Chi Tunnels and discover a vast underground network built by guerrilla fighters during the Vietnam War. Snack on fruit and refreshments as you glide over the Saigon River, then peek into narrow passageways that once served as caches for supplies and weapons. Return to Ho Chi Minh City by air-conditioned vehicle with your knowledgeable guide, who also takes you to an herb farm, a cricket farm and a home where rice paper is made in the traditional way. Numbers are limited to 14 to ensure a small-group experience, which includes a riverside Vietnamese lunch.
  • Beat the crowds on a Cu Chi and rural tour by speedboat from Ho Chi Minh
  • Learn about the tunnels and Vietnam War via guide commentary
  • Small group size means plenty of personalized attention 
  • Enjoy lunch and farm visits on the return ride back to your hotel
What to Expect
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.

I think so. There were some singles on our tour. Send them an e- mail. I do see there being a problem.
