What You Can Expect

Old Dhaka Discovery Day Tour

Ahsan Manzil - Old Dhaka

Get picked up from your Dhaka hotel via an air-conditioned vehicle. You’ll be transferred first to the Dhaka Parliament House, a historic building designed by American architect Louis Khan.

From 9:30 until 11:30am, you'll explore Dhakeswari Temple at Dhaka University, a frequent gathering place for Dhaka Hindus. Then proceed to Star Mosque, an appropriately-named Muslim center that’s adorned with stars, and an Armenian Orthodox Church, stopping by the National Museum en route.

Stop for a lunch of local Bangladeshi cuisine midday, after which you’ll proceed to Lalbag Fort and then to Dhaka’s port area, also known as “Sadarghat.” If there's time, board a boat for a glimpse of daily life for those living along the river.

For visitors taking the trip during Ramadan, head next to a vibrant street food market that held in the short window of time before sunset and after sunset. For those not visiting during Ramadan, explore Banga Bazaar, where you can hire a horse cart ride or investigate the Nilkhet book market. Finish the day with a drop-off back at your Dhaka hotel.

Great tour - you get to see all the major sights of Dhaka. My guide was friendly and knowledgable and very accommodating. Tip: it's cool to take a rickshaw in Old Dhaka during the tour, but sometimes it can be slow-going so at some point you'll want to consider traveling on foot to save enough time for all attractions.

Dhaka is such a vibrant city, there is so much to see and I don't regret having taken a guide to show me around. I had a very nice experience with my guide Badal, who managed everything despite traffic, showed me all major monuments, shared about his culture, took me for boat tour on Buriganga river, we also had a delicious Biryani and even time for shopping at the end! Highly recommanded, thanks a lot Deshguri and Badal

I would say it was an WOW experience. the guide sajjat was just fantastic. if you like to see people, culture with some heritage of bangladesh this tour is perfect. What i loved most in this tour is just because of my interest in people, sajjat modified the tour. covering everything of itinerary, he took me to a place near shaderghat where i found extreme reengineering, recycling and reuse of car parts. it was amazing. THANKS. i do recommended them and best of luck fr deshghuri. i wish i had more time in Bangladesh....
