Your guide collects you from your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel to explore the city in air-conditioned comfort. See the Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral (under reconstruction until 2020) and the colonial-era Central Post Office. Then learn about the Vietnam War and its consequences as you tour the War Remnants Museum and Independence Palace.

After lunch at a local restaurant, head out of the city to the Cu Chi Tunnels, an underground warren with more than 125 miles (200 kilometers) of tunnels built during the Vietnam War in the 1970s. After touring the network, choose to try your hand at marksmanship at the shooting range by the tunnel. Finally, your guide drops you back to your hotel.
