Complimentary pick up on arrival in a jeep, which took us to the Trotters Head Office for a brief introduction to the safari we were expecting the following day. We received a discount at their Hotel for one night. The safari started early in the morning and even though it was fun, we would recommend starting in the afternoon to... More

We went for the afternoon safari, which consisted of a Jeep trip out to the desert, stopping at an oasis and an abandoned village, followed by a 2 hour camel ride across the desert to an area of sand dunes. There we were provided with snacks and beer (a reasonably priced extra!) before watching the sunset over the dunes. This... More

Served by a very competent staff (ask for Jalam) Trotters that takes its pride in working with Camel farmers. For a reason, it is recognised as the best safari address in Jaisalmer. They offer off-the-beaten-track journey in the desert. I went there with two friends, we booked the 2.30pm - 11am tour and we rode camels for 2x2hours, saw a... More

Enjoyed the camel ride into the desert. We did the one and a half day and was well worth the price. That being said, our guide poussa was fun and sang songs

Trotters is recommended by Lonely Planet and after being on one of their camel safaris, I can understand why. They are the only honest safaris organizers who genuinely take you on "off-the-beaten" tracks, meaning they truly bring you to non-touristic place, unlike other business that claim the same. Also, they take good care of you. I was with my girlfriend... More

We made a booking for Trotters half day safari to the desert. The booking person in their office who called himself "Jalim" (tyrant in Hindi) was quite knowledgeable and helpful. He charged us the standard rates for four adults and there was no charges for our 9 year old grandson. On june 30, 2015, at the appointed time their Mahindra... More

I booked for the same day and the joined me with another people, was good. They did like they offered so any complaint. Simple dinner but a lot of quantity. Staff friendly, prices in the average.

I knew it in my heart that I wanted to do get a very specific kind of experience from the DUNES@jaisalmer. I knew a "frozen" safari package that caters to small children as well as elders, will not satisfy me. Thank God I came across TROTTERS. Don't want the camel ride but wanna spend more time at the sand dunes... More

This was by far one of the best experiences we have had during our three months in India. From the outset we had decided we wanted to go to Jaisalmer to do a longer camel safari of four nights and five days - which we couldn't recommend more.
