Make the journey to the Cu Chi Tunnels as interesting as the attraction itself on a morning or afternoon tour by luxury speedboat. Instead of sitting through a long coach bus journey, enjoy a scenic speedboat ride along the Saigon River before exploring the Cu Chi Tunnels with a guide. A small group limited to 14 people maintains an intimate atmosphere, while hotel pickup and drop-off maximize the convenience of your experience.
What to Expect

After hotel pickup, get transferred to Ho Chi Minh Pier to board a luxury speedboat destined for the Cu Chi Tunnels.

During the journey, travel down the Saigon River while revitalizing with breakfast or snacks, depending on the departure time selected at checkout.

On arrival at the Cu Chi Tunnels, watch a short introductory film before descending into underground bunkers that functioned as a city during the Vietnam War (known as the American War by the Vietnamese).

After emerging from the tunnels, enjoy a Vietnamese lunch or dinner before returning to Ho Chi Minh by speedboat. This Cu Chi Tunnels tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

A bit disappointed

We chose to do the Cu Chi tunnels by boat as we had visited 11 years earlier, but my son could not remember it, so we decided to return via a different mode of transport. However we think it is a lot of money, particularly...More

The speed boat was good fun with great people. Can’t remember when we were picked up but it was from our hotel and we return an hour earlier than scheduled at 3pm. That was great cause we could go out to enjoy Saigon.

Hi Janet, we booked through TripAdvisor and paid ~£60 each. Best to go on the morning trip as you arrive before all the coaches turn up - enjoy!!
