We joined 3 other travellers on a 6-day tour, the highlight of which was the 3-day boat trip in the Sundarbans. The first day was spent in Dhaka where we explored the old city with our guide, who stayed with us for the whole trip.
We then travelled by ferry overnight, in a basic cabin, and the next day we visited the Mosque of Bagerhat, which was truly impressive. The following day we embarked on a 3-day boat trip in the Sundarbans, and although we did not see a tiger, the trip was truly memorable.
The food was very good, and Ali proved to be a very knowledgeable guide. We went on several rides in a small boat up inlets where we saw a lot of wildlife. We were the only people there.
We found the company could accommodate some additional requests for us.
We found Bangladesh to be safe, and the people were very welcoming, as they do not see many foreign tourists. We would certainly return to Bangladesh to see more of the country and can strongly recommend Nijhoom Tours.
