Part 1: The Cu Chi Tunnel Experience with Speed boat
Start the Cu Chi Tunnels tour early at 7:00 am to beat the large tour groups. Travel to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels in style on one of Les Rives’ luxurious speedboats, while learning about life on the river as you glide through the floating hyacinths.
Explore the historic war site of Cu Chi, from weapons to underground bunkers. If you are feeling extra adventurous, you can even crawl through the authentic Viet Cong tunnels and try the local cassava root, which the fighters sustained themselves on for years.
After the blast from the past at the Cu Chi Tunnels, enjoy a traditional Vietnamese lunch right by the river. Then relax as the graceful speedboat brings you back to Ho Chi Minh City.
Part 2: Saigon local’s lifestyle with vespa
At roughly 1pm, staff will pick you up on restored vintage vespas from Bach Dang pier to show you the best way to get off the beaten path of Saigon.
While cruising through the bustling streets like a local on the back of a scooter, see the sites that you would never find on your own. Learn about things such as small family business in the big city, the Chinese community and their influence of medicine, Vietnamese customs & religion, and more.
We will end at a hidden relaxing Buddhist Pagoda which has yet to be found by other tourists.
At around 4:30pm, the tour comes to an end and staff will drop you off at your hotel or residence.

entering one of the cu chi tunnels is a must try. you can go as short as 20m and as long as 80m. tunnels are air conditioned. one person can fit easily making duck walk. so many things to see, too. truly a feast for the eyes and the senses.

Was very nervous about riding pillion in all the traffic but need not have worried as we felt very safe with the experienced drivers as we zipped through the side streets of Saigon. Started with cocktails by the river then ate at a couple of amazing places , finishing with coffee in a karaoke cafe. Would thoroughly recommend this exhilarating experience.

It was fun and learning experience. The trip to Cu Chi tunnel is quite long .Got the chance to go inside the tunnel and it was really fun and scary at the same time.The tourguide is very patient and informative.

First five minutes were terrifying but after the rum-based welcome drink (which mysteriously appeared on silver tray with ice as we stood on a historic bridge) things got better. Really a food tour with two major eating stops, including the very best seafood we ate in four weeks, at a very, very local tiny stool place. Lots and lots of food, drink, and whizzing around town, including through tiny alleyways. Extended family all rated this the highlight of our trip.

We had such a good time! We would highlight recommend doing this tour for so many reasons. My husband had never been on a motorbike so apprehensive but within a couple of minutes he was having a great time. One of the characteristics of Vietnamese cities is the volume of motorbikes (crossing the road is a challenge!) so this tour gave you a feel of being a local, but felt totally safe as well. In additional to our two Vespas there was two other guys on Vespas/motorbikes that provided protection from other traffic.
