I had a 3 day customized tour with Modhu Tours last week and my guide was Amin. I had a 3 day customized tour with Modhu Tours last week and my guide was Amin. First day we did the Old Dhaka tour by rickshaw and by boat. It was a surreal experience for me and I enjoyed every seconds of it. The second day we went to Sonargaon Old Capital that was absolutely amazing! Then we headed back to Dhaka’s Sadarghar Port where we caught a ferry to Barishal. We stayed 1 night on a comfortable ferry which was for the first time for me ever. I really enjoyed it. Third day we went to a fish market first and then we hired a boat and visited the floating market where people were selling various things, such as timber, vegetables, fruits, rice, etc. We went back to Dhaka on a public bus in the late afternoon. During this tour Amin was with me all the time, he was a guide, a negotiator, a translator, a bodyguard (wasn’t needed :)) and the most important, a friend. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Bangladesh, he is funny and his English is superb. He made sure that I only had quality local food during our trip. Without him I couldn’t have done such a great trip. Thank you Modhu Tours, thank you Amin.
