A must do in Dhaka City!
Feb 2020 • Couples
I cannot say enough good things about this day trip! From the start to the very end Jafar our guide shared a lot of interesting local facts about Dhaka City and it’s amazing history! He kept us entertained and even shared things that my Dhaka residential friends were not aware of.

We recommend this day trip for anyone- solo travelers, couples, friends and large families. There’s something for every traveler! Shahid was a skilled driver who easily navigated the city, traffic and it's many neighborhoods with ease making sure to get us quickly to all the sights.

If we were in Dhaka longer we would take Sonargaon Tour they offer....maybe next time! Thanks SO much to Taabu Tours for a fabolous tour and many memories!

Feb 2020 • Family
We had real great time on our tour! We were first timers to Bangladesh so we did the tour our first day there. This worked out great because we saw so much and knew what we wanted to do the rest of the days in this country! The tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. Our driver was one of the most expert driver we have ever seen. I think this was an excellent choice to do the tour on our first day. Would highly recommend this tour!!!

A Day of Unforgettable Trip
Jan 2020 • Friends
I am still thrilled to have seen such a unique city , old and new, through the special angle which Taabu Tour provided to me yesterday. The ship yard trip was awesome and all the hot spots visit was very exciting and meaningful. I enjoyed the day very much! Jafar is such a sincere , considerate, enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide that I have already recommend him to all of my friends in China and USA since I am an American Chinese.

Jafar was very courteous, prompt in response and pick up exact on time. I am a woman traveling alone but I feel safe with him guiding me. He showed me all the famous places in old Dhaka plus some extra stops.
I got to see the city view from the top of the municipal building, visit Karwan bazaar, saw how chicken was prepared in Halal way and all different types of fruits and vegetables. We walked around Hindu street and he even showed me a typical home. A boat ride in Buri Ganga river and rickshaw ride in busy streets of Dhaka were memorable. At the ship yard, I climbed up a long ladder to top of a ship being repaired. Many highlights of the tour include witnessing an Islam prayer, interesting people watch at Lalbag fort, visiting beautiful Ahsan Manzil and Curzon hall light up for Victory day celebration and tasting delicious chicken biryani.
The sights and sounds and smells could be overwhelming but at the end of the day it was worth it. I highly recommend Taabu Tour to anyone wishing to experience the real Dhaka city. Thank you Jafar for being such a wonderful guide!

great Old Dhaka tour with friendly guide
Nov 2019
Unfortunately Jafar was busy at that time so i made the tour with another very good guide Badal, he made the tour very enjoyable and was a great company he knows how to entertain his guests, we visited on private car, rickshaw and walking on foot mainly, the lunch place was good quality food and plenty, he made me try bael fruit which was a very interesting tasting experience.
overall I highly recommend this agency, Jafar was always reachable by email and whatsapp when I had any question, he is very professional at arranging any tour in Bangladesh, he was also able to provide me an affordable guide tour with permit to visit Bandarban area.

Excellent tour
We recently completed a wonderful tour of Dhaka and nearby areas in Bangladesh with Taabu Tours. This was a fascinating and memorable experience. We especially enjoyed our time with Jafar our guide. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and well organized which meant we had the opportunity to see many major sights and learn so much about this area and the people of Bangladesh. We highly recommend touring this area and believe we were very fortunate to have the extra benefit of Jafar's warm personality and knowledge.

Friendly and efficient... just perfect for a flying visit to this crazy city!
Oct 2019 • Solo
Before coming to Dhaka I researched a bunch of potential tour agencies, with Taabu making my shortlist amongst others. Where it excelled was that while not being the cheapest (and you need to get your head round the fact that NO tours are particularly cheap in Dhaka - which is initially a bit of a shock!) then the itinerary offered and the speed/professionalism with which the comms are dealt with were head-and-shoulders above the other companies I contacted. These were ultimately the reasons I chose Taabu.

Having chosen, the payment procedure was simple and secure using PayPal, which added confidence too.

On the day of my tour my friendly guide Jafar arrived within 5 minutes of the agreed time (which as I was to find out is some achievement given Dhaka’s insane traffic!) with a driver Shahid... the former spoke good English and was both knowledgeable and friendly, the latter didn’t speak English but was clearly proficient at navigating the crazy traffic - so it was a good combination!

The tour lasted ALL day, from 0800 until 1930, and included all of the “typical” city sights that they had on the itinerary, plus some cool extras (the shipbuilding area) added, together with a couple of places I’d specifically asked to visit to (ie the Liberation War Museum).

The tour also included lunch at a “nice” restaurant... ie clean, air-con, good food (biryani obviously haha!!)... which acted as a good respite for an hour halfway through the day.

I enjoyed the first day so much and felt very relaxed with these guys that I booked for a second day tour too - this time to Sonargoan. Whilst very different from the city tour, this was also interesting and worthwhile - not least because of the interactions with the young local school kids who all wanted selfies with possibly one of the first white people they’d ever seen! During this time Jafar wasn’t only my tour guide, he was also my bodyguard :)

Anyway, to summarise, I’m very happy with Taabu (and Jafar) and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them/him to anyone else looking for a guide in and around Dhaka!
