Catch a lift from the airport in a private vehicle and get dropped off at your hotel to freshen up before your evening tour begins. When you're ready, meet up with your guide and take off into the city on a 3-wheeled, pedal-powered cyclo bike. Check out the illuminated edifices of landmarks like the Notre Dame Cathedral, pop by a performance space to watch an enchanting water puppet show, and then make your way to Bach Dang Port to board a spacious vessel for a pleasant dinner cruise.
Spend the morning winding through the Cu Chi tunnels, where Vietnamese soldiers created a subterranean world, complete with hidden entrances, hospitals, living quarters, and command centers, all built underground.
In the afternoon, return to Ho Chi Minh City to learn more about the war at the War Remnants Museum and get the chance to step inside legendary landmarks like the Saigon Central Post Office.
Ride out of town, through verdant rice paddies and quaint pastoral landscapes, and reach the riverfront village of My Tho. Hop aboard a boat for a scenic cruise through Bao Dinh Canal, grab lunch in a serene coconut grove, and watch an engaging folk music performance.
Get the chance to do some last-minute souvenir shopping at colorful outdoor markets and gleaming shopping centers before you grab a ride back to your hotel or to the airport in plenty of time for your flight.
