Beautiful tour to undiscovered treasures of Bangladesh

My daughter, her friend and I booked the Rocket Steamer Tour in September this year. We all really enjoyed this tour with Nijhoom Tours. The guide, Nayeem, was very professional. We were impressed by his knowledge about all the different places we visited, and his English is also very good.

I had been a bit anxious as I think it is not too common in Bangladesh for three ladies to travel on their own, but there was absolutely no situation where we would have felt unsafe or uncomfortable. Nayeem looked very well after us and made always sure that everything went well. He also took us to two good restaurants for lunch. We enjoyed the nice and fresh Bangladeshi food very much.

I had known Liton, the driver who drove us around in Dhaka, from previous tours with Nijhoom. It’s always a pleasure to meet him. He drove us safely through Dhaka and picked us up on time at the airport when we came back from Khulna. It’s easy to communicate with him (his English is good), his manners are excellent and his big smile is an additional asset.

The driver from Hularhat to Khulna and Jessore was a very good driver too. He drove not too fast and safely. As he did not speak any English, we communicated through our guide with him which was no problem at all. Although the roads are quite bad between Khulna and Jessore, the driver managed to drive us to the airport safely and in time.

The tour itself was really nice. The rocket steamer is quite basic and might be a bit of a shock at first sight, but once you’re on the boat, it is very nice. We even had AC in our cabins and the staff looked really well after us. And it’s beautiful to wake up on the river and watch the landscape passing by.

The sights we visited in Bagerhat surpassed my expectations and I was impressed by their beauty. The 60 dome mosque and the surrounding gardens are beautiful and well kept and I’m surprised that this area is not more known as a tourist spot.

An added value was the drive through the beautiful landscape while visiting the different sightseeing places. I just love the views of green paddy fields, villages, small lakes and rivers.

In Khulna, Nayeem took us to the fish market in the evening. This again, was a great experience, as the market is very lively and colourful.

I was again very happy with Nijhoom’s services. Everything went smoothly and in a friendly, professional way, from the planning and adjusting of the tour to our requests, to the booking, paying and the final tour itself.
