Messbaul took me on a wondeful trip around old and new Dhaka, including my requested visit to the Mother Teresa orphanage. I learned so many interesting facts about the history and modern day life in Dhaka. I always felt extremely safe and well looked after. I would thoroughly recommend this tour, especially as Messbaul went out of his way to cover what I wanted to see, including accompanying me on a shopping visit and lunch in Aarong craft centre. A fabulous day.
