Visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels is an incredible experience of life for the Vietnamese during the war. Going inside the tunnels is optional, and can be a little claustrophobic for those who don’t like small spaces.
There is some walking involved on this trip, with walking tours in the downtown areas of each city, as well as walking in the caves in Halong Bay.

This was my first trip with Intrepid and won't be my last. I meet really great interesting people while seeing some of the most amazing sites. As a solo traveler I was hesitant to go on my first tour. However, it was one of the best experiences. The guides were informative so you understood the historical and culture significance of what you saw. The people in the group were welcoming, diverse and a lot of fun.
