It was a very nice experience to sand dunes in non-tourist area. The staff of Trotters is specially very courteous and helpful. One good thing was that the staff carried away any waster material left on the sand dunes by some unconcerned tourist. They prepared very good food and snacks and made all the people in our group feel comfortable.... More

Dear Mahesh - thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We enjoyed reading it and are pleased that you had a great time on your safari. Thank you for the suggestion about providing a light. The problem with this is that it would attract flying insects, which is why we suggest that people bring their own small... More

Other travelers should note that the Thar Desert is not like the Sahara or deserts in the Middle East- it is mostly dry shrub land with only a few dunes. On the plus side, we camped near one of the few dunes so it was fun to enjoy those in morning/evening. Also, I've done camel riding over dunes, and trust... More

We had a great time with trotters. With miss communication between our guide and the driver we found that we missed out on going to the village, oasis and a temple. We arrived early by accident back at trotters office. "I'm not happy." I said. I explained what happened. " we want 200 rupees back each" ( to make it... More

We came for a 2 night 3 day safari in November. Its by far a better idea to stay more than 1 night as you get into the off the beaten track, get into relaxed mode and just enjoy the quiet. Nights are cold. We bought sleeping bag liners, thermals and down jackets to wear at night. Amazed at some... More

Dear Melissa - huge thanks for your comprehensive review. It's very much appreciated. Spending an extra night or two out in the desert does, for many people, seem to push the experience into extra-special territory: we're thrilled that it was so for you. We'll pass on your thanks to Sarif, Sola and Joga (so close!). Thanks again - hope to... More

There are primarily two deserts – Kuri (I was told that the latter one is not good) and Sam (being better one has become too overcrowded and commercial and dirty).. Chose Trotters based on reviews on tripadvisor since they claim to take you on ‘off-the-beaten tracks’. ,, but was disappointed.. As per itinerary mentioned in the mail I received from... More

Paid 500 Rs more for new years eve. (Total cost over 2000rs) Loved it all...camel ride + dunes + food + sleeping. Bring blankets with you as it reached freezing temperatures in the desert and the bedding they provided wasn't enough. Staff were helpful throughout, providing extra food too. Food did come quite late though. Minor issue. particularly like the... More

This is a genuine tour operator. We got a lifetime memory with this trip. We opted for an evening package. A jeep came to our hotel and the guide and driver were very decent and polite. They showed us the Amar Sagar lake, Khamba fort, the oasis in desert and finally we reached to the Sand dune which they owned.... More

We took the overnight safari (1 PM to next day 11 AM). We were four: two adults and two kids (12 yrs and 10 yrs). It was the best decision that I took to choose Trotters.

Many, many thanks for your review. We're really glad to hear that we were able to provide you with a memorable safari, and we do (of course!) agree that, if you're looking for a tranquil and genuine experience, the off-the-beaten-track route is far superior to the touristy Sam Sand Dunes.
