I recently returned from the 6 day "Sundarbans Excursion With Rocket" with Nijhoom Tours. I can honestly say this trip far exceeded my expectations. The owner Hasan was very easy to deal with. E mails were promptly answered. He met me at the airport, explained everything and made me feel welcome right away. My guide Arafat was simply outstanding. He accompanied me on the trip and made my tour special. Also he is an outstanding photographer and sent me copies of his pictures. There was so much variety in this trip that it would be hard to explain. The modes of transportation alone were amazing. I was always comfortable and at ease on the trip. Hasan and Arafat made travelling in a difficult country easy. I would recommend this company to anyone with the slightest sense of adventure!
Bangladesh may not be top of everyone's holiday destination list but that's partly why we visited- and we are so glad we did.
We spent a week in the country as part of a month's traveling in South East Asia and it was definitely up there as one of our favorite experiences.
We visited in November 2016 and although some people have been put off by worries about security, we felt perfectly safe particularly in the hands of Nijhoom Tours staff.
Firstly a big thank you to the company owner Hasan. He really couldn't have been more helpful, always responding promptly to the various queries we had in the planning of the trip.
Our guide for the week was Masbah- a terrific guide. With excellent English, he proved to be resourceful, knowledgeable, punctual and a great all round traveling companion.
We began our week with a tour of old and new Dhaka visiting many sights of cultural and historical significance. We loved making our way round Old Dhaka's narrow and colorful streets by rickshaw.
We had hoped to travel down river over night to the Sundarbans by the old steamer, The Rocket, but unfortunately weather prevented any boats traveling that night. Hasan and Masbah were pretty determined that we would make the trip somehow and we eventually managed to get to Mongla by train and car.
We spent the next few days on our own boat called the Seagull. It was much larger than we had imagined with a small crew including a captain, chef, wildlife guide and armed guard. Everyone was so courteous and helpful. Special thanks to Ali our wildlife guide.
The Sundarbans is a remarkable treasure, and we hope it will remain so. We saw salt water crocs, hundreds of birds, monkeys, wild boar, deer and otter. Although we weren't lucky enough to see a tiger we did see fresh footprints so it is clear they are there.
On our return from the Sundarbans we spent a whole day trip to Sonargaon- and that was fascinating too. Much more to it than a visit to what was the old capital. A really excellent day which included a number of stops, a boat trip and visits to three villages on an island to really see local agricultural life.
Bangladesh is a wonderful country, with wonderful people and we would highly recommend it.
We're back again! Had a three week trip in 2013 and just had to come back
So here we all are again with Hasan- 9 days into another three week trip
Sunderbans were magical- Bangladeshi hospitality is amazing and people so helpful and friendly
We had a great time on the Old Dhaka tour! We saw a ton of stuff - Dhakeswarri Temple, the Star Mosque, Lalbagh Fort, Sadarghat, the Hindu neighborhood of the Old City - basically all the most famous sites in Dhaka! We also had a great lunch at a local place that is famous for its chicken biryani. Our guide Setu was great - very friendly and knowledgeable.

The tour guides were SO FRIENDLY! Great English and really accommodating with food. They took us everywhere, for the price it is SO SO worth it. We will be doing more tours when we are back in Dhaka.
