Fantastic experience - really immersive tour around Old Dhaka. Our tour guide Afridi was great, really knowledgable and went above and beyond to cater the itinerary around key sights we wanted to visit. As a result we were able to include pretty much everything you could hope to do in Dhaka into a single day - I couldn't recommend highly enough!

I had the most incredible tour of Dhaka with Afridi, in fact the best tour I’ve ever had. He was calm, kind, knowledgeable and flexible to our interests and preferences. His reflections on the sites, in excellent English, really helped to deepen my knowledge of this ancient country. Afridi is a young, intelligent and interesting person whose passion for life can’t help but rub off on you. Plus he took us to eat the best biryani I’ve ever tasted :) I left with a huge sense of warmth towards the country and its people. Thanks for the memories.

Deshghuri was strongly recommended to me by a world traveller friend who visited Bangladesh last year. We did a five-day trip visiting Dhaka old city, Panam city and taking boat down to Barisal to explore local villages, Unesco sites in Bagerhat and see otter fishing tradition. Sajjat is very responsive, helpful and always makes effort to customise the program to meet our needs. He himself guided me to the flower market and Karwan market early in the morning. Other guides are also informative and friendly. The guide in Barisal took us to the old market which is not in the program. We wouldn’t have chances to experience this impressive way of life if we were to do it ourselves. Bangladesh is a very interesting country despite being chaotic where people driving crazy and using horn all the times. Everything here is real, no setup for tourists. Everywhere we have been to people are welcoming and smiling :)

I just finished ten glorious days of travel in Bangladesh. I couldn't find a lot of information online, so I opted to take a tour. I was traveling solo and Deshighuri had a reasonably priced tour that covered a lot of the places I wanted to visit. I was a little hesitant as I don't normally like tours (they can feel canned and not authentic) so I prefer to travel solo. BUT I am so happy I chose to go with Deshighuri because it wasn't your run of the mill group tour. Everything was excellent and personal. I felt like I was traveling solo with my new Bangladeshi friend. The tour guides were excellent and helped me have a lot of authentic experiences in the country that I wouldn't have had the opportunity to experience if I were solo. The restaurant choices were excellent local places and I got to try all the local foods but with the confidence to know that they were clean and hygienic spots that were tried and tested. I knew I was eating at the most delicious spots that each location had to offer! I did the Dhaka city tour and 3 days in Srimangal with Badal- what a fantastic guide! He was informative and knowledgeable. Super experienced and best of all he was responsive to my interests. Nyan was another excellent guide. He is young but was a lot of fun and also very knowledgeable. Thank you everyone for an unforgettable time in Bangladesh! The warmth and friendliness of its people is the thing I will never forget! Looking forward to a return visit sometime!

I normally like trying to explore places on my own but I am so glad that I used Deshghuri as we would have been quite lost on our own. As a woman traveling with a child, it was really nice to have the car, driver and Mani our tour guide to show us around. The driver did a fabulous job of navigating the (in)famous Dhaka traffic. Bangladesh isn't quite set up for tourism yet so it is nice to visit while things are still raw and undeveloped. Sonargaon was picturesque and beautiful. It was nice to walk in Panam City and also see the Goldi Mosque. We didn't get to explore the craft museum as much as we would have liked but it looked very interesting. Old Dhaka was a trip - such a heady mixture of color, sound and noise. We enjoyed all the sights we visited especially the boat deck and the Pink Palace. I do wish that we had gotten more history of some of the city and the sights but I wonder if my half pints presence was the reason we didn't really delve more into it. I did enjoy tasting the local food. That was a definite highlight and I was glad for all the explanations on how to pair foods etc. Super fun and so delicious. You guys really should think about doing a street food tour or food tour in Dhaka. Couple things for any other foreigner: 1. Postcards are not readily available. I didn't see any at the airport either. I did see a few at the Pink Palace but there was no one actually selling them. They were tacked on the wall. Souvenirs in the traditional sense are not easily found. 2. Traffic is insane! When you read about it you don't quite believe it but you should. It took us four hours to get to the airport. Four hours to travel 19km. So trust your tour guide or driver for the right time to leave.
