What To Expect

Cu Chi Tunnels
We’ll start with a pick-up from your accommodations before heading to the Ben Dinh tunnel entrance. This entrance was used extensively during the 1968 Tet Offensive by the Vietnamese Congress. Today you’ll find replicas of booby traps, sleeping quarters, and barracks to give you a glimpse of the reality during the war.

We’ll also meet a war veteran who will act as our guide, giving detailed stories and explanations of the Cu Chi Tunnels that were dug by the Vietnamese as a way to protect themselves from the American offense. The tunnels are a large network of underground tunnels that were built during the war against the French. It was used not only as a means to hide but also to communicate with other soldiers.

We’ll explore the labyrinth of tunnels, learning about the history and importance of this site while viewing and exploring the underground passages.
