This short but eye-opening trip reveals one of the most important sites of the Vietnam War – the underground tunnels of Cu Chi. As you enter the tunnels themselves, you’ll get a first-hand glimpse of what life was like for the Vietnamese soldiers who inhabited these extensive labyrinths as they staved off US forces in the 1960s. Using Ho Chi Minh City as a base, you’ll enjoy the freedom of private travel and the expertise of a local guide.
