Seeing the famous sites is a must, but it’s those memories of wandering through a little village, tourist attraction in Bangladesh or sharing dinner with a local family that leave a lasting impression. At MAM Holidays Bangladesh, we take the time to help you discover a destination’s story.
- Go beyond the highlights:
Of course we want you to see Bangladesh. But imagine then heading to an out-of-the-way village in Bangladesh, learning about rural life with locals and tasting fresh, home-cooked Bangladeshi cuisine.
Our small group tours take you beyond the must-sees tourist area in Bangladesh and delve into the heart of a destination, guided by the knowledge of a born and bred local.
- Less to think about, more to write home about:
Our prices include all major expenses, so you only need to budget for additional meals, optional activities and personal purchases. The price of your trip covers:
- a highly experienced MAM Holidays Bangladesh tour leader
- sightseeing and entrance fees
- airport arrival transfers
- all transport and accommodation
- 24 hours local emergency support.
- many meals (as indicated)
- gratuities for services received as part of your tour package
- additional specialist guides and porters where needed
- cheap flights to Bangladesh
You'll never travel with other people, so there's plenty of time to soak up the sights, sounds, smells and tastes in every sightseeing spot, town and village. Fundamental to our philosophy is the belief that tourism should benefit the places it touches.
Small groups naturally lend themselves to more respectful and meaningful travel: the environmental impact per person is smaller, we can stay and eat at smaller locally run places and our tours use our local operators, providing employment for local leaders, guides and porters. All our trips are carbon neutral, and each year we help support a variety of community and conservation projects around tourism Bangladesh.
Our passionate local tour guide:
Our tour guides are the best – their knowledge, humor and experience are the real highlights for our travelers. Five years ago, MAM Holidays Bangladesh became the best travel company of its kind to exclusively employ local leaders. Instead of importing ‘tour managers’, we led the way by finding and training educated, passionate and naturally curious people who were born and raised in the places they would lead. Our local leaders unlock a unique side to their region that large coach tours and independent travelers could never hope to see.
- Comfortable accommodation:
Consider MAM Holidays Bangladesh as the softer side of adventure travel. We’ve minimized the occasional discomforts, smoothed down the bumps and rough edges, but have kept the spirit of discovery intact.
We choose our accommodation based on its character, convenience and comfort. Where we can, we prefer to use smaller hotels that reflect a region’s style rather than larger global chains. A central location, private bathroom facilities and air-conditioning are all part of our selection criteria. When we venture into more remote areas, like Sylhet or Srimangal, we often stay as guests of local people for tourism in Bangladesh.
Although this style of accommodation may mean you have to sacrifice a few creature comforts, the trade-off is a truly unforgettable experience. Should a trip visit Bangladesh homestay or well-equipped campsites, this will be clearly highlighted in the trip notes.
- How we move around (transport and travel pace):
No matter what transport we take, we like to take it slow. We’re not about rushing from highlight to highlight: our itineraries are deliberately paced to reduce long travel times and give you a relaxed experience at each stop along the way.
At MAM Holidays Bangladesh, we’re all about the journey to travel in Bangladesh. If you have to get from A to B, we’d like you to do it with as much comfort and character as possible. The vast majority of your transport will be wholly private and is usually modern, air-conditioned minibuses with great safety features. This gives you a smoother ride and more flexibility on when and where we travel with our tourist guide in Bangladesh.
If the route is a short one, we may mix things up with a quick trip on a first class public bus. From one city to another city, we take overnight sleeper trains to help cover more ground (these always come with proper beds and private cabins). These probably won’t be your primary means of getting from A to B, but they make the journey in between a whole lot more fun.
Every year we take thousands of solo travelers around the world. All our trips are twin-share (ladies share with ladies, gents with gents), so for the vast majority of trips there is no additional single supplement to pay. Of course, if you’d prefer to have your own room (at a little extra cost) we can arrange this on most trips. Just ask our friendly sales team when you book for Bangladesh attractions.
Although our trips are set at a leisurely pace, some are a little more active than others. Obviously a tour focused on walking or cycling will require a decent level of fitness, but there are other physical factors to consider before you book your trip.
Europe, for example, has more stairs to navigate than other destinations, particularly in museums and hotels. In Asia, during certain times of the year, the humidity and heat can make even a short walk a lot more challenging. You may also be faced with some uneven ground, especially around ruin sites or when we venture off the beaten track. It’s important to read the trip notes carefully and research widely to make sure a trip is right for you. Should you have any questions, our specialist travel experts are ready to assist you.
- Independent experiences and journeys:
While we feel that travelling with a small, like-minded group only adds to a holiday experience, we also recognize that some travelers may prefer to travel with just their friend or partner. To accommodate this, we’ve crafted a brand new way of travelling with us.
- Self-guided walking & cycling:
The beauty of a self-guided tour is that we take care of all the hard work involved. From providing a detailed map, accommodation and transferring your luggage between hotels, so that you’re free to explore how you choose on foot or bike without any hassles.
- Private group and tailor-made trips:
Families, friends, sports teams, yoga classes, photographers, foodies – you name a group and chances are we’ve taken them on a private tour. Our experts love designing itineraries to suit your needs. Simply choose the dates and your travel companions and we’ll do the rest.
