Day 2: Cu Chi Tunnels & Food Tour
Start your day bright and early by meeting your guide at your hotel. Enjoy a VIP experience as you travel in style to the renowned Cu Chi Tunnels. Our 5-star speedboats will take you from your hotel to the pier, where you'll embark on your journey. During the boat ride, a light breakfast of sandwiches, pastries, and fruit will be served as you take in the picturesque scenery. Arriving before the crowds, you'll have ample time to discover the secrets of the Cu Chi Tunnels. The Viet Cong used these underground passages to move troops and supplies undetected. The English-speaking guide will provide insights into the Saigon River's life as your boat gracefully navigates through the floating water hyacinths. You'll have opportunities for incredible photos and a window into traditional Mekong river life. Following a brief documentary, your guide will take you on a historic Cu Chi tunnels tour. During numerous conflicts, these tunnels served as communication centers, hospitals, food storage, and weapon caches. After you visit the tunnels, indulge in a delicious traditional Vietnamese lunch of local specialties such as caramelized clay pot pork and lemongrass chicken. Complete your journey by boarding the boat for a scenic trip back to Saigon.

In the evening, you will get ready to embark on a culinary journey through popular street stalls and hidden alleyways in the city. The tour showcases where the locals love to eat, so come hungry and let us treat you to a truly authentic Vietnamese dining experience! This world-renowned food tour is not your typical Vietnam food excursion. You will skip the usual suspects like Pho, Spring Rolls, Vietnamese Pancakes, or Banh Mi Sandwiches and instead focus on unique street food dishes that most people outside of Vietnam have never tasted. Don't worry; we won't ask you to eat anything too unconventional – no dog meat, bugs, organs, raw food, or anything too strange.

Vietnam is a bustling country with rich history, ancient traditions, mouth-watering food, and stunning landscapes.
