To visit the tunnels, your driver will transfer you out of Ho Chi Minh City to Tan Phu Trung village. Bikes are ready for you to ride through rubber plantations, and see locals making rice paper and wine. Upon arrival at Cu Chi Tunnels, you will have some time to watch a movie about the war in 1967 before walking around the historical battle site.

Marvel at boats replete with exotic produce and interact with locals in order to discover more about their stock. Next, disembark and stroll to the coconut candy factory to discover the manufacturing process of the sweet treats, as well as puffed rice – the local equivalent of popcorn. A delicious home-cooked Vietnamese meal will be served for lunch in a local family. Then jump on your bike to cycle through fruit orchards to see the fresh seasonal fruits. Stop in a local house to enjoy a melodious Vietnamese folk music known as "Don Ca Tai Tu".

The initial path is wide and inviting, very relaxing and quiet, but it soon narrows. Be ready to ride the roller coaster that is in front of you. Along the way you will have lovely views of the surrounding mountains, including the highest peak in the area, Langbian (2,169 m above sea level) and your off road section ends at the well-known Valley of Love.
