We booked our trip with Trotters following a recommendation from friends and we weren't disappointed! We were picked up from the bus station and taken to the Trotters office to finalise the details of our tour. We then dropped the bags that we didn't need on the safari at a hotel room before heading out to meet the camels and... More

Perfect compagny to book for this kind of trip. No trap, really serious people, nice and helpfull. We just took the half-day with road trip in jeep and camel ride of 1h30 (it was enough). The dinner in the desert, in the middle of sand dune was really good and we stayed long enough to see the stars and to... More

My husband and I did the over night camel safari and had the most amazing time. Our guides (Chotarah and Govinda, unsure of spelling) were so helpful and friendly towards us. My husband was unwell with food poisoning (not from the safari) and they took great care of him, making sure he had enough food and water. Sleeping out under... More

I volunteered here in April of this year for one week and was able to go on a camel safari during the end of my stay. The guides were good fun,scenery was beautiful, and the food they prepared was amazing (and plenty of it!) I would definitely recommend going through this company compared to a few of the other ones... More

It was a great experience. A must do when visiting Jaisalmer and this is a good company to do it with. It was cheaper than I thought it would be and the overall experience was very special, from the ride to the food and sleeping under the stars. One complaint I would have is that we were rushed in the... More

Before I paid for this safari, I made sure that other tourist were going. I even told them that if I arrived and other tourist had cancelled etc. That I would have to get my money back. I was booked for an overnight (7am to 11am the following day). When I arrived, there were three other tourist there. A couple... More

My husband and did 3 days 2 nights and loved our experience aside from a couple of things that left a sour taste in our mouths. Pros- -sleeping on the dunes is so peace and the stars truly feel unreal -they try to group you with like minded travelers which is really nice -they drive you out further so that... More

I visited Jaisalmer in January this year and decided to do a tour with the Trotters. Yes they are a little more expensive than other tour companies, but you get what you pay for (there is a reason these guys are in the lonely planet!!!). The company is very professional, the guides are extremely helpful and friendly, and the camels... More
