    Hello, Thanks for your question. You can do a Mekong delta day trip, and Saigon city and Cu Chi tunnels. You can take your infant to the Cu Chi Tunnels. But I recommend that you can go arround but not try go inside the tunnel with your infants. Tour guide will offer short and long way you can try yourself. There are many hotel suitable for your family such as Elios, Blue Diamond, Golden hotel or so on.

This day trip is good for people like me who can't give much time to stay in HCMC. The trip brought us most famous areas in HCMC and Cu Chi tunnel. It was a well- organized trip with enough information about HCMC and vietnamese people. Good job done by our tour guide who gave us the knowledge about Vietnam wars and history of vietnam.

I generally enjoyed the full-Day Ho Chi Minh City and Cu Chi Tunnels Tour. The positive things:It's a fairly effective way to see important places in the city, get some historical facts and then combine it with the Cu Chi Tunnels. Our guide Yen was fun and he especially did a good job at showing us around in the Cu Chi Tunnels. The lunch was good and the drinks (paid by yourself) were excellent - the MaiTai is strong and the watermelon juice amazing. When you get on the bus in the morning (if you didn't select pickup), they will guide you to the bus via a number on a sign they are holding up. The number should match the one on your stamped ticket, that you get at the office. No need to print your ticket, just show it on the phone. Room for improvement: while the lunch was good, it was a bit too small for a western stomach. Also, I was adviced to come to the office for pickup no later than 7:45 am. Then I stood there and waited for the bus 30 minutes... Our full day tour was combined with a morning half-day tour and an afternoon half-day tour, and thus we wasted some time getting people on and off the bus. I could also have used more time in the War Reminants Museum (which was horrifying and thought-provoking at the same time) and less time at the Palace.

This was my favorite tour that I did in Vietnam. I was really impressed with the tour guide. I forget his real name but he said we could call him K. He was very passionate about his job and taught me so much about the history of Vietnam. He took the time to answer questions and explain. I was blown away by how much I learned and how interesting the cu chi tunnels were. And we got to go inside and imagine what it must have been like. I’d highly recommend this tour!!
