Itinerary

When does my tour start?

This is a private tour and the tour time will be set to fit in with your arrival time.



When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?

The tour is 9 hours in length so you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure.
All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time)

THIS IS A PRIVATE TOUR

You will be met at the port of Phu My by a cruising excursions representative who will then guide you to your air conditioned transportation.

This tour focuses on the ingenuity and resilience of the Vietnamese fighters who both lived and fought from underground tunnels. Originally constructed as a mean to fight against the French by the Viet Minh, the tunnels were later expanded up to 12 meters below ground in hard soil using only rudimentary tools. Most tunnels were only 60-70 centimeters wide, and 1.5 meters high, with thick roofs capable of withstanding the weight of tanks or the impact of bombs weighing up to 100 kilograms.

En-route the Cu chi, the busy road passes through tranquil rice paddies, where entrepreneurial villagers use the hot roadside as a platform for drying all manner of produce. A short photostop will be made at a small vilalge where your guide will explain the process of rice paper production. Hundreds of sheets dot the countryside, drying on woven racks in the relentless sun.

On arrival at Cu Chi, a short video traces the history of the tunnels, their origins, construction and design. A military guide will explain with the use of dioramas the underground network, and display some of the tools and weapons utilized by the guerrillas. Much of the tunnel complex has been open and ventilated so that you can more easily experience the underground meeting rooms, kitchens, hospital and sleeping areas. More adventurous and agile tunnel explorers can experience an unlit pasage, which has not been enlarged for the comfort of visitors! You will be tested to find the hidden tunnels entrances and be given insight into the ingenious methods that the Vietnamese soldiers employed to remain undetected and frustrate their enemies.

Refreshments and souvenirs are available in the nearby parking area, which also displays some military paraphernalia.

Study shoes, sun and mosquito repellent recommended. Passengers visiting lower levels may get dirty.

On the return drive to Saigon, a stop will be made at the recently erected memorial nearby, which honors the 10,000 guerrilla soldiers who died during the fighting at Cu Chi.

 Please note: in order to participate in this tour, passport details (including passport number, date of birth and date of issue/expiry) and full name of all the passengers are required. Please contact our guest service team to provide this information prior to your departure.
