It was great experience. Messbaul could not make it but he arranged my tour according to my needs (airport pick up, adjusted itinerary and routes) and found a great replacement to take me on the tour. I brought a big suitcase with me but the tourguide, Milan, gave me a place to put my luggage in his hostel (Travel Homes) nearby the airport. Milan, being local, has a good knowledge on the places in Old Dhaka and knows good spots to enjoy the view!
