Highlights
  • Two top attractions on one tour: Cao Dai Temple and Cu Chi Tunnels
  • Delicious Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant
  • Save money on a group tour with entrance fees included
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and round-trip transport from Ho Chi Minh City
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.

I cannot recommend this tour. First, it's way too long and tiring for its value. Hotel pickup scheduled at 7:30-7:45AM (they were late), and then we finally made it back after 7PM at night. A nearly 12 hour day (to see only 2 locations) and most of it is spent on a very

I went on this tour on Monday 14 October. I can't remember the guide's name but he did an excellent job. Five stars to him for keeping a bunch of tourists entertained. The Temple was huge and imposing and made me wonder a lot about its history and those who practice the faith. I

We did this tour with my daughter and two 16 year old granddaughters. Albeit a very long day we enjoyed the trip to both the temple and the tunnels. Having lunch together gave us an opportunity to meet the other people on the trip. Good day.
