Following hotel pickup in Ho Chi Minh City, you're transferred by minivan to Tan Cang pier. Travel with your guide and small group by luxury speedboat to the Cu Chi Tunnels, located about 43 miles (70 km) northwest of the city. During the ride, a light breakfast is served, including seasonal fruits and pastry with bottled water. Feel the fresh breeze while you listen to your guide's commentary about daily life along the riverbanks.

On arrival at Cu Chi, watch a documentary film about one of history's most sophisticated human-made tunnels and hear wartime legends. Then walk into the jungle with your guide and crawl into the tunnels to see traps, secret entrances, bunkers, and underground hideouts from a restored part of the 155-mile (250-km) labyrinth, complete with trenches and sites for eating, sleeping, meetings, military activities, food storage, and more.

You can shoot a rifle at the on-site gun range (ammunition is your own expense), then get a look at local industries such as rice-paper and rice-wine production. Following a break for green tea and tapioca — the main food served during the Vietnam (American) War — you're taken to Tan Cang resort for a traditional Vietnamese lunch including seven main courses.

You'll arrive back at your hotel in the afternoon.

Cu Chi Tunnels by Speedboat is rockstar travelling for the family
Mark_S
, Jul 2022
Our visit to the Cu Chi tunnels by speedboat was the best decision we could have made. Not only did we get a speedboat to ourselves (family of four made up of 2 x teenage boys, mum and dad) but the personal service from our tour guide 'Banana' was fantastic. We were collected from our hotel and driven straight to the marina for transfer onto the boat. The next thing we knew, we had the wind in our hair and the sights of Saigon city whizzing past. No traffic, no noise except for the humm of the outboard motor. It was heaven after the sensory overload of Saigon. We tucked into the croissants and fruit on offer for breakfast. Got to the tunnels in around 1 hour after seeing some amazing sights along the river including the former US Military Base. We got the tunnels well before any of the tour buses which was awesome because we got to see all the sights before the crowds arrived. Our guide Banana was incredibly knowledgeable about the tunnels, the site and the tactics used by Vietnamese fighters over the past few hundred years. Very educational for westerners. At the end, we found the video about the war a little confronting, but this gave you a different perspective. The ride home was bliss because after the humidity of the jungle, the breeze from the boat was heaven and I got to have a sleep ! Overall, cannot recommend this trip highly enough if you have a family and you don't want to spend hours on the road in a car or van travelling to the tunnels. This is rockstar treatment for a very reasonable price and the service was excellent.

The tunnel experience

The trip was extremely knowledgeable and a great half day experience . Our guide was informative and he tried to answer as many questions as we put to him. The lunch that was supplied was very good and we weren’t rushed to finish it. It was another’s great experience from Viator and we will continue to use wherever we end up on holiday. Thank you.

We have a great time on our tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels! The Speedboat option was such a great choice - we were picked up at our hotel, brought to the docking station, and set off for about an hour on the boat. Snacks (fruit and croissants) were offered on the boat, and our guide told us about the area we were boating through, as well as the history of the tunnels and the people who built them. When we arrived at the tunnels, our guide made sure the entry process was seamless, and confidently explained to us each station that we visited, being careful to avoid crowds and ensuring we had time to explore. At the Cu Chi Tunnels, you do have the option of using the shooting range for an additional fee - though even if you aren't using it, it is very loud and can be heard throughout your visit (be mindful for young children or those who are sensitive to this!). The tour concluded with lunch (plentiful! They also did a great job accommodating a vegetarian diet), and we were then brought back to our hotel. What a great time!

Our family did the Luxury Speedboat tour and had a great time. The guide, Kate was amazing! She was so knowledgeable and friendly. We loved touring the tunnels and learning all about the area. Probably our favorite tour of all three weeks in VN. It was so easy and well-thought out. It was geared to the comfort of the passengers and I would recommend it to anyone. Well done, Kate, etc.

Our tour guide, Kaye, was very entertaining. Although we don't quite understand her at times, we really appreciate her giving her best effort to make the tour fun and interesting for the guests. I would wish she would give more historical information. But overall, for those first timers in Vietnam, I highly recommend this tour.

Very informative, and our guide, Kate, was terrific. A piece of history worth seeing, it's one thing to read about it, it's a completely other thing to actually see it, and crawl through those tunnels, and get a sense of what they did for months/years, wow.

Was a very special day and travelling by the speedboat was great because it only took about an hour to get to there, and with only a group of 6 people we had time to get to know the other travelers on the way and there was not much waiting in queues when we got there. Our guide Phuong Nguyen was lovely, very funny and with beautiful english, lunch was also lovely and we were back at our hotel early in the afternoon so we still had half a day to explore Saigon for ourselves too. Was definately worth the little extra in price from the bus.

These kind of trips always come down to the type of host you have to make the experience. From pick up Kite our guide was amazing. Her charm really did make the trip and I would highly recommend going to see the tunnels. It was a comfortable trip except for when you go into the tunnel but this is only an option I did not feel pressured at any point to buy anything or do anything I did not want to. The meal at the end was of great quality and on the whole i'm delighted to have chosen this trip. Thank you again Kite! Your Mr Muscle haha
