A Recent Review of this tour

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!
