  • Save money on a group tour with entrance fees included

What to Expect
After pickup from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, journey to Tay Ninh Province with your guide and group. Enjoy a tour of the magnificent Cao Dai Temple complex and even join the temple’s resident monks for midday mass to gain an insight into Vietnam’s unique Cao Dai religion. Stop for a typical Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant, before continuing to the Cu Chi Tunnels, one of the most impressive war sites in Vietnam. Follow your guide on a tour of the tunnels and learn how the Viet Cong used the more than 124-mile (200-kilometer) network of tunnels as war bunkers, ammunition stores, and command centers. You also have a chance to crawl through the tunnels, climb inside one of the camouflaged trapdoors, and taste common foods eaten by the Viet Cong soldiers. Your tour ends with drop-off at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
