Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam Shore Excursion - This focus of this shore trip is the Cu Chi tunnels, located in the Vietnam War memorial park. In addition to visiting this site, which has become a popular tourist attraction, you enjoy an included lunch.

After meeting your guide you will depart for the Cu Chi District of Ho Chi Minh City where you have the chance to see and learn about the famous Cu Chi Tunnels which are now part of a Vietnam War memorial park and a popular tourist attraction. The Communist guerrilla troops known as Viet Cong dug tens of thousands of miles of tunnels including these below Cu Chi. The tunnels were used as infrastructure including tactical quarters, storage rooms, kitchens, a school and even an underground hospital. Most entrances were so well disguised that only a small portion of the system was ever discovered during the American war, despite the fact that some 125 miles ran under a U.S. military base. To combat these tactics the U.S. and South Vietnamese forces trained soldiers (known as tunnel rats) to navigate the tunnels in order to detect booby traps and enemy troop presence.

You will be guided by a veteran known as Uncle Nam who lived in the tunnels for 12 years during the American War (as its known in Vietnam). Uncle Nam only speaks Vietnamese so he will speak to you via your guide at the tunnels. You will gain deep insight and personal accounts of the wartime era.

After visiting the Cu Chi tunnels you will drive to central Ho Chi Minh City to enjoy a typical Vietnamese lunch at Dong Pho Restaurant, which is the name of ancient Sai Gon. The restaurant follows ancient structure and is well decorated with plants and flowers.

You return back to the pier at the end of the tour.
