I paid around 1600 for a two day / one night safari, and it was worth it. They brought us to a place where no other tourists were, just our group. The dunes place was not that big, but beautiful. A minus you get for the camel ride. I wished I could ride the camel by ny own, a little... More

Many thanks for your review. Regarding riding alone, if you'd asked your guide you would've been allowed to do this at least for a short while - we have to be careful because if people aren't experienced riders it's safer for the camels to be roped or led but if anyone wants to try riding alone (especially if you have...

This agency is very popular, nevertheless it gives good service, especially the guides. They understand the importance of good reviews on social media, so they will give the "western" standard service. They have fixed prices for safari, that means no need to negotiate, straight forward: Sam Dune/Khuri = 1400 (for 2 days 1 night) and their "original" route is about... More

We (a couple) did a 3 days/2 nights safari and had a really good trip, each of us on our own camel. Among the highlights of the trip was sleeping under the stars (which is particularly good when you are in the desert as there is no other light, and you can see many more stars than in most other...

Many thanks for your review. We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed the safari and that you were able to experience travelling alone with just your guide - large groups suit some and smaller groups suit others, so it's good that you had a chance to discover your preferred option! Best wishes from all at Trotters. More

Our experience with Trotters was amazing - both the service and the activity. They picked us up from the bus station and let us stay in a hotel room and get some rest (we were on an overnight bus and didn't sleep much) until it was time to leave for no extra charge (this was during low season). They took... More

Trotters Camel Safari is great. I went on an overnight Safari. Left Jaisalmer at about 3 PM in the afteroon and returned by around 10 AM the next day. They charge about Rs.1400 for food, camel, etc. It is value for money. I felt safe despite being an Indian lady travelling alone. The staff are friendly and the service is... More

Thanks to Malu and Tutra I had a memorable and enjoyable stay. The camel riding was so much fun, the food was delicious and all staff were helpful. I felt safe and looked after.

I arrived in jaisalmer very early in the morning on the train - there were many touts hassling to try and sell me their camel safari package, but I decided to wait and walk around town and see what other options there were. I visited several companies, but trotters seemed to me like the best option and I'm so glad... More

Very early in the morning we set off from the centre of Jaisalmer and we're driven around 30 minutes to a desert paddock for a breakfast of fruit, toast and chai while the camels where gathered. After an introduction to who we took to calling the desert men or men of the north we were introduced to the camels and... More
