We took the village jeep safari near the end of July and really enjoyed it. Our driver/tour guide’s name was Raj. He is very easy to talk to, extremely knowledgeable, and knows the area and the people in the villages. He allows plenty of time for you to look around each village. He is very flexible and will move to... More

Dhanraj, the guide is a helpful person speaking great English, (good for us). The trip through the Country side is very interesting. As he lives nearby, he knows people, landscapes, animals, trees etc. Pottery and durries carpets are a must to visit. The jeep ride is fabulous. Will come back for sure.

Desert safari was the highlight of our trip... from pottery experience to a drive into the desert spotting the blackbuck... one of the best experiences. It was very well executed. Amazing climax to the tour was the typical lip smacking rajasthani lunch. I had never had such a grand feast. Recommended to all... if you love food and culture!

Our guide and owner of Bishnoi Village Safari, Deepak, was very friendly. His speaks English well and is knowledgeable about the area that you will explore as he is from that area. The tour is a bit contrived, but our family visits were the highpoint of our Jodhpur visit. Our 8 year-old son loved riding in a jeep for 4... More

This tour is multi-faceted. I saw interesting demonstrations of pottery and weaving. The pottery demo was fantastic! Travel can be a learning experience and today was no exception. I went on the safari to see the wildlife and things got wilder than I expected. We stopped in one Bishnoi village where in honor of my arrival they made Amal which... More

The young woman, Neha who lead our tour was wonderful. She shared information about her life and took us around to the villages to see how these people live. We were then served a delicious meal (the best we've had in India so far). Highlight of the trip to Rajasthan so far!
