Beautiful alternative for visiting in person

Great tour

The Dhaka topi tour really shows you a good impression of the city Tansen. The guide speaks very well English and gives a good explanation about the things he shows you. Also he akes the time to answer questions. The temples are nice to see and also the local handcraft. It vertainly makes me curious to see, some day, Tansen in real. Keep it up!

A very nice tour to explore and discover Tansen . The guide has a good knowledge of the history and about the several skills in the village. He speaks English very well. There is so much to tell that the tour even was to short.
