Many thanks for taking the time to leave feedback. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your time on safari, though we're sorry you didn't find it as exciting as you'd hoped - it's intended to be a simple, tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of city travel, with plenty of relaxing downtime, rather than a particularly active adventure....

We were in India for 6 weeks before we came to Jaisalmer. We had heard mixed reviews for fellow travellers about camel safaris, mostly negative. Being animal lovers, we were worried about the way the camels are treated but we needn't have been with Trotters. Yes, it is a little more expensive then other safaris but the extra rupees are...

Trotters has no association with any camps and has no safari option that includes a visit to a camp - you have clearly posted this review in the wrong place. We will be requesting its removal as soon as possible. More

We took a 2 day, one night tour. Guides really pulled out all the stops. 3 full hot meals daily. It is a peaceful adventure and respite from the busy/loud city streets. This is not a trip for someone who wants to be constantly busy or get far out in the desert. Since food is not catered, guides do all... More

Did a desert safari camel tour starting in the morning and returning next day at noon. We had a great group of guides led by Sobu. We were really taken care of with nice food, everything cooked in the desert, warm blankets and mattresses for the night and a camp fire. Sobu even sang us a desert song. The experience... More

I have been in Jaisalmer 3 weeks and this is the first tour I went on. My patience paid off because the weather was amazing! The tour is well thought out and planned to a T. All members of the staff are personable and ready for all questions. Jalam operates an amazing one-man show in the office. It's truly impressive... More
