All About this Tour
Escape Saigon for the countryside around the famous Cu Chi tunnels. Cycle scenic rural roads away from the city, visit a rice paper factory, a local market and other handicraft makers along the route. At Cu Chi enjoy a private tour of the famous tunnels with lunch away from the tour crowds.
Whilst Saigon is a vibrant and exciting city, this tour gives you a chance to enjoy fresh air and cycle the peaceful countryside as we show you the real Vietnam, only a short distance from the big city.
A visit to the famous Cu Chi tunnels is a highly memorable day of adventure and adds some historical context to your visit of our stunning country.
7:30am pick up at your hotel and travel north with a private van towards Cu Chi. It will take approximately 90 minutes from Saigon. Cycle around 30 km through small communities on quiet roads. Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere while traveling through rubber trees far from Saigon’s busy traffic. Visit with your biking guide a rice paper making place as well as many other village industries. Along the way, you will also get the chance to observe locals working in the field and taking care of their livestock. Traveling by bicycle offers flexibility. Thus, you will easily be able to stop for breaks, pictures but also to chat with the villagers and get to know more about their daily lives. In Cu Chi, you will be accompanied through the historical and technical aspects of the tunnels by a local guide. You will eat lunch in a local restaurant in town (authentic Vietnamese food!) before driving back to Ho Chi Minh City (an hour and a half). You will be brought back to your hotel at 4pm.
