What you can expect

Escape the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Min city for a day and enjoy a unique trip through the beautiful Vietnamese countryside! Our destination: the famous Ben Duoc Tunnels of the Cu Chi region. This is your chance to explore this amazing labyrinth the way you choose.

Along the way we’ll see picturesque rice fields, idyllic water buffalo, and beautiful mountains. You can get closer to the buffaloes, and mingle with the local rice field workers. I can tell you about their life and work and you can get a good feel of what life is like as a modern day peasant.

Then it’s on to the famous tunnels. Built by the North Vietnamese army, the tunnels connect living and cooking areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers and the hundreds of trap doors that played a strategic role in the resistance of the Viet Cong soldiers.

Fancy a 100 meter crawl through the tunnel? Or just a 10 meters at a time. Both are possible. Just let me know what you prefer and I can show you the way. I can tell you about life in the tunnels and the hardships that the soldiers coped with. You can also hear about the strategic significance of the tunnels and how they were used.

Getting hungry? It’s time for a delicious Vietnamese lunch, included in the tour price. I’ll explain what is served and how it is cooked. If you have any special dietary needs let me know and I’ll make sure your preferences are catered for.

Before returning to the city, we can take a stroll through a working rubber plantation and see how rubber is tapped from the trees. I can tell you all about the rubber tree, the history of rubber tree in Vietnam, and its contribution to the local economy.

This is a 100% private tour just for you and your group, and you can change the itinerary and do or see whatever you please. At the start of the day, you can be picked up at your accommodation, driven by car to the city outskirts and after a quick briefing on how to safely ride a scooter, we'll be on our way.
