FAQs on Dhaka City Tour

Why book Dhaka City Tour with Nijhoom Tours?

Because you’ll have a great experience on our Dhaka City Tour, as we are a multi-award-winning local tour operator in Bangladesh with vast local knowledge and the highest quality. We have the highest number of reviews in Bangladesh on TripAdvisor (350+ reviews) from our clients with an average rating of 5 on 5. We’ve been featured in International Travel News Magazine multiple times, published in California, USA. By directly booking with us instead of the OTA platforms that sell other companies’ tours and charge them a hefty commission, you are also supporting a local small business instead of the big foreign corporations.

How is your Dhaka City Tour different than the others?

Customer safety and comfort are the priority of our tours. We'll always use life vests during boat rides for the safety of our customers. We'll put at most 3 pax on the boats at Buriganga and never overload them to save a few bucks. We'll provide a safe driver and a comfortable, decent, clean car with air-conditioning to navigate the hectic Dhaka traffic for long hours. We'll not squeeze you into the middle seats of the vehicles to save money. Everyone will get a comfortable window seat. We'll be cautious about food safety on the tour so that you don't become sick from food poisoning, which is common in Bangladesh. We'll take you to restaurants that maintain good hygiene. We'll not be late to pick you up and give excuses for the traffic. Nor will we annoy you by taking a few dozen selfies with you on the tour and posting them directly on social media. We'll provide a knowledgeable guide with a good manner on our Dhaka City Tour, who will be able to tell you in detail about all the sites on the tour. Communication with us will be a breeze. Paying us will be hassle-free. With us, it will be a pleasant and memorable experience for you.

Important Notes

  • Dhaka City Tour is available to book any day of the week, year-round.
  • All the sites on this Dhaka sightseeing tour will remain open on Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Ahsan Manzil will be closed on Thursday and will open after 03.00 pm on Friday. Lalbagh Fort will be closed on Sunday and will open after 02.00 pm on Monday. The rest of the sites will remain open seven days a week.
  • There will be a heavy rush of local tourists at Ahsan Manzil on Friday afternoon, being the weekend.
  • Ahsan Manzil and Lalbagh Fort will remain closed on government holidays. You can have a look at them from the outside, though, during these days.
  • Dhaka officially ranked as the second least livable city in the world. There could be incredible traffic in Dhaka sometimes when everything stops at every intersection.

  • Be prepared to walk a lot on this tour, and wear shoes accordingly.
