Testimonials
"Pickup service was good. Services on board was great, the village sightseeing was god, and guide spoke good English. If I could wish for two things; taking drink orders at the tables on top deck during nighttime and a stop or two at the floating market, not just driving by. Information and payment was good. Would recommend to friends. Thank you for a good trip, and experience. "

After lunch time, you will visit Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Post office to get good shots for our memory of the big, modern city of Vietnam. You will continue by heading to Chinatown with  walking tour through back streets of China town near Cho Lon to view the local daily life.

Day 3: Ho Chi Minh City - Cu Chi Tunnels 1/2 Day
Depart Ho Chi Minh City at 0800 in the morning for the drive to Cu Chi district. Leaving the city behind, the scenery changes to views of rice paddies, villagers drying noodles by the side of the road and other scenes typical to southern Vietnam.

 

Arrive and start the visit of the famous Cu Chi Tunnels which consist of an incredible underground tunnel network constructed by Vietnamese resistance fighters (Viet Cong) during both the French and American wars. Start the visit with the Ben Dinh or Ben Duoc sections of the tunnel. Here you can imagine what it was like to be a guerrilla complete with Russian Carbine rifles and AK 47’s on display.

After that, you'll then be driven to your hotel. The afternoon will be your own.
