Along the way we'll keep you entertained with tales about the area's turbulent history, about the lives and grinds of its people. Just 30 minutes further from the typically-visited tunnels of Ben Dinh, we will arrive in Ben Duoc, the one which other companies tend to avoid due to the extra distance of about 20km. Here, you'll learn what life was truly like in these enemy named "black echo" mazes, as we guide you through the historic grounds - and into the ground, if you dare ! Model-home and display area shows of daily lives and survival means, and an ornate memorial temple commemorating those who dies make this site particularly enlightening.
    Enjoy a scenic lunch of the kind eaten in the area for centuries. After lunch, we'll make our way back to Saigon on a different route to which we came, arriving at your hotel at around 4pm.
