Over the last 25 (Twenty-five) years our company has been providing tourism related services to individuals and corporate clients covering the entire region of South-East Asia and especially Bangladesh. The most prominent of these services has been provided in the form of organized trips to the Sundarban Forest. Since 1995 we have been operating these trips with the help of our cruising boats “M.L.Bonbibi”, “M.V.Chhuti” & “M.V.Aboshar” – specially built for that purpose. Over this period we are proud to say that, in Sundarban alone, we have handled over 25,000 tourists, both local and foreign. We remember a time in the not too distant past, when the Sundarban were considered dark and inhospitable – certainly adverse to human habitation, but also difficult to visit. Dense and impenetrable jungles – the domain of the mysterious and elusive Royal Bengal Tiger, humid weather that proves hazardous to photographic equipment and very negligible logistical facilities denied us the pleasures of enjoying the beauty and diversity of the world’s largest stretch of littoral mangrove.
Under these circumstances, since the mid-eighties, our organization came forward to venture into this vast mysterious forest with necessary logistics for the adventurous tourist and the photographer alike. Worldwide reputed TV teams, like BBC, ABC, NHK, DW, Discovery Channel (India), Cicada Films availed our services in the form of all kinds of logistic supplies required for making the films inside the forest. On numerous occasions, famous individual still photographers from abroad as well as groups of native photographers took our help.
In 2001, we have built the “Hillside Resort” in Bandarban, which is unique in all respects. We are very proud to say that within this very short period of time it has become a very popular place for both local foreign tourists. This is, in fact, the only one of its kind in the country and a perfect place for your retreat. At present with different categories of rooms, we can accommodate 40-50 people at this resort. Our resort is only 2 hours drive away from Chittagong. In the attached restaurant named “RestoraRiggreKhyang” varieties of local and international cuisine are available. Options are there for trekking and sightseeing, and, best of all, tribal cottages with an incomparable view of the Sangu River flowing through the valley below.
As a private tour operator, we have been in the business in this country for the last 25 (twenty-five) years. In April 1989, Mr. Hasan Mansur, the founder and present Chairman of the company, with his experience of long 10 ten years working as the tour leader for a Swedish Company (LAS och RES), started this organization with only 3 people. Presently we are over 95 people working in this organization and have developed our own logistics in the form of transports, boats and branch offices, and this has only been made possible because of hard work and dedication by all the members of the Guide family.
Our regular, river-cruise and sightseeing tours are quite popular among the expatriate community living in Bangladesh. Many Bangladeshi people have also started to take these tours. We arrange all kinds of transfers, book accommodation, arrange and organize seminar, conferences, and meeting, provide language guides and air-conditioned transport to our valued customers from both home and abroad.
We also have outbound tours to neighboring countries like India, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, Myanmar, Thailand , Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos.
Getting little support from the authority and some financial assistance from some institutions, we have plans in the near future to build our own accommodation and related facilities at
Srimongal, Rangamati & Cox’s Bazar. We also have plans to improve the quality of our existing regular river-cruise & sightseeing tours by adding a new boat to our logistics coupled with better transport and more experienced guides.
