Great experience, and we had some extra time so my wonderful guide Rabi took my to some additional sights.
Great day touring Bangladesh

My tour guide Jafar was great. He spoke English very well and I understood every word. I had many questions about Bangladesh and Islam and he answered all of them. Very nice guy and if I come back for more tours I will try to get him. The flow of the tour was smooth and all stops very interesting. I liked the local lunch spot he chose and he knew his way around with no hiccups. The driver Mr. Nasir was also excellent and we toured in his personal Toyota car.
