This was one of the best things we did whilst in Rajasthan, and not only because it was interesting to learn about the Bishnoi way of life. The best part of the tour was our guide - Deepak. He is such a nice, genuine, honest, loving man and it made the day really special. Before doing this tour we'd been... More

I had an excellent experience on this tour manned by Chotu, he was friendly and the tour pace was very relaxed. We saw plenty of wildlife on the way, several village families, a demonstration of how pottery is done and a meal with Chotu's family. I would definitely recommend this tour for the open minded traveller looking for an intimate... More

Of course it's taylor made for tourists. But the Bishnoi villagers are friendly and show you their homes and customs. You get to understand their everyday life. And learn about the Bishnoi philosophy.

Please ignore the poor reviews. This is one thing you really ought to do when you are in Jodhpur. Dhanraj is one of the most courteous guys i have ever met. The whole experience is overwhelming. Do not skip at any cost. Also, please have lunch at Mr. Dhanraj's house. His wife is an excellent cook and the food will... More

Would not recommend to travelers unless this is your ONLY chance to get outside the cities in Rajasthan. We didn't see anything we hadn't already seen while driving from Udaipur to Jodhpur and passing through small towns near Ranankpur. (Note: The Bishnoi look like every other rural villager across Rajasthan so it's not like they are a special tribe that... More

This place is totally wastage of time. If you ever been visited to any village, the same feel you will get here nothing new. Its better to visit your own village because there also you will get the same view. For me its totally wastage of time and money.

Interesting Sight was the large open area including water bodies with large number of Siberian Cranes, black bucks,and a bunch of golden deers. Deers , black bucks and plenty of peacocks were seen crossing the safari route... More

It was a really different and interesting 'safari'. We were collected from the hotel on time by Mr Dhanraj, and taken to some Bishnoi homes, a shepherd's dwelling and some local artisans. On the way we were also shown some widlife, such as Siberian cranes and a variety of other birds, blackbucks and antelopes. Mr Dhanraj was very knowledgeable and... More

My daughter and I were collected from our hotel and right from the start nothing was too much trouble for Deepak and our driver. we were very lucky to see several groups of Black Buck swell as flocks of cranes and other birds. We were fascinated by the visit to the villages, and the Dhurry weavers skill was exceptional. Our... More

A pleasant and fairly edifying interlude in a Rajasthan sojourn. Dhanraj has a good understanding of the villages and the social equations therein. We managed to spot a couple of black bucks, an antelope and Siberian cranes in flocks. Great to see potters, printers and weavers at work. We stopped by at one of the numerous but pricey arts and...
