This was the first of two visits with Siraj from Cittagang visits. Much obliged Siraj, and our driver for an incredible day. We went to Sonargaon and saw notable structures as well as truly fun children who were so agreeable and quick to meet me; Panem which was astounding and had such an intriguing outing across the waterway to a little town, again to be met with invitingness and graciousness. An incredible outing - especially when trapped in unbelievable downpour returning with transports being washed under the bridge flood pipes, prompting more noteworthy blockage than expected. try not to pass up on the chance to go out traveling like this: it gives you such knowledge into this captivating nation and its kin.

This was the first of two tours with Jafar from Taabu tours. Thanks Jafar, and our driver for a great day. We went to Sonargaon and saw not only historic buildings but also really fun kids who were so friendly and keen to meet me; Panem that was amazing and had such an interesting excursion across the river to a small village, again to be met with friendliness and courtesy. A great day out - particularly when caught in unreal rain coming back with buses being washed under the overpass overflow pipes, leading to greater congestion than usual. don't miss the opportunity to go on a trip like this: it gives you such an insight into this fascinating country and its people.

This company was really wonderful to work with! I booked the wrong day originally; they were very nice about it and helped me rebook. Also, I am a solo female traveler so was a bit nervous and they put me completely at ease. I had two guides and a driver who were all professional and fun to be with all day. I felt safe the entire time! The sites were beautiful, especially the ancient city. If going to the fishing village, do not forget to bring candy for women and children. The entire trip was enjoyable and very professional. ** as a visiter, you will be asked to take photos with many locals. If you are uncomfortable with this, I would mention it to the guide
