The amazing staff made the safari (3 days 2 nights) a memory which will last a lifetime. They go waaaay out of their way to make you feel safe, happy and comfortable at all stages of the tour. Sobu aka the desert man was inspirational, to say the least. The countless stories and moments of laughter made us all become... More

Basically we take a 1 day and 1 night journey. They pick us in the train station give to us a room in a hotel for a shower and rest a bit. After we leave the hostel for going on the camel.

We went three days and two nights, starting 6:30 a.m. and finishing on the third day 5:30 p.m. There are many camel safari companies and lots of hotels and guesthouses offering a camel ride. It's hard to say what's 'best', especially because we only have one point of reference. It's a well experienced company and it could offer an experience... More

We took 2 days 1 night camel Safari through them. We booked it at the evening and they pick us next morning. They took care of all our needs, and always with big smile. The food was amazing freshly cooked in front of us. The camel ride was fun! We really enjoyed with you. Thank you

What an amazing experience we had with Trotters. We did the 2 nights, 3 days in the desert and enjoyed every minute of it. There was plenty of great food, the guides were always looking out for us and the service we had was more than we hoped for. Sleeping in the desert was a must, with the beautiful stars... More

We did a two nights/three days camel safari with Trotters and it was a really nice experience. Our camel driver/guide/cook Pussa was really knowledgeable and made our safari enjoyable. In addition to the safari itself, the transport to and from the desert and the cheap room we got after the safari makes Trotters a no hassle, all inclusive and overall... More

We have been in India for 3 months and our 2 night/ 3 day safari with Trotters was one of the best experiences thus far. We highly recommend our camel driver, Malo. Excellent food, chai and company at every rest stop. The camels were extremely happy and well behaved. Listened to verbal commands and light kicks. Worth every penny!! Throughly... More
