Private Ho Chi Minh City and Cu Chi Tour

This private excursion offers the best of both worlds with a morning spent exploring the famous Cu Chi Tunnels and an afternoon ticking off a selection of Ho Chi Minh's highlights.

Your private tour begins with a collection from your hotel followed by a drive through the Vietnamese countryside, which was once a stronghold of the Viet Cong, before arriving at the Cu Chi Tunnels zone

This vast underground complex was once buzzing with thousands of soldiers but offers a startling contrast to today’s Vietnam, a fast-developing country where the legacy of war is almost forgotten.

See and, if you're not too claustrophobic, explore some of the cramped tunnels which served as living quarters, supply routes and even hospitals for thousands of guerilla fighters.

Return to Ho Chi Minh for a well-earned traditional Vietnamese lunch before starting the afternoon itinerary with a visit to the Reunification Palace and its war rooms, banquet hall, presidential office and more.

Continue on to the War Remnants Museum where your guide will tell the story of the city’s darkest and most tragic hours during the Vietnam War. The museum contains displays of military aircraft, weaponry and many photographs – some that are quite graphic in nature.

Next, stop at two iconic architectural landmarks, the Central Post Office and the Notre Dame Cathedral, which was built between 1877 and 1883 by renowned designer Gustav Eiffel.

Finally, the tour ends at the famous Ben Thanh market, where you may practice your bargaining skills and pick up some souvenirs before being returned to your hotel.
