I had a great time on this tour, I'd highly recommend it. In the morning Messbaul picked me up from my hotel, we drove to the dock and he led me to my seat on the boat. At this point he left and I had a great journey on the boat in a window seat, enjoying some amazing views over breakfast. Once I disembarked I was immediately met by Messbaul, a very nice guy who led me around Barisal. Later, embarking the paddle steamer, he led me to my private cabin and I enjoyed a good nights sleep. Thanks guys.
