We may not be the best, because there is always better. Our style is different and unique; it took us a few decades to develop our path. Our knowledge and experience create a strong bond among our guests and Bangladesh, its culture, nature, and people. Upper-class service ensures our guests’ safety, comfort and turns the trip into a lifetime memory. We know exactly what we owe to our guests, our culture, nature, and the community we are part of! Our guests deserve a lot more than just visiting the sites. Your trip to us is a journey with friends, as we share our knowledge and life experiences and introduce you to our culture. Our 90% repeat guests are more interested in the life stories and community engagements behind the museum. Therefore, our tours are more of a cultural and life-event interaction program with resilient and inventive locals. History can be learned from books and the Internet. The only way to experience reality is to be present here with the people, seeing by yourself, and that completes your story collection, which is not yet written anywhere. We are always here to assist with all necessary travel arrangements around our playground.
We are very good at customizing the travel plan according to our guests wishes. A trip without a connection to the local lifestyle and culture is not something we enjoy much; you probably have the same opinion. We are part of a very small education and development network for underprivileged children in Bangladesh. The family of our foundation’s children presents a superb opportunity for a nationwide homestay.
Royal Bengal Tours is a perfect match for travelers interested in Bengali culture and its people. To us, tourism is not only about visiting places; more of an opportunity to learn from what we see. Here, 200 million friends await to welcome you with their cuisine, sights and cultural activities.

All production companies need to apply for Filming Permission and relevant (journalist) Visas to the Bangladeshi Embassy in their respective country, along with a detailed list of all equipment to be brought into Bangladesh, a synopsis, and the full details of the film crew members.
Our company, as the local agent, will pursue the required permissions with the related Government bodies and offices (the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Home Ministry, the Ministry of Information, and Civil Aviation). In case an invitation letter is required, our company can issue these for the film crew members. However, we are not responsible for any refusal or delay of permission or visa.
Please note that the Government of Bangladesh requires every foreign film team to accommodate one Government officer during the entire filming period. His/her travel, accommodation, meals, and gratuity costs need to be covered by the production company.
Transport, accommodation, and other logistical support can be arranged locally to fit our requirements. Transport arrangements always include a skilled driver and a well-equipped, safe vehicle. Accommodation upon arrival in Dhaka as well as on location can be arranged through us. The Government representative will meet the team upon arrival at the International Airport and assist the crew in clearing customs upon arrival as well as departure.
Royal Bengal Tour has also earned a very good reputation for vehicle rental services in Bangladesh. Our drivers are very experienced and punctual, and all the vehicles are air-conditioned and very well-maintained. We can provide you with any type of vehicle, from economy to top-notch luxury. Just let us know your requirements, and we’ll make a quick offer for you. The price usually includes a fresh-conditioned vehicle, an expert driver, fuel, parking fees, tolls, and ferry charges. We offer airport pickup and drop-off services and private tours in and outside of Dhaka. Terms and conditions for Monthly car rental services will depend on the area and situation in which the car will be used.
Vehicle Hiring Methods:
- Package: this term will include all possible expenses and your will be offered a set rate. In that case, we need to know the exact travel locations for a correct calculation of fuel consumption, road expenses, driver allowance, and overtime.
- Pay-as-you-go: We will offer you a set cost for a vehicle rent per day basis and you will bear all the other expenses on the spot including fuel, toll, parking, ferry, drivers meals & accommodation (if applicable during the overnight stay outside of Dhaka city).
Some information to keep in mind before hiring a vehicle in Dhaka, Chittagong, Sylhet and Sreemangal area:
All sedan car and mini van’s has both fuel and CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) energy system active in the vehicle. CNG is a little bit cheaper, environmentally friendly and we have our own CNG mines in Bangladesh. Therefore, these vehicles are equipped with an additional CNG Tank on the back trunk of vehicles. These tanks are quite big and consume luggage space. The back trunk of a sedan car is not enough to accommodate two big luggages. Same with the minivan. If you want a car without a CNG tank (we call them a fuel car), you should be specific on the inquiry. Any SUV, Bus and luxury branded vehicle does not use CNG energy system. And there are several versions of Pay As You Go; you can get a car with a fully loaded fuel tank, and you will return the same, and bear all the expenses while using the vehicle according to our vehicle usage and expenses terms.
Royal Bengal Tours provides experienced Fixers/Translator for assisting film crews in the field. They will coordinate all logistics, time schedules and helpers. If required, they will also act as translators (English/Bengali).
For other language translators, we will recruit suitable persons. Assistants for camera or sound can also be provided locally.
