Visit one of the Vietnam War’s most famous historical sites, the Cu Chi Tunnels. These are just part of an awe inspiring network of tunnels used in war times as bunkers, soldiers quarters, bases and armories. The Cu Chi location has been adapted to make it safe for visitors to take a peek and experience what it must have been like to live in an underground village.
Full Tour Itinerary
Pickup & Boat
The tour starts with a 7:00-7:30am pickup from your hotel (exact time to be advised when booking). The group assembles at the boat pier, just near Saigon bridge in Binh Thanh District. We then board the comfortable speed boat that takes us up the Saigon River to Cu Chi district. A light breakfast/morning tea is served on the boat and after around an hour on the boat, we set up our bikes and start the ride.
Back Roads Cycling
We ride around 30km through small communities on quiet back roads, trails and paths. Traffic is not something you will need to contend with and the shade of the rubber plantations helps to keep us cool. Along the way, we will see rice paper making and various other village industries as well as people working their fields and tending to livestock. The independence of the bike allows us to stop and chat with locals and to learn a little about their lives.
Lunch & Cu Chi Tunnels
Lunch is had just after midday and once we’ve had some time to digest, we pedal on just a little further to conclude our ride at the Cu Chi tunnels. We have a guide from the area take us through the tunnels and explain the workings of a tunnel network and what was essentially an underground settlement. The drive back to town in the van takes just over an hour and a half.
We conclude the tour by returning you to your hotel around 4pm.
