I had a great time with Boju, malu and punja on the one night off the beaten track tour. They were extremely kind and funny. My favorite part was spending the night in the desert in a "five million star hotel". It was a bucket list experience I would recommend to anyone.

Fusa Ram, Mama, and Madan took good care of us on our overnight camel safari, shepherding us to and from our hotel, preparing delicious food over a camp fire, joking and conversing with us, and making things fun for our 7 year old daughter and putting her at ease by letting her ride a camel with Fusa Ram. The trio,... More

We recently spent our night under the open sky at Thar desert of Rajasthan through Trotters. The only other thing which matched fascinating beauty of desert was support and hospitality of Jalam and his team. The trip was inclusive of nice hotel rooms for shower, breakfast, dinner, snacks, pick up & drop services and ultimate night out experience at desert.

On of my friend insisted to travel Jaisalmer with Trotters and that came with one of the most unexpected surprise one can get. Jamal & his team are superb, friendly and co-operative. Few best things are desert stay , hospitality , genorosity of team and most important they are not taking undue advantage of being traveller.

My husband and I went on a 3-day 2-night camel safari and had a fantastic time! Our guide and cook Ponja was excellent, spoke English very well and ensured that both we and the camels were taken care of at all time. The 3 days allowed us to explore different aspects of the Thar Desert - local villages, sand dunes,... More

I have never written a trip advisor review before but the past few days have motivated me to write this one! I cannot thank Malu enough for such a great few days. I would 100% recommend him as a tour guide and would definitely suggest asking for him by name if you are wanting to guarantee an incredible guide! He... More

Great tour the experience of riding a camel was wonderful. Guides are very friendly and answer any questions.
