Cu Chi Tunnels tour by speedboat is one of Les Rives best selling half-day tours, you will travel like a VIP and arrive hours before the large bus tour groups to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels historical site (also pronounced as Chu Chi Tunnels by some foreigners ). Because this is a popular attraction with Vietnamese school children and holiday-makers, we set out early to avoid large crowds, ensuring that our boats arrive before everyone else.
You will have an opportunity to uncover the secrets of the Cu Chi Tunnels, a vast network of underground passageways built and used by the Viet Cong to evade detection as they moved troops and supplies throughout Ho Chi Minh City’s northern districts. During the speedboat trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, Les Rives English-speaking guide will introduce you to life along the banks of the Saigon River as your boat gracefully slips through knots of floating water hyacinths on this scenic boat trip. You will have a chance to enjoy a window into traditional Mekong river life and wonderful photo opportunities.
After a short documentary, Les Rives guide will lead you through the historic Cu Chi, dug by resourceful guerrilla fighters to provide communication and supply routes, hospitals, food and weapon caches and living quarters during numerous conflicts.
After you visit the tunnels, a traditional Vietnamese lunch of local specialties like lemongrass chicken and caramelized clay pot pork will be served.
