Our Trip was a Great Success and an Unforgettable Experience!

We’re a group of five architects from Spain including two ladies. As a part of our research, our trip to Bangladesh focussed on modern architecture such as the famous Bangladesh National Parliament Building by Louis I Kahn, along with the prominent buildings of Muzharul Islam, Grand Master of regional modernism in South Asia and the Father of modern architecture in Bangladesh, and other eminent buildings of widely acknowledged local architects such as Basharul Haq, one of the most influential architects in South Asia. Also the Aga Khan Architecture Award winner (2016) Bait-ur-Rouf Mosque in Dhaka by Marina Tabassum. (more…)

We Felt like We were Walking Around the City with a Friend, Not a Guide!

Wow!! What an amazing day tour we had today with Arafat. We cannot say enough about our fantastic experience of the city of Dhaka. Liton was our driver. He was very professional and a very good driver in the crazy traffic of this busy city. He kept us safe, was ready when we needed him and chatted with us too. We have no reservations about recommending Arafat and the company called Bangladesh Unbound. (more…)

We stayed two days in Dhaka, visiting several interesting places. We saw the old marketplace with all the spices, vegetables, fruits, seafood and all kind of goods. We visit the harbour, peoples homes and have food in local restaurants.

We also took a ride in a ricksha, exciting in this hectic town. One of the days was also Victory Day and we were interviewed by the local TV. (more…)

Beyond our Initial Low Expectations for a Bangladesh Vacation!

It is hard to figure out where to start with the wonderful experience we had with Bangladesh Unbound during our week in Bangladesh. Other than a disastrous overnight boat tour which was not their fault, the entire experience was just incredible. The sites, the people and the things to see and do were so above and beyond our initial low expectations for a Bangladesh vacation.

If you are going to Bangladesh you have seen much of the world first. I’ve been to 102 countries and my wife has been to almost 80 before making it to Bangladesh. That said, this trip was possibly a top-five for us for all our travelling. Going to a country where there is so little general tourism creates opportunities and experiences that you just won’t find in most parts of the world. (more…)

Discover Most things and get to Know Different Daily Routines

When I was searching for a guide who could show me around Old Dhaka, a friend recommended me, Arafat, as a guide. Since our first tour, I booked several tours with Arafat for showing around my colleagues during a business trip or my family. In December 2021 I and my family had two amazing tours with Arafat, to Old Dhaka and Sonargaon.

When preparing the tours Arafat have been very flexible in the plans of what to visit. After my first visit, I had an overview of places I like to visit or to show others. It is easy to discuss these wishes with both of them and they provide also their ideas and estimations on starting and ending times, as well as the length of the tours. I always had my driver, so we agreed on a meeting point and picked the guide up. Most places are not within a walking distance, so a car is always needed. (more…)

It's Not the Number of Countries you have visited, but the Countries you've Visited!

I have a passion for travel and have visited over 50 countries. Someone once said to me “it’s not so much the number of countries you have visited, but the countries you’ve visited.

I first visited Bangladesh on the back end of an Everest base camp trek in November 2016. My choice of Bangladesh was determined by both culture and the lack of tourists. On making my decision, I then found Bangladesh Unbound on the internet and I’m so glad I did, as they were and still are, professional, helpful and dare I say it, on the ball. (more…)

Interesting and Colorful Dhaka in 1 Full Day

I took a photography tour yesterday with Bangladesh Unbound and its fearless leader, Arafat. Arafat displayed an incredible ability to navigate the hectic maze that is Old Dhaka and imparted lots of knowledge about the city and the country. It was a super-efficient and organized way to experience the most interesting and colourful parts of Dhaka in one full day.

Enjoyable, for Long Remembering, and Worth Repeating

After being rushed back by the cyclone BulBul, my second attempt to visit Sundarban was successful and more than that. The three-day tour with now already friends from Bangladesh Unbound in February was wonderful – relaxing, energizing, cultural.

Cruising the wastewaters of the Bangladeshi delta provided plenty of time to explore mangrove forests, get acquainted with the life of fishermen, enjoy uninterrupted views and watch rich wildlife. In our morning and evening canoe rides through mangrove canals, we saw numerous colourful birds, monkeys, deer and many others, yet the tiger did not show up this time. (more…)

Tiger about to Swim across the Stream and Later two Jackals

I did the 10-day Highlights of Bangladesh with Bangladesh Unbound with an extra day tagged on the end to see the ships being deconstructed and recycled on the beaches of Chittagong. The highlight of the trip was the three-day sojourn in Sundarban mangrove forest along the coast of the Gulf of Bengal. We saw lots of animals quietly rowing up the creek, like deer, jungle fowl, wild boar, then we became really lucky and stumbled upon a tiger about to swim across the stream and later two jackals.

Before I ever arrive in Bangladesh, they have been helping me to plan my trip, gave me advice for booking my stay and even helped me with LOI for my visa on arrival.

Despite the inherent chaos in Bangladesh, everything went completely according to plan and was well organized from the pick-up in the early morning in the hotel to return late at night.

I can certainly recommend using them when in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh is a Country for Those who Like Travel

An incredible experience. Dhaka during Eid (everyone is travelling!), the market bazaars, boat trips, the old city, crossing the Padma, Bergehat and a slow and easy trip down into the Sundarbans. I won’t take time to describe the random stop to watch rural jute processing. No (and I mean no) bugs during this time of year and no security concerns at all. Friendly people, the guide (Faisal), a boat crew that thought of things before I did and don’t let me forget the food. Bangladesh is a country for those who like travel and want to experience a country in its natural, unadulterated state without the overdone tourism of many places.

This operator hit all the right spots for me. My only regret is not having more time.

We booked the 6-day Rocket and Sundarbans trip, which was a great success. Dhaka is a bustling city but for us, the pleasure increased as we headed south and the 3 days spent on the boat in the mangrove swamps with only a few fishermen, wildlife and birds for the company was a true experience. Faisal our tour guide and Ali our wildlife guide were both knowledgeable and good company, providing us with a lot of broader information about their country. We were extremely impressed with the agricultural systems based largely around fish farming and rice production.

The quality, volume and variety of food on the boat in the Sundarbans was exceptional, particularly given how far we were from the nearest shop!

Overall, a fascinating trip and very well organised. I can strongly recommend Bangladesh Unbound.

When I told people I was going to Bangladesh, the usual reply was ‘why?’ or ‘what’s there?’, coupled with a quizzical look. It is indeed an ‘out there’ destination, often overlooked due to its proximity to India, a tourism magnet.

Farjana, the owner, efficiently handled all the booking details and was always prompt in that regard, an indication of attention to the client. The Glory of Bangladesh tour was excellent, providing insight into the country’s history and culture. Its core interest for me was covering the country’s three World Heritage Sites [Bagerhat, Sundarbans and Somapura Mahavihara]. The tour provided so much more. (more…)

Sundarbans Safari is a Must

The trip was a thrilling adventure. Our guides went beyond expectations to make us feel safe and cared for. They were knowledgeable, unbelievable helpful extremely kind, fun and friendly. The entire trip run smoothly with connections with transport, and the drivers and hotels were lovely. The meals were incredible and just a warning, the chilli is hot!!

Booking with Bangladesh Unbound was a dream and nothing seemed to be a problem to accommodate us. I simply can’t fault the experience and can’t wait to return.

The Glory of the Bangladesh Tour was a Glorious Experience

The 14-day Glory of Bangladesh was a wonderful tour. It had a varied and excellent itinerary of the big-city sights of Dhaka, the wildlife of the Sundarbans (lots of birds, boars and deer), interesting archaeological sites and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and villages that were very interesting, very non-touristy, and welcoming.

The people of Bangladesh were very friendly and open. We had great fun taking photos of all. Our tour guide spoke excellent English and was very helpful and informative. The only negative was the government limiting my visa because of the upcoming election. But the closed and very quiet Dhaka was perfectly safe and we wandered around freely.

I would strongly recommend both visiting Bangladesh and Bangladesh Unbound.

Pleasantly Surprised by the Friendliness and Curiosity of the Local People

I spent three weeks in Bangladesh and joined two tours with Bangladesh Unbound – Treasures of Chittagong and Highlights of Bangladesh. Both are very very well organized and enjoyable. The itinerary was well planned to include everything interesting there was to see, which in Bangladesh is the often the people going about their ordinary lives.

The guide was also flexible and allowed us to make some small changes, skipping things we weren’t so interested in, and finding other things that suited us. I liked that we traveled a lot on trains and boats and used CNG (tut-tuk) for short trips. The accommodation was simple but perfectly good, and it’s clear that Farjana, the company owner, has cultivated reliable local contacts. (more…)

Wonderful Trip certainly Delivered Beyond Expectation

Wow. This wonderful trip with Bangladesh Unbound tours certainly delivered beyond expectation. Five of us travelled on this two-week adventure in December. It was extremely well organised and so diverse in every respect that it made for one of the best travel adventures ever.

The throbbing, sensual heart of Dhaka with the continuous ring of the rickshaw bells will live with me. We walked the narrow streets lined with vendors of every description and were met with friendly enquiries as to where we were from and requests for selfies. These seemed to give enormous pleasure and an opportunity for conversation with the friendliest and most charming of people while we visited the important locations in Dhaka. (more…)

After a day exploring the colorful, frantic chaos that is Dhaka it was a relief to board the Rocket and escape down the hazy river. After a comfortable night on board, we drove to Bagerhat where my love of all things terracotta began… not to mention the stunning pillars of the Sixty Domed Mosque! (more…)

Less Known than India but No Less Interesting

Here is an unknown country, but which gains to be it and which one gains to know, for the kindness of its inhabitants, the quality of the reception which one finds precisely only in the countries not yet adulterated by the mass tourism. This country does not seem as dangerous to me as we are told; nowhere did I feel insecure.

The Bangladesh Unbound tour agency is very competent, its guides available, very honest and vigilant for good. To be as well as to the satisfaction of their customers. A very good address for us to discover the Sundarbans, Sonargaon, Bagherat, as well as other splendid sites less known than those of India but no less interesting.

Make Travelling in a Developing Country a Delightful Experience

I’ve just returned from an outstanding tour of the Sundarbans forest in the South of Bangladesh, organized by Bangladesh Unbound, and benefit from exceptional guiding by Arafat Rasul. When I researched the trip, it became apparent that Bangladesh Unbound presented one of the few (possibly only) regular small-group tour options for the Sundarbans. These trips are popular, and I was able to take advantage of a late-stage cancellation, it’s because the boat that Bangladesh Unbound charters can carry a maximum of 6 guests, but commonly groups are smaller, in my case 3 guests only.

This was priceless. We stopped for lunch at a lovely local restaurant – I had the very tasty mutton biryani. I saw the commerce up close via rickshaw and boat and visited the lovely mosques, temples, the museum and the fort.

A great experience. The market was chaotic, so prepare yourself for an extremely crowded and up-close experience.

Bangladesh Unbound took us Almost to Every Corner of the Country

We have just come back from a 23 days trip to Bangladesh, which took us almost to every corner of the country. We experienced traveling by trains, cars, boats and planes. It was very interesting and very hectic as well. All the people we met were very friendly and curious, and probably not used to tourists, we felt special, as hundreds wanted to take selfies with us.

The itinerary could have been better with fewer mosques/temples, and more free time. The drivers were friendly and good drivers, it is important to remember that the driving pattern is much more chaotic than in the western countries, but we felt safe all the time. Our guide for most of the period was very knowledgeable, had a keen eye for spotting wildlife (we did see the wild fishing cat and king cobra). His name was Arafat, and we highly recommend him.

Arafat, the wildlife guide was very knowledgeable and able to identify all the birds seen. This included all 7 species of kingfisher, the common flame back woodpecker with a brilliant red crest and many greater and lesser egrets, black hooded oriole and crested serpent eagle. There were numerous spotted deer (chital), wild boar and rhesus monkeys. We saw lots of tiger footprints. We were lucky to see the rare short-clawed otter.

However, we saw boat sailors using the black water to wash their clothes, bathe and even brush their teeth. The food (chicken biriyani) at the restaurant was nice but we had a little difficulty eating properly as it was served in a bowl and not on a plate. Remember to ask for it on a plate.

Not have Seen or Experienced as Much in such a Short Time

Went on a 2-day leisure tour to Srimingal, a good decision it turned out. The nature and the area, in general, is a great break from the noise in Dhaka. Was initially being a bit nervous about travelling around by myself but thanks to my guide Arafat I could relax and had a great time.

I would not have seen or experienced as much in such a short time on my own.

Very Professional Tour Operator had an Excellent Understanding of my Expectations

I have visited 15 different countries in Asia (most of them between 2 and 10 times), and I usually have professional photo equipment with me. This time I decided on very short notice to fly to Dhaka for 4 days.

First of all: Dhaka is among the three most interesting cities in entire Asia. From a Tourist perspective, Dhaka is highly underrated. (more…)

Explore Bangladesh? Can do no Better than Bangladesh Unbound

After 22 days of touring Bangladesh with Masbab, Liton, Arafat, Mr Lemon, and Ali and his boat crew, we feel that we have seen the real Bangladesh. The organizing of the tour from first contact to the conclusion was first-rate, professional seamless and hassle-free. We were looked after so well by Farjana and her team. Liton was a great driver (he made me say that) no not it’s hard to relax on Bangladesh’s roads but we managed it with Liton. Our guide Masbab had a great sense of humour and we enjoyed his company. Arafat also and even managed to show us a rare Hullook Gibbon at Lawachara National Park. On the boat trip on the Sunderbans, we especially enjoyed the birds, animals and daily life and the food was great! Each part of the country has something different to offer and it was this diversity that made the holiday for us.

Thank you to all the staff at Bangladesh Unbound for making our stay so memorable. Anyone wishing to explore Bangladesh can do no better than Bangladesh Unbound.

Bangladesh Unbound make Travelling Easy in a Difficult Country

I recently returned from a wonderful 6-day tour to Bangladesh with Bangladesh Unbound. My tour, “Sundarbans Excursion with Rocket”, far exceeded my expectations. Spent 3 days in Sundarbans on a very adequate boat with a friendly and caring crew. Saw a great variety of colourful birds, dolphins, and various animals here, the world’s largest mangrove forest. Went on a fun 80-year-old paddle steamer boat through the extensive river system in the southern part of the country. (more…)

Go Soon before the Crowds Rush in and Enjoy Yourself!

Bangladesh Unbound organised a very comprehensive and satisfying tour of this unusual and little-visited country. Ms Farjana, Arafat the guide and Liton the driver, managed to take us, 4 ladies of certain ages with baggage, around a country in its infancy of tourism. They certainly showed us “The Best of Bangladesh” in 18 days on the Original tour. We saw Mosques, Temples and monasteries, crocodiles, birds and bazaars, rice paddies and brick factories and People!. They are the smiliest people I have ever met with a huge penchant for taking “Selfies”. We felt like royalty, but it also allowed us to take photos of them too, for our memories. (more…)

Great Content, Great Guides, Great Value, Great Time

As the title suggests we thoroughly enjoyed our two 1 day tours with Bangladesh Unbound. The communication to arrange the tour was excellent and prompt, which was great since we only booked a week in advance.

The guides were great, excellent English (one of the guides had studied in England). The tours were informative and an excellent choice, since there is no way that I would have been able to visit all the sights.

Best Tour Agency of Bangladesh!

My buddy and I went on a 6 day trip to Old Dhaka and the Sunderbans. Bangladesh Unbound took very good care of us! The owner Farjana wants to maintain the highest quality standards and we could truly feel that: A proper welcome at the airport, good English speaking, very friendly and knowledgeable tour guides, and good accommodation.

Don’t try to do it by yourself, book with Bangladesh Unbound and relax!

We Recommend Bangladesh Unbound without any Reservations

We recently went on a 2nd tour with Bangladesh Unbound, after we had been to Sylhet and Jaflong last year. Again, we were very happy with all the arrangements. Arafat Rasul, our tour guide, was organising everything perfectly and again he was very knowledgeable about the places we visited.

We liked the train ride from Dhaka to Srimangal – it is very entertaining to sit on your seat and watch life inside and outside of the train passing by. There is never a dull moment! (more…)

Communication with Bangladesh Unbound was always prompt, polite, and accommodating. Masbah (our guide) and Liton (our driver) were waiting for us early when we got downstairs at our meeting point. They answered all our questions, made us feel safe, and honoured the requests that we made. Liton was a very calm and safe driver this is not always the case in Bangladesh we’ve had some others that were a bit more aggressive. Masbah was a very knowledgeable young man who kept us well informed all day. (more…)

Experienced much More than my Previous Visit

On my previous three trips to Dhaka, I’ve hired a car and driver to take me and my travelling companions to the lovely area of Sonargaon. This time, I discovered Bangladesh Unbound and booked their Sonargaon Day Trip for our group of five. Our guide was warm and knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Our driver was skilled and careful in the hectic traffic. Nothing was too much trouble for them – there was never a hint of impatience with our desire to linger longer in various places.

The absolute highlight of the tour was our visit to the char where we met so many lovely village people. I saw and experienced so much more than in my previous visits to this area. I recommend this tour company most highly, and I will be booking further trips with them on future visits to Bangladesh!

Excellent and Took Care of Everything

Bangladesh Unbound called this a ‘classic’ tour of Bangladesh and it certainly provided a real taste of the capital Dhaka and the south of the country. It included a comprehensive look around Dhaka, a “rocket” boat trip to Bagerhat in the south, the many mosques of that reason and then an atmospheric train journey back to the capital.

Our guide Arafat was excellent and took care of everything (including most meals), a reassuring presence has given the often challenging nature of parts of the country.

Bangladesh Unbound the Top Tour Operator in Bangladesh

The guide (Masbah) and driver were very friendly and keep their energy positive all day long. They made a good effort in making us happy. They even got us a Bangladeshi sweet. Overall, it was evident why Bangladesh Unbound has rated the top tour operator in Bangladesh, it was because they made their staff and employees happy and therefore it reflects happy customers and then happy company/shareholders.

Keep it up!

Bangladesh Unbound has put Together an Excellent Introduction to this Wonderful Country

I was on the Bangladesh Unbound Scheduled Group Tour in February. Wherever we went we were made to feel special: on the four-cabin boat in the Sundarbans delicious food and snacks would magically appear from a tiny kitchen space. And from here we made quiet forays up the narrow canals in a small canoe to observe the wildlife. My favourites were the birds, especially the various kingfishers and golden orioles. Accompanied by a forest ranger with a rifle we felt safe from wild boars or tigers (rarely seen). We had to be satisfied with the early morning sight of tiger footprints in the mud. (more…)

Great Dhaka Street Photography Tour

I went on a guided photography tour with Masbah, starting with an early morning visit to the bustling and very photogenic Kawran Bazar and finishing with a boat ride on the Buriganga river. I managed to get some great photos a lot of which I would have never been able to take without the help and local guidance from Masbah.

Highly recommended!

Experience the True Dhaka with Bangladesh Unbound

We took in the old Dhaka day tour, booking and payment were very fast and smooth, everything was very professionally handled.

On the tour day the guide picked us up from our hotel in the morning to start the tour, we visited several sites around town, enjoyed some local food and did a boat ride in the river.

Our guide Arafat was very knowledgeable of the history of the places, we could ask questions about almost everything. I especially enjoyed the rickshaw rides in the crowded narrow streets of old Dhaka, where you can experience the true Dhaka.

Highly recommended, If you are staying in Dhaka for tourism or business, contact these guys!

Masbah and Liton showed me the best time as we did the old capital and photo tour of old Dhaka. It was an experience I will never forget, the people the food and the sights were incredible. Masbah was very knowledgeable and made sure we went at a pace where we missed nothing.

I highly recommend Bangladesh Unbound for all trips in Bangladesh, very experienced and professional.

We had a Very Nice Time!!

We booked our 18 days tour via Bangladesh Unbound in Sylhet. This was a very good experience. The Tour had a good variety of places to see in Bangladesh. The Tour Guide was excellent and was proud of his beautiful country. The guide is punctual and always right on time. He takes his initiative and also leaves space for special wishes. Hotel accommodation in Bangladesh is not on a very high level however the Hotels during our was luxurious. The highlight of the tour was the 3 days boat trip to Sundarbans. Also, the means of transport were in the right balance. Boat, Vans, Trains and TukTuk’s a very nice experience.

We had a private tour, so just the two of us without a group. The price of the whole tour could, knowing the prices in Bangladesh now out of my point of view a little lower. Conclusion a very nice tour which a will recommend to everybody who likes to visit this beautiful country Bangladesh. We had a very nice time!!

Truly was one of the Best Experiences in My Life

I arrived in Bangladesh without a plan. I contacted Bangladesh Unbound and in one day Ms Farjana worked her magic and organized a 15-day tour for me. Normally 2 to 3 months advance notice is required to plan a tour like this. In 15 days I toured Dhaka, spent several days in Sylhet and Jaflong (India border) and the tea gardens and national park in Srimangal. (more…)

Extremely Happy with the Company and the Guide

From the moment we got in touch with the owner until we left Bangladesh we have been extremely happy with the company and the guide Masbah. We have booked a few days trips from Dhaka (Sonargaon, Photo tour).

The highlight of the trip was the rocket steamer to Khulna and the return trip to Dhaka by train. A trip we will never forget. Rocket boat was clean and nostalgic. The hotel in Khulna was good enough for one night. If you read the travel warnings against Bangladesh you think you go to a warzone. This was our second visit and we would highly recommend the country and its people.

Bangladesh is a Wonderful Country, with Wonderful People

New Dhaka visiting many sights of cultural and historical significance. We loved making our way around Old Dhaka’s narrow and colourful streets by rickshaw.
Bangladesh may not be top of everyone’s holiday destination list but that’s partly why we visited and we are so glad we did.

We spent a week in the country as part of a month’s travelling in South East Asia and it was up there as one of our favourite experiences. (more…)

I will recommend the tour to others who want to experience the “real” Dhaka.

While seeing the main sites in old Dhaka was a treat, the Photo Tour allowed us to explore non-tourist areas, especially the massive market where we took many photos of friendly, smiling faces. Highly recommend!

About a fortnight ago we made a brief 3 day stop in Dhaka, we booked the Dhaka City Tour, to say we were satisfied is an understatement, our tour guide Mushfiq was professional, punctual and knowledgeable, He knew more about Dhaka than we imagined and when we requested some personal places of interest, they were included without extra cost.

Communication before our trip to Dhaka with the Bangladesh Unbound management was perfect, communication was always consistent and prompt, and airport pick up and drop off were pleasant and on time.

Thank you for making our trip most enjoyable.

Dhaka is Incredible and a Photographer’s Dream

I had a weekend in Dhaka so booked two tours with Bangladesh Unbound – the Dhaka City Tour on Saturday then the Photography Tour on Sunday. Everything was professionally done from start to finish starting with pickups on time on both days. Had Masbah as my guide who was excellent at providing proper perspective into not only the sites visited across Old Dhaka but also helping me understand Bangladesh more generally. I highly recommend both tours – Old Dhaka is a great way of seeing all the key sights in an easy but intense one day, while the photography tour shows you what life is like away from the tourist sites.

Bangladesh Unbound Tries to do the Right Thing for its Customers

Bit hesitate before book tours with this new company. My wife encourage me to go ahead as she loved to support women empowerment, especially Muslim women. We went on the Dhaka City Tour and the Old Capital (Sonargaon) Tour with Bangladesh Unbound. The guide was Mushfiq for both, and the driver was Liton. Arranging the date of the tour was a bit touch-and-go, as we booked quite a last minute. Although I happen to speak Bengali, the great advantage of hiring a knowledgeable guide like Mushfiq and a company like Bangladesh Unbound is the relationships they’ve built up with local small businesses or the gatekeepers at certain historical sites, so that access is arranged ahead of time. In as chaotic a place as Dhaka, saving time and effort is a godsend. Throughout, Mushfiq checked that we were comfortable and kept an eye on the schedule, making an effort to be on time despite the understandably horrific city traffic. This in itself, I found to be amazing – in a country where no one seems to care much about this kind of thing. (more…)

From the pre-tour communication with Farjana to the tour itself led by Masbah, everything was very good! They were efficient and organized and I felt I could trust them.

Farjana designed very interesting itineraries for her tours and she helped me to choose the best one according to the length of my vacation. She replied to my numerous questions very fast. She was very attentive to details. And I joined a scheduled tour. So I had a companion for most of my travel – a girl from Norway. It made my trip cheaper a little bit. And it was a piece of good luck to meet such a nice companion as she was (It’s always a real pleasure to meet wonderful people when you are a solo traveller and when being so far from your home and family).

We’re a bit scared of the situation as we just want to go outside of Dhaka after the Cafe Siege incident on July 2nd. But Farjana sends one of her best guides to Dhaka to pick us up and take us to Sylhet. She instructs the guide to be with us 24/7 so nothing could happen to us and also arrange police escorts in most places we visit in Sylhet. Not only that Farjana asked her guide to drop us at our place safely in Dhaka too. That’s I would say customer service. (more…)
